March 27, 2020 – Space Saturdays March 28, 2020

I saw this last night on Space.com – NASA picks SpaceX to fly cargo to moon-orbiting Gateway space station – Space.com: https://www.space.com/spacex-wins-cargo-contract-nasa-gateway-moon-station.htmlDecided it was a good Space Saturdays post for this week.

Dragon XL will supply the Gateway.

SpaceX cargo craft will soon reach much farther out into the final frontier, if all goes according to plan.

The California-based company already flies cargo missions to and from the International Space Station (ISS) for NASA. Now, SpaceX has scored a contract to supply Gateway, the moon-orbiting space station that the agency aims to start building in 2022, agency officials announced Friday (March 27).

Gateway is a key part of NASA’s Artemis exploration program, which seeks to establish a sustainable, long-term human presence on and around the moon by the late 2020s. The small space station will serve as a jumping-off point for sorties, both crewed and uncrewed, to the lunar surface.

SpaceX will help to keep the Gateway supplied, delivering scientific experiments and a variety of other gear to the outpost, NASA officials said. The company is guaranteed two missions under its newly announced Gateway Logistics Services contract.

SpaceX’s robotic ISS resupply runs employ the company’s Falcon 9 rocket and Dragon capsule, which can loft 13,200 lbs. (6,000 kilograms, or 6 metric tons) to low-Earth orbit. But SpaceX’s Gateway missions will use different hardware: the huge Falcon Heavy rocket and a special capsule variant called Dragon XL. (SpaceX has also developed another Dragon version, Crew Dragon, which will fly astronauts to and from the ISS under yet another NASA contract.)

Dragon XL will be able to carry more than 5 metric tons of cargo to the Gateway, SpaceX representatives said via Twitter Friday.

“Returning to the moon and supporting future space exploration requires affordable delivery of significant amounts of cargo,” SpaceX president and chief operating officer Gwynne Shotwell said in a statement on Friday.

“Through our partnership with NASA, SpaceX has been delivering scientific research and critical supplies to the International Space Station since 2012, and we are honored to continue the work beyond Earth’s orbit and carry Artemis cargo to Gateway,” she added.

Go back to 19th-century Scotland with our latest releases – FindMyPast Fridays March 27, 2020

I did not see anything last night on FindMyPast. Here’s this week’s FindMyPast FridaysGo back to 19th-century Scotland with our latest releases – FindMyPast https://www.findmypast.com/blog/new/exclusive-kilmarnock-records. They can usually be found at https://www.findmy past.com/blog/new/, either Thursday or Friday, depending on when they get posted.

Niall Cullen 27 March 2020

Findmypast is home to the fastest-growing collection of Scottish family records online.

If your clan has origins in Ayrshire, Scotland, you’ll want to see what’s new this Findmypast Friday. These latest record releases are only available online at Findmypast and have been published in partnership with East Ayrshire Family History Society.

Trace ancestors who owned or rented land in Kilmarnock with these valuation roll records from 1874. Transcripts with the most important family tree details, as well as digital copies of the original records can reveal:

  • Landlord’s and/or tenant’s names
  • Addresses
  • Description of the property
  • How much rent was paid

Scotland’s valuation rolls recorded the people, properties and taxes for each county and burgh in the country between 1855 and 1996.

These unique records of ratepayers in Kilmarnock could reveal your Scottish ancestors’ names, occupations and addresses.

Kilmarnock records

Hint: Try marriage records or censuses.

Local and central government officials collected these property records until The Lands Valuation (Scotland) Act, 1854 established a uniform process for valuing tenancies across the country.

We’re rounding-off our exclusive Kilmarnock collection with these fascinating electoral records. A combination of the records’ transcripts and digitized images of the original documents can reveal:

  • Names
  • Occupations
  • Addresses
  • Your ancestor’s chosen candidate
  • Those who didn’t vote

At the time these records were taken, the right to vote in Scotland was not universal. Only owners or tenants of residences worth more than £10 could vote, provided all of their taxes had been paid for the previous year.

Cross-referencing our new Kilmarnock records with Scottish censuses from surrounding years is a useful way to discover more details about your family and make sure you’re focusing on the right person.

We’ve added almost a century’s worth of pages from one new newspaper along with substantial updates to 10 titles from England and Ireland this week. Brand new to the site is:

As well as that, here is the list of papers that have had more pages added and the years covered:
