    SAOCOM 1A Mission
    SpaceX
    Streamed live 5 hours ago
    SpaceX is targeting Sunday, October 7 for the launch of the SAOCOM 1A satellite from Space Launch Complex 4E (SLC-4E) at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

    The instantaneous launch opportunity is on Sunday, October 7 at 7:21 p.m. PDT, or Monday, October 8 at 2:21 UTC, and the satellite will be deployed about 12 minutes after launch.

    A backup instantaneous launch opportunity is available on Thursday, October 11 at 7:21 p.m. PDT, or Friday, October 12 at 2:21 UTC.

    Following stage separation, Falcon 9’s first stage will return to land at SpaceX’s Landing Zone 4 (LZ-4) at Vandenberg Air Force Base. This is SpaceX’s first attempt at a land landing on the West Coast. LZ-4 is built on the former site of Space Launch Complex 4W, from which Titan rockets were previously launched.

    The first video is an Arianespace English feed collection, a larger segment starts @ 56:30, with smaller segments showing only the launch from the beginning of the recording.

    Arianespace Flight VA245 – BepiColombo - English
    arianespace
    Streamed live on Oct 20, 2018
    For its seventh launch of the year, Arianespace will use an Ariane 5 ECA from the Guiana Space Center (CSG) to send the BepiColombo spacecraft on its way to the solar system’s smallest and least-explored terrestrial planet: Mercury.
    The BepiColombo mission will be carried out jointly by the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA).

    After launching the successful Rosetta mission in 2004, Arianespace once again helps unlock mysteries of deep space.

    Liftoff is planned on Friday, October 19, 2018 at exactly:
    - 09:45:28 p.m. Washington, D.C. time
    - 10:45:28 p.m. Kourou, French Guiana time
    - 01:45:28 Universal Time (UTC) on Saturday, October 20, 2018
    - 03:45:28 a.m. Paris time on Saturday, October 20, 2018
    - 10:45:28 a.m. Tokyo time on Saturday, October 20, 2018

    Follow the launch live at http://www.arianespace.com and on http://www.youtube.com/arianespace

    Since its creation in 1980 as the world's first commercial space transportation company, Arianespace has led the launch services industry with many operational firsts and numerous record-setting missions.

    Why Does it take BepiColombo 7 Years To Get To Mercury?
    Scott Manley
    Published on Oct 20, 2018
    And other questions people have been asking me about this european space agency mission. It'll take 7 years to get to Mercury and then reach a lower orbit than MESSENGER with more payload.

    Animation visualising BepiColombo’s 7.2 year journey to Mercury. This animation is based on a launch date of 5 October, marking the start of the launch window in October 2018. It illustrates the gravity assist flybys that the spacecraft will make at Earth, Venus and Mercury before arriving at Mercury in December 2025.

    MAPS OAPD
    Published on Nov 2, 2017
    In October 2018 the European Space Agency will launch the BepiColombo space mission that will explore Mercury, the closest planet to the Sun. The mission consists of two modules, planetary (MPO) realized in Europe (ESA) and magnetospheric (MMO) in Japan (JAXA). The images and the instruments represented are real, coming from the CAD files of Airbus, the european company that integrated the satellite. At the end that will be a bird fly on the Mercury surface. OAPD http://maps.oapd.inaf.it/


    The mission is a joint collaboration between Japan and Europe, here is an 11 year old presentation by Jaxa about the mission (some English notations, Japanese audio)

    I had an amazing 80 minute sit down interview with the one and only Peter Beck, the founder and CEO of Rocket Lab. This man is brilliant and it was so much fun to pick his brain.


    Exclusive look inside the world's newest rocket factory!

    Published on Oct 21, 2018
    Rocket Lab may have just dropped a nuke on the small sat launch market by secretly opening up an enormous factory in Auckland, New Zealand. With only about 72 hours notice, I wound up flying to New Zealand to get an exclusive look at their new 7,500 sq/m (80,700 sq/ft) factory that is streamlined for an impressive production rate.

    NASA’s InSight spacecraft just launched to Mars. Equipped with cutting-edge instruments to study Mars’ crust, mantle, and core, InSight will provide a never-before-seen look at the red planet’s inner workings. The Verge’s Loren Grush visited Vandenberg Air Force Base for the launch, which marks the beginning of InSight’s six-month journey to Mars.


    Why Was Mars Insight Launched From California?
    Scott Manley
    Published on May 7, 2018
    Mars Insight was the first Mars mission launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, while previous Mars missions have generally launched from Florida. The reason this is possible is because the original mission design required a higher than usual inclination parking orbit. This reduced the advantage which Florida usually gets from the rotation of the earth, which meant that the same launch vehicle design could achieve the trajectory from either location. This lead the designers to go with California because it has less rocket activity. Includes animations from NASA, Kerbal Space Program and Universe Sandbox

    An unpiloted Northrop Grumman Cygnus cargo ship launched from the Wallops Flight Facility, Virginia Nov. 17, bound for a delivery run to the International Space Station with several tons of supplies and scientific experiments. The “SS John Young”, named after the iconic NASA astronaut who died in January, lifted from Pad 0A at Wallops atop an Antares rocket on a three-day journey to reach the station where it will be robotically captured and installed on the Earth-facing port of the Unity module for a three-month stay.
