so with soyuz being retired, what gets people up to the iss and back down now?


soyuz the booster and soyuz the person carrying spacecraft are different. soyuz the booster is based on the original r-7 icbm and has seen a series of upgrades. sometimes to engines, sometimes to computer systems, sometimes to components. i suspect you are reacting to an article like this one at spaceflightnow.com which is actually a pretty good article.the point being made there is that soyuz the booster, specifically the soyuz-u version is being retired. to be replaced by the soyuz booster. (there are at least three variants, see wikipedia on soyuz for all the details and your head hurting. get anatoly zak's magnum opus on the russian space program if you care. there is nothing else like it. soyuz spacecraft, on a more modern soyuz booster will continue carrying crew to the iss while th.






terminology - are any "strap-on" boosters held in place by actual straps?


the soyuz line all the way back to the r-7 has straps or cables connecting the boosters to the core. the straps, plus a "socket" on the core catching the front tip of the booster, is apparently how they're held on. one of the straps, near the base of the booster, is shown highlighted in blue here:this russianspaceweb page has a rendering of the boosters from the r-7 configuration showing the cables more clearly -- note that on the clockwise-from-below side of each booster the cable is split into a sort of "ring" letting the single cable from the neighboring booster pass through:soyuz aside, for any side-mounted booster on a large rocket, you want a secure method of transmitting upward force to the core. merely strapping the booster to the core would allow slippage, which you definitel...

falcon 9 - does spacex name individual boosters?


as of the 38th launch, they do not name boosters cores, but they started numbering the cores, and printing that number just around where the legs attach at the base of the booster core. the cores have serial numbers, four digits, so the first reflown booster was 1021 used on crs-8 then ses-10. the bulgariasat booster set to be reflown was first flown as iridium-1 and is serial number 1029. 1026 is the thaicomm-8 mission booster and is being used as a falcon heavy side core. the first reused dragon (crs-11 after flying crs-4) had an iss 'kill' logo painted on it. (much as fighter jets will have logos of various kills marked under the cockpit). as of this writing only one core has reflown, second due in 10 days, and no signs of "kill" markings from previous flights on cores, yet.






spacex launches cargo capsule, booster landing fails


cape canaveral, fla. — spacex launched a shipment of groceries to the international space station on tuesday, including the first espresso maker bound for orbit. but the company's third attempt to land the leftover booster on an ocean platform failed. spacex chief elon musk wrote via twitter that the first-stage booster rocket landed but then tipped over. he wants to reuse the rockets rather than discard them in the ocean to reduce launch costs. despite improvements to the booster and landing platform, musk still had predicted a less than 50 percent chance of success for the latest effort. he and other company officials repeatedly stressed that the landing test was secondary to getting the dragon capsule into orbit. indeed, nasa congratulated spacex on tuesday's "pict...






nate robinson says washington booster offered him $100k


eleven-year nba veteran nate robinson also played college football at one point. he appeared in 13 games for washington as a freshman in 2002, recording a pair of interceptions and starting six games, and then gave up football to focus on hoops.he now says that decision involved turning down six figures from a huskies booster who wanted him to stick with football. via his si podcast:when they fired rick neuheisel my freshman year that made it easy for me to make my decision to quit and go play basketball, which i wanted to do anyway. for my three years at uw, i had a booster offer me $100,000 per year to come back and play football because they needed nate robinson back on the football field because we weren’t winning any games, it wasn’t exciting. but a booster came to me, my mom sat ...

gold: which is a better investment bet, gold or gold etfs? find out


by aasif hiraniindians love gold. it would be difficult to find a person who has never invested in gold. they might have invested either in physical form, or now with time, in more evolved forms of investment like gold etfs (exchange traded funds) or sovereign gold bond scheme. gold etf is an option to invest in gold online. before we venture into pros and cons of gold and gold etf, let us first establish the objective of buying gold. are we buying for personal consumption, buying for children’s marriage or for investment? now if we are buying for personal consumption then it makes sense to buy physical gold in form of jewellery. gold bars and coins are also another way of buying physical gold to gift someone or to make jewellery in near future. but if we are buying for investment or for..

are you going for physical gold or paper gold this akshaya tritiya?


by dhaval kapadiaakshaya tritiya is considered one of the most auspicious days in india to buy gold. demand for gold, particularly physical gold in the form of jewellery, bars and coins, rises during this period. although one needs to consider additional cost (for example, storage cost) while purchasing physical gold from an investment perspective. traditionally, investors in india have typically purchased gold in physical form, which along with real estate forms a big portion of country’s household savings. this savings dynamic is beginning to change with investors also considering other than physical gold options such as gold exchange traded funds, gold fund of funds and sovereign gold bonds. investment in gold as an asset class acts as a hedge to geo-political uncertainty, store of va..






gold: gold not done and dusted, best days are still to come


by asaf hiranithe colour of gold is not matching with the sentiment from the masses. in short, what i am saying is gold is not shining, at least not in the investor's eye. in spite of gold gaining $50 in december and appreciating by close to 13 per cent in 2017 -- best since 2010 -- nobody is bothered about gold. the limelight has been taken by stocks and cryptocurrencies. warren buffet famously said, "most people get interested in stocks when everyone else is; the time to get interested is when no one else is". i think the same thing applies to gold here, too. first reason to be bullish on gold is because of the mismatch valuation of the yellow metal and equities. the s&p gsci serves as a benchmark for investment in the commodity markets and as a measure of commodity performance ov...






spacex - why won't they recover the falcon 9 from crs-14?


spacex designed the falcon 9 for reuse. they have several iterations, starting with the 1.0 design (with the tic-tac-toe grid of engines).the switch to the 1.1 design with the octaweb, was distinctive and was finally able of landing.the current model is block 3, 4, or 5 (block 3's have all been flown, and block 5 is about to fly, end of april as i write this). experimentally, spacex determined that they could affordably refly a block 3 or 4 models a maximum of 2 times. they took the lessons learned and rolled them into what they hope is their final version, block 5. thus, when a booster is on its second flight, it is not going to be flown a third time. thus the question is, what to do with second flight boosters?the crs-14 booster is on its second flight, it is core b1039 last flown as cr.






spacex test fires the first falcon 9 it landed on a barge


elon musk's space corp test fired one of the other rockets it relanded in july 2016 at the same facility, but this is the first time it fired this particular booster. spacex has been treating this falcon 9 with some extra tlc, since it's the one the company chose to ferry another payload to orbit and to prove that its rocket's first stage truly is reusable. the test's success shows that the booster still works, though the company has to ensure it can be restored to perfect condition before the relaunch can happen. spacex is aiming to send the used first stage to space as soon as march, so keep an eye out for more announcements out of its hq.






the 5 worst car seat mistakes parents are making


after the other driver ran a red light and plowed into her minivan, christine miller of santa clarita, calif., looked in the back seat for her son kyle, but he had been thrown from the vehicle and was gone forever.“if the scars on my heart were visible, people would gasp every time they saw me,” says miller. three-year-old kyle was sitting in a legal booster seat and strapped in by a seat belt at the time of the collision.“had i just known about the dangers of booster seats for toddlers, had somebody warned me, i would have kept him in a five-point harness car seat,” says miller. “that’s the dagger that twists in my heart.”she’s not alone. car accidents are the no. 1 killer of children ages 0 to 19 in the united states, according to the centers for disease control and preve...

chinese booster rocket nearly smashes into a small town


while there were no known casualties or property damage, this doesn't mean it was safe. for one thing, china normally plans booster drop zones carefully and alerts (or in some cases, evacuates) areas to make sure no one gets hurt. this didn't entirely go according to plan. moreover, the highly toxic rocket fuel and secondary explosions posed risks to curious onlookers.not that china has much choice in the matter. as the atlanticexplained, three of china's launch facilities were opened during the cold war, when concerns about attacks took precedence over absolute safety. that meant setting up shop as far away from international borders as possible, guaranteeing that some launches would pose a risk to populated areas. a 1996 disaster even sent a rocket directly into the town of xichang, k...

inorganic chemistry - why does mercury decolourise a gold ring?


the grey colour is an amalgam of mercury and gold.mercury forms amalgams with many other metals. some are used as chemical reagents in laboratory chemistry as they have different properties than the original metals involved. gold amalgam is much greyer than gold. silver amalgam has been used in dentistry.mercury has been used in the extraction of gold in mining as it can extract gold from low grade ore. but the recovery process involves distilling off the mercury which is dangerous and polluting.chemists used to work with mercury a lot and, when they did, they were recommended to remove their wedding rings or other gold jewellery as the mercury would damage the gold. once the amalgam is formed there is no easy way to reverse the process short of resmelting the ring. if the contact with mer
