This seems to be Japan’s version of a crawler-transporter for very carefully and slowly transporting heavy rockets from the assembly building to the launchpad.

X-15 Rocket Plane – UFO Encounters on the Edge of Space

X-15 Rocket Plane - UFO Encounters on the Edge of Space

This presentation focuses on a pair of reported UFO incidents that occurred in 1962 during the X-15 Rocket Plane Research Program. Both these encounters, one during an April, 1962 X-15 flight by NASA test pilot Joseph Walker and the other during a July 1962 flight by USAF test pilot Major Robert White, took place at extremely high altitudes, right on the fringe of space. During Major White’s high-altitude test flight, while at apogee he reported sighting and visually tracking an unidentified object “for a full five seconds before it moved away”. Two frames of film from the X-15’s rear-facing “wing and empennage” stop-motion 16mm camera appear to capture an object (or objects) that seem to match Major White’s visual description of the UFO he saw. Several months earlier, during NASA test pilot Joe Walker’s X-15 high-altitude flight, cameras aboard captured what Walker later described as being “five or six disc-shaped or cylindrical objects” near his aircraft. During a May 11th, 1962 lecture at the “Second National Conference on the Peaceful Uses of Space Research” in Seattle, Washington, Joe Walker also claimed that one of his mission objectives during his April 1962 flight in the X-15 was to detect and film UFOs at high altitude. During the lecture, Walker showed several photographs to the audience of these UFOs captured on film, although NASA has since only ever made one of these frames public. Here is the link to the online version of the August 3, 1962 issue of LIFE

Successful SpaceX Launch Rocket International Space Station First Private Company Dragon Space X

Liftoff of Falcon 9 and Dragon from Launch Complex 40 in Cape Canaveral, Fl. October 7, 2012. SpaceX Launches Rocket to International Space Station First Private Company to Resupply the Space SpaceX is set to usher in a new era for NASA’s space flight program when a towering white rocket blasts off from Cape Canaveral, Fla., and heads to the International Space Station on a resupply mission. If successful, Space Exploration Technologies Corp., better known as SpaceX, will be the first private company to resupply the space station on a contracted mission for NASA. The company has a .6-billion contract to carry out 12 such cargo missions for the space agency in the coming years. SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket is set to blast off Sunday at 5:35 pm PDT from Space Launch Complex 40 in Cape Canaveral carrying its Dragon capsule packed with 1000 pounds of food, experiments and supplies. The launch will be webcast on NASA TV beginning at 4 pm PDT and in the video stream above, which is provided by SpaceX. According to the latest report, there is a 60% chance the weather will be clear enough for launch. Hawthorne-based SpaceX has had three launches with its Falcon 9 rocket — all of them successful. In May, the company performed a successful demonstration mission to the space station, showing NASA that it could do the job. “I’m still quite nervous about it because it’s just our second mission to the station,” Elon Musk, SpaceX’s 41-year-old billionaire founder and chief executive
