STRELA ROCKET WITH KONDOR-E SATELLITE TO BE LAUNCHED DECEMBER 19 STRELA ROCKET WITH KONDOR-E SATELLITE TO BE LAUNCHED DECEMBER 19 - Specialists have made a decision to launch the Strela carrier rocket with the Kondor-E satellite on Friday, December 19. The launch was initially planned from the Baikonur spaceport on Thursday morning, a source at Baikonur in Kazakhstan told TASS. "The decision has been made to launch the Strela carrier rocket with the Kondor-E spacecraft on an auxiliary date - December 19, at 07:43am, Moscow time," the source said. Russia's Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) confirmed this information to TASS. "The launch will be carried out tomorrow at 07:43am, Moscow time," a Roscosmos official said.   More

EUROPEAN SOYUZ DELIVERS FOUR O3B BROADBAND SATELLITE TO ORBIT EUROPEAN SOYUZ DELIVERS FOUR O3B BROADBAND SATELLITE TO ORBIT - A Europeanized Russian Soyuz rocket on Dec. 18 successfully placed four O3b Networks high-throughput Ka-band broadband satellites into O3b's unique 8,000-kilometer-altitude orbit, giving O3b a bigger margin for error as it manages its constellation, now comprising 12 satellites. ?Launch-service provider Arianespace's chief executive, Stephane Israel, said after the launch that all parameters looked good for the satellites but that it would take several hours to determine their exact status, including the precise orbital parameters. But the spacecraft are sending signals, he said.    More

SPACEX DELAYS SPACE STATION DELIVERY UNTIL NEW YEAR SPACEX DELAYS SPACE STATION DELIVERY UNTIL NEW YEAR - Christmas won't be coming early for space station astronauts. In fact, they won't be getting their presents until the New Year. On Thursday, the SpaceX company announced it was delaying this week's planned launch of an unmanned supply capsule until January. SpaceX spokesman John Taylor said a test firing of the rocket engines earlier this week did not go precisely as planned at the Cape Canaveral launch pad. The company wants to conduct a second test on the Falcon rocket before committing to a launch, he said. Combined with the Christmas and New Year's holidays, as well as the sun's angles on the space station, the earliest the California-based company can launch is Jan. 6. The liftoff should have occurred Friday, already a few days late.   More

RUSSIA TO LAUNCH SA SPY SATELLITE - DA RUSSIA TO LAUNCH SA SPY SATELLITE - DA - The Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) had announced that a Kondor-E "earth observation satellite" would be launched on Thursday (December 18) from its Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, Democratic Alliance MP David Maynier said in a statement. "We cannot be sure, but the Kondor-E satellite, which will be launched at 6.55pm SA time, may be defence intelligence's secret Russian Kondor-E 'spy satellite', developed under 'Project Flute'." Maynier said the satellite reportedly arrived at the cosmodrome on December 1 "for pre-launch processing". Since then, it had been tested, loaded with propellant and transferred to site for final preparations.    More

SPACEX EXPECTED TO SET NEW FALCON 9 LAUNCH DATE SPACEX EXPECTED TO SET NEW FALCON 9 LAUNCH DATE - Officials will likely set a new launch date Thursday for a SpaceX-owned commercial cargo craft that was expected to take off Friday heading for the International Space Station, according to sources familiar with launch preparations. Managers were scheduled to meet to decide on a plan for the launch after SpaceX was unable to complete a preflight engine hotfire test Tuesday. The static fire test is a procedure SpaceX uses to verify the readiness of its Falcon 9 rocket and ground facilities for liftoff. The nature of the problem during Tuesday's static fire was not clear, and a SpaceX spokesperson declined to comment on the matter.   More

SOYUZ BOOSTER ROLLS OUT TO FRENCH GUIANA LAUNCH PAD SOYUZ BOOSTER ROLLS OUT TO FRENCH GUIANA LAUNCH PAD - Russian rocket technicians working in the French Guiana jungle transported a three-stage Soyuz booster to its launch pad Monday and erected it upright for liftoff Thursday with four communications satellites for O3b Networks, a company with aims to beam broadband Internet service to the developing world. The rocket rolled to the launch pad from a horizontal integration building riding on rail tracks while mounted on a specially-built transporter-erector system. Once the rocket completed the nearly half-mile rollout, the transporter-erector lifted the rocket vertical, then workers mounted the Soyuz to hold-down clamps suspended over the launch pad's flame trench.   More

INDIA TO LAUNCH 4 NAVIGATION AND 5 FOREIGN SATELLITES IN 2015, SAYS ISRO CHIEF INDIA TO LAUNCH 4 NAVIGATION AND 5 FOREIGN SATELLITES IN 2015, SAYS ISRO CHIEF - The year 2015 is going to be a busy year for the Indian space agency. It will launch five foreign satellites apart from its own four navigation satellites and a communication satellite. The Indian Space Research Organisation or ISRO will also launch a heavy communication satellite, GSAT-15, with around 40 transponders-automatic receivers and transmitters for communication and broadcast of signals using the Ariane rocket of Arianespace. "We will be completing the IRNSS (Indian Regional Satellite Navigation System) constellation by launching four more satellites and operationalise the navigation system. The geosynchronous satellite launch vehicle (GSLV) rocket is getting ready to launch GSAT-6 communication satellite," ISRO chairman K Radhakrishnan told IANS in a telephone interview from Bangalore.   More

ATLAS V LAUNCHES NROL-35 OUT OF VANDENBERG ATLAS V LAUNCHES NROL-35 OUT OF VANDENBERG - United Launch Alliance has conducted its final launch of 2014, making use of a new upper stage engine on its Atlas V rocket to deliver a National Reconnaissance Office payload into orbit. Friday's launch of NROL-35 dodged the weather and occurred at 19:19 local time (03:19 UTC on Saturday) from Space Launch Complex 3E at Vandenberg Air Force Base. Although mission details are classified, the rocket was believed to be targeting a Molniya orbit - a highly elliptical trajectory with a period of 12 hours. The orbit is named after the Soviet Union's Molniya communications satellites which were the first spacecraft to make use of the orbit. The Atlas V flew in her 541 configuration, however her Centaur upper stage sported an RL10C engine for the first time.   More

VANDENBERG LAUNCH OF POWERFUL ATLAS V ROCKET CARRYING SPY SATELLITE SCRUBBED VANDENBERG LAUNCH OF POWERFUL ATLAS V ROCKET CARRYING SPY SATELLITE SCRUBBED - The oncoming storm prompted a delay in the planned launch Thursday of a powerful rocket carrying a mysterious U.S. spy satellite from Vandenberg Air Force Base. The Atlas V 541 rocket had been expected to blast off from the Lompoc-area base at 7:17 p.m., the 30th Space Wing announced earlier this week. The launch was rescheduled for 7:13 p.m. Friday. The rocket is the same kind that launched NASA's Curiosity Mars rover in 2011, according to the system's maker, United Launch Alliance. The 20-story rocket will be the most powerful ever launched from Vandenberg AFB, SpaceFlightNow.com reported.   More
