SpaceX's unmanned Dragon cargo ship arrives at International Space Station

Supercomputer being sent into space to see if it can survive a mission to Mars

This time it will be carrying two South Jersey science experiments. It also contributes to space transport services. So far, SpaceX has successfully landed all of its rockets that have attempted ground landings there. It also marked the first debut of what is understood as incremental improvements in the vehicle's thrust, deemed "Block 4" by Musk and the SpaceX fan community. They have been known for their Indian-style habit of reusing things, rockets in their case.

The new announcement about the rocket has come from NASA and the space centre.

While watching the Falcon 9 SpaceX rocket take off, she added that the feeling she experienced "was just so inspiring".

NASA Television and the agency's website will provide live coverage of spacecraft rendezvous and capture beginning at 5:30 a.m., followed by installation coverage at 8:30 a.m.

For the year-long experiment, astronauts will install the computer inside a rack in the Destiny module of the space station.

Bitcoin surges through $4000 as Korean peninsular tensions rise
Starting the year at $997.69, by February the price hit $1,206.02, breaking its previous longstanding record dating back to 2013. But instead of a decline in Bitcoin's value, it has been on an upward swing to new heights and shows no signs of slowing down.

The cargo ship is packed with 6,400 pounds (2,900 kilograms) of supplies, including a sophisticated super-computer made by Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), called The Spaceborne Computer. "If the experiment works, it opens up a universe of possibility for high performance computing in space".

The experiment is being performed in preparation for a Mars mission and will last a year - the same amount of time it takes to travel to the planet. It was ruggedized to withstand the harsh environments of space but not from the hardware side - which is the usual approach - but from the software side instead. Sending and receiving messages from Mars to Earth and vice versa is delayed from over 24 minutes one-way which is why an innovative technology was required to complete the task. The reply is another 20 minutes. This computer is being sent to space to find out if it can function in space's rough conditions.

The 213-foot-tall (65-meter) rocket blasted off from pad 39A at the Florida spaceport at 12:31:37 pm, maneuvered to align with the space station's orbit, and shot past scattered clouds before disappearing into the blue sky. As of now, the weather is said to be in favour of the launch.

SpaceX began launching in 2013-to both, the first 100 to 1,200 miles of space, and, about 22,000 miles above the earth.
