Today’s launch of Dragon to ISS has been scrubbed due to “a helium leak in Falcon 9’s first stage.”


Readers!
 
For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. They practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.
 
Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.

 

Please consider donating by giving either a one-time contribution or a regular subscription, as outlined in the tip jar below.

You can also support me by buying one of my books, as noted in the boxes interspersed throughout the webpage. And if you buy the books through the ebookit links, I get a larger cut and I get it sooner.

Today’s launch of Dragon to ISS has been scrubbed due to “a helium leak in Falcon 9’s first stage.”

SpaceX also says they will be ready to launch by April 18, their next launch window.

    All these delays could start damaging cargo. Folks here are a little worried about the veggy seeds packed in November for the plant habitat.
