SpaceX Mishap

Hey Space Placers!

Today's launch of the SpaceX resupply mission to the International Space Station (ISS) resulted in a mishap about two minutes into the flight resulting in catastrophic loss of the mission.

You can get the latest from NASA here.

This was an UNMANNED flight and the 6 astronauts aboard ISS are safe and in no danger. They have supplies of food and water to last until at least October.

This is the third failure of an ISS resupply mission since Orbital ATK last October and the Russian Progress mission in April. There are additional resupply missions in the coming months with the next being a Russian Progress mission slated for July 3.

Stay tuned for the latest as the investigations into these mission failures continue.
