The CubeSats for SpooQy-1 handed over to JAXA. Launch preparation is going well!
Last Updated: March 8, 2019
On February 18, 2019, one CubeSat (size is 3U) was designed and developed in Singapore by students of the National University of Singapore as SpooQy-1 was handed over to JAXA at the JAXA Tsukuba Space Center (TKSC). Loading preparations were started for their on-orbit deployment slated for next May or June. The purpose of SpooQy-1 is to continue the orbit demonstration experiment by installing the source of the polarized photon entangled photon pair on the satellite for the future satellite communication technology innovation.

The CubeSat was handed over this time based on the contract to deploy small satellites from "Kibo". It was done between JAXA and 'Singapore Space and Technology Association' (SSTA). The SpooQy-1 and BIRDS-3 were handed over to JAXA on the same day and are scheduled to be launched aboard the Cygnus 11 Spacecraft from Virginia, USA.

Грузовой корабль Cygnus назвали в честь погибшего астронавта NASA

Корабль, который отправится 17 апреля к МКС, будет носить имя Роджера Чаффи, который погиб при испытании корабля Apollo 1 27 января 1967 года

НЬЮ-ЙОРК, 26 марта. /ТАСС/. Грузовой корабль Cygnus компании Northrop Grumman, который отправится 17 апреля к Международной космической станции (МКС), назван в честь астронавта NASA Роджера Чаффи, погибшего при испытании корабля Apollo 1 27 января 1967 года.

"В этом году отмечается 50-я годовщина со дня высадки на Луну членов экипажа Apollo 11. Вспоминая о той экспедиции, мы вспоминаем и о тысячах тех людей, кто пошел на жертвы во имя успеха этой программы, - указал в заявлении, размещенном в Facebook, вице-президент Northrop Grumman Фрэнк ДеМауро. - Трое из них пожертвовали жизнью во имя того, чтобы человечество достигло Луны. Это Эд Уайт, Вирджил Гриссом и Роджер Чаффи - астронавты, трагически погибшие при наземном испытании корабля Apollo 1.

Старт грузового корабля Roger Chaffee - 11-й по счету полет грузового корабля этого типа к МКС - запланирован на 17 апреля с космодрома на острове Уоллопс (штат Вирджиния) в Атлантическом океане. Корабль будет состыкован с МКС вплоть до июля.

Традиция давать имена космическим кораблям в честь астронавтов существует в Northrop Grumman с 2014 года. Ранее кораблям уже давались имена астронавтов Дэвида Лоу, Дженис Восс, Дика Слейтона, Рика Хасбанда, Алана Пойндекстера, Джона Гленна и Юджина Сернана. Грузовой корабль, состыковавшийся с МКС в ноябре 2018 года, носил имя Джона Янга, совершившего полеты на кораблях Gemini, Apollo и на космических кораблях многоразового использования Space Shuttle.

Предстоящий полет корабля Roger Chaffee станет последним в рамках нынешнего контракта Northrop Grumman с NASA. По новому контракту, который будет выполняться с осени, компания обязана будет доставить на МКС 20 т грузов в ходе шести полетов.

Northrop Grumman Carries Technology, Scientific Investigations on Mission to Space Station

Northrop Grumman Cygnus spacecraft scheduled to liftoff on April 17 carries supplies and scientific experiments to the International Space Station. It uses a new late load capability that allows time-sensitive experiments to be loaded just 24 hours before liftoff. Previously, all cargo had to be loaded about four days prior to launch, creating challenges for some types of experiments.

The launch on the company's Antares rocket departs from Pad-0A of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport (MARS) at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility on Wallops Island, Virginia. This Cygnus mission is the 11th and final under Northrop's Commercial Resupply Services (CRS)-1 contract with NASA; a CRS-2 contract begins with a cargo launch in the fall. Resupply missions from U.S. companies ensure NASA's capability to deliver critical science research to the space station and significantly increase its ability to conduct new investigations in the only laboratory in space.

Here are some of the scientific investigations NG-11 delivers to the space station:

Models for growing increasingly complex materials

Advanced Colloids Experiment-Temperature-10 (ACE-T-10) investigates the growth, microscopic dynamics, and restructuring processes in ordered and disordered structures such as colloidal crystals, glasses, and gels.
Colloids provide ideal models for researching the fundamental principles of internal organization in such structures because their particles are small enough to engage in relevant phenomena, yet large enough for detailed study. Colloidal system interactions vary precisely with temperature and undergo a variety of transitions including crystallization and glass formation. Conducting the study in microgravity removes the effects of gravitational stresses.

Better life science research in a few drops

Bio-Analyzer, a Canadian Space Agency (CSA) instrument, enhances life sciences research capabilities on the space station. It performs on-orbit detection and quantification of cell surface molecules on a per cell basis, including blood cell counts, and assesses soluble molecule concentration in a liquid sample such as blood, saliva, or urine. Part of the Life Science Research System (LSRS), the Bio-Analyzer uses just a few drops of liquid - a finger prick versus a standard blood draw, for example - and eliminates the need for freezing and storing samples.

Analyzing aging of the arteries in astronauts

Recent research suggest links between cardiovascular health risk, carotid artery aging, bone metabolism and blood biomarkers, insulin resistance, and radiation. Data also indicate accelerated aging-like changes in many astronauts on the space station, including changes to their arteries. The Space Environment Causes Acceleration of Vascular Aging: Roles of Hypogravity, Nutrition, and Radiation (Vascular Aging) looks at these changes using artery ultrasounds, blood samples, oral glucose tolerance tests, and wearable sensors. It is one of three related Canadian experimentsstudying the effects of weightlessness on the blood vessels and heart.

Testing immune response in space

The U.S. National Laboratory sel ected 12 investigations for its Rodent Research Reference Mission-1, Applications for Spaceflight Biospecimens. Tetanus Antibody Response by B cells in Space (RR-12) examines the effects of spaceflight on the function of antibody production and immune memory. Spaceflight has a dramatic influence on human immune response, but there is little research on how that affects the body's immune system response to an actual challenge. Using a mouse model makes it possible to examine this question since the mouse immune system closely parallels that of humans.

Big buzz for new robot

A small robot takes on big jobs aboard the space station. The free-flying Astrobee can help scientists and engineers develop and test technologies for use in microgravity, give astronauts a hand with routine chores, and provide additional eyes and ears for flight controllers in Houston.

Building on the success of SPHERES, NASA's first-generation free-flyer, Astrobee, operates either in fully automated mode or under remote control from the ground. It can run longer and requires no supervision fr om the crew, freeing up more astronaut time for research. It also opens up more opportunities to experiment and test capabilities with lower risk. Astrobee is a product of the NASA Game Changing Development Program.

These are just a few of the hundreds of investigations currently happening aboard the orbiting laboratory. For daily updates, follow @ISS_ResearchSpace Station Research and Technology News or our Facebook. For opportunities to see the space station pass over your town, check out Spot the Station.

ЦитатаГрузовой корабль Cygnus после пуска к МКС проведет на орбите восемь месяцев
17:33

МОСКВА, 12 апр - РИА Новости. Американский грузовой корабль Cygnus, запуск которого к Международной космической станции планируется на 17 апреля, будет летать на орбите рекордные для этой серии кораблей восемь месяцев, сообщило в пятницу НАСА.

Всего к МКС в 2013-2018 годах были отправлены 11 грузовых кораблей Cygnus, из которых один в 2014 году не долетел до станции вследствие аварии ракеты-носителя Antares. Самый длительный полет (100 суток или более трех месяцев) совершил предыдущий корабль в период с ноября 2018 года по февраль 2019 года.

На сайте НАСА отмечается, что запуск корабля Cygnus намечается 17 апреля в 16:46 восточноамериканского времени (23:46 мск). Его ловлю манипулятором станции, управляемым астронавтом НАСА Энн МакКлейн, планируется осуществить 19 апреля в 05:30 восточноамериканского времени (12:30 мск).

НАСА также сообщило, что корабль покинет МКС 23 июля, после чего выведет на орбиту малые спутники. Он будет совершать автономный полет до декабря, затем его сведут с орбиты после восьми месяцев в космосе.

В настоящее время на борту МКС находится экипаж в составе россиян Олега Кононенко и Алексея Овчинина, американцев Энн МакКлейн, Ника Хейга и Кристины Кук, а также канадца Давида Сен-Жака.
