Thursday 6 December 2018, 7:13 PM – In a very impressive decision to launch again, SpaceX's Falcon 9 phone phones had a mid-air pass on Wednesday, it still evolved, reasonably safe, and sound, in the waters near Cape Canaveral.
CRC-16 Dragon Wednesday, which was launched to the internationally similar Speech Station, was similar to the fact that it would be just another successful series for the successful launch of SpaceX private launch company. While her & # 39; first, and their primary school, part of the mission – the safe delivery of the Dragon spacecraft to orbit, It was done with the space station – without splitting, the same thing would not be taken for the attempt to build the Falcon 9 rockets.
How fans watch SpaceX live from the lock and their # 39; coming ashore, the Falcon 9 expanded through their normal routines while & # 39; as he was falling back to the ground, presents an impressive view to Cape Canaveral from top tall, through the rocket camera of the rocket South-
Less than a minute before the enhancement was set in Symbol 1, however, the scene from the rocket began to come back and forth.
Although the food coming from Falcon 9 was cut out at that time, it was clear that something was wrong. However, a video clip from the ground, however, which shows that it was a very ordinary landing, just for the rocket; falling down on the water, rather than land.
Shortly after landing, Elon Musk sent an email to Twitter, explaining the cause of the problem: "A solar timber pump was installed, so Falcon went out to sea," he said. "It seems that it is not damaged and it is a data distribution. A transcription vessel was distributed."
Shortly after that, Musk introduced that the hydraulic pumps are not among the remoter systems of remote occupation. With this event, however, he said they will probably have to pump pumps and lines back to the future launch of rockets.
According to Musk, it was the engines that saved the rocket, and # 39; reinforce spinning it straight before they disagreed, and let them go ashore completely in the water.
While this effort was to be & # 39; leaving the Falcon 9 at the end, the water was Coming out on the rocket part. Based on the launch of community talk on Twitter, protecting safety, Falcon 9 a & 39; coming in for the Kintyre 1 invasion focusing on a point off the coast, first. Then, if everything is done according to the plan, the rocket will be u0026; move over, just before it fell down, to spread across the land.
It is not clear, now, whether this rocket can be taken back. Although it was completely intake, parts could be damaged – from both pronounced and from seawater communications – which will remove this rocket; turntable turntable.
The dragoncraft that this increase has been thrown on the other hand, is due to come to International Speech Station Saturday, December 8, at 6 a.m. EST. Then Alexander Gerst of the ESA and Serena Auñón-Chancellor NASA using Canadarm2 to Dragon Grapple, connect to the spacecraft with the station. Anyone up early Saturday morning can see all the way on NASA TV. The operation and stream begins at 4:30 a.m. EST, and Dragon's capsule installation is broadcast to ISS; runs from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. EST.
