    It's a regular thing now. That's why I created the thread, to remind us it's going on all the time, and there are outlets that cover it on a regular basis, even if the mainstream media don't cover it. :)

    Vita: Launch, docking & hatch opening

    Published on Jul 31, 2017
    ESA astronaut Paolo Nespoli, NASA astronaut Randy Bresnik and Roscosmos commander Sergey Ryazansky launched to the International Space Station from Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on 28 July 2017.
    They docked with the Station in the early hours of 29 July after a six-hour trip in their Soyuz MS-05 spacecraft. After orbiting Earth four times to catch up to the International Space Station, the car-sized spacecraft arrived at the Station six hours after launch.

    This video includes highlights of their prelaunch preparations, liftoff, docking and ingress into the Space Station

    Paolo's Vita mission is the tenth long-duration mission for an ESA astronaut and the third mission to the Station for Paolo Nespoli.

    Vita stands for Vitality, Innovation, Technology and Ability and was chosen by Italy’s ASI space agency, which is providing the mission through a barter agreement with NASA.

    In Italian, “vita” means “life”, reflecting the experiments that Paolo will run and the philosophical notion of living in outer space – one of the most inhospitable places for humans.

    Paolo’s extensive scientific programme includes experiments in biology, human physiology as well as space environment monitoring, materials science and technology demonstrations.

    When not performing science, Paolo will work with his colleagues to maintain the Space Station and keep the orbital outpost running smoothly for the crew of six.

    Follow Paolo and his mission via http://paolonespoli.esa.int and the mission blog for updates http://blogs.esa.int/vita

    The View from Mission Operations
    Streamed live 4 hours ago
    Space Telescope Public Lecture Series

    Topic: The View from Mission Operations

    Speaker: Courtney McManus, Space Telescope Science Institute

    Date: Tuesday, August 1, 2017 at 8 PM

    Place: Space Telescope Science Institute Auditorium

    Price: Free admission and free parking

    Phone: 410-338-4700

    Internet: http://hubblesite.org/about_us/public-talks.shtml

    Ever wonder what it takes for a space mission to succeed?
    The remarkable discoveries from Hubble and other space
    telescopes are possible only if there is a capable and
    effective command and control infrastructure. Join us for
    a view into who and what it takes on the ground to operate
    spacecraft from astronomical observatories to the
    International Space Station. What was true before is still
    true today: failure is not an option!

    Lectures on a diverse selection of cosmic topics are held
    the first Tuesday of every month at 8 PM in the STScI
    Auditorium, located at 3700 San Martin Drive on the Homewood
    campus of Johns Hopkins University. Admission is free and
    free parking is available in the lot across the street.

    This lecture will be webcast live. The recorded webcast will
    also be available for viewing online the following day. To
    view the webcast, you may need to download and install
    software. See the web site listed below in advance for
    details.

    Further information and directions are available by
    calling 410-338-4700 or on the internet at: http://hubblesite.org/about_us/public-talks.shtml

    Next Month: Tuesday, September 5, 2017 Active Luminous Blue Variables in the Large Magellanic Cloud Nolan Walborn, Space Telescope Science Institute

    Perfect 10: the lightweight Vega orbits OPTSAT-3000 and Venµs on a milestone success


    Arianespace Flight VV10 / OPTSAT-3000 and Venµs


    (LIVE) LAUNCH: Arianespace Flight VV10 / OPTSAT-3000 and Venµs

    Streamed live 9 hours ago
    Launch Scheduled for 09:58:33 p.m., ET / 01:58:33 Universal Time (UTC) / 02:58:33 UK

    FLIGHT VV10: VEGA TO LAUNCH EARTH
    OBSERVATION SATELLITES FOR ITALY,
    FRANCE AND ISRAEL

    For its eighth launch of the year, and the 10th Vega mission since this launcher began its career at the Guiana Space Center in 2012,
    Arianespace will orbit OPTSAT-3000 and Venµs - two Earth
    observation satellites for civil and military applications.
    This marks the seventh Earth observation mission for Vega, a light
    launcher now in full commercial operation, whose versatility has
    been largely proven during its nine previous missions - all successful.

    OPTSAT-3000
    OPTSAT-3000 is an Earth observation program for the Italian Ministry of Defense. It comprises a highresolution
    optical satellite and a ground segment for in-orbit control, mission planning and the
    acquisition and processing of images.
    OPTSAT-3000 will allow national defense entities to acquire and use high-resolution images from any part of the globe.
    The OPTSAT-3000 system is supplied by the prime contractor Telespazio, a joint venture between Leonardo (67%) and Thales (33%). Telespazio is responsible for the entire system, including the satellite, ground segment, launch and early orbital operations, preparation and execution of operations and logistics, in-orbit tests and commissioning.
    The satellite and ground control systems were built by Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), chosen by the Italian Ministry of Defense on the basis of an inter-governmental agreement between Italy and Israel. OHB Italia is responsible for the launch services and related engineering support.
    The OPTSAT-3000 system will be inter-operable with Italy’s second-generation COSMO-SkyMed radar satellites. This will give the Italian Defense Ministry access to state-of-the-art technology, and ensure maximum operational capabilities because of the combined optical and radar data offered by the
    two systems.

    Movies have made it so I never expect that initial acceleration for rockets, even though I should know better.
