Recycled capsule launched with supplies for International Space Station

Recycled capsule launched with supplies for International Space Station

On Monday, the SpaceX Dragon lifted off on a Falcon 9 rocket from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida with a delivery of experiments dealing with how the human body, plants and materials behave in space.

Still, the intent alone demonstrated that SpaceX believed it could potentially land a Falcon 9 first stage despite the considerable mass of the satellite, effectively a 15% capability upgrade that would allow SpaceX to recover boosters after all but a tiny proportion. NASA will document the payload's arrival to the space station on its livestream NASA TV starting at 5:30 a.m. EDT. Monster is booked to leave the station in May and come back to Earth with in excess of 3,500 pounds of research, equipment and team supplies.

The effort is part of SpaceX's mission to lower the cost of space flight by re-using costly, multimillion-dollar components that typically have been discarded into the ocean after each launch.

The cargo is being shuttled atop the rocket inside one of SpaceX's Dragon capsules, to the space station where engineers will capture the spacecraft with the Canadarm2 robotic arm, according to a statement by NASA.

Police said the Global Positioning System was instructing a "U-turn" at the intersection "most likely because of an earlier crash with road blockage on SR 407 - which was the original Global Positioning System route from the Space Center for their trip back to Davenport".

"This investigation determines the feasibility of developing improved pharmaceuticals in microgravity using a new method to test the metabolic impacts of drug compounds", NASA said in an update.

T he MARROW study will also look at the effect of microgravity on bone marrow, blood cells produced in marrow, recovery after space missions, and the application of this research to astronauts in future missions as well as healthcare providers on Earth.
