SpaceX launches Dragon cargo, but fails to land rocket perfectly

SpaceX launches Dragon cargo, but fails to land rocket perfectly

CEO Elon Musk further noted that Falcon 9 B1050 - despite landing in the ocean - was intact and still transmitting telemetry, potentially allowing SpaceX to still recovery the forlorn rocket.

However, the SpaceX first-stage booster, which was supposed to touch down on the ground at Cape Carnival after the lift-off, went out-of-control and crashed in the Atlantic Ocean.

Astronauts who are lucky enough to score a gig aboard the International Space Station make a lot of sacrifices in the name of science.

The booster, 1046, previously flew on May 11 and August 7.

NASA was working Tuesday to replace the rotten food in time for 1:16 p.m. launch time Wednesday.

The launch cargo resupply mission, the 16th carried out by SpaceX, will be broadcast live on NASA TV.

Yield curve inversion revives concerns over economic slowdown
Of course, that's still "pretty doggone tight", said Randy Frederick, vice president of trading and derivatives at Charles Schwab. The yield curve inverted between the two- and 10-year yield before the recessions of 1981, 1991, 2000, and 2008.

Among the new experiments sent to the space station are the growth of ordered crystals of antioxidant proteins in microgravity that can protect the body from the effects of radiation and some harmful chemicals, and a mice study to understand the physiology of aging and the role it plays on the progression of disease in humans.

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

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. It's a badge of honor on the @SpaceX Dragon capsule, launching today!

- 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.

The International Space Station now has six crewmembers; three arrived Monday (Dec. 3), and three have been there since June.

Dragon is scheduled to depart from the station in January 2019 and return to Earth with more than 4,000 pounds of research, hardware and crew supplies, NASA said. Newcomers Russian cosmonaut Oleg Kononenko, NASA astronaut Anne McClain and Canadian astronaut David Saint-Jacques will stay until June. The others return home on December 20, leaving only three for Christmas dinner, not counting the mice and worms.
