NASA, SpaceX Launch Climate Science Research, More to Space Station

A SpaceX Dragon resupply spacecraft launched from NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida at 8:44 p.m. EDT (5:44 p.m. PDT) on Thursday and is currently travelling to the ISS

travelling to the International Space Station with more than 5,800 pounds of scientific experiments, crew supplies, and other equipment.

For the company's 25th commercial resupply services mission for NASA, the spacecraft was launched on a Falcon 9 rocket from Launch Pad 39A at Kennedy.

On July 16, it is planned to arrive at the space station independently about 11:20 a.m. EDT and stay there for nearly a month

Mapping Earth’s Dust

NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California created the Earth Surface Mineral Dust Source Investigation (EMIT)

which uses imaging spectroscopy equipment to determine the mineral makeup of dust in arid areas of the planet

Mineral dust can be blown into the atmosphere and travel great distances, affecting the climate, weather, vegetation, and other aspects of Earth. 

Speedier Immune System Aging

Immunosenescence, a term used to describe changes in immune function, is linked to ageing.

Human immune cells undergo alterations in microgravity that resemble this situation but occur more quickly than Earth's natural ageing process.
