    Blue Origin : New Shepard Mission 9 Rocket Launch & Landing
    space googlevesaire
    Scheduled for Jul 18, 2018
    PAYLOAD MANIFEST ON MISSION 9
    An awesome feature of New Shepard is its modular interior design. While in the future it will feature six seats to fly people, we’re already flying science and education experiments for microgravity research.

    On Mission 9, we welcome our third round of payload customers from commercial companies, universities and space agencies. They will share the cabin with Blue Origin’s Mannequin Skywalker for their flight to space.

    Below is a selection of customers slated to fly on Mission 9:

    Schmitt Space Communicator Xperimental (SC1-x)
    Solstar (Santa Fe, NM), developed with private funding and with support from NASA’s Flight Opportunities Program

    On New Shepard Mission 8, Solstar demonstrated the first commercial WiFi in space. On this reflight, they will take advantage of the Crew Capsule’s high altitude escape and continue testing WiFi access throughout the flight.

    GAGa (Granular Anisotropic Gases)
    Otto-von-Guericke University (Magdeburg, Germany) with end-to-end service provider OLYMPIASPACE
    (Darmstadt, Germany) and funding from German space agency, DLR

    The GAGa payload investigates the statistics of granular gases, dilute collections of solid grains that interact by random collisions. Data from GAGa on New Shepard Mission 9 will help validate existing theoretical models and contribute to understanding the dynamics of related systems like avalanches and cosmic dust clouds.

    Suborbital Flight Experiment Monitor-2 (SFEM-2)
    NASA Johnson Space Center (Houston, TX)

    SFEM-2 was first flown on Mission 8 of New Shepard, and will collect additional data on Mission 9. The experiment will record vehicle conditions including cabin pressure, temperature, CO2, acoustic conditions, and acceleration.

    Condensed Droplet Experiment for NASA in Sub-Orbital Spaceflight (ConDENSS)
    Purdue University (West Lafayette, IN), funded through NASA Flight Opportunities Program

    ConDENSS will examine the behavior of small droplets of water in order to support the development of small and efficient heat transfer systems for spaceflight. These systems, called phase change heat transfer systems, provide more uniform surface temperatures and higher power capacities.

    APL Electromagnetic Field Experiment
    Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, funded through NASA Flight Opportunities Program

    This experiment marks the first flight of the JANUS 2.1 platform with sensors to monitor magnetic fields and ambient pressure inside the vehicle. Previous versions of JANUS were flown on New Shepard Missions 6 and 7.

    Vibration Isolation Platform Data Logger
    Controlled Dynamics, funded through NASA Flight Opportunities Program

    VIP DL is a technology demo for an active stabilization platform that aims to allow the most sensitive payloads flying on New Shepard to be isolated from ambient vibrations, allowing for even higher precision microgravity studies.

    Blue Origin “Fly My Stuff”
    A special addition to the Mission 9 payload manifest is a suite of payloads from Blue Origin employees as a part of our internal “Fly My Stuff” program.

    NASA | Parker Solar Probe: It's Surprisingly Hard to Go to the Sun
    NASA
    Published on Aug 9, 2018
    The Parker Solar Probe will be the first-ever mission to "touch" the Sun, traveling directly into the Sun's atmosphere about 4 million miles from the surface.
    Read the story: https://go.nasa.gov/2KEExYZ NASA launch schedule: https://go.nasa.gov/2JfklMB

    The Sun contains 99.8 of the mass in our solar system. Its gravitational pull is what keeps everything here, from tiny Mercury to the gas giants to the Oort Cloud, 186 billion miles away.

    But even though the Sun has such a powerful pull, it's surprisingly hard to actually go to the Sun: It takes 55 times more energy to go to the Sun than it does to go to Mars. Why is it so difficult? The answer lies in the same fact that keeps Earth from plunging into the Sun: Our planet is traveling very fast - about 67,000 miles per hour - almost entirely sideways relative to the Sun. The only way to get to the Sun is to cancel that sideways motion.

    Since Parker Solar Probe will skim through the Sun's atmosphere, it only needs to drop 53,000 miles per hour of sideways motion to reach its destination, but that's no easy feat. In addition to using a powerful rocket, the Delta IV Heavy, Parker Solar Probe will perform seven Venus gravity assists over its seven-year mission to shed sideways speed into Venus' well of orbital energy. These gravity assists will draw Parker Solar Probe's orbit closer to the Sun for a record approach of just 3.83 million miles from the Sun's visible surface on the final orbits.

    Though it's shedding sideways speed to get closer to the Sun, Parker Solar Probe will pick up overall speed, bolstered by Sun's extreme gravity - so it will also break the record for the fastest-ever human-made objects, clocking in at 430,000 miles per hour on its final orbits.

    NASA launches solar probe to go closer to sun than ever before

    CBS This Morning
    Published on Aug 10, 2018
    In less than 24 hours, NASA will launch a historic mission, sending a spacecraft closer to the sun than ever before. The Parker Solar Probe will embark on a nearly seven-year venture, becoming the first spacecraft to have a direct encounter with a star. The $1.5 billion mission will revolutionize our understanding of the sun. Omar Villafranca reports.

    Parker Solar Probe - Pre-launch Briefing
    Space Videos
    Published on Jul 21, 2018
    Pre-launch Science Briefing for Parker Solar Probe
    Early on an August morning, the sky near Cape Canaveral, Florida, will light up with the launch of Parker Solar Probe. No earlier than Aug. 6, 2018, a United Launch Alliance Delta IV Heavy will thunder to space carrying the car-sized spacecraft, which will study the Sun closer than any human-made object ever has.

    On July 20, 2018, Nicky Fox, Parker Solar Probe's project scientist at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab in Laurel, Maryland, and Alex Young, associate director for science in the Heliophysics Science Division at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, introduced Parker Solar Probe's science goals and the technology behind them at a televised press conference from NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida.

    "We've been studying the Sun for decades, and now we're finally going to go where the action is," said Young.

    A United Launch Alliance to Launch Delta IV Heavy Rocket

    SPACE & UNIVERSE (Official)
    Started streaming 51 minutes ago
    A United Launch Alliance Delta IV Heavy rocket will launch NASA's Parker Solar Probe from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida at 3:33-4:38 a.m. EDT (0733-0838 GMT)
    Liftoff window begins at 2:33 a.m. EST

    Parker Solar Probe is humanity’s first mission to the sun. After launch, it will orbit directly through the solar atmosphere – the corona – closer to the surface than any human-made object has ever gone. While facing brutal heat and radiation, the mission will reveal fundamental science behind what drives the solar wind, the constant outpouring of material from the sun that shapes planetary atmospheres and affects space weather near Earth.

    Parker Solar Probe is part of NASA’s Living With a Star Program to explore aspects of the connected sun-Earth system that directly affect life and society.

    NASA's Parker Solar Probe mission, which is scheduled to launch today, will come within 3.9 million miles (6.2 million kilometers) of the sun — seven times closer than any other spacecraft ever has.

    The specially shielded Parker Solar Probe will have to endure temperatures up to 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit (1,370 degrees Celsius) and solar radiation intensities 475 times higher than we're used to here on Earth.

    If all goes according to plan, the Parker Solar Probe will zoom close to the sun 24 times between 2018 and 2025, gathering a variety of data about the sun's structure and magnetic and electric fields, as well as the energetic particles cruising near and away from Earth's star. This information could help researchers solve two longstanding mysteries: How the solar wind is accelerated and why the sun's outer atmosphere, or corona, is so much hotter than the solar surface, NASA officials have said.

    Parker Solar Probe Mission Launches to Touch the Sun
    NASA
    Published on Aug 12, 2018
    NASA’s Parker Solar Probe mission launched Aug. 11 from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. The mission will be the first to fly directly through the Sun’s corona – the hazardous region of intense heat and solar radiation in the Sun’s atmosphere that is visible during an eclipse. It will gather data that could help answer questions about solar physics that have puzzled scientists for decades. Gathering information about fundamental processes near the Sun can help improve our understanding of how our solar system’s star changes the space environment, where space weather can affect astronauts, interfere with satellite orbits, or damage spacecraft electronics.
