WATCH NOW: SpaceX to Launch Falcon Heavy Rocket #Nasa @Kennedy Space Center, 5:35pm

A SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket will launch the Arabsat 6A communications satellite from Kennedy Space Center's historic Launch Pad 39A.

Liftoff window begins at 05:35 p.m. EST (22:35 GMT).

We love ❤ Space
Do you?

SPACE & UNIVERSE Network

Three Falcon 9 boosters strapped together, the behemoth will lift off from historic Pad 39A here at NASA's Kennedy Space Center.

The upcoming mission, dubbed Arabsat 6A, will launch a large communications satellite for Saudi Arabian corporation Arabsat. Built by Lockheed Martin, the satellite is an advanced commercial communications satellite, designed to provide internet and communications services to residents of the Middle East, Africa and parts of Europe.

If all goes according to plan, the two side boosters will touch down in unison on their designated landing pad at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, while the central booster will land at sea, on one of the company’s two drone ships.

Falcon Heavy is the most powerful rocket flying today, but it has only one spaceflight under its belt so far. The reusable rocket first launched on Feb. 6, 2018, ferrying Elon Musk's cherry-red Tesla Roadster.

Fetching a price between $90 million and $150 million per launch, Falcon Heavy has already been certified by the U.S. Air Force to fly national security payloads.

Megastructures - INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION (ISS) - Full Documentary HD

The International Space Station is an orbiting laboratory and construction site that synthesizes the scientific expertise of 16 nations to maintain a permanent human outpost in space. While floating some 240 miles (390 kilometers) above Earth's surface, the space station has hosted a rotating international crew since November 2000. Astronauts and supplies are ferried by the U.S. space shuttles and the Russian Soyuz and Progress spacecraft. Astronauts who reach the facility aboard one of these missions typically live and work in orbit for about six months.

Simply by spending time in orbit, astronauts reveal much more about how humans can live and work in space. Crews have learned the difficulties of diet, in a world in which their sense of taste is decreased, and of getting a good night's sleep while secured to a non-floating object.

But the crew is also occupied with a full suite of scientific experiments, the ongoing improvement and construction of the station, and a rigorous regime of physical training. Astronauts must exercise for two hours each day to counteract the detrimental effects of low gravity on the body's skeleton and circulatory system.

Ongoing Construction

The station has been under construction since November of 1998. In that year the first piece of its structure, the Zarya Control Module, was launched into orbit with a Russian Proton rocket. In 2008, the two-billion-dollar science lab Columbus was added to the station, increasing the structure to eight rooms.

The floating facility's design features a series of cylinder modules attached to a larger truss of a dozen segments. The Zarya Module is mainly used for storage and external fuel tanks, while the Zvezda Service Module houses the crew's living quarters and the station's many life-supporting systems. The space station is powered by solar panels and cooled by loops that radiate heat away from the modules. The station's Destiny laboratory functions as a unique floating facility for tests of materials, technologies, and much more. The Columbus lab was designed to house experiments in life sciences, fluid physics, and other fields.

Docking ports allow the station to be visited by a growing variety of spacecraft, and the Quest Airlock enables access for the frequent spacewalks essential to the facility's continuing construction.

Canadarm2 is another important feature of the space station. This Canadian-built apparatus is a large, remote-controlled space arm that functions as a crane and can be utilized for a wide variety of tasks.

The International Space Station may be completed by the end of this decade. When construction is finished, six crew members will be able to live and work in a space larger than a typical five-bedroom house.

Departing Space Station Commander Provides Tour of Orbital Laboratory

In her final days as Commander of the International Space Station, Sunita Williams of NASA recorded an extensive tour of the orbital laboratory and downlinked the video on Nov. 18, just hours before she, cosmonaut Yuri Malenchenko and Flight Engineer Aki Hoshide of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency departed in their Soyuz TMA-05M spacecraft for a landing on the steppe of Kazakhstan. The tour includes scenes of each of the station's modules and research facilities with a running narrative by Williams of the work that has taken place and which is ongoing aboard the orbital outpost.

Why Is The ISS So Important?

Russia has decided to continue to fund the ISS until the year 2024, but is it worth it? What do we gain by keeping the space station open?

History and Timeline of the ISS

“The International Space Station took 10 years and over 30 missions to assemble. It is the result of unprecedented scientific and engineering collaboration among five space agencies representing 15 countries.”

How long could the International Space Station last without astronauts?

“NASA may have to temporarily abandon the International Space Station in November, as a recent Russian rocket crash has called into question the safety of the vehicle that ferries astronauts to and from the station. If astronauts have to board up and leave the orbiting science laboratory, how long could it last without human maintenance?”

Running in Space!

NASA astronaut Karen Nyberg, an Expedition 37 flight engineer aboard the International Space Station, demonstrates how astronauts run on the COLBERT treadmill in a weightless environment. Station crew members exercise for at least two hours every day to keep fit and to prevent the loss of muscle mass and bone density that occurs during long-duration spaceflight.

Awesome video game style Radar animations by:


See the official NASA Space Station Tour:


A little behind the scenes for this video, early on animating that little mini map Eisen my animator discovered even small errors were very noticeable and distracted from the tour if the map wasn't reflecting reality within a few degrees. Animating anything for 10 minutes is a big deal so instead of trial and error, he put what he knew about the rules of perspective and made this grid system to line things up, all to make the dots on that map in the corner work like you'd expect them to.

Instead of saving for my kids' college, I make videos using the money I would have saved.
The thought is it will help educate the world as a whole, and one day generate enough revenue to pay for their education. Until then if you appreciate what you've learned in this video and the effort that went in to it, please SHARE THE VIDEO!

Docking to the International Space Station

Once you're at the International Space Station it's nice to go inside and enjoy the science! We can do this by docking or berthing, that's how we physically attach our spacecraft to the space station so we can go inside.

We'll look at Reaction Control Systems, Station Keeping, The Russian Docking System, The International Docking Standard, and last but not least, the Common Berthing Mechanism.

The ISS is often cited as one of the most impressive feats of modern science and technology. Circling the Earth all day, everyday, it has become a symbol for human endeavour and international co-operation. But only a select few astronauts have ever experienced it for themselves. So, what really happens up there?

How will the internet work in Space? - The Interplanetary Internet



Whilst the internet has become integral to most people's lives it was only in 2010 that the International Space Station could use apps like Twitter because the connection speed was so slow. In fact, communication with spacecraft out past mars becomes very slow and problematic.
However, in the future, high-speed internet connections will be available out into the solar system that will not only give coverage of what's available here out there but also dramatically speed up the currently very slow communications to space missions both manned and unmanned. In this video, we look at how this will happen.
