Here’s how to watch SpaceX’s Dragon take off for the space station

An unmanned SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket with a Dragon capsule sits on launch pad 40 after a scrubbed launch attempt

After a 24-hour delay due to bad mice food, SpaceX is targeting Wednesday afternoon to launch supplies to the International Space Station from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. Cameras showed the booster rotating out of control. The company's "Block 5" series of Falcon 9 rockets are created to be used as many as 10 times.

The SpaceX Dragon capsule will be launched aboard a Falcon 9 rocket, with liftoff scheduled for 10:16 a.m. California time.

SpaceX founder Elon Musk has made reusability a major goal. However, the engines regained control and retrieved the booster well before time, thus allowing it to make a landing in water instead of the Landing Zone 1. Hydraulic pump meant for landing fins stopped functioning.

SpaceX's 12 previous ground landings - dating back to 2015 - all were successful.

After it released its payload into Earth's orbit, the SpaceX booster was recovered safely in the Pacific Ocean, according to a SpaceX spokesperson.

US fails to win United Nations condemnation of Hamas militants in Gaza
The US-drafted resolution won 87 votes in the General Assembly, falling short of the two-thirds majority required for adoption. A Hamas spokesman said in a statement late Thursday that the result of the vote was a "slap" to the USA administration.

SpaceX's success in landing Falcon 9 first stages and reusing them has become so routine that today's failure is newsworthy even though no other commercial space launch company does this at all. He told the media that public safety was protected well here.

It is carrying experiments in forest observation, protein crystal growth and in-space fuel transfer demonstration and supplies that will support the crew, station maintenance and dozens of the more than 250 investigations aboard the space station, NASA said in a statement.

Besides all the fixings for Christmas dinner, the delivery includes 40 mice and 36,000 worms for aging and muscle studies.

The scientists expect that there will be a huge increase in the population of worms which the space station will be able to accommodate. It turns out their muscles are similar to ours in structure and function, making them flawless lab substitutes, said lead scientist Timothy Etheridge of the University of Exeter in England.

The launch was delayed one day after mold was discovered on food bars meant for rodents included in one of the experiments aboard the flight.
