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

SpaceX launched the holiday shipment on a Falcon 9 rocket, which pierced the clear, chilly sky. This launch is scheduled to be the 16 of 20 that SpaceX was contracted to do for NASA.

CEO Elon Musk took to Twitter soon after the breathtaking loss of control and expected landing time, stating that the SpaceX team now pegged the failure on a grid fin's stalled hydraulic fin, which ultimately caused the wild spinning seen in the webcast.

The current crew members of the International Space Station comprise two Americans, as many Russians and one German and a Canadian.

The most recent previous landing failure for SpaceX was the core first-stage booster on its debut Falcon Heavy launch; the two side boosters made a flashy synchronized landing, but the central booster crashed.

"Appears to be undamaged & is transmitting data".

The launch was delayed for a day because of a problem with food for the mice. A fresh stock of food was brought in for them from California.

Forty mice depend on the food for the Rodent Research-8 project, which studies aging.

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 all goes well, about two or three million ones will come back to earth.

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

The us space Agency NASA on the day (from 4 to 5 December) was postponed sending the Dragon with food supplies for the worldwide space station. Those projects will test dental glue and a plant-watering process for space. Since the year 2012, SpaceX has continued making space station deliveries for space agency NASA.

The mission comes days after India fired a rocket carrying 31 satellites into space.

In late August, sensors detected a small pressure drop in the station's air supply that was traced to a leak in the upper habitation module of the Soyuz MS-09 vehicle.

A SpaceX commentator later called it a 'bummer, ' but noted it was secondary to the main mission of getting the Dragon capsule to orbit. Coverage of Dragon's rendezvous with the space station will begin at about 2:00 a.m. PST, or 10:00 UTC, on Saturday, December 8.
