Boeing's Starliner astronaut spacecraft landed Sunday in the New Mexico desert, just two days after faulty software forced officials to abort its unmanned mission to the International Space Station.

The mission was designed to help NASA regain its human spaceflight capabilities, but the landing of the craft Sunday will yield the mission's most valuable test data.

While the spacecraft successfully launched on Friday, an automated timer error prevented the spacecraft from obtaining the correct orbit in order for it to meet and dock with the ISS.
