SpaceX Tries Historic Launch Again Early Tuesday

SpaceX Falcon 9 Rocket on Launch Pad (Roberto Gonzalez/Getty)If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.

That's what Space Exploration Technologies, or SpaceX, will do early Tuesday morning, try again to launch their Falcon 9 space capsule to the International Space Station.
Being KING FM's Special Space Correspondant, I was watching NASA TV early Saturday morning, May 19, when the launch was aborted due to a faulty check valve.
Liftoff for the second launch attempt is set for 1:44 MDT on Tuesday morning, May 22. If successful, this would be the first time a private company has been used to deliver supplies to the space station.

NASA Moon Probes To Play Chase Over Lunar Surface

NASA is sending a set of robotic twins to the moon to measure lunar gravity while chasing one another around in circles.

Thursday and Friday's scheduled launches were delayed by high winds at Cape Canaveral, so NASA will try again on Saturday morning. Their launch window extends into mid-October.

The near-identical twins called GRAIL-A and GRAIL-B, (short for Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory), will create the most precise lunar gravity map ever, helping scientists figure out what's beneath the lunar surface and pinpoint the best landing sites for future explorers.

Where were you on the evening of July 20, 1969?

Last night I was eating a roast beef sandwich and to me, Arby's and Apollo 11 always go together. The Summer of 1969 we were taking a family vacation to Mesa Verde in southwestern Colorado. We were driving back home through Denver and stopped for dinner. Inside the restaurant they had a small TV everyone was watching, showing coverage of the historic moon landing.
