Watch SpaceX Launch The Falcon 9 Rocket For CRS-6 Mission, Take Two

October 26, 2015 – 02:21 pm

Screen Shot 2015-04-14 at 4.09.23 PMSpaceX is going to try to launch its CRS-6 International Space Station resupply mission again today at 4:10 PM ET, after having to scrub the launch yesterday due to adverse weather conditions. Weather today looks mostly favorable, with NASA reporting a “60 percent chance of acceptable conditions” for the target window at the Cape Canaveral launch site in Florida.

The launch today, if it goes off, will feature the Falcon 9 rocket transporting the SpaceX Dragon spacecraft to orbit, where it will rendezvous with the ISS to delivery a cargo of supplies (including an Arkyd 3 satellite). For SpaceX, it also represents a second chance to attempt recovery of the reusable first stage of the Falcon 9 rocket, using their autonomous drone barge landing platform.

Screen Shot 2015-04-14 at 4.21.32 PMWe’ll have updates as they come in, and will keep our fingers crossed that weather conditions hold out for the launch this afternoon.

UPDATE: The rocket is away! The next big step is attempting recovery of stage one of the Falcon 9 rocket.

UPDATE 2: Dragon has successfully separated from the second stage Falcon 9 rocket.

UPDATE 3: The webcast has ended, but we’re still awaiting word regarding the landing barge attempt of the reusable first-stage rocket.

UPDATE 4: SpaceX CEO Elon Musk shared the following, indicating that the attempted recovery of the reusable stage one rocket failed – the rocket landed on the autonomous barge, but it impacted too hard to survive to be used again. Still, the attempt will likely provide lots of useful data to inform the next try.

Ascent successful. Dragon enroute to Space Station. Rocket landed on droneship, but too hard for survival.

Here’s an image shared by SpaceX of the Falcon 9 first stage rocket approaching the barge (aka Just Read the Instructions) prior to the hard landing.

  • avatar What are some facts about the west cost of California?
    • A few facts: California didn't become a U.S. territory until 1847, as part of the treaty ending the Mexican-American War. Shortly thereafter, the discovery of gold at Sutter's Mill in 1848 inspired a wave of settlers to head to the west coast in search of fortune. In 1850 California became the 31st state, and is now the third largest state behind Alaska and Texas!
