Communication 16-009 – Successful Launch and Rendezvous
Mission Accomplished! Today, an important milestone was reached with the successful launch and rendezvous of the supply vehicle with the Greater Earth space station in Earth orbit. Included in the supply capsule were the art supplies of resident artist Arthur Woods. Arthur talks about the recent SpaceX failure in Florida which resulted in the loss of the Falcon9 launch vehicle and the payload and the impact of this on space programs around the world. The successful docking of the supply vehicle with the Greater Earth space station indicates that the launch schedule for his impending launch into Earth orbit can be maintained.
