COVID-Driven Oxygen Shortage Causes Texas Refinery To Partly Shut Down (Affects NASA /USAF launch too)

Recommended Posts


You bone heads who are antivaxxers should not be allowed to fill up with gasoline.  Stay home, don't expose any one else and don't use gasoline.

"Oxygen in the U.S. South is running low amid a spike in COVID infections and hospitalizations, which have led to an increased use of oxygen. Suppliers of oxygen are prioritizing deliveries to hospitals and diverting O2 supply from industrial customers to medical use.

Soaring demand for medical liquid oxygen has also impacted the space industry, which faces fuel shortages because of tighter oxygen supplies needed for rocket fuel.  

Last week, NASA said it was postponing the launch date for the Landsat 9 spacecraft scheduled to launch from Vandenberg Space Force Base in California. The Landsat 9 launch now is expected no earlier than Thursday, September 23, a week later than scheduled earlier."
