Watch SpaceX Launch Cargo & Supplies to the International Space Station

Watch SpaceX Launch Cargo & Supplies to the International Space Station Tune in live starting at 10:45 a.m. EST, Sun., Dec. 6 as the 21st SpaceX cargo resupply mission to the International Space Station lifts off from Launch Complex 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center. Launch is targeted at 11:17 a.m. The targeted date has changed due to poor weather conditions on Sat., Dec. 5 in the recovery area. This will be the first flight of the upgraded cargo version of the Dragon 2 spacecraft. On board are over 250 science investigations, as well as the Nanoracks Bishop Airlock, set to be attached to the station's Tranquility module. This first commercially funded space station airlock will increase the capacity for external space research at the space station.

Complete Information on Dubin-Johnson syndrome with Treatment and Prevention

It is usually diagnosed in early infancy. It appears to be associated with clotting factor VII in this population. Dubin johnson syndrome has a defect in the multispecific anion transporter gene. Likely a loss of function mutation, since the mutation affects the cytoplasmic domain. Dubin johnson syndrome is a very rare genetic disorder. In order to inherit the condition, a child must get a copy of the defective gene from both parents. Although most patients are asymptomatic, some patients complain of nonspecific right upper quadrant pain, which has been attributed to the anxiety associated with prolonged diagnostic testing.Dubin johnson syndrome occurs in both sexes but has a trend to predominate in males. In women with DJS, pregnancy or oral contraceptive consumption can induce explicit j...

The Night of a Full Moon

Sometimes our lives are so fast paced we often lose sight of the wonderful things that are right in front of us. Take the moon for example, have you ever just stopped, looked up and wondered about it (it's that big round, white thing in the sky).Okay, so your wonderings may have been triggered by your stomach and slide along the region of "is it really made of Cheese?" Or you may have broken out in a cold sweat while anxiously looking around and wondering what the heck you are doing outside during a full moon (Yes, werewolves do rule the night).This is the time to grab your telescope. With a Refracting telescope or a Reflecting telescope you can find out if the moon is indeed made of cheese, safe from whatever may be howling in the woods.Let Us Get to Know Our MoonThe moon is about 380,000...

Space Shuttle Launch Audio – play LOUD (no music) HD 1080p

Space Shuttle Launch Audio - play LOUD (no music) HD 1080p - - Created through FAIR USE for educational purposes - - STS-121 You need a sound system with a lot of power and a great sub (turned up to house shaking level) to get the right effect of this video. I made this for all the people who dreamed of seeing a launch in person but were never able to make the trip themselves. Using dozens of different video sources and countless audio versions of Shuttle launches I mixed this little clip together to mimic as close an experience to the real thing as I could. I know that the exact sequence of countdown events is somewhat compressed and not time-accurate but I was going more for the 'feel' of a high energy launch experience rather than a technical documentary. Th...
