SpaceX launches ISS resupply mission

Posted August 17, 2017

The lifespan of even the most sturdy computers and laptops is sized down to just a few months due to space travel and hence NASA has to send new laptops to International Space Station every few months. Then, SpaceX is likely to be back in action at Cape Canaveral in early September, with its first launch of the US military's X-37B spaceplane.

"Congratulations on a job well done", astronaut Andreas Morgenson of the European Space Agency radioed the station's crew from NASA's Mission Control in Houston. Last month, SpaceX became one of the most valuable privately-owned company.

The Dragon is packed with 2,900 kilogrammes of supplies, including a sophisticated super-computer made by Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), called The Spaceborne Computer. As the Falcon 9 is only going to Low Earth Orbit, it will have enough fuel left to attempt a landing by the Florida coast (Update: The landing was successful).

Chelsea: Antonio Conte 'Swoops' For Rival Arsenal's Star Player, Eyeing New Role
Oxlade-Chamberlain joined Arsenal from Southampton back in 2011 for a fee of £12m, since making 184 appearances for the Gunners. And according to recent reports by The Express , it is believed that the England global has rejected the new offer.

In November, SpaceX plans to launch a Falcon Heavy rocket; Elon Musk on Sunday posted video to Instagram depicting the launch and the landing plans for the rocket's three boosters.

An unmanned Falcon 9 rocket is scheduled to blast off at 12:31 p.m. Monday from Florida's Kennedy Space Center.

The mission, CRS-12, will be SpaceX's twelfth resupply mission to the ISS and its eleventh Falcon 9 launch this year.

Powerball, Mega Millions Jackpots Top $350 Million Mark Concurrently
Tickets will also be on sale for Friday's Mega Millions jackpot, which now stands at an estimated $393 million. Lottery officials say that for both games to have such large jackpot at the same time is unusual.

The launch was the company's 11th of 2017.

Fischer and ESA astronaut Paolo Nespoli captured the Dragon using the station's robotic arm.

Venture capital firm sues ex-Uber CEO for fraud
If successful, the Benchmark lawsuit could kick Kalanick off the board of directors, making his return impossible. Uber is now looking for a new CEO, though some have suggested that Kalanick may want to reprise his role.

Despite the relatively high favorability rating, the forecast, provided by the U.S. Air Force's 45th Weather Squadron, indicates the rocket may have to launch through rain. So far, the Dragon spacecraft has already delivered live plants and animals, and many other essential scientific payloads to the orbiting laboratory as well as bringing back to Earth other cargo. The rocket is set to launch from Cape Canaveral, Florida, sending cargo and science experiments to the six astronauts now living in space. Unlike the computers on the space station, which tend to be for specific tasks such as navigation, the HP super computer is a general goal model for crunching numbers for experiments.
