A very good job of trying to explain very complex and technical theory in these two videos
Boeing’s Starliner has been designed and built for NASA’s Commercial Crew Program, intended to provide ‘taxi’ services for astronauts to the International Space Station. Today was the first full flight test, launching on board an Atlas V from Cape Canaveral the initial flight was flawless. However after separation the spacecraft got confused and maneuvered incorrectly, burning through fuel needed for the rendezvous. Ultimately the spacecraft was recovered by it was no longer in the correct orbit and at this time space station docking has been ruled out. The vehicle will be tested on orbit to make sure all the systems operated correctly before the Starliner returns and lands at White Sands on Sunday.

Was Y2K a possible problem ?
I was programmer then systems programmer and Senior programmer for several companies in the late 1960’s into mid 1970’s. Indeed our records did have just a 2 digit year in all records.
Of course technology improved and and space would have become less important and history would suggest that the problem was foreseen and handled significantly.
Was that guaranteed ?
Of course not.
REPLY: There were computer systems that were the old system based only on a two-digit date. Those systems were predominantly the problem, but they were exaggerated to make it seem that the entire computer world would crash. So in that respect, I was wrong in not addressing the old two-digit systems. They were the minority
