The BioSentinel mission was selected as one of the secondary payloads, and the sole biological experiment. The BioSentinel launch is scheduled for 2020.
Third time’s a charm, Elon Musk! Hopefully, the launch of SpaceX and Starlink’s 60 Internet satellites with the Falcon 9 rocket won’t be postponed a fourth time.
Elon Musk confirmed that SpaceX is building a fleet of Starship rockets and the second prototype of Starhopper is nearing completion.
SpaceX’s goal is to have almost 12 000 satellites operating in low-Earth orbit by 2024. Liftoff of the Falcon 9 rocket is scheduled for 04:30 on May 24.
Get ready for May’s full moon, also known as a Blue Moon or Flower Moon.
