Rocket Report: Flight clip may slip with used Falcon Boosters, BE-4 more

This indicates that NASA has given a very valuable mission to the rockets in use.

Welcome to version 4.24 of the Rocket Report! This will be my last newsletter in November, because I'm traveling for Thanksgiving next week. But the rocket report will return in December, when there will be several major launches, none more so than the James Webb Space Telescope.

As always, readers' posts are welcome, and if you don't want to miss an issue, please sign up using the box below. (This template does not appear in the site's AMP version.) Each report will contain information about the small, medium and heavy rockets, as well as a quick look at the next three launches in the calendar.

Test Helicopter Recovery Rocket Laboratory In Some Ways, a "Love at First Sight" rocket was launched by Rocket Lab Wednesday evening, sending two more Black Sky satellites into orbit. This was the 22nd launch of the Electron rocket, and the company says it has now launched a total of 107 satellites. Like a few previous missions retested with the first stage, the electron booster caused a controlled explosion in the Pacific Ocean.

This time, with a spin...but for the first time, Rocket Lab has deployed a helicopter to the recovery area about 200 nautical miles offshore to track and monitor the landing phase in preparation for future aerial efforts. Peter Beck, founder and CEO of Rocket Lab, said the helicopter test collected useful data. “We are all excited to move on to the next stage of reuse next year; catching electrons in the air with a helicopter.” (Posted by Ken the Bean)

Pangea Aerospace is testing the flight engine. Spain-based It has successfully tested the world's first liquid methane/liquid oxygen jet engine. According to Satellite Evolution, the company has powered the DemoP1 engine "several times". The thrust of the regeneratively cooled engine is about 4,500 lbs. Previously, Pangea won an agency contract French Aerospace to study how to use its own technology in larger engines.

Print its way to profit... Solving costs. And the challenges of designing a pneumatic motor using 3D printing for the entire production process. Adrià Argemí, CEO and co-founder of the company, said: " We've unlocked space technology at a very low cost. We have been able to successfully run the same engine multiple times, demonstrating that this technology is working and "we are ready for more work and challenges". Sure, it's a good start, but there's a lot to do. (Posted by MB)

The path for a Vega-C debut in 2022 is clear. On Tuesday, the European Vega missile made its twentieth flight, bringing down three consignments of the French Ministry of the Armed Forces from French Guiana. The European Space Agency said the rocket's successful mission, first completed in 2012, will pave the way for an upgraded version of the booster - called Vega-C - to fly next year. p>

More. Bang, same dollar... The Vega-C is more powerful than the original Vega and has more value, but it retains the same startup cost. This is achieved in part by sharing the P120C engine with the Arian 6 missile (which uses the engine as an additional booster), allowing each unit to reduce costs. Vega-C will use a wide range of conveyors for different shapes and sizes of cargo from 1kg to 2,300kg. The Vega-C missile is expected to be launched as early as April. (Posted by Ken the Bin)

RFA announces download when first launched. The German-based Augsburg-based rocket launcher announced Thursday that the first flight of the RFA ONE small launcher will be a research mission for the Ukraine-based Lunar Research Service in low Earth orbit. The flight, like all missile launches, is scheduled to take off from Andovia, Norway at the end of 2022.

Demonstration mission for test launch... "We are very prepared" I am happy to sign a contract with LRS as a customer on first launch Once,” said Jorn Sporman, RFA Senior Business Manager. “We can't wait and look forward to flying customers into orbit.” According to Las Cruces Sun-News, though Virgin Galactic has begun a commercial spaceflight from the US spaceport in New Mexico. , may say McLaughlin, the executive director of US Aerospace, on Monday told New Mexico lawmakers on the Committee on Science, Technology and Communications, requested additional funding from the state.

Underwater field space sports financially ... The proposed budget for the airport was earmarked in Next fiscal year, $10.9 million, of which $6.8 million will be funded from rent, expenses and other customer revenue.Managing and researching residual government allocations, McLaughlin said a space airport without government dollars as much as possible to cut operating costs, including staff and services.

will be China's naval launch platform is ready in 2022. China is building a specially designed ship. reports that it is launching rockets from the sea into space in an effort to increase its ability to launch satellites and restore rocket stages. The 162.5-meter-high platform was built for use at China's East Coast Airport in Haiyang, Shandong Province, on the east coast. The ship is expected to be ready in 2022.


Small and medium-sized missiles... The new facility will have integrated launch support equipment and can facilitate the launch of the Long March 11 missile. According to the airport's social media channel, Akbar Commercial Smart Dragon and liquid propulsion missiles of the future. The spacecraft could also be used in the future for early-stage recovery, perhaps in the same way that SpaceX's autonomous unmanned spacecraft would provide a landing pad for Falcon 9 rockets.

Russia selects astronauts to launch Crew Dragon. According to Interfax, the Russian Cosmonaut Training Center has selected the first crew and support personnel for each seat on the Crew 5 and Crew-6 missions to the International Space Station. According to the publication, the seat swap agreement with NASA - one Soyuz seat and one Dragon seat - must be approved by the Russian government.

Not quite ordinary ... CEO Sergei Krikalov, Roscosmos for human spaceflight programs, told Interfax that the exchange verification process is proceeding "normally". However, I'm waiting for the essence of these conventions to dry out, and the Russians are actually sitting on Crew Dragons to believe it. Although the Russians have already been trained at the SpaceX plant in California, dumping the Russians into the SpaceX craft is a sensitive political issue. We'll see if everything goes "normally".

Korea develops reusable medium-range missiles. According to space news, South Korea has announced plans to build a reusable rocket with a set of 100-ton liquid-fueled propulsion engines. The Korea Aerospace Research Institute will be in charge of developing the rocket, although the timeline and other details have yet to be determined. The goal is to reduce launch costs and support the Korean navigation system in the 2000s.

Change for reuse as a priority... Work is scheduled to begin in 2022 with preliminary research on designs to begin. The announcement came as a surprise, as South Korea's next-generation missile was previously supposed to be a disposable model that is "bigger and more powerful" than the KSLV-2, a three-stage missile that was first launched last month.

Ariane's Australian release contract 6 times. According to Space News, Arianespace has signed a contract with Australian operator SingTel Optus to launch the Optus-11 communications satellite using the new Ariane 6 rocket in 2023. The Optus-11 Ku-band communications satellite is scheduled to launch in the second half of 2023 to provide services to Australia and New Zealand.

Commercial launch success… “We are happy and proud. Stephen Israel, CEO “With this sign of reassurance from SingTel Optus, for the past 21 years we have done all the launches for Optus, and now the Arian 6 will continue This long and successful record. It's a nice favor from Australia to the French government after the nuclear submarine earlier this year, otherwise an outright win of a commercial launch contract by the Ariane 6 is significant.
