From a NASA rocket platform, a rocket is expected to take off from the International Space Station this Tuesday.It is filled with food to supply the astronauts’ needs.
Curling up upon Atlas V rocket, the castrated Cygnus cargo ship hovered to soar up concurrent to a 30-minute fire window which started at 11:11 am (1511GMT) from Cape Canaveral, Florida. Behind the cargo ship’s operation was the Orbital ATK as a component of its $1.9 billion deal with NASA being the orbiting post’s carrier of equipment and provisions. To note, this is Orbital ATK’s seventh mission to space.
Crew supplies, hardware, experiments on growing food and cancer supplies are loaded to the spaceship which weighed 7,626 pounds or 3,359 kilograms. On April 22, it is anticipated to reach at the station subsequent to the appointed landing on Thursday with Fyodor Yurchikhin, a Russian Soyuz spaceship carrying cosmonaut and Jack Fischer, an American astronaut cited PHYS ORG.
The astronauts then will unload the Cygnus. However, upon its re-entry into its earth’s atmosphere, the Cygnus has to be loaded with trash that will burn up along with the spaceship. Cygnus has to consume time to run an electronic experiment to check on how fire behaves in microgravity, before its mission comes to a red-hot ending.
The experiment popularly noted as Saffire-III is the third in a series intended to ignite a huge-scale of fire in microgravity. A statement from NASA pointed out that while in space after it has traveled a secure range from the station, a data will be collected when the fire is lit before coming back to the earth’s atmosphere.
The experiment is expected to last for two hours and thirty minutes, wherein 20 minutes is allotted to the burning of the fabric which measures 0.4 meters in width and one meter in height, according to Tribune.
The objective of the experiment is to fully comprehend the behavior of fire in space and to protect missions to space in the future. NASA said that the launch will be broadcast via 360-degree live stream. Through that state -of the- art facility, the public can virtually view the base of the rocket subsequently on the launch itself.
