NASA awards ULA and SpaceX with contracts for launching Sentinel-6A and Landsat-9

NASA announced that awarder ULA and SpaceX with contracts for delivering to orbit two satellites in 2020 and 2021.

NASA has selected launch service providers and announced about planned launch dates. SpaceX was awarded with contract for delivering Sentinel-6A mission in November 2020 from SLC-4E at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. United Launch Alliance is going to launch Atlas V (401 configuration) in June 2021 with Landsat-9 under the payload fairing from SLC-3E also from Vandenberg Air Force Base.

The Sentinel-6A is result of the cooperation between NASA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), ESA and the European Organization for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites(EUMETSAT). Satellite will provide ocean altimetry and help in ocean topography measurements. Satellite will also provide troposphere and stratosphere temperature vertical profiles useful for weather forecasting thanks to the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) radio-occultation sounding technique.

Landsat-9 is also result of joined effort, this time of NASA and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). Mission of this satellite will be focused on monitoring different land resources. It will be equipped with OLI-2 imager built by Ball Aerospace for  multispectral observations. Satellite will replace Landsat-8 (launched in 2013) after it reach end of its operational life after using all the propellant. Operational life of Landsat satellites is predicted for 5 years.

Blue Origin after first test fire of latest methane fueled engine

Blue Origin announced about first test fire of their latest BE-4 engine on October 18, 2017 at their research facility in West Texas.

According to Blue Origin test was performed recently at test range in West Texas. Company did not announce how long test lasted and also gave no details about results of test fire. Still not confirmed sources claim that test fire lasted for 3 seconds with 50% thrust.

Blue Origin begun designing process of BE-4 in 2011. It was designed to be largest methane fueled rocket engine ever created with estimated thrust at 2400 kN. As company would like to start manufacturing in 2019 in June 2017 Blue Origin announced about plans for opening new manufacturing facility in Huntsville, Alabama.

Latest engine by Blue Origin, successor of smallest BE-3, was designed to power latest large rocket New Glenn and maybe in future even United launch Alliance Vulcan rocket. Powered with ecologically clean LOX as oxidizer and liquid methane engine opens new chapter in the history of Blue Origin which would like to finally enter into market with launch vehicle suitable not only for passing through Karaman’s line but also reaching geostationary transfer orbit with 13 t of cargo.

46th ISS EVA already tomorrow!

Two NASA astronauts  Randy Bresnik and Mark Vande Hei are going to perform tomorrow EVA to maintain and service International Space Station.

It will be third EVA on October 2017 after first two focused on replacing LEE latches on Canadarm2 robotic arm. First one was performed on October 5 and second on October 10. Last to be performed in October and scheduled for tomorrow to 12:05 UTC will be ultimate to restore full operationality of Canadarm2. It will be fifth for Randy Bresnik and third for Vande Hei. Randy Bresnik will lead during this spacewalk.

After leaving ISS from Quest airlock duo will focus on two main tasks and later will proceed with secondary objectives. First they will replace broken fuse in DEXTRE and prepare Special Purpose Dexterous Manipulator to following tasks. Joe Acaba will use DEXTRE to reach Camera Port 3 and install high definition camera. Later they will replace Camera and Light Assembly (CLA) on LEE-A for clear view when ROBO controllers are in use. Later astronauts will proceed to resume process of removing Multilayer Insulation Covers from various Orbital Replacement Units. MLI are covering most of ISS and also are covering spare parts attached to the outside of the station in special containers. As recent research showed that containers are well protecting parts and MLI is not necessary, Astronauts will remove them as it cannot be done remotely with utilization of Canadarm2. are not necessary anymore. Removing MLI will allow to open containers and take parts during one Canadarm2 session without involving crew and performing EVA to uncover parts before using them for service.

EVA-46 is planned to finish at in the afternoon on Friday.

NROL-52 spacecraft spotted on orbit

NROL-52 spacecraft spotted on orbit

Launched on October 15, 2017 on the top of the Atlas V (421) classified National Reconnaissance Satellite was spotted by observers hours after launch.

Rocket with NROL-52 payload was launched on 07:28 UTC on October 15, 2017, from SLC-41 at Cape Canaveral. After first phase of flight when rocket set its course to south-east it was impossible to track vehicle as ULA finished live broadcast. Also as NRO and ULA did not announce precision time of satellite deployment, it was hard to confirm on which orbit satellite was located. Thanks to space enthusiasts we know much more about NROL-52 now.

As last time Atlas V (421) was used on July 2016, satellite spotters decided to take NROL-61 as a reference for calculations to find NROL-52 orbit. Luckily only four hours after launch Paul Camilliery from Australia found and was tracking Centaur upper stage and deployed satellite. He was even able to track satellite for 83 minutes – it helped in estimating orbit of satellite to roughly 1113 km by 35802 km inclined 18.68 degrees what is close to initial orbit of NROL-61 payload deployed on 1108 km x 35806 km, 18.68°.

Also radio signals emitted by NROL-52 satellite were identical as in case of NROL-61. They were picked up by Canadian satellite tracker who also one year ago detected identical signals after NROL-61 launch. Also they were emitted regularly every 240 seconds just as one year ago.

This two facts seem to confirm that NROL-52 is in fact another SDS (Satellite Data System) satellite serving as data transmission spacecraft collecting signals from other intelligence satellites to send them to ground stations remaining out of their range.
