So much advancement has been undergoing in the space world of NASA. I do wish it was possible to multiply the interests of humans who care enough about science to donate their time and wealth. Who knows how much progress science could be standing at today?
I, too, understand what it is like to be a kind of extremist. Now, I’ve learned to believe in the importance of balance. Cancelling the first launch of Dragon 9 disappointed many, but proved to be necessary.
Space X wrote in a Twitter update,
“Standing down today due to upper altitude winds and high winds at sea creating dynamic conditions around the Of Course I Still Love You droneship — next launch opportunity is tomorrow [Dec. 5] at 12:29 p.m. EST (1729 GMT),” SpaceX wrote in a Twitter update roughly an hour before today’s liftoff, which was scheduled for 12:51 p.m. EST (1751 GMT).
Today at 12:29, Dragon delivered more than 5,700 pounds of NASA cargo and science investigations, including studies of malting barley in microgravity, the spread of fire, and bone and muscle loss. It launched on a Falcon 9 rocket from Space Launch Concmplex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.
I can’t say that the entire operation is a success, but the launch could not have been any better. The weather conditions were tolerable. We’ll be able to confirm, for sure, its success when it lands on Sunday December 8.
This operation is an investment towards hyperspectral Earth imaging, Barley seeds in microgravity, confined combustion, and so much more. Jet Propulsion Laboratory of Nasa provides detailed content on its many key features.
What really sheds importance on today’s launch, are the new technologies that are possible to understand microgravity for healthy long-duration space travel.
These are our human endeavors towards helping the International Space Station (ISS), for breakthroughs on deep space travels.
