4 astronauts returned to Earth in rare SpaceX night splashdown

first_imgCAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — SpaceX safely returned four astronauts from the International Space Station on Sunday, making the first U.S. crew splashdown in darkness since the Apollo 8 moonshot.The Dragon capsule parachuted into the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Panama City, Florida, just before 3 a.m., ending the second astronaut flight for Elon Musk’s company.It was an express trip home, lasting just 6 1/2 hours.The astronauts, three American and one Japanese, flew back in the same capsule — named Resilience — in which they launched from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in November. Advertisement“We welcome you back to planet Earth and thanks for flying SpaceX,” SpaceX’s Mission Control radioed moments after splashdown. “For those of you enrolled in our frequent flyer program, you’ve earned 68 million miles on this voyage.”“We’ll take those miles,” said spacecraft commander Mike Hopkins. “Are they transferrable?” SpaceX replied that the astronauts would have to check with the company’s marketing department.Within a half-hour of splashdown, the charred capsule — resembling a giant toasted marshmallow — had been hoisted onto the recovery ship, with the astronauts exiting soon afterward. NASA and SpaceX managers marveled at how fast and smooth the operation went. The company’s senior adviser, Hans Koenigsmann, said “it looked more like a race car pit stop than anything else.” RELATEDTOPICS Spacecraft carrying four astronauts docks with International Space Station April 26, 2021 AdvertisementRecommended ArticlesBrie Larson Reportedly Replacing Robert Downey Jr. As The Face Of The MCURead more81 commentsGal Gadot Reportedly Being Recast As Wonder Woman For The FlashRead more29 comments AdvertisementTags: Landingspacex SpaceX Falcon 9 debris lights up Pacific Northwest sky March 28, 2021center_img SpaceX secures $2.89 billion NASA contract for lunar spacecraft April 19, 2021 AdvertisementDC Young Fly knocks out heckler (video) – Rolling OutRead more6 comments’Mortal Kombat’ Exceeded Expectations Says WarnerMedia ExecutiveRead more2 commentsDo You Remember Bob’s Big Boy?Read more1 commentsKISS Front Man Paul Stanley Reveals This Is The End Of KISS As A Touring Band, For RealRead more1 comments NASA astronauts headed to ISS after successful Cape Canaveral launch April 24, 2021 Advertisement Hopkins was the first one out, doing a little dance as he emerged under the intense spotlights.“It’s amazing what can be accomplished when people come together,” he told SpaceX flight controllers at company headquarters in Hawthorne, California. “Quite frankly, you all are changing the world. Congratulations. It’s great to be back.”The 167-day mission was the longest for a crew capsule launching from the U.S. The previous record of 84 days was set by NASA’s final Skylab station astronauts in 1974.Saturday night’s undocking left seven people at the space station, four of whom arrived a week ago via SpaceX.“Earthbound!” NASA astronaut Victor Glover, the capsule’s pilot, tweeted after departing the station. “One step closer to family and home!”Hopkins and Glover — along with NASA’s Shannon Walker and Japan’s Soichi Noguchi — should have returned to Earth last Wednesday, but high offshore winds forced SpaceX to pass up a pair of daytime landing attempts. Managers switched to a rare splashdown in darkness, to take advantage of calm weather.SpaceX had practiced for a nighttime return, just in case, and even recovered its most recent station cargo capsule from the Gulf of Mexico in darkness. Infrared cameras tracked the astronauts’ capsule as it re-entered the atmosphere; it resembled a bright star streaking through the night sky.All four main parachutes could be seen deploying just before splashdown, which was also visible in the infrared.last_img read more

Ten Laois based players named on Leinster rugby U-18 girls squad By Alan Hartnett – 7th June 2018 Portarlington edge out neighbours O’Dempsey’s while Graigue defeat Stradbally and The Heath gain revenge on Portlaoise Twitter Community TAGSACFL Division 1A Neighbours and rivals clashed in tonight’s ACFL Division 1A games.With just a couple of games to go in the league, things at the top and the bottom are getting very tight.Graiguecullen and Stradbally went head to head in Fr Maher Park while neighbours Portarlington and O’Dempsey’s did the same in Killenard.Also, a potentially decisive game in the race for second place saw Portlaoise host The Heath.Here is a run down on how the games went:Portarlington 0-19 O’Dempsey’s 2-8Portarlington are out of the relegation places after they defeated neighbours O’Dempsey’s tonight.Des Cooney and Noel Coss’ men won by five points and this is a result which deals a serious blow to reigning league champions O’Dempsey’s prospects of regaining their crown. WhatsApp The away side started this game like a train and were five points to the good after ten minutes.Jason Ward, Adam Ryan, David Murphy and Jordan Fitzpatrick were all on target as Portarlington opened up a lead they would never relinquish.O’Dempsey’s replied with a brace from Brian Nugent but Portarlington stepped on the gas again with Jason Ward (2) and David Murphy moving them six clear with five minutes to play.Both sides were then reduced to 14 men as Micheal Finlay and Graham Weldon were shown straight red cards before the home side finished the half well.Barry Kelly struck for the game’s opening goal and Matthew Finlay raised a white flag for O’Dempsey’s. Portarlington had David Murphy, Adam Ryan and Jason Ward kicking points though and led 0-10 to 1-3 at the break.Conor Meredith and Jason Ward swapped points on the resumption of play before O’Dempsey’s were awarded a penalty after 42 minutes.Conor Meredith took it and scored to leave it 0-11 to 2-4. However, Portarlington responded brilliantly to that set back.Steven Lyons, Alex Mohan, Jason Ward and Adam Ryan all pointed to put clear water between the teams again.Barry Kelly and Conor Meredith cut the gap to four but Portarlington would not be denied.Jason Ward took his tally to seven points and although the final two points of the game came to O’Dempsey’s, Portarlington won by five in the end.SCORERS – Portarlington: Jason Ward 0-7 (three frees), David Murphy (two frees) and Adam Ryan 0-4, Jordan Fitzpatrick 0-2, Steven Lyons 0-1, Alex Mohan 0-1 O’Dempsey’s: Conor Meredith 1-3 (1-0 pen), Barry Kelly 1-1, Brian Nugent (one free) Matthew Finaly 0-2 (one free) 0-2 eachPortarlington: Scott Osbourne; Eoin Kennedy, Cathal Ryan, Alex Mohan; Curtis Lyons, Paddy O’Sullivan, Graham Weldon; Adam Ryan, David Murphy; Johnny Fulham, Jordon Fitzpatrick, Steven Lyons; Dave Condron, Jason Ward, Evan Clancy.

Brian Byrne, Lee Timmons, Danny Aylesbury, Jamie Parr and Luke Aylesbury all scored points early on.Stradbally hit back through Podge Langton before they had a goal chance as Colm Kelly’s shot was blocked on the line.Kelly responded with two more points before Graiguecullen almost had a goal themselves when a ball came back off the post to Lee Timmons who fired wide.Brian Byrne landed a brace before the Barrowsiders grabbed the game’s only goal as we approached half time. A ball broke around the Stradbally goalmouth and Chri Hurley pounced to score a crucial goal.Colm Kelly ended the half with two more points but Stradbally trailed by 0-6 to 1-8 at half time.Stradbally started the second half really well. Colm Kelly added two more points while John Clancy and Jody Dillon also scored to cut the gap to one.But it was a period that Stradbally will look back upon with some regret as they could also have have had three goals.Colm Kelly forced two great saved from Graiguecullen keeper Danny Bolger after Podge Fitzpatrick had hit the post.But Graiguecullen steadied the ship with points from Aaron Forbes and Jamie Parr.Stradbally refused to go away as Damien Murphy and Colm Kelly reduced the deficit to one again as we approached full time.But Graiguecullen would win this game and Jamie Parr’s late point gave them the cushion they needed to hold on by two in the end.SCORERS – Graiguecullen: Jamie Parr and Brian Byrne 0-3 each, Chris Hurley 1-0, Danny Aylesbury 0-2 Lee Timmons, Luke Aylesbury and Aaron Forbes 0-1 each Stradbally: Colm Kelly 0-8, Podge Langton 0-1, John Clancy 0-1, Jody Dillon 0-1, Damien Murphy 0-1Graiguecullen: Danny Bolger; Tunde Ogunfowra, Bobby Doyle, Martin Doyle; Luke Aylesbury, Chris Hurley, Dean Malone; Shane O’Neill, Paul Mulready; James Doogue, Jamie Parr, Aaron Forbes; Lee Timmons, Brian Byrne, Danny AylesburyStradbally: Wayne Comerford; Liam Clancy, Jamie Kavanagh, Colm Clancy; Damien Murphy, Liam Knowles, Charlie O’Brien; Jack Deegan, Conor Delaney; Podge Fitzpatrick, Jody Dillon, John Clancy; Podge Langton, Colm Kelly, Greg Ramsbottom.

10 potential candidates for the Laois hurling manager’s job

first_img Twitter Twitter WhatsApp Facebook Community Pinterest WhatsApp Ten Laois based players named on Leinster rugby U-18 girls squad By LaoisToday Reporter – 12th June 2018 Who will become the next Laois manager? Expect this story to run and run. Eamonn Kelly has stepped down as Laois hurling manager and the search to replace him will get underway in the coming weeks.Expect many names to be linked to the role.Here we profile 10 names that could be in the mix.Arien DelaneyFormer Camross manager Arien DelaneyAfter an external appointment goes wrong, there is always a clamour among some supporters to appoint an insider.And Camross native Arien Delaney certainly fits the bill. He guided his home club to the senior championship last year and is currently coaching Shinrone in Offaly.Joe Phelan and Mark Dowling are currently the only two players from Camross on the Laois panel so maybe if Delaney had the job, the likes of Dwane Palmer, Ciaran Collier, Damien Keenan and maybe even Zane Keenan might join them?Paul CuddyPaul CuddyFormer Long-serving Laois centre-back. A selector under Cheddar. Current Ballacolla manager and guided his native Castletown to SHC ‘A’ honours in 2016.Gave everything to the Laois jersey and has enjoyed success at club level since going into management.Niall RigneyFormer Laois manager Niall RigneyManaged Laois from 2008-2010 after taking over from Damien Fox midway through 2008 championship season.Niall was a selector prior that and Portlaoise manager. He has since managed James Stephens to senior championship success in Kilkenny and was involved in a coaching capacity with Doon in Limerick last year.Diarmuid MullinsOriginally from Portlaoise and a former dual player with the club – as well as an All Ireland minor football winner with Laois in 1996 and 1997 – Mullins is now based in Limerick where he’s a teacher in Crescent Comprehensive.Mullins is heavily involved in a variety of sports in Limerick at schools, club and county level.He has worked closely with former Clare manager Tony Considine in a number of high profile club roles – including Kilmallock in Limerick and Nenagh Eire Og in Limerick.Currently in charge of Mungret in the Premier Intermediate championship in Limerick, the club he transferred to from Portlaoise.Niall MoranNiall MoranAn unlikely one – but one of the most highly regarded young coaches/managers in the country.The former Limerick player was central to the development of Limerick side Ardscoil Ris into one of the top hurling schools in Munster and would have coached a number of the current Limerick and Clare seniors.DJ CareyIT Carlow manager DJ CareyThe former Kilkenny legend has been over the IT Carlow Fitzgibbon Cup team in recent years and guided them to a first ever final in 2017 where he had the likes of Cha Dwyer, Stephen Maher, Enda Rowland and Dwane Palmer as key players.So he certainly knows a lot of the Laois lads and may well be tempted to take his first step into inter-county management.Tommy BuggyThe Castlecomer man brought Borris-Kilcotton to the 2012 Laois final and Clough-Ballacolla to last year’s final.He has managed a host of teams in Kilkenny as well. A retired prison officer who opened an auctioneer’s office in Portlaoise late last year.Ken HoganTipperary’s Ken HoganThe former Tipperary player managed his native county to All Ireland U-21 honours as well as a spell as senior boss.He has experience in Laois too as he was in charge of Borris-Kilcotton when they won the Laois title in 2016. He also enjoyed a successful time over Offaly side Coolderry.Anthony Daly Anthony DalyAnthony Daly is linked with the Laois job every time it becomes vacant.After guiding Clarecastle, Kilmoyley and Kilmihil to club titles in their respective counties, he had an unsuccessful three-year spell as manager of the Clare senior team.During a six-year tenure as Dublin manager Daly guided the team to their first provincial and national successes in over fifty years.Would be the most profile of all the men on this list.Seamus ‘Cheddar’ Plunkett In 2015, the Laois manager was Seamus PlunkettThey say you should never go back, but one imagines the majority of Laois players and supporters would be happy if Cheddar came back.He was appointed in 2012 and oversaw a transformation in Laois hurling that saw them run the likes of Galway and Clare close on several occasions.He resigned at the end of the 2015 season and went on to manage his native Portlaoise – a role he stepped down from last year after they were relegated to Senior ‘A’.SEE ALSO – Eamonn Kelly steps down as Laois hurling manager Charlie Flanagan on Electric Picnic: ‘I’d ask organisers to consult with community leaders’ RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Rugby Previous articlePublic meeting to hear of water pollution concerns over ESB substationNext articleA new building approved for one of Laois’s oldest schools LaoisToday Reporter Home Sport GAA 10 potential candidates for the Laois hurling manager’s job SportGAAHurlingLaois Senior Hurling Team TAGSLaois senior hurlers Facebook Pinterest Five Laois monuments to receive almost €200,000 in government funding Community 10 potential candidates for the Laois hurling manager’s joblast_img read more
