SpaceX Delay May Mean 36,000 Wormy Passengers Are Too Old for Their Planned Experiments

SpaceX Delay May Mean 36,000 Wormy Passengers Are Too Old for Their Planned Experiments

SpaceX on Wednesday had trouble sticking the landing with one of its reusable rockets. The company expects to start launching station crews next year.

After a 24-hour delay due to bad mice food, SpaceX is targeting Wednesday afternoon to launch supplies to the International Space Station from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

A SpaceX Falcon 9 makes a splashdown after having problems approaching its planned landing zone.

The extraordinary mission will ferry 2.5 tonnes of supplies to the the orbiting laboratory, including materials to support 250 experiments.

On Monday, it launched a Falcon 9 rocket from California's Vandenberg Air Force Base, which was headed to space-and the record books.

A Falcon 9 begins to spin wildly on its landing approach.

Tom Cruise gives lesson in TV settings and 'motion smoothing'
Anyone else will likely never miss the effect, but they will notice its absence next time they watch a film. Turning off this effect is an easy process, once you know what you are looking for.

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 booster, covered in black soot from its two prior flights, landed again on an ocean barge in the Pacific Ocean after launch, queuing up the rocket to fly for a fourth time. Remarkably, it seems SpaceX may still be able to recover the rocket.

"Appears to be undamaged and is transmitting data".

SpaceX's 12 previous ground landings - dating back to 2015 - all were successful. "Given this event, we will likely add a backup pump & lines".

This is SpaceX's 20th launch for the year 2018, surpassing its record number launches by two.

After separating from the second stage, and firing its engines to return to Earth, a video camera on board showed the first stage spinning. The Dragon capsule will deliver more than 5,600 pounds of food and supplies to the crew, as well as scientific experiments, including the Global Ecosystem Dynamics Investigation, which will measure the impact of climate change on the world's forests. It's scheduled to arrive Saturday morning.
