SpaceX launched their Falcon 9 rocket for deploying food and scientific tools to their astronauts.
In these days, SpaceX started doing serious things. Since 1958, NASA was the only leader for space missions. From 2002, Elon Musk changed this and became even more popular (it depends on perspective, for some NASA is still number 1). If we check the expenses for these companies, we may still see that NASA still number one with more than %50 market share. But as you know, it’s not all about the expenses, it’s about good advertisements and virals. There are still lots of space companies from lots of countries, the reason why NASA and SpaceX are still the most popular companies is all about advertisements.
Falcon 9 rocket is still be able to fire itself again and reusable. They were tried to fire it and re-launched it to their company’s facility. Falcon 9 is on way right now and after the mission, it will come back to earth and that will become its 16th success.
The capsule which named Dragon and carried by Falcon 9 carries biologic, genetic, botanic and some other components and these will help scientist to make new experiments on space.
Actually, that launch was timed earlier but the checks were failed (foods were not fresh and components had some problems) and this launch delayed from NASA. After the rocket launch’s success, it will be deployed by two robotic arms which controlled by two astronauts. We will get Falcon 9 in 2019 back for next missions. We wish that this mission will succeed for our future.
