Watch SpaceX Launch Supplies to the ISS Astronauts

  • After mice food delay, SpaceX set for space station resupply launch Wednesday

The Falcon 9 rocket's first stage will attempt a landing at SpaceX's site along the coast, Landing Zone 1. Moreover, when the rocket successfully landed on the court - delivering the ongoing mission of the SSO-A SmallSat Express more than 60 satellites from 35 partners to orbit - SpaceX experts also noted that the missile does not require any lengthy and complicated fix work, thereby indicating that subsequent start will be made, apparently, without any visible technical changes. The company expects to start launching station crews next year.

Dragon is taking 5,600 pounds of supplies, equipment and scientific experiments, including mice, to the ISS. The mission also marks SpaceX's 20th launch of the year.

The first stage engines were expected to shut down prior to stage separation two minutes and 23 seconds after liftoff. For the first time it was used may 11 in mission Bangabandhu, and then August 7 - the mission of Merah Putih.

Add that SpaceX's Falcon 9 Block 5 mostly meet the criteria of NASA for manned flights.

The cause of the rocket's spin, according to Musk, was a stalling out of one of the rocket's "grid fin hydraulic pump".

Defending ties with Beijing, the PM said our relationship with China is not one-dimensional. He also denied accusations that his country was harbouring terrorists from the Taliban.

The stage made a soft landing on the water and continued to transmit data. The launch was originally scheduled for Tuesday, but was delayed.

The launch was postponed by a day as NASA found the food meant for the mice during their space trip to be mouldy.

The bad food was replaced ahead of Wednesday s launch. They had to get new food for the "moustronauts" from NASA's Ames Research Center in California and there was not enough time to do that and meet the original December 4 launch date.

"They're a great model for using to study human changes, even though they're just a 1-mm-long worm", said Timothy Etheridge, the principal investigator of the mission.

The spacecraft, which flew to the space station in February of 2017, is carrying 36,000 roundworms in pouches to the orbiting lab and and if goes well, about two or three million ones will come back to earth. Those projects will test dental glue and a plant-watering process for space.
