Honda Space Station, Youtube, Walden discussed on SPACE NEWS POD



They all Bill. Hello and welcome back to the space. News pod. Your daily source for space. Science Intech tech news. I'm your host will Walden end. In this episode. I'm going to be talking about SpaceX is C R S seventeen resupply. Mission to the international space station. But before I do that. I wanna say thank you everybody who's been subscribing to the podcast. You're really do. Help out a ton. Also to those of you who have been watching our Apollo mission broadcasts on our YouTube channel, YouTube dot com slash space. News pod doing kind of a Apollo eleven marathon right now. So if you get a chance go over there check that out. Now, let's get into some SpaceX and space station news. This mission was a couple days late. It was scheduled to take place on Wednesday. And then it slipped to Friday to give NASA some time to resolve some electrical issues that are on the international space station in the issue was a main bus. Switching unit. The m b s you which is a component of the ISS United States orbital segment electrical power system, and they got that all fixed up. So next thing that they was launched. This SpaceX falcon nine rocket with the capsule on top of it to take supplies to the international space station in in that capsule. The pressurize section had three thousand three hundred forty four pounds of equipment and supplies in further on in the unpressurised capsule. There's two thousand one hundred and twenty eight pounds so altogether. There's five thousand four hundred seventy two pounds that were launched on top of this rocket incentives to the international space station. The pressurized section of cargo head one thousand six hundred one pounds of scientific equipment and experiments, and that's researched that C R S seventeen will deliver to the station includes tissue chips in space. It sounds like potato chips, which would be delicious for astronauts and space, but it's actually not it's an investigation that will use three dimensional cultures of human tissue to study, how cells respond to factors such as drugs or diseases in microgravity, you definitely don't want to eat that and another experiments on board, which is called the photo bio reactor, it's a study that uses biological processes as part of the life support system of future long duration space missions. And that experiment will, cultivate, microscopic algae Clara vulgarities aboard the space station's destiny laboratory, the LG consumed carbon dioxide and give off oxygen while also producing nutritional biomass that can be consumed by astronauts, so think about this. If we could make food in space from these algae's a week do long-term spaceflights with just the food. That's in there. It could continue. To produce food for as long as it's on the space station for or for as long as it's on the long-term space vessel. And these are the building blocks is the first phases of these kind of experiments, so we're gonna know in the future, you know, in the next couple years, or so how this actually turns out, and if these algae's will actually be ready for human consumption for long-term spaceflight. All right. I'm gonna take a quick break in when I get back. I'm gonna let you know about the Hermes facility which got delivered to the space station by SpaceX high everyone, I would let you know about inker dot FM. It's where I host podcast in. I find that. It's the easiest place to do that. And it gives you everything that you need in one place for free, which you can start podcasting from your phone or from your computer. You don't need special crazy equipment to start doing it. You can talk into your phone, you'll need editing equipment that costs thousands of dollars to start a podcast. You can do it from anywhere in when you're done recording episode anchored at FM will distribute it so it can be hard everywhere on Spotify, apple podcast, Google podcasts. Stitcher every place that podcasts can be heard, and you can make money with your podcast. It's pretty simple. There's no minimum listenership to start making money with anchor. So if you wanna make a little bit of money while having a cool podcast while download the crap or go to anchored up FM to get started. Okay. Welcome back. Now Hermes is cool. It's a ground controlled laboratory, which will allow scientists under to conduct research aboard the space station, so experiments can be installed in the Hermes facility via cassettes in the first experiment. Use this facility will be a materials and micro gravity study exploring how particles in Iraq in the regular of small asteroids think about science, man. That's crazy. That's cool stuff. Think about that. For this blow your mind, you are much more capable of handling things. Like this than I am. But studying asteroids Honda space station were kind of living in the future. This is pretty amazing. So they didn't just do science equipment CRS seventeen delivered seven hundred forty five pounds of supplies and provisions for the space station's crew about seven hundred eighty seven pounds of. Hardware for the US international segments of the station hundred sixty five pounds of computer equipment. That's a lot of laptops. Twenty two pounds of hardware to support VA's and twenty four pounds of hardware that is flown behalf of the Russian federal space agency, our roscosmos, and it also include components for the species new water storage system filters for a new waste management system. While you're harnesses and depressurization indicators that will support future commercial crew flights in the polar system that will facilitate transportation of scientific experiments at low temperatures, and then we have the trunk of dragon. It contains hardware that will be mounted on the outside of the space station, which is something called the Osceola three payload the orbiting carbon observatory three which will use spectrometers to measure, the density distribution of carbon dioxide in earth's atmosphere. There's also things from the space test program, the S T P H six which include. Experiments that will test instruments for a Janas Feerick in plasma research, demonstrating computing resources for in orbit image-processing validating the use of modulated xrays for communications testing systems for future. Satellites and this flight went off without a hitch falcon nine launched the capsule up to the international space station, the capsule docked everything is good to go. And SpaceX land of the rockets back on earth in the international space station got their supplies. So that's the end of this episode. And I wanna say thank you to everyone who's been subscribing to this podcast. I really really do. Appreciate it think that everyone unpatriotic patriot dot com slash space. News podcast. Also, thanks to everyone who's been subscribing to our YouTube channel, YouTube dot com slash space. News pod. You're all absolutely amazing. I want to say that. You're the reason why I continue to do this. I have a passion for this. But also, I wanna make sure that everyone else with a passion has, you know, some place to go that they can listen to school space science tech stuff. So thanks again everybody thanks for taking the time out of your day to spend a here with me on the space news pod. I'm your host will Walden hand. I will see you soon.
