SpaceX launches cargo to space station

Postado Dezembro 08, 2018

After a 24-hour delay due to bad mice food, SpaceX is targeting Wednesday afternoon to launch supplies to the International Space Station from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

Starting in March 2017, when SpaceX staff was finally able to get a practical concept of renewability in the use of their missiles, and many interesting and illustrative test runs was made - however, at first, the rocket company way or another passed through the stage of fix, modification and replacement of more parts after the next landing.

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

"Appears to be undamaged & is transmitting data". Liftoff is targeted for 1:16 p.m. EST, or 18:16 UTC, from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida.

The mission had been a complete success until the aborted landing. That ticket gets viewers less than 3.5 miles from the launch pad and gives them a great view of the launch. It should reach the space station at the weekend.

Meanwhile, the Dragon spacecraft continues on its way to the space station, carrying fresh mouse food; new science and engineering experiments; and plenty of other goodies. Those projects will test dental glue and a plant-watering process for space. The Dragon spacecraft used by NASA and SpaceX to send the supplies to the station is expected to arrive there Saturday. It's a badge of honor on the @SpaceX Dragon capsule, launching today! It's the first time that's happened since the groundbreaking launch of the company's Falcon Heavy spacecraft in February. The newest residents will remain on board for six months, while the others will return to Earth on December 20. Newcomers Russian cosmonaut Oleg Kononenko, NASA astronaut Anne McClain and Canadian astronaut David Saint-Jacques will stay until June. The Dragon is scheduled to return to Earth in mid-January. The Dragon capsule will deliver more than 5,600 pounds of food and supplies to the crew, as well as scientific experiments, including the Global Ecosystem Dynamics Investigation, which will measure the impact of climate change on the world's forests.
