SpaceX said that around five hours after leaving the International Space Station the spacecraft will engage in a deorbit burn that can last as long as ten minutes. SpaceX has landed a second contract in which its Falcon 9 launch vehicle and Dragon spacecraft were chosen to resupply the space station through 2024. "So, welcome on board". Fresh supplies to the International Space Station were sent on the Dragon spacecraft, which marks the final cargo mission for 2019.
CIMON-2 was also part of the precious cargo inside the Dragon capsule.
The "robot hotel" known as Robotic Tool Stowage (RiTS) was launched with two robots onboard known as Robotic External Leak Locators (RELL). Additionally, ISS National Lab-sponsored investigations exceeded the ISS National Lab's 50% allocation of crew time dedicated to conducting experiments onboard the space station, which is entering its 20th year of continuous human presence. SpaceX and NASA had considered launching the test before the end of the year, but dates like this have a way of overlooking the projections.
The spaceship reached carrying around 3 tons of supplies, which included genetically-engineered mice with twice the muscle mass of regular mice. The mice will live in four habitats on the station and will be compared with 40 other mice in similar habitats on Earth after returning in January.
Last month, the company successfully tested its launch abort engines in a so-called pad-abort test. Boeing plans to launch its first uncrewed Starliner mission to the International Space Station, called the Orbital Flight Test, no earlier than December 20. Anheuser-Busch and Budweiser beer are sending the fourth experiment to the space station to understand the seed germination in the harsh climatic conditions of space.
