  • SpaceX's CRS-16 mission has been delayed on account of moldy mice food

The launch was delayed for a day because of a problem with food for the mice.

The Dragon spacecraft will travel for about two days before astronauts used the station's robotic arm to berth it, unloading about 2,500 kilograms of tools, supplies and equipment.

However, the launch was marred by a system failure on the rocket which caused it to land in the sea, instead of on land at Landing Zone 1 (LZ-1) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida, as planned. The landing marked the first time SpaceX had flown a first stage three times. In the background, viewers could still hear the team on-console making callouts as the rocket's landing burn started, culminating in a call for the landing team to "move to contingency procedure [s]", the only SpaceX affirmation that something went wrong.

The Dragon capsule should reach the orbiting lab Saturday.

Based in Seattle, Washington, Spaceflight helps companies like SpaceX identify, book, and manage rideshare launches like the one on December 3.

To cap off this very big week, Elon Musk's company today is planning to launch a Falcon 9 rocket loaded with thousands of pounds of cargo bound for the International Space Station (ISS). The booster, covered in black soot from its two prior flights, landed again on an ocean barge in the Pacific Ocean after launch, queuing up the rocket to fly for a fourth time.

The rocket set another record: will sun-synchronous polar orbit at an altitude of about 575 km above the Earth 64 satellites at once from 34 different organizations from 17 countries.

The production of one fairing SpaceX costs of $6 million, which is ten percent of the sales price of the launch of Falcon 9 with landing of the first stage.

It is carrying experiments in forest observation, protein crystal growth and in-space fuel transfer demonstration and supplies that will support the crew, station maintenance and dozens of the more than 250 investigations aboard the space station, NASA said in a statement. Those projects will test dental glue and a plant-watering process for space. But after the second stage separated and continued toward space, the returning first stage twisted and danced in the sky as it plunged towards its landing pad.

Astronauts who are lucky enough to score a gig aboard the International Space Station make a lot of sacrifices in the name of science.
