SpaceX rocket sends worms to Int’l Space Station

SpaceX-CRS-14-Launch-on-Pad

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.

SpaceX had planned to land the first stage of the brand-new Block 5 Falcon 9 rocket at a landing zone ashore at Cape Canaveral, but as the rocket descended toward the cape, the live feed from the booster's onboard cameras appeared to show the craft going into some sort of uncontrolled spin.

Elon Musk later confirmed the issue, saying 'Grid fin hydraulic pump stalled, so Falcon landed just out to sea'.

So, we will have to see, if iPhone XR keeps its crown or it gets passed down to one of the two new Pixel phones. It lets you show off the XR's design while also protecting it against drops and scratches, if ever so slightly.


Now, SpaceX head honcho Elon Musk has shared some clearer video of what, exactly, happened and what went wrong on the Falcon's journey back to Earth.

- Three days and 3,000 miles apart, SpaceX is aiming for their second launch this week, this time with a cargo flight to the space station. Another investigation, which will study muscle degeneration, will make use of 36,000 tiny worms. According to NASA, the Rocket experiment will test the reliability in space of a dental glue activated by ultraviolet light, while the Groot experiment will explore an alternative method for watering plants in a zero-gravity environment.

When the Dragon arrives, it will join five other spacecraft already at the station.

And that's enough there to get you excited, to get you motivated as the fighter who is going to be performing on that night. If he wants to be singled out, he's got to obtain all the belts, he's got to leave no doubt.


And the Dragon brings a special treat for one class of spacecraft: It's carrying a satellite deployment system called SlingShot that can fit inside the Cygnus spacecraft's berth to deploy up to 18 cubesats.

See that small space station? The newest residents will remain on board for six months, while the others will return to Earth on December 20. The private company expects to start launching station crews next year. Newcomers Russian cosmonaut Oleg Kononenko, NASA astronaut Anne McClain and Canadian astronaut David Saint-Jacques will stay until June. Today, the uncrewed Dragon cargo capsule is scheduled to blast off from Florida at 1:16 p.m., with the rocket returning for a landing just south of its launch pad. It weighs in at 5,600 pounds, and while much of the shipment is fairly typical of a resupply mission, there's also a very special holiday dinner packed away that some of the crew members will get to enjoy when Christmas rolls around.
