India successfully launched Chandrayaan-2 orbiter mission and lunar surface spacecraft on Monday.
The Dragon Capsule is preparing to do the first operation, from dozen missions for Nasa. The time of launch is 8:35 p.m. on Oct. 7 from Florida Station. The spacecraft will join with International Space Station after three days. The flight, named CRS -1, will begin and do the same rendezvous with the station, as the previous craft. The Dragon capsule will go to space, on 9 rocket and 9 kerosene- and oxygen-powered engines. When the Dragon capsule is in orbit, after eleven minutes, a controllers will begin the testing of rendezvous’ sensors from the Earth. The SpaceX craft will spend about three weeks, then the craft will return to the Earth. The difference of this mission from the previous, is that the Dragon capsule will be filled by the cargo for an operational mission. In the capsule will be the freezer for the station’s samples, and the locker, which will be filled by variety materials, for those astronomers, who lives and works in the station. At this time the Dragon capsule was built with heat shields, which will help the capsule to survive the cargo through the atmosphere. But on its return, the Dragon capsule will bring more than a ton of scientific samples, which will be collected during the station observations, also the astronauts will bring the used hardware, for engineers firsthand look.
