SpaceX to recover rockets using 'giant party balloon'

SpaceX to recover rockets using 'giant party balloon'”

That cargo be atop the rocket inside one of SpaceX's Dragon capsules. But despite the recycled hardware of today's mission, SpaceX won't be landing its Falcon 9 after launch today.

Planet hunters will be keeping their fingers crossed this evening as SpaceX flings NASA's 350kg Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) into a highly elliptical orbit around the Earth. The spacecraft is expected to identify thousands of planets orbiting nearby stars. The mayor said it's a "vehicle that holds the promise of taking humanity even deeper into the cosmos than ever before". The telescope will certainly have the ability to cover almost the whole skies, and also can bring about remarkable innovations in our understanding of our cosmos.

The Falcon 9 rocket is set to take off from Space Launch Complex 40 at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station during a 30-second launch window at 6:32 p.m., Monday. Inside Kennedy Room Facility's Haul Hazardous Maintenance Center, the TESS spacecraft was secured within the Falcon 9 haul fairing to prepare for its relocate to the launching pad. NASA's Introduce Solutions Program is in charge of launch administration.

The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) is a planned space telescope for NASA's Explorers program, created to search for exoplanets using the transit method in an area 400 times larger than that covered by the Kepler mission. Additional partners include Orbital ATK, NASA's Ames Research Center, the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics and the Space Telescope Science Institute.

The following is an excerpt from Wikipedia on the TESS satellite.

Scientists expect TESS to catalogue some 20,000 transiting exoplanet candidates (most of which will be larger than Neptune), as well as 50 Earth-sized bodies. It is planned for launch in April 2018.

The main goal is to find habitable zones.
