  • SpaceX's CRS-16 mission has been delayed on account of moldy mice food

The us space Agency NASA on the day (from 4 to 5 December) was postponed sending the Dragon with food supplies for the worldwide space station.

The Falcon 9 will blast off from Florida's Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

The 10:34 a.m. Pacific Time (1:34 p.m. ET) mission, labeled SSO-A for Seattle-based Spaceflight Industries, took 64 spacecraft in a specially designed deployer to orbit, but not before the rocket's booster became the star of the show with a liftoff and drone ship landing.

The SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket that headed skyward this week is carrying a whole bunch of important cargo.

Landing Zone 1 is located only 1,000 feet away from the Atlantic Ocean, which makes a last-minute detoured water landing attainable in the event of a malfunction. According to the CRS-16 mission overview, after the Cygnus leaves the space station for the first time, it can navigate to a higher orbit and release the cubesats.

Thus, the project and the vision of Elon musk, founder of SpaceX, is gradually becoming more real and versatile, not to mention the fact that he accumulates a lot of additional features.

Senators introduce bipartisan resolution to blame Saudi Arabia for Jamal Khashoggi's death
The students who wrote the letter argued that MIT's collaboration with the Saudi government helps to sanction a bad regime. Trump alluded to this business relationship in a statement absolving Saudi Arabia of the murder.


However, the Falcon 9's payload fairing - an enclosure that protected the satellites during launch - missed a landing net on the barge and ended up in the ocean. SpaceX was scheduled to launch the Falcon 9 carrying the supplies on Tuesday but delayed the launch until Wednesday. It should reach the space station Saturday. The rocket hovered just over the water, then toppled out of view - the first failure over land in the last 12 tries, though that's not quite how one of SpaceX's top engineers painted it.

Along with the food, 40 mice and 36,000 worms were also sent to the space for study goal.

Most recently, a Falcon 9 that launched from California included a booster with two previous launches under its belt.

Watch on NASA TV below, or at NASA's website, or via SpaceX's own webcast. The company expects to start launching station crews next year.

Once the Dragon craft arrives it's expected to stay on board attached to the ISS for five weeks until it's sent back to Earth full of research that has finished its time in space and return cargo, according to NASA.
