SpaceX is targeting June 1 blastoff for the firm's next cargo delivery Mission to the International SPACE Station for NASA following today's successful Test firing of Falcon 9 booster main engines on the Florida SPACE Coast under sunny skies. Liftoff of SpaceX Falcon 9 Rocket carrying unmanned Dragon cargo freighter from seaside Pad 39A at NASAs KENNEDY SPACE CENTER in Florida is slat for 5: 55 PM EDT Thursday, June 1. Static fire Test of Falcon 9 is complete, SpaceX confirmed via Twitter soon after completion of the Test at noon Today 12 PM EDT. Targeting June 1 Launch from Historic Pad 39A for Dragons next Resupply Mission to the Space_Station. Static fire Test also apparently set off brush fire near Pad, which required response from firefighters to douse the blaze with water bucket drops from helicopters. USFWS firefighters are responding to a new wildfire at Merritt Island NWR caused by static Rocket Test fire FLfire, tweet US Fish and Wildlife Service. The wildfire stretched to 4 acres on Merritt Island and was successfully contain, US Fish and Wildlife Service say. With Launch conveniently coinciding with dinnertime, it will offer prime time viewing thrills for spectators and SPACE enthusiasts coming from near and far. The weather outlook for Thursday is currently promising with mostly sunny conditions but can change at moments ' notice. And to top that off, SpaceX will attempt land landing of First Stage back at Cape at Landing Zone 1 some 9 minutes after liftoff. The Dragon Resupply ship dubbed Dragon CRS-11 counts as SpaceXs eleventh contract Commercial Resupply Services Mission to the International SPACE Station for NASA since 2012. It is carrying almost 6 000 pounds of Science Research, Crew supplies and Hardware to the Orbiting Laboratory in support of Expedition 52 and 53 Crew members. The unpressurized trunk of spacecraft also will transport solar panels, tools for Earth-observation and equipment to study neutron stars. Dragon CRS-11 will be the second SpaceX Resupply Mission to Launch this year. Prior SpaceX cargo ship Launch on Feb 19 2017 on the CRS-10 Mission to SPACE Station. It was also the first SpaceX Launch of Falcon 9 from NASAs Historic Pad 39A. Another significant milestone for this flight is that it features the first reuse of previously Launch Dragon. It previously Launch on CRS-4 Resupply Mission. Sunday's brief static fire Test involved successful hot fire ignition Test of two Stage Rocket and all nine First Stage Merlin 1D engines on Sunday afternoon while Rocket was firmly Hold down at Pad. A Hold down Engine Test is routinely conducted to confirm readiness of engines and Rocket for Flight. Nine Merlin 1D engines generate 1. 7 million pounds of thrust for approximately three seconds. The test simulates all conditions of flight except liftoff, and involves loading of densified liquid oxygen and RP-1 propellants into first and second stages starting about 70 minutes prior to ignition.

Primary payload

The International Space Station US National Laboratory is enabling a new era of Research in Space aimed at improving LIFE on Earth. SpaceX Commercial Resupply Services-16 Mission is slat for Launch no earlier than December 4 2018, carrying multiple ISS National Lab payloads. The SpaceX CRS-16 Mission includes a variety of payloads representing diverse science investigations, ranging from LIFE and physical sciences to Earth observation and remote sensing, as well as educational experiments intended to engage and excite the next generation of scientists and Engineers. Below are highlights of sponsored ISS National Lab investigations that are part of SpaceX CRS-16 Mission to the Space Station. Space Center Houston, official visitor Center to NASAs Johnson Space Center, runs a five-day engineering design program called Space Center University. Students from Immaculata Catholic Middle School in North Carolina were selected to Test MixStix Experiment focus on genome editing technology onboard ISS. The Experiment consists of MixStix divided into three sections that contain DNA, nuclease, and stop solution. Purified ASCUS nuclease will be mixed with plasmid DNA for one hour before stop solution is include. When MixStix is returned to Earth, students will evaluate how these products react with one another. Bacterial Production Of Recombinant Proteins in Microgravity Craft Academy PI: Jennifer Carter This Student Experiment explores behavior and fluorescence of bacteria containing p-Green plasmid. By imaging expression of transformed bacteria, effects of Microgravity on process of transformation and fluorescence can be examine. Recombinant bacteria expressing variant of Green fluorescent Protein are valuable models for transgenic and genomic studies. By understanding the influence that the space environment may or may not have on the process and expression of transformation, could provide important information for future studies regarding genetic modification and long-term Space travel. Further, information may be gained about mechanism by which bacteria are able to overcome environmental stressors such as exposure to the space environment. Barley Germination and Malting in Microgravity Objective 3 Budweiser PI: Gary Hanning This investigation implements microscale Malting procedure in the Spaceflight environment. Payload will examine steeping, germination, and kilning processes associated with Malting Barley. The resultant malt will be examined upon return to Earth control. Barley is an important grain used in a large variety of products, from bread to beer. Results from this research could help companies develop new malt barley varieties that are more tolerant to extreme stress environments. It could also provide valuable insight for general agricultural community. Biofilm Thickness / Viability and elevate Microbial Corrosion Risk Nalco Champion PI: Vic Keasler This investigation aims to examine Microbial biofilms on Earth and in Space to observe and quantify the rate of Microbial Corrosion as function of cell density and activity. Localize corrosion caused by microorganisms is responsible for up to half of all damage caused by corrosion, according to National Association Of Corrosion Engineers International, and translates to 485 billion– 1. 5 trillion in annual costs globally.

Secondary payloads

Following her launch on SpaceXs Falcon 9 rocket, company's CRS-19 Dragon spacecraft completed journey to the ISS. Resupply Flight Launch From Cape Canaverals SLC-40 on Thursday before being captured by Stations Robotic arm on Sunday morning. Launch begins the Month-Long CRS-19 mission which will see Dragon deliver New Research and supplies to the Space Station before returning to Earth with surplus hardware and results of scientific investigations conducted aboard the outpost. CRS-19 is the twenty-first flight of the first-generation version of Dragon and Mark's twentieth mission to the International Space Station-A number that includes both its successful second demonstration flight under the Commercial Orbital Transportation Services program and CRS-7 Flight which failed to reach orbit. Launch begins what is expected to be the penultimate flight for this incarnation of Dragon, with the cargo version of the upgraded Dragon 2 spacecraft expected to take over next year under the second Phase of the NASAs Commercial Resupply Services contract. Under CRS, both SpaceX and Northrop Grumman carry out regular uncrewed flights to the ISS, delivering a multitude of cargoes including provisions for Crew, Space Station hardware and scientific investigations. SpaceX was awarded initial contract for twelve CRS Missions in December 2008, with subsequent extensions increasing this to twenty flights. A new contract under the second Phase of the program was announced in 2016, with Dragon and Northrop Grummans Cygnus continuing while Sierra Nevada Corporations Dream Chaser was also added to the program. CRS vehicles form part of the International fleet of spacecraft supporting the Space Station, which also includes Russian Progress and Japan Kounotori. The Progress mission is currently due to lift off on Friday, arriving at the Station on Monday, two days after Dragon if both Missions stick to their schedules. Building on the success of CRS, NASA has contracted with SpaceX and Boeing to outsource crewed Missions to ISS under Its Commercial Crew program, With first astronauts expected to fly aboard these Missions next year. SpaceX will use Dragon v2, enhanced version of Dragon spacecraft which was first demonstrated With uncrewed DM-1 mission earlier this year. Boeing Starliner is due to fly its demonstration mission later this month. Before carrying out Its CRS contracts, SpaceX flew two demonstration Missions With Dragon under the NASAs Commercial Orbital Transportation Services program. The first of these was the short-duration free-flying test of Dragon in low Earth orbit, which Launch on 8 December 2010 and splashed down three hours and nineteen minutes later. In late May 2012, the second mission, C2 +, culminates in the Dragons ' first berthing and delivery of cargo to the International Space Station. Four months later, in early October, Dragon fly Its first operational CRS mission. The Dragon is equipped to carry both pressurized and unpressurized cargo-former within its recoverable capsule and the latter in the aft Trunk Section which also houses vehicles Solar arrays.
