"We don't see any significant positive catalyst for the stock."
Welcome to version 4.21 of the Missile Report! There's a lot of news this week about rockets, from the near-success in South Korea (good luck, next time the light rocket) to NASA's much-anticipated launch vehicles.
As always, readers' submissions are welcome, and if you don't want to miss an issue, please subscribe using the box below (the form does not appear on AMP-enabled versions of the site). Each report includes information on small, medium and heavy missiles, as well as a quick look at the next three launches in the calendar.
Rocket tested to retrieve the next missile. After its next launch, "Love at First Sight," the Rocket Lab first attempts to control an Electron rocket in the ocean and then retrieve the vehicle from the water. For the first time, a helicopter will be stationed in the recovery area about 200 nautical miles from shore to observe the landing in preparation for future aerial efforts for visual tracking and surveillance.
Teach lessons for further improvements... Launched before 11 November with the primary objective of deploying two Earth observation satellites for BlackSky Global Monitoring. This mission will be Rocket Lab's third ocean phase recovery from the electron phase. "I am excited to see what we learn from this launch and to implement it in the future with aerial reconnaissance missions," Peter Beck, managing director of the Missile Laboratory, said in a statement.

South Korean missile cannot reach orbit. Korea's first home-made rocket, the Nuri, was successfully launched from the Naro Space Center on Thursday. The first and second stages of the rocket were implemented nominally, but due to the problem of closing the first third stage, the boiler's carrying could not reach a stable orbit. The optical rocket is designed to send 1.5 tons into orbit.
The new space age is about to begin... Since the first and second phases have done well, South Korea is likely to move forward in the second phase. Light effort next May. According to Reuters, South Korean President Moon Jae-in watched the launch from the space center. "It won't be long before we can launch it in exactly the right direction," he said. The "Korean Space Age" is approaching. (Posted by EllPeaTea and Ken Bean) Subscribe!
The Virgin Galactic pilot has been transferred to Blue Origin. Virgin Galactic was responsible for Blue Origin before its launch was announced earlier this year.
Blue Origin Outlook ... will be joining the Blue Origin "Advanced Development Programs" team, Stuckey said, telling him that he will do his best on the broadcast network to provide amazing insights  CEO Jeff Bezos will help humans not only survive in space, but In effect it becomes a space of species. The investment firm said it was no longer confident that a second SpaceShip III vehicle, the Inspire, would actually be built. It also expressed concern about the recent delays to Unit 23's flight.
More short-range negatives than positives.. With Eve (motherhood time) on hold due to the end of her eight-month lead, Morgan Stanley wrote: “In June 2022 at the first opportunity, we don't see any significant positive catalyst for the stock until then.” "Short-Term Stock Increases".
Starliner is discontinued by 2022. NASA and Boeing officials said Tuesday that they have successfully removed and analyzed two valves from the Starliner spacecraft. Most of them have been flown to the Marshall Space Flight Center in Alabama. The forensic examination - these two valves are checked with various techniques including a CT scan - is part of Boeing's ongoing efforts to diagnose the problem of "stuck" valves. The Starliner unmanned test flight was canceled on August 3.
Will the force be with Starliner? ... the company and NASA conduct tests and analyzes in Florida and Alabama at the Boeing test site in White Sands, New Mexico. Boeing Commercial Crew Program Manager John Wilmer acknowledged that trying to identify and fix the root cause will take time. He said Boeing is now targeting the "first half" of 2022 for the OFT-2 Starliner's unmanned test flight. A source told Ars that the date is "earlier" than May 2022.Advertising
The mission of the Chinese crew begins safely. The second crew of three astronauts on China's Shenzhou-13 mission flew Friday at Tiananmena Space Station. The March 2F long rocket was removed from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in the Gobi Desert at 3:23 p.m. on October 15, according to Espanyo.
New Duration Record... Zhejiang Commander Wang Yaping and Ye Guangfu formed the crew of the three Shenzhou-13 units. The spacecraft succeeded in making a radial appointment with Tianhe. The three are expected to stay in Tianhe for six months with a length of 16.6 meters and a diameter of 4.2 meters, the longest stay in China of up to three months. (Provided by Ken Bean.)
The next Ariane 5 mission will be the heaviest ever. The next launch of the Ariane 5 missile is scheduled for Friday, October 22, at 9:01 p.m. EDT (1:01 UTC on Saturday). With a total performance of about 11.2 tons, Arianespace said it would be the heaviest cargo ever launched by an Ariane 5 ECA, beating the previous record in 2017 with a VA237 of nearly 300 kg.
Whoa.. the cumulative mass of its two payloads is 10.2 tons, the heaviest mass in history ever launched by a rocket into GTO orbit. The mission will also be the tallest Ariane 5 ever, with a height of 1.5 meters compared to the standard configuration. This is the last launch before the James Webb Space Telescope, which is scheduled to launch in December on Ariane 5. (Provided by Ken Penn.) p>
The next launch date for the NASA crew has been delayed by a day. The US space agency said this week that NASA and SpaceX are currently targeting the agency at 2:21 a.m. EDT (06:21 UTC) on October 31 to launch the agency's Crew 3 to the International Space Station. This provides more time to process the spacecraft. The backup release time and date is 1:10 a.m. Wednesday, November 3rd. Halloween action...NASA astronauts Raja Chari (mission leader), Tom Marshburn (pilot) and Kayla Barron (mission specialist)), as well as ESA astronaut Matthias Maurer, also mission expert, SpaceX Crew Dragon Endurance spacecraft The Falcon 9 rocket launches from Launch Complex 39A at the agency's Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

The DART mission arrives at the launch site. NASA's Dual Asteroid Transformation (DART) spacecraft has arrived in California, where it will be launched with a Falcon 9 rocket in late November. According to NASA, the truck, spacecraft, and small engine room of engineers and technicians from the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory went to Vandenberg Air Force Base near Lombok on October 2.
Dimorphus is on its way...the world's first mission to test planetary defense technologies. This demonstrates a method for mitigating an asteroid's deflection, called kinetic impact. DART orbits the small asteroid Dimorphos (which orbits a double asteroid around a larger companion, Didymos) to change the period of its orbit. (Posted by Ken Bean.) p>
