    [​IMG]NASA Video

    Published on Feb 15, 2018
    Following its two-day journey to the International Space Station, the Progress 69 cargo craft automatically docked to the aft port of the Zvezda service module at 5:38 a.m. EST while traveling about 250 miles over the east of the Philippines. The Russian resupply spacecraft was carrying more than three tons of food, fuel and supplies for the space station’s Expedition 54 crew. It launched two days earlier at 3:13 a.m. EST (2:13 p.m. local time) on Tuesday, Feb. 13, from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.

    SpaceX: PAZ Mission
    Launch T-1:00 @ 16:00


    Streamed live on Feb 22, 2018
    SpaceX is targeting a Falcon 9 launch of the PAZ satellite to low-Earth orbit on Thursday, February 22 from Space Launch Complex 4 East (SLC-4E) at Vandenberg Air Force Base, California. The instantaneous launch opportunity is at 6:17 a.m. PST, or 14:17 UTC. The satellite will be deployed approximately eleven minutes after launch.

    Falcon 9’s first stage for the PAZ mission previously supported the FORMOSAT-5 mission from SLC-4E in August 2017. SpaceX will not attempt to recover Falcon 9’s first stage after launch.

    Watch live as SpaceX performs its groundbreaking internet satellite launch after scrubbing yesterday’s attempt

    "SpaceX is still riding high on a wave of public hype from its Falcon Heavy launch, but even as Starman sails through space the company is wasting no time in proceeding with its long list of missions. The company is prepared to launch the first of over 10,000 internet satellites today, after scrubbing its first launch attempt on February 21st due to high altitude wind shear. That was a bit of a disappointment, but SpaceX is giving it another go today, and the launch window opens at 9:17am EST this morning.

    The mission will deploy a pair of SpaceX’s high-tech internet satellites into orbit. It’s the first step in an incredibly ambitious plan by the company to blanket the Earth in high-speed wireless connectivity. SpaceX calls the initiative “Starlink,” and it will require nearly 12,000 satellites to be successfully launch before all is said and done.

    Musk tweeted ahead of the first launch attempt that the idea behind Starlink is to “serve [the] least served,” and its overarching goal is to provide stable internet connections to areas where broadband hasn’t penetrated or for those who simply can’t afford it. Ultimately, a SpaceX-run internet service could help raise even more money for its future space endeavors, including missions to Mars and possibly beyond.

    Today’s launch is taking place from the Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. After the Falcon 9 rocket takes off, roughly 11 minutes will pass before the satellites are deployed. Breaking from its usual routine, SpaceX will not be recovering the Falcon 9 being used in this particular launch."
