Just two days after the launch from California, SpaceX sends another of its Falcon 9 rockets in circulation from Florida this afternoon. The vehicle will deliver deliveries to the astronauts aboard the International Space Station. It marks the 16th cargo mission’s mission that SpaceX will launch for NASA since 2012. And, as usual, SpaceX will perform one of its signature rocket countries after starting and touching a concrete landing plate near the vehicle’s starting point.
On top of SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket will be one of the company’s dragon capsules, packed with 5,600 pounds of food, water, assets and experiments for the ISS member’s six members. For this mission, SpaceX uses a dragon flying once before during the company’s 1
0th resupply mission in February 2017. The capsule spent a month docked on the ISS before it was poured into the Pacific where it was collected and then refurbished before 19659003. This mission uses SpaceX a dragon that flew once before

There are hundreds of different research experiments and technology demonstrations that go ahead with this launch. One of these payloads will help test the processes needed when future spacecraft is sent out in space to refuel satellites. The utility, known as the Robotic Refueling Mission-3, will test the transmission of super-cooled fuels in circulation, which simulates how a service vessel can fill the thought of a satellite already in space. Another payload called GEDI will be on the outside of the station and the beam lasers down to earth to measure the height of our planet’s forests. The goal is to better understand how deforestation puts carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and how new growing trees grab the gas.
Originally launched this launch to go on Tuesday, but the flight has to be driven back due to polluted cargo. The University of Colorado in Boulder sends live mice to the ISS, and the engineers noted that some of the food bars provided by the NASA Ames Research Center had some form on them. “We assume all food is suspected,” said Joel Montalbano, deputy ISS Program Manager, during a pre-launch press conference on Monday. The rods needed replacing before the flight, but it took too long to load the new industry, which resulted in a delay in launch.
SpaceX’s Falcon 9 is slated to lift at 1:16 ET this afternoon from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. The company has an instant launch window, so the rocket must take off at the exact time or start another day. So far, the weather can collaborate for the mission, as there are 90 percent chance conditions favorable to the 45th Space Force that oversees capitals from Cape.
After launch, the first stage of SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket will return to Cape and move down to one of the company’s concrete landings, Landing Zone 1. In the case of the dragon, it will meet the International Space Station early on Saturday morning. That is when the astronauts will use the station’s robot arm to grab the dragon and connect it to the ISS. The capsule is slated to stay about a month before leaving the station and returning to the ground with the results of many experiments.
Both NASA and SpaceX will provide live coverage coverage. NASA’s live stream begins at 12:45 AM, and the SpaceX live stream begins about 20 minutes before launch. Then check out the video of your choice to watch this release live.
