NASA Orders a Second Crew Dragon Mission From SpaceX for the ISS

WRITTEN BY: Anthony Bouchard

NASA wants to bring some of its space launches back to American soil so that it’s not always depending on other nations to resupply the International Space Station and future space missions with cold, hard supplies and astronauts to use them. As a result, it’s working with two major commercial space companies: Boeing and SpaceX.
 
NASA already has contracts with Boeing to send astronauts into space two times, and SpaceX had a contact to do it once, but NASA appears to have reached out to SpaceX for a second time to order another space launch, giving Boeing and SpaceX equal share in the commercial space flight opportunities ahead in the future of space exploration.

"The order of a second crew rotation mission from SpaceX, paired with the two ordered from Boeing will help ensure reliable access to the station on American spacecraft and rockets," said Kathy Lueders, manager of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program in a statement. "These systems will ensure reliable U.S. crew rotation services to the station, and will serve as a lifeboat for the space station for up to seven months."
 
NASA explains in the statement that this is the “fourth and final guaranteed order“ that NASA will place. This is because the contracts detailed that each company would produce the equipment necessary to withstand a minimum of two missions each, but a maximum of six. It’s up to NASA to order more than the two that have been ordered already.
 
Boeing and SpaceX have both already begun manufacturing the equipment that will be necessary to make these missions a reality. The initial orders from NASA for both companies were placed last year.
 
With the spotlight now on SpaceX following the second mission order, SpaceX is currently manufacturing four of its Crew Dragon spacecraft that will deliver astronauts into space. Two of them are for testing, while the other two are for the official missions, which may occur as soon as next year.

These spacecraft will have enough room to seat four astronauts, and carry 220 pounds of luggage. After being sent to the International Space Station, it can then dock there for at least 210 days, serving as an emergency escape craft if needed.
 
Soon, NASA will send a seventh crew member to the International Space Station using these commercial spacecraft.
 
“With the commercial crew vehicles from Boeing and SpaceX, we will soon add a seventh crew member to space station missions, which will significantly increase the amount of crew time to conduct research,” said Julie Robinson, NASA’s International Space Station chief scientist. “Given the number of investigations waiting for the crew to be able to complete their research, having more crew members will enable NASA and our partners to significantly increase the important research being done every day for the benefit of all humanity."

It will be great to see who has the more reliable spacecraft in future testing; Boeing, or SpaceX. It will also be very beneficial for the push for more American-based space exploration without the need to depend on international entities.

Testicular Cancer Awareness Month - What Do You Know About Testicular Cancer?

WRITTEN BY: Akshay Masand

By having a dedicated month for Testicular Cancer, a spotlight has been placed on the disease about the importance of understanding the risks and warning signs to look. Through dedicating an entire month, it empowers individuals, survivors, organizations, and the media to get involved in the life-saving mission of ensuring men know the importance of being advocates for their own health, and particularly the importance of a monthly testicular self exam.

In honor of Testicular Cancer Awareness Month, LabRoots and men's underwear brand Tommy John have teamed up to bring awareness to Tommy John's partnering with the Testicular Cancer Foundation to help those directly affected both during and after treatment. They will be donating a portion of their proceeds from the sale of their special edition underwear to TCF. Many of their patients receive a pair after undergoing surgery, as it makes a big difference in recovery to have a well-fitting and comfortable pair.

The company has always been set out to make men of substance feel comfortable to be their true selves, and that means being confident enough to talk about their own bodies without embarrassment. They are hoping to initially break the ice in a manner that's both fun and provocative to eventually break the silence around the subject of testicular cancer.

They will be donating a portion of their proceeds from the sale of their special edition underwear to TCF. Many of their patients receive a pair after undergoing surgery, as it makes a big difference in recovery to have a well-fitting and comfortable pair.

The company has always been set out to make men of substance feel comfortable to be their true selves, and that means being confident enough to talk about their own bodies without embarrassment. They are hoping to initially break the ice in a manner that's both fun and provocative to eventually break the silence around the subject of testicular cancer.

Testicular Cancer Awareness Month - What Do You Know About Testicular Cancer?

WRITTEN BY: Akshay Masand

By having a dedicated month for Testicular Cancer, a spotlight has been placed on the disease about the importance of understanding the risks and warning signs to look. Through dedicating an entire month, it empowers individuals, survivors, organizations, and the media to get involved in the life-saving mission of ensuring men know the importance of being advocates for their own health, and particularly the importance of a monthly testicular self exam.

In honor of Testicular Cancer Awareness Month, LabRoots and men's underwear brand Tommy John have teamed up to bring awareness to Tommy John's partnering with the Testicular Cancer Foundation to help those directly affected both during and after treatment. They will be donating a portion of their proceeds from the sale of their special edition underwear to TCF. Many of their patients receive a pair after undergoing surgery, as it makes a big difference in recovery to have a well-fitting and comfortable pair.
