NASA lost two more spacecraft this week, the Dawn and Kepler, saying that they ran out of gas...

How many have been lost now, just in the past year or so?

This will be a merged topic including my earlier Nasa News Topics and MadMax's Nasa News 2018 etc. See the metro UK article for two videos of the space X docking.

SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule welcomes ISS astronaut aboard after docking

Astronaut Anne McClain has become the first aboard the new crew capsule

The uncrewed spacecraft launched from Nasa’s Kennedy Space Centre in Florida at 2.49am local time (7.49am UK time) on March 2 as planned, on top of a Falcon 9 rocket, carrying a dummy pilot called Ripley – a nod to Sigourney Weaver’s character in the Alien movies – loaded with sensors to feed back information on the journey’s progress. It successfully made contact with the orbiting space station where McClain was able to float inside and record a video beamed back across the internet.

PRIVATE MOON LANDING TOMORROW: When humans return to the Moon, it might not be NASA sending them. While America's next Moon rocket is billions of dollars over budget and years behind schedule, a small Israeli company is poised to touchdown on the Moon tomorrow. Their robot named "Beresheet" is scheduled to land on Mare Serenitatis (the Sea of Serenity) on April 11th around 3 pm Eastern time. The event will be livestreamed by SpaceIL, the first private company to land on lunar soil. Robots now, humans next? Stay tuned.

X-37B Military Space Plane's Latest Mystery Mission Passes 600 Days
By Mike Wall 3 hours ago Spaceflight

Exactly what it's doing up there is unclear.

The U.S. Air Force's X-37B space plane has now been circling Earth for more than 600 days on its latest mystery mission. 

SEE [ US Air Force's Secretive X-37B Space Plane By Karl Tate March 03, 2011(Infographic)://www.space.com/75-x-37b-spaceplane.html ]

Article continued: The reusable robotic vehicle, which looks like a miniature version of NASA's space shuttle orbiters, launched atop a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Sept. 7, 2017.

As of today (April 30), the space plane has been aloft for 601 days, on a mission known as Orbital Test Vehicle 5 (OTV-5) because it's the fifth flight of the X-37B program.

It's unclear what exactly the spacecraft is doing up there. X-37B missions are classified, and Air Force officials tend to speak of project goals in general terms, as this excerpt from the X-37B fact sheet shows: "The primary objectives of the X-37B are twofold: reusable spacecraft technologies for America's future in space and operating experiments which can be returned to, and examined, on Earth."

Still, the Air Force does divulge some payloads flying on X-37B missions. For example, we know that OTV-5 includes the Advanced Structurally Embedded Thermal Spreader experiment (ASETS-II), which is measuring the performance of electronics and oscillating heat pipes in the space environment.

The Air Force has at least two X-37B vehicles, both of which were built by Boeing. Each space plane is 29 feet (8.8 meters) long and 9.6 feet (2.9 m) tall, with a wingspan of almost 15 feet (4.6 m). The solar-powered spacecraft have payload bays about the size of a pickup-truck bed.

2017:  SpaceX launched the X378 space plane, atop the falcon rocket.
The falcon rockets land vertically and the space plane lands horizontally. l better post this...before I lose it.

The International Space Station experienced a "huge" power failure on Monday, meaning that technicians were not able to pinpoint the cause of the blackout and restore power.  The station will be uninhabitable until reliable power can be restored.

A Space-X shuttle that was scheduled to launch today to re-supply the ISS is expected to be cancelled.

This is just one more incident in a series of mishaps to the ISS over the past several months.

INDIAN MOON LAUNCH TODAY: India is on its way to the Moon. Earlier today, the country's space agency launched the 4-ton Chandrayaan-2 spacecraft from the edge of the Bay of Bengal. The payload contains a lunar orbiter, a lander and a 6-wheeled rover, scheduled to touch down on Sept. 7th. This marks India's first attempt to make a 'soft' landing on the Moon — a feat so far achieved only by the United States, Russia and China.

SpaceX's massive Starship prototype lifts off

New York (CNN Business)A prototype of SpaceX's Mars rocket roared to life Thursday night, lifting the vehicle into the air for a landmark test.

It was the first time the experimental craft, nicknamed "Starhopper," flew free without being tethered to the ground.
SpaceX's goal was to lift the spacecraft about 65 feet into the air before gently landing it nearby — what's SpaceX called a "hop test." It's not clear exactly how high the craft flew. Footage captured by reporters present at the South Texas launch site show fire and smoke erupting from Starhopper's massive Raptor rocket engine, obscuring the vehicle from view.
SpaceX CEO Elon Musk said the flight was a success.

"Water towers *can* fly," he joked in a tweet, referencing Starhopper's likeness to a cylindrical water tank. He also shared views of the launch that were captured by a nearby drone and a camera near the Raptor engine.
Musk tweeted that SpaceX will next attempt a 200 meter, or 650 foot, hop test "in a week or two."

Starhopper's successful run came one day after a hop attempt was aborted three seconds after the Raptor engine fired up. The craft never left the ground, and stray flames appeared to shoot out from the top of the vehicle, but no serious damage was done. Musk said the hop test was called off because the fuel was "colder than expected," causing an issue with pressure levels inside the vehicle.
Starhopper is designed to be an early precursor to a deep-space exploration rocket called Starship, and Musk has said rapid development of the technology is a top priority for SpaceX.
The latest design for Starship, which was earlier referred to as BFR, show it riding into orbit atop the most powerful rocket booster ever built. SpaceX hopes to use the launch system to deliver massive loads of satellites into orbit, and eventually to shuttle humans out into the solar system to explore and colonize Mars.
Yusaku Maezawa, the Japanese billionaire who landed a deal with SpaceX to one day use a Starship spacecraft to circle the moon, tweeted praised to Musk.
"Congrats!!! Moon is right there!" he wrote.
