Elon Musk showed the moment of landing o East Flatbush
Elon Musk showed the moment of landing of the Falcon-9 rocket.
Previously, the landing could be seen only in poor quality during the live broadcast of the space agency.
Falcon-9 covers two stages. The first stage after each space operation - returns to Earth. The second is a slightly reduced version of the first, but, in turn, after disconnection continues to rise to the planned orbit. Once it reaches it, the structure pushes the payload, turns on the engines, goes towards the atmosphere and gradually burns.

On July 6, the US Department of Transportation issued a final order banning most flights between the United States and Belarus
The United States decided to do so due to the forced landing of a Ryanair plane by the regime of unrecognized President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko and the detention of opposition leader Roman Protasevich.
The order prohibits airlines from selling tickets for flights between the two countries if the flight is not scheduled for humanitarian or national security reasons. There are no direct passenger flights between the United States and Belarus.
The US Department of Transportation proposed such a ban last week. The Office did not receive any objections in this regard, so it introduced it.

Two SA wineries receive prestigious Green Emblem award – while prohibition still leaves a sour note - Business Insider South Africa
South African wineries have scooped international acclaim for their sustainable cultivation and production practices.
The newly introduced Robert Parker Green Emblem has been awarded to 24 wineries around the world, with two South African farms getting the seal of approval.The award recognises wineries that demonstrate "extraordinary efforts in the pursuit of environmentally friendly practices".Reyneke Wines in Stellenbosch and Sadie Family Wines near Malmesbury have both received international acclaim.But the ongoing alcohol ban under Adjusted Alert Level 4 lockdown gives these award-winning wineries little cause for celebration.For more stories go to www.BusinessInsider.co.za.Two South African wineries have been recognised for their sustainable methods of production and have each earned a prestigious Green Emblem awarded by the Robert Parker Wine Advocate. Robert Parker is regarded as one of the world's highest authorities on fine wines, having developed the ground-breaking 100-point rating system to score wines on colour, appearance, aroma, bouquet, flavour, and finish. This scale has been expanded and emulated over the past 30 years, with high-scoring bottles of wine classified as extraordinary and baring Parker's seal of approval. The Wine Advocate is a highly respected bimonthly publication in the United States, featuring reviews, advice, and scorecards penned by Parker and his team of international reviewers. The publication recently introduced its Green Emblem list, recognising 24 wineries from across the globe which have "demonstrated extraordinary efforts in the pursuit of environmentally friendly practices." "Our new Organic and Biodynamic filters and the Robert Parker Green Emblem recognitions are our way of recognising the increasing importance to wine consumers of sustainable practices in wine production," said Editor-in-Chief Lisa Perrotti-Brown. "No other wine appreciation website is ... empowering wine lovers who want to drink more sustainably. With these new enhancements to our website, our subscribers now have the ability to easily find great wines produced with a like-minded philosophy of sustaining the health and viability of our planet for future generations." While wines certified as organic or biodynamic – produced without chemical fertilisers, herbicides, synthetic pesticides, or chemical additives – may been been awarded a Green Emblem, this certification is not a prerequisite. Instead, the focus is on long-term environmental protection and biodiversity, with those recognised for sustainable viticulture carrying Parker's new badge across all wines produced by the winery. Alongside producers from Spain, France, Italy, the US, Austria, Australia, New Zealand, and Germany, two South African wineries now carry the Robert Parker Green Emblem. Reyneke Wines in Stellenbosch is one of the local wineries recognised by Robert Parker. The farm, which traces its routes back to 1863, produces its own fertiliser and avoids herbicides, pesticides, and fungicide, creating wines which are certified organic by the National Organic Program (NOP) in the US and European Union. The winery is also recognised for its biodynamic agricultural processes – in preserving the existing ecosystem – by Demeter International. "Being awarded the Robert Parker Green Emblem means a lot to Reyneke wines," owner and viticulturist Johan Reyneke told Business Insider South Africa. "Robert Parker is arguably one of the most influential wine critics in the world, and his recognition of our efforts in going green and being all things sustainable, is a huge accolade." Sadie Family Wines, located roughly 70 kilometres from Stellenbosch in the Swartland region, also received Parker's Green Emblem of approval. "Eben Sadie, owner of Sadie Family Wines, has lived by a simple rule: to interfere with the wine as little as possible, allowing the wine's natural essence to shine through, proudly displaying the subtleties of the vintage, so that their expressions of terroir and varietal purity may sing true with a sense of time and place," noted the Robert Parker reviewer. And while these awards are testament to two South African wineries' excellence in sustainability, the country's ongoing prohibition of alcohol, enforced to limit the strain on healthcare services amid a burgeoning third wave of Covid-19 infections, gives these wineries little reason to celebrate. The latest alcohol ban, implemented under Adjusted Alert 4 lockdown, adds to 19 weeks of sale restrictions – over the last 15 months – which has decimated South Africa's wine sector. The three prior alcohol bans have cost wineries R8 billion in lost sales and threatened 27,000 jobs, according to wine association Vinpro, which has launched an urgent interim interdict application to lift the ban on wine sales in the Western Cape. "The current lockdown situation in South Arica has had disastrous consequences for the South African wine industry. Prohibition has never worked and just puts the good guys out of business while pushing the sale of alcohol underground," said Reyneke. "On the upside the South African wine industry is known for its resilience, and we've got incredible support from the international community."

Australia is depending on help in supplies from the European Union when next week to fulfill the rising demand for Pfizer vaccines while the United States keeps on restricting exports from its pharmaceutical giants. Treasurer Josh Frydenberg said the vaccine supplies were coming “in very significant quantities” throughout the next few many months in the midst of a developing dispute with Labor over why the government didn’t get more doses sooner. The government is certain of getting 2.8 million Pfizer doses this month however estimates that only 300,000 will show up this week, setting up a challenge to get a greater shipment next week. All the Pfizer vaccines transported to Australia have come from the European Union up until now and this is relied upon to proceed for the 32.6 million doses guaranteed in a surge of supplies from August to December. Mr. Frydenberg denied the government had not paid enough to vaccine suppliers to get products when numerous nations have dominated Australia as far as vaccinations per head of population. We continue to secure as much supply as we can and we continue to have discussions with those major companies, he said. I dont think it is an issue of paying enough as you know we have put more than $7 billion to work in terms of the vaccine distribution as well as the acquisition of the vaccines. With Australias position, having very successfully compared to many other countries suppressed the virus, we didnt receive as much as other countries in more emergency situations. But we know the supply is coming online in very significant quantities. The comments feature the governments view that vaccine makers consider the scale of a country’s coronavirus infections when deciding the nations that require urgent supplies. With the country’s peak medical advisers suggesting the Pfizer messenger RNA vaccine for individuals up to the age of 60 instead of AstraZeneca’s viral vector vaccine, Australia is suffering a lack of Pfizer imports simultaneously it produces around one million AstraZeneca doses every week at CSL facilities in Melbourne. Health authorities regulated 165,475 shots on Tuesday to take the country’s vaccination rate to 9.8 percent (based on two doses) of those aged more than 16. Labor leader Anthony Albanese said the vaccine rollout was “a shocker” because the government had failed to hit enough deals with producers. We are under 10 percent. We should be doing much better, he said. They didnt do enough deals with enough companies. They didnt do the deals fast enough. They were too slow. Health Minister Greg Hunt agreed in May to purchase 25 million doses from another mRNA maker, Moderna, yet just 10 million of this is expected this calendar year. The Biden organization reported in May it would permit exports of Pfizer and Moderna to Canada and Mexico, while it has likewise sent supplies to Brazil and Taiwan and this week guaranteed 4,000,000 Moderna doses to Indonesia. The Pfizer vaccine was developed with the German organization BioNTech and is produced in the US, Germany, and Belgium. Moderna is produced in the US and Switzerland. The EU imposed controversial export controls on COVID-19 vaccines recently yet has exported around half of its production. The President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, said on March 24 the fundamental export destinations up to that point were the United Kingdom (with 10.9 million doses), Canada (6.6 million), Japan (5.4 million), Mexico (4.4 million), Saudi Arabia (1.5 million), Singapore (1.5 million), Chile (1.5 million), Hong Kong (1.3 million), Korea (1 million) and Australia (1 million). By May 6, the EU vaccine production had arrived at a point where Ms von der Leyen said 200 million doses had been delivered to individuals within the European Union and another 200 million had gone to different nations.
