Космический «ас»

На ВДНХ в Центре «Космонавтика и авиация» прошла встреча школьников с лётчиком-космонавтом СССР, дважды Героем Советского Союза, генерал-майором авиации Владимиром Александровичем Джанибековым. Ведущий урока «Профессия космонавт» – лётчик-космонавт, Герой России Фёдор Юрчихин.

За плечами лётчика-космонавта Владимира Джанибекова – 5 полётов на орбитальные станции «Салют-6» и «Салют-7». Об истории спасения космонавтами Джанибековым и Савиных орбитальной станции написаны книги, сняты документальные и художественные картины. Например, документальный фильм студии Роскосмоса «Битва за «Салют». Космический детектив».

Kickstarting Space Industry

Visit our sponsor, Brilliant: https://brilliant.org/IsaacArthur/
So often expanding into space can seem like a Catch-22, where every proposed idea for development can only be practical if space is already developed. Today we’ll take a look at some potential options for pushing forward our orbital infrastructure such as asteroid mining or power satellites, and take a look at what other technologies and industries might start the avalanche to our future in space and on other planets.

Dragon Resupply Mission (CRS-16)

SpaceX is targeting Wednesday, December 5 for the launch of its sixteenth Commercial Resupply Services mission (CRS-16) to the International Space Station. Liftoff is targeted for 1:16 p.m. EST, or 18:16 UTC, from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida.

Dragon will be filled with more than 5,600 pounds of supplies and payloads, including critical materials to directly support more than 250 science and research investigations that will occur onboard the orbiting laboratory.

The Dragon spacecraft that will support the CRS-16 mission previously supported the CRS-10 mission in February 2017. Following stage separation, SpaceX will attempt to recover Falcon 9’s first stage on Landing Zone 1 (LZ-1) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida.

*Note: Youtube’s event start time reflects the targeted liftoff time for this mission. SpaceX’s live launch webcast will begin about 20 minutes before liftoff.
