With the mission of carrying supplies to the International Space Station (ISS), this afternoon, SpaceX successfully launched its rocket, Falcon 9, and, as usual, recorded everything on his YouTube channel, so that it is ready for you to enjoy.
The rocket, which blasted off at 15:30 hrs. (Central time Mexico), is the second of the type that launches the company created by Elon Musk, who among other missions, has as a fixed goal to reach Mars with manned spacecraft.
The rocket SpaceX was assembled with the capsule Dragon, which will remain assembled at the ISS for about a month, then come back to the Earth with various items that require repair on our planet, such as the Robonaut 2, 2011.
“This is the second mission of resupply for NASA in that we are not only using a launcher that has already flown by, but also a Dragon that has already been on the International Space Station,” said Jessica Jensen, in charge of the mission Dragon, on Sunday. The rocket had flown for the last time in August of last year and the capsule Dragon flew to the ISS in April 2016.
The video is very long for the launch of SpaceX, but what good is going on around the 19th minute with the sequence of take-off already activated.
