A few minutes ago, SpaceX launched a Dragon cargo spacecraft with NASA cargo, including Tide detergent, as part of its latest replenishment mission to the International Space Station./p>

A new Falcon 9 SpaceX rocket went into the sky at 05:56 Eastern Time Zone (13:36 Tehran time). Launched from platform 39, the two-stage launcher carries a Dragon robotic cargo capsule that delivers more than 2,984 kilograms of fresh equipment, test hardware and other equipment to astronauts on the International Space Station.

The launch on Tuesday, December 21st is the third SpaceX launch in 72 hours. The company launched Turkey's Turksat 5B satellite on Saturday, as well as a new set of Starlink satellites. While yesterday's weather forecast showed only a 30 percent chance of a favorable launch, the launch was finally confirmed and completed successfully. This is the second commercialization of the company with NASA. It is also the eighth cargo spacecraft to travel to the International Space Station this year. The cargo version of the Dragon capsule is almost identical to the manned version, helping to send more cargo into Space than ever before.

It has a unique ability that no other cargo spacecraft can do, and that is the ability to return cargo to Earth.

scientific research on this spacecraft mission on life sciences, medicine and cases Others are focused. Cargo returns are important for many of the station's scientific research, especially biomedical research, such as the CASIS PCG20 test, a protein crystallization test sponsored by Merck.

will be reviewed as part of the research How protein crystals grow in space. Research that helps treat cancer on Earth. The sooner the protein crystals reach the ground laboratory, the less they will be affected by gravity, and the more data collected will be more reliable.

other experiments will be performed by two different universities, each of which will review Bacteria in space. The University of Idaho experiment is being conducted to study how bacteria grow on different surfaces and to develop polymers that can help reduce bacteria in various missions.

The experiment at Columbia University in New York also examines the interaction between two different types of bacteria. Ground studies have shown that these two specific types can enhance each other's properties and become more dangerous. The collected data will be made available online to the public and could help better antibiotic treatments for future astronauts. Proctor and Gamble also uses Tide detergents. It was sent into Space to test its strength and performance against the harshness of its microgravity environment. Researchers hope the experiment will allow future astronauts to wash their clothes in space.
