SpaceX launches super-computer to space station

SpaceX launches super-computer to space stationSpaceX on Monday blasted off its unmanned Dragon cargo ship toward the International Space Station, carrying a host of science experiments and the most powerful computer ever sent into orbit. Three minutes after launch, the rocket separated as planned, with the long, tall portion — known as the first stage — arcing back toward Earth and the second stage continuing to propel the cargo ship to space. The first stage of the rocket then powered its thrusters and operated its grid fins to set itself down on solid ground at Cape Canaveral for a controlled, upright landing at Landing Zone 1.
