If you're simply rebooting HST, Dragon is not the ideal vehicle, because it has all this extra mass for people, but, if you have other plans for the servicing that benefit with people on orbit it makes more sense.
ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti is now officially commander of the ISS! 🥳
She is the fifth European and the first European female to fulfil the role of commander of the International Space Station.
10 months ago we watched the
launch in person and just now all 4 of us watched the successful impact live on our screen. Such remarkable precision! Congratulations to NASA and
IMPACT SUCCESS! Watch from
’s DRACO Camera, as the vending machine-sized spacecraft successfully collides with asteroid Dimorphos, which is the size of a football stadium and poses no threat to Earth.
Can you imagine that the final
day is over a week already? Garrett Reisman, Adam Burrows, Armen Kherlopian, Arbi Karapetian, Alfred McEwen, Charlie Duke, George Nield, Paul Franklin, Tony Donné, Chris Hadfield, Leon Stok, and many more. It was amazing! 🤩
Looks like an unplanned successful test of the
launch escape system. But since the failure seems to be in the booster which I believe is common with the crew version-this should be examined very carefully. I’m confident that my friends
will do it right.
During today’s flight, the capsule escape system successfully separated the capsule from the booster. The booster impacted the ground. There are no reported injuries; all personnel have been accounted for.
