SpaceX set to send cargo to space station

The company expects to start launching station crews next year. For the first time it was used may 11 in mission Bangabandhu, and then August 7 - the mission of Merah Putih.

What exactly went wrong is entirely unclear but roughly 30 seconds before a planned landing at LZ-1, Falcon 9 B1050 - shown live on SpaceX's webcast - began to spin at an increasingly rapid pace, visibly losing some of its aerodynamic control authority before SpaceX cut the live feed. At the moment, SpaceX is really inspired with his success against models of Falcon 9, and will probably continue his experiments with the rocket - however, it remains only to wait for that.

The Falcon 9 rocket launched from Vandenberg air force base in the U.S. 3 Dec 20:32.

As has become standard practice for the California rocket builder, the Falcon 9's first stage was programmed to fly itself back to a landing at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station about eight minutes after launch in a bid to chalk up the company's 33rd successful booster recovery and its 12th at the Florida spaceport.

Although, the Falcon 9 landed in the ocean, it was still close enough to Cape Canaveral Air Force Station for local residents to hear the double-sonic boom in nearby Cocoa Beach, Florida. The rocket landing was not required for SpaceX's main mission: delivering 5,600 lbs.

The hydraulic pump for the landing fins apparently stalled, but the engines stabilised the approximately 50m-tall booster just in time, allowing for "an intact landing in water!"

After it released its payload into Earth's orbit, the SpaceX booster was recovered safely in the Pacific Ocean, according to a SpaceX spokesperson.

"Appears to be undamaged & is transmitting data". Overall, Wednesday's flight was the ninth space station resupply mission launched this year.

One will carry the Chang'e 4 mission - an attempt to make the first-ever successful landing on the far side of the Moon.

SpaceX has blasted off its unmanned Dragon cargo ship, loaded with supplies, science experiments and food for the astronauts living at the International Space Station - but failed to land the rocket. Currently, the Dragon spacecraft is on schedule to arrive at the ISS by Saturday, Dec. 8th.
