Estados Unidos vuelve a la carrera espacial

Space X comienza su misión el 27 de mayo

Dos astronautas estadounidenses completaron un ensayo general antes de su innovador viaje a la Estación Espacial Internacional en una asociación entre la NASA y SpaceX.

[pullquote]Puntos clave:
Los astronautas serán los primeros en ser puestos en órbita por una empresa privada.
Solo hay un 40 por ciento de posibilidades de clima favorable para el lanzamiento
SpaceX dice que el lanzamiento será “todo un espectáculo”[/pullquote]

Los astronautas de la NASA Doug Hurley y Bob Behnken, que completaron la carrera en seco el fin de semana, serán parte del primer intento de una compañía privada de enviar astronautas a la órbita.

Solo los gobiernos ruso, estadounidense y chino lo han hecho en el pasado.

Behnken y Hurley

Después de subir a bordo de la cápsula SpaceX Dragon en la parte superior del cohete SpaceX Falcon 9 el miércoles 27 de mayo a las 16.33 hora de la Florida, la pareja también se convertirá en los primeros astronautas lanzados desde el Centro Espacial Kennedy de la NASA desde el último vuelo del transbordador en 2011.

Sin embargo, el lanzamiento dependerá del clima y solo hay un 40 por ciento de posibilidades de condiciones favorables para el día del lanzamiento, según las previsiones del 45 ° Escuadrón del Ala Espacial de la Fuerza Espacial de EE. UU.

Según el pronóstico, el centro espacial en Cabo Cañaveral en Florida podría ver lluvia y una espesa capa de nubes.

La misión está diseñada para ser una demostración de viajes espaciales comerciales y es una asociación entre la agencia espacial estadounidense y SpaceX, propiedad del multimillonario fundador de Tesla, Elon Musk.

El coronel Hurley y el coronel Behnken, vestidos con elegantes atuendos blancos, se trasladarán de un Tesla del mismo color a la cápsula del Dragón.

El ex astronauta Buzz Aldrin, que acompañó a Neil Armstrong en la misión Apollo 11 de 1969, dijo en línea que los preparativos para la misión trajeron buenos recuerdos.

    Is this really taking place or is it fake? It seems so random and sudden

    The fact that America has had to rely on Russia for the past 9 years in order to get anyone into orbit is yet another item on the list of shame brought to us by Republicans. The party of George Bush just wasn’t that interested in space travel, and was perfectly happy to let our greatest geopolitical enemy take the lead. It’s still happening today with Trump, who to this day will not say one negative word about his puppet master in Moscow.

      there are going to be tragedies, no way around that. But once every ~80 launches is ridiculous. 2/3 of the people who died in spaceflight died in the shuttle.

      Elon Musk says that space flight will finally pay for itself when we can shoot 100 people at a time into space. The inevitable failure of such a craft will put any shuttle tragedy to shame. But that’s not really the point, is it?

    I hope these astronauts have a safe flight. SpaceX is notorious for blowing their stuff up on the launchpad…and not landing very well either. Of course, Boeing’s Starliner is somehow doing worse. NASA, for all its warts and expense, has a better track record than either of these companies. If this rocket or any of the next few rockets blow up, it’ll set commercial space flights back by 20 years or more.

      NASA specifically want commercial companies to handle the day to day stuff while they focus on more lunar and innovative projects. However, the Starship is an added bonus from SpaceX!

      NASA contracted Space X to do this.

    Those spacesuits and helmets are right out of a low budget 70’s SiFi movie

      They are flight suits ,not made for spacewalks

      • posted on May 25, 2020

      They’ll work just as fine as any pressurized intravehicular activity suit. SpaceX intentionally went for the SciFi look. The astronauts will use the bulky EVA suits if they need to do a spacewalk while on the ISS.

    “Safety first!…and make the spacesuits really goofy looking.” – someone said that at Space-X apparently.

    The SpaceX suits look like something off of a 1950’s pulp sci-fi magazine cover. Love it!
