SpaceX, Elon Musk launch Falcon 9 loaded with weird science for NASA to ISSA rocket carrying a Dragon capsule for NASA launched Monday to bring supplies, experiments and even a new printer to the space station.
Ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three. Two, one, zero, [UNKNOWN. [SOUND] [SOUND] What our companies does is we've built the new technology that we call auto-bioluminescence. Auto-bioluminescence. And this is basically a big steep forward in bioluminescent imaging where instead of intermittent snapshots of data acquisition, we can continuously monitor any living cell. The MVP locker will stay onboard the station permanently. And then only experiment modules will be inserted by the crew over time. What we're planning to do is to use the fly sort of as a surrogate, because you can get large samples sizes to test different kinds of pathogens and their changes as they're happening in space. We're launching seven new ways of Growing plants in space. ASIM is a payload that's developed by the European Space Agency to study severe thunderstorms. So ASIM will be the first time that we launch a especially designed instrument to look for these things in space. That is a view from the front of our second stage looing.
