Liftoff is targeted for 1:16 p.m. EST, or 18:16 UTC, from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida.

The nonmoldy food bars and their corresponding mice, which will support the study of aging-related effects in space, are among the components for 38 new investigations on the Dragon spacecraft, NASA officials said.

Falcon 9 B1050 fought til the end, coming to a shockingly soft landing despite spinning rapidly.

"Engines stabilised rocket spin just in time, enabling an intact landing in water!" It's part of the company's push for reusability to drive down launch costs. The video seems to show that one of the fins didn't initially extend all the way, causing the rocket to spin.

"Given this event, we will likely add a backup pump & lines".

When SpaceX launched Falcon Heavy, which is essentially powered by three Falcon 9 rockets strapped together, the center booster didn't land as planned on a drone-ship in the Atlantic, though the two other rockets returned to ground safely. Falcon 9 first launched on 4 June 2010, and since that time it underwent two substantial changes. (2,500 kilograms) of supplies to the space station's six-person crew.
