SpaceX was to launch four astronauts to the International Space Station on Sunday night, although the chances of good weather were only 50-50 and company leader Alan Musk was separated by Covid-19.
Vice President Mike Pence was expected to wait a long time for a tour of the privately owned and operated capsules at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center. This is the second time in nearly a decade that astronauts have entered the Bit Rabbit from the United States.
“Game Day!” The crew commander, NASA astronaut Mike Hopkins, tweeted.
Muscat revealed on Twitter that despite the mixed test results, it was “most likely” a moderate case of coronavirus. The NASA policy is a positive test for anyone who wants to isolate and isolate the virus.
Kasturi was happy. “Today begins space travel!” He tweeted Sunday morning, also saying he had symptoms last week but now feels “very normal”.
Representatives from SpaceX did not respond to a request for comment on Musk’s whereabouts.
The launch of three American and one Japanese astronaut was successfully confirmed by two NASA pilots just three months after the successful first flight of a SpaceX Dragon Crew capsule.
The crew, led by Hopkins, an Air Force colonel, includes physicist Shannon Walker and Navy Commander and astronaut Victor Glover, who will be the first black astronauts to have a great time on the space station – a full five to six months. Japanese astronaut Sochi Noguchi will become the third person to travel in three different types of astronauts.
He named his capsule resilience, recognizing all the challenges of 2020, especially the global epidemic.
The 50-50 forecast focuses only on local weather, with a lift off at 7.27pm, not wind or sea conditions across the US East Coast or the North Atlantic to Ireland. If something goes wrong during the launch, the air and waves must be within limits and the capsule needs to be splashed emergency.
The rough seas prompted SpaceX to launch its booster-landing platform by day to reach its rightful position in the Atlantic. The company plans to reuse the first-stage booster for its next driver-turned-spring operation.
After the retirement of its space shuttles in 2011, NASA moved private spacecraft to the space station to launch cargo and crews. Space agency will save millions No more buying seats on Russia’s Soyuz capsule.
Another NASA pilot transport provider, Boeing, has just launched astronauts. The company has been working on software issues since its Starliner capsule merged space debit in December last year.
