There is a Space X launch to the ISS today at 10:21 AM EDT. Coverage is on NASA TV at 105W. They are going to attempt to land the first stage on a barge again. Hope NASA TV covers that event.

Folks on the ISS are NOT happy.

3 failures in a row, right? For attempts to resupply the station?

When is the next flight currently shed to go to the ISS and who's rocket is it?

Looks like the next launch to the ISS is a Progress/Soyuz launch scheduled for July 3rd, then a manned Soyuz on July 22nd.

Third failure in a row for landing I think.
First for the rocket?
A week or two ago they showed the dragon dettach from the station I think.

There was an overpressure event in the upper stage liquid oxygen tank of SpaceX launch; data suggests counter-intuitive cause, @elonmusk says

Slingshot idea is looking pretty good or Russian Burian shuttle right now.

You do understand that the Buran is a museum piece and there is NO launch mechanism for it?

In fact, it was destroyed when the hanger it was in collapsed on it. Not sure if there was a second, that never got launched, that made it into a museum. Maybe more like a mock up.
