SpaceX launches cargo, but fails to land rocket

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

The SpaceX rocket Falcon 9 Block 5 was launched from Vandenberg AFB in California at 10:34 Pacific time on Monday (20:34 Kyiv time), reports the online edition of the Chronicle.info with reference for a New time. For the first time it was used may 11 in mission Bangabandhu, and then August 7 - the mission of Merah Putih.

Remarkably, the rocket stabilized and was able to land in water as opposed to crashing and possibly exploding on land. The reason is the mold, which is found in food bars. Shortly after the incident, Elon Musk tweeted that the booster seemed to remain undamaged.

The Dragon was the third space station supply ship launched to the station in less than a month.

Ms Meng's lawyer David Martin said the evidence presented does not prove she broke either United States or Canadian law. United States lawmakers have repeatedly accused the company of being a threat to United States national security.

It will arrive with more than 5,500 pounds of supplies and research to support hundreds of experiments that are happening on board the ISS. Moreover, SpaceX expects to begin launching space station crew in the following year. It was also reported that SpaceX and NASA will experience a passenger Crew Dragon capsule. All the earlier SpaceX ground landings, since the year 2015, were successful.

The Falcon 9 is equipped with four fins that rise perpendicular to the body of the rocket as the craft descends, to help slow and control its approach for landing.

Other experiments included in the mission include an effort to measure and perform 3D mapping of Earth's tropical and temperate forests; a test of a robotic technology to refuel spacecraft in space; and two student experiments inspired by the "Guardians of the Galaxy" films.

Family, friends recall the 'profound legacy' of George H.W. Bush
The 41st president was given a home state farewell after a week of national remembrance followed his death on Friday 30 November . The train travelled roughly 70 miles to the family plot on the grounds of Mr Bush's presidential library at Texas A&M University.

The rocket is carrying the Dragon spacecraft in orbit. While the takeoff was a little rocky, if all goes to plan, those staying at the International Space Station over Christmas should receive their festive supplies on Saturday. The newest residents will remain on board for six months, while the others will return to Earth on December 20.

The astronauts on board the International Space Station are scheduled to get a nice resupply of goods in the coming days.

The Dragon spacecraft itself should leave the station and head back to Earth in January, according to Kirt Costello, ISS program chief scientist at Johnson Space Center.
