The US Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) said that a team of four astronauts arrived at the International Space Station on Saturday aboard the Endeavor "Crowdregon" capsule, which was launched from the front of a SpaceX rocket, becoming the first team ever to reach orbit by an engine. My rocket was recycled and used on a previous spaceflight.
The Endeavor capsule, which is also carrying out its second flight, was launched into space Friday onboard a SpaceX "Falcon 9" rocket from NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida. SpaceX is the commercial rocket company owned by billionaire Elon Musk.
NASA said in its mission report that the capsule did not dock with the International Space Station complex at an altitude of 425 km above the Indian Ocean at 5:08 am EST (0908 GMT).
Onboard the capsule was two NASA personnel, mission commander Shane Kimbro, 53, and astronaut Megan MacArthur, 49, along with Japanese astronaut Akihiko Hoshid, 52, and his colleague Thomas Pesquet, 43, a French engineer from the Space Agency. European.
This mission is the second "operational" team that NASA has sent aboard the "Crowdregon" capsule since the resumption of manned spaceflight from US soil last year, after a nine-year hiatus at the end of the US space shuttle program in 2011.
It is also the third astronaut mission to be launched into orbit in 11 months as part of NASA's public-private partnership with SpaceX, which Musk founded in 2002. Musk is also CEO of Tesla.
The Falcon 9 missile was launched for the mission with the same first-stage engine that took a team into orbit five months ago, the first time that an engine previously used for the same mission has been reused.
Reusable motorized vehicles, which are designed to fly by themselves to land and land safely rather than falling into the sea after launch, are at the core of the reusable rocket strategy that helped make SpaceX a pioneer in making spaceflight less expensive.
