SpaceX launches cargo, but fails to land rocket

Moldy Mouse Chow Delays SpaceX Dragon Launch to Space Station

Moldy Mouse Chow Delays SpaceX Dragon Launch to Space Station

The launch was delayed for a day because of a problem with food for the mice.

Above all else, it's important to remember that the primary mission - sending Cargo Dragon to the ISS - continues to proceed nominally.

According to Associated Press, a Dragon capsule and its 5,600 pounds (2,500 kilograms) of cargo, was launched into space on Wednesday from Cape Canaveral in Florida.

Just two days earlier, three astronauts arrived at the space station to join the three already there.

However, the launch was marred by a system failure on the rocket which caused it to land in the sea, instead of on land at Landing Zone 1 (LZ-1) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida, as planned.

Brazil star Neymar , who was third a year ago , was a lowly 12th despite a domestic treble with Paris Saint-Germain. Modric's win is on the back of an extremely successful season both domestically and internationally.

However, the Falcon 9's payload fairing - an enclosure that protected the satellites during launch - missed a landing net on the barge and ended up in the ocean. The rocket landing was not required for SpaceX's main mission: delivering 5,600 lbs. Investigations on the International Space Station are organized by both NASA and the ISS National Lab.

It's Christmas, even if you are located millions of miles away from the earth, into the space.

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. Arranged by a Seattle-based company called Spaceflight Industries, launch is SpaceX's 19th mission of 2018. For the first time it was used may 11 in mission Bangabandhu, and then August 7 - the mission of Merah Putih. According to the CRS-16 mission overview, after the Cygnus leaves the space station for the first time, it can navigate to a higher orbit and release the cubesats.

A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket vaulted off the pad from California's Vandenberg Air Force Base on Monday, tearing its way through unusually clear blue skies on a path to secure at least four company records before deploying dozens of spacecraft. Those projects will test dental glue and a plant-watering process for space.

After separating from the second stage, and firing its engines to return to Earth, a video camera on board showed the first stage spinning.
