SpaceX Launches 20th Rocket but fails to make the Landing Spot

After mice food delay, SpaceX set for space station resupply launch Wednesday Watch live: After delay, SpaceX to launch space station resupply mission

So a shipment of smoked turkey breast, cranberry sauce, candied yams and, of course, fruitcake was rocketed to the International Space Station Wednesday with delivery expected by Saturday.

Dragon will be filled with more than 5,600 pounds of supplies and payloads, including critical materials to directly support more than 250 science and research investigations that will occur onboard the orbiting laboratory.

NASA and SpaceX have targeted today, Wednesday December 5, to launch their 16th SpaceX mission to the ISS.

Effective July 2018, access to full reports will only be available with a subscription.

And the Dragon brings a special treat for one class of spacecraft: It's carrying a satellite deployment system called SlingShot that can fit inside the Cygnus spacecraft's berth to deploy up to 18 cubesats.

LZ 1 was built on the former site of Space Launch Complex 13, a Cold War-Era U.S. Air Force rocket and missile testing range last used in 1978. The ship made it into space just fine, but the reusable rocket stage that was supposed to have a soft landing on dry land ended up splashing down in the ocean instead.

On Monday, it launched a Falcon 9 rocket from California's Vandenberg Air Force Base, which was headed to space-and the record books.

The Falcon 9's cargo featured 15 microsats and 49 cubesats from commercial and government entities, ranging from universities, to startups, to even a middle school. Today, the uncrewed Dragon cargo capsule is scheduled to blast off from Florida at 1:16 p.m., with the rocket returning for a landing just south of its launch pad. Those projects will test dental glue and a plant-watering process for space.

See that small space station?

Astronaut Anne McClain, also from NASA, will monitor telemetry during the spacecraft's approach.

The Dragon spacecraft itself should leave the station and head back to Earth in January, according to Kirt Costello, ISS program chief scientist at Johnson Space Center. It's part of the company's push for reusability to drive down launch costs.

In any case, the habitation module is discarded before atmospheric entry and the issue is not considered any sort of safety threat when Gerst, Prokopyev and Auñón-Chancellor return to Earth on December 20.
