SpaceX To Attempt A Second Launch On Tuesday, May 22

SpaceX and Elon Musk will not be held from the history books. Last night the company announced that engineers were currently replacing a faulty valve on engine #5, and if successful pending a data review today, the company would attempt a second launch on Tuesday, May 22nd. This comes as SpaceX’s maiden voyage to the International Space Station was cut a half second short by an automated safety function built into the rocket.

SpaceX is attempting to become the first privately owned entity to reach and dock a capsule with the ISS, therefore increasing its chance to win what will likely be a lucrative contract to ferry cargo and humans between Earth and Space. So far these duties have been carried out by the U.S., Russia and Japan. However, as governments are cutting space budget programs they are looking to hand over these relatively nominal duties to the private sector and redirect funds to long-range space exploration and science programs.

  • avatar How will YouTube display their sponsored channels when they launch next Winter/Spring (2012)?
    • With no official insight into how these channels will be promoted, my best guess is that there are 2 main ways YT could promote via the homepage:
      1) A tab that looks similar to the Movies tab today - that is the most likely place a permanent promotion would be.
      2) Alternatively, some of the individual channels could be promoted along the right side of the page below the homepage ad in the upper right (Featured, Spotlight, or New). This would more likely be a rotating promotion, where channel promotions could be targeted to user segments, or the more popular channels would receive extra p…
