The launch window for Rocket Lab's tenth flight, named 'Running Out Of Fingers,' will open 25th November NZDT and take place from Rocket Lab Launch Complex 1 on New Zealand's Māhia Peninsula.Onboard this rideshare mission are six spacecraft comprised of 5cm PocketQube microsatellites from satellite manufacturer and mission management provider Alba Orbital. The final payload on board was procured by satellite rideshare and mission management provider Spaceflight for ALE Co., Ltd (ALE), a Tokyo-based company creating microsatellites that simulate meteor particles. Electron's first stage will not be recovered from this mission, however the stage includes new hardware and sensors to inform future recovery efforts. As part of a first stage block upgrade, Electron's booster will include guidance and navigation hardware, including S-band telemetry and onboard flight computer systems, to gather data during the first stage's atmospheric re-entry. The stage is also equipped with a reaction control system to orient the booster during its re-entry descent.Rocket Lab's Founder and CEO, Peter Beck, says increasing launch frequency for small satellite operators is the key driver behind Rocket Lab's reusability program."Reaching our tenth flight within only two years of commercial operations is an incredible achievement. Thanks to the continued dedication and passion of the teams at Rocket Lab, responsive and frequent access to space is the new normal for small satellites. As we move beyond once-a-month missions towards our goal of weekly launches, recovering and reusing Electron could play a significant role in increasing launch frequency."For real-time updates on Rocket Lab activities and for upcoming mission announcements, follow Rocket Lab on Twitter @RocketLab.Payloads onboard 'Running Out Of Fingers':ATL-1: A payload from Advanced Technology of Laser (ATL) from Hungary designed to test a new thermal isolation material in space, conduct a thermal insulator material experiment, and DVB-T band spectrum monitoring.Fossasat-1: FossaSat 1 is a picosatellite developed by Spanish non-profit organization Fossa Systems.

The satellite includes multiple redundant attitude sensors and controllers, as well as a propulsion system for maneuvers.
ЦитатаSPACEFLIGHT'S THIRD RIDESHARE MISSION WITH ROCKET LAB TO LAUNCH ALE'S SPACE-RELATED ENTERTAINMENT SATELLITEBy Jodi SorensenNOVEMBER 5, 2019Man-made shooting stars to provide both entertainment and scientific understandingSeattle - Nov. 5, 2019 -- Spaceflight, the leading satellite rideshare and mission management provider, today announced it has arranged for Tokyo-based ALE to launch its entertainment and science satellite on Rocket Lab's next Electron launch. The mission, called "Running Out of Fingers" by Rocket Lab to signify its tenth mission, represents Spaceflight's third launch with Rocket Lab this year. It follows the launch of seven spacecraft on its inaugural "Make it Rain" mission in June and three on the "Look Ma No Hands" mission in August.Like the previous missions, Spaceflight managed the launch capacity procurement, integration, and mission management services for the rideshare spacecraft. The Electron, carrying the ALE satellite, will lift-off from Rocket Lab's Launch Complex 1 at the southern tip of Mahia Peninsula, on the east coast of New Zealand's North Island. The launch window opens on 25th November NZDT."Our experience offering end-to-end launch services across multiple launch vehicles continues to be highly valued by organizations -- regardless if they're a newer customer like ALE, or an experienced constellation developer," said Curt Blake, CEO and president of Spaceflight. "Our expertise and long-standing relationships provide reliability, flexibility, and the confidence that we'll get customers to space as efficiently as possible. We're really looking forward to taking ALE on our third Electron launch this year."ALE's Sky Canvas, the world's first man-made shooting star project, will deploy to a 400km circular Sun Synchronous orbit, which is beneath the International Space Station. The company's satellite will create man-made shooting stars by safely releasing particles, precisely controlling the reentry location, date, and timing. When the particles re-enter the Earth's atmosphere, they fully burn up, creating the appearance of shooting stars on the ground.In addition to the entertainment factor, the Sky Canvas project will also study the path and mechanics of shooting star particles during re-entry from the upper atmosphere. The data collected in the mesosphere will be helpful in the aerospace industry to help predict the path of satellites and artificial objects as well as contributing to scientific understanding in several technology fields including meteorology and the study of climate change."This launch gets us much closer to realizing the world's first man-made shooting star," said Lena Okajima, CEO of ALE. "We really appreciate Spaceflight`s support and attention to our mission and we're honored to take this big step with them."Following this launch, Spaceflight will have launched 11 spacecraft on the Electron and has plans to continue partnering with the launch vehicle provider in 2020. Spaceflight has completed five missions already this year, with another five planned in 2019. Other noteworthy missions from the last year include Spaceflight's GTO-1, which deployed the first commercial lunar lander aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9, and SSO-A, the company's historic dedicated rideshare mission, successfully launched 64 unique smallsats, making it the single largest deployment of satellites from a U.S.-based launch vehicle....###
ЦитатаNEXT UP: ALE'S SKY CANVAS MISSIONBy Jodi SorensenNOVEMBER 6, 2019Our next Rocket Lab mission (our third with them this year) is a very exciting one. We're launching ALE's Sky Canvas, the world's first man-made shooting star project that also has a scientific research component. It's with these first-of-their-kind missions that we bring all our experience to bear for our customers. This type of mission was years in the making and demonstrates the unique benefits of rideshare.The Tokyo-based ALE spacecraft, named ALE-2, will create man-made shooting stars by safely releasing particles that will re-enter the Earth's atmosphere, burning up and creating the appearance of shooting stars. The mission will also study the path and mechanics of shooting star particles during re-entry fr om the upper atmosphere. The data collected will help predict the path of satellites and artificial objects as well as contributing to scientific understanding in several technology fields including meteorology and the study of climate change.This mission took years of analysis and rigorous review. Josh Rodenbaugh, ALE's launch campaign manager, worked closely with the Spaceflight team as a mission of this type had never been done before. ALE had already worked through the Japanese Space Agency who had conducted a rigorous review for the launch of ALE-1 earlier this year. ALE also met with other countries' space agencies and even astronomers to work through any concerns around this unique mission. Spaceflight helped the company get the necessary permits through the New Zealand Space Agency, and worked with Rocket Lab to ensure a smooth integration process (which will begin in the next week or so). We are always happy to advocate for our customers and support new uses for satellites - opening up access to space for new business models is part of our corporate mission.Spaceflight began working with ALE more than three years ago. They were originally slated to launch on an earlier mission ... and then were rescheduled on a later mission. When they had readied their spacecraft, we were able to re-manifest them on an earlier launch opportunity with Rocket Lab. This mission, slated for late November, is named "RL-2" by Spaceflight and "Running Out of Fingers" by Rocket Lab as a nod to their tenth flight.Tony Frego, the Spaceflight Mission Director who has been working with ALE since the beginning, commented, "For me, this is a hugely significant mission. I'm always looking forward to seeing our customers be successful, but ALE is one of those unique spacecraft, wh ere I'll actually get to see the success -- the meteors -- with my own eyes."
