Photon Pathstone will demonstrate power management, thermal control, and attitude control subsystems, as well as newly-integrated technologies including deep-space radio capability, an upgraded RCS (reaction control system) for precision pointing in space, and sun sensors and star trackers. Pathstone is the second Photon spacecraft to be deployed to orbit, following the launch of Photon First Light in August 2020./quote]
ЦитатаLong Beach, California. 25 March 2021 - Rocket Lab, a global leader in launch and space systems, has today announced it will launch multiple missions to low Earth orbit for BlackSky, a leading provider of real-time geospatial intelligence and global monitoring services. The multi-launch agreement with launch services provider Spaceflight Inc., who will manage the integration and launch services for BlackSky, includes the launch of nine BlackSky satellites across five Electron missions this year. The deal represents the largest number of satellites BlackSky has committed to a single launch provider to date and includes the successful launch of BlackSky's latest spacecraft on Rocket Lab's "They Go Up So Fast" rideshare mission earlier this week. Eight of BlackSky's 130 kg class satellites will be launched across four dedicated missions on Rocket Lab's Electron launch vehicle throughout 2021 in a demonstration of rapidly-acquired launch services. This responsive launch capability supports the aggressive scaling of BlackSky's satellite constellation to meet the demand for real-time global monitoring and analysis services for public and private organizations. These satellites will join three existing BlackSky satellites launched by Rocket Lab's Electron launch vehicle across 2019 and on the most recent mission this week. The agreement also includes options for an additional two dedicated missions on Electron in Q4 2021. Скрытый текст: Rocket Lab Founder and CEO, Peter Beck, says Electron's dedicated launch service provides the reliability and speed to space that is critical for companies like BlackSky building out their satellite constellations and growing their businesses. "We're thrilled to be providing dedicated and reliable access to orbit for Spaceflight and its customer BlackSky. Electron puts our customers in control of their launch schedule and orbital deployment parameters, giving them more certainty in crucial business growth phases," said Mr. Beck. "By securing streamlined space access on Electron, BlackSky can focus on what matters most to their mission - providing real-time, actionable data to decision makers on the ground when they need it most." Brian E. O'Toole, CEO of BlackSky, said: "Rocket Lab simplifies the path to orbit. Dedicated launch on Electron is the key enabler for us to rapidly develop our constellation on our own terms which is hugely important in unlocking more analytic and data-driven opportunities for our customers." The BlackSky satellites join a busy launch manifest for Rocket Lab in 2021 which includes a scheduled dedicated mission for the U.S. Space Force, a mission to the Moon for NASA, and launches for a range of commercial customers. Rocket Lab's Electron launch vehicle is the second most frequently launched U.S. rocket annually since 2019, having deployed more than 100 satellites to space for commercial and government customers across 17 orbital missions. Electron has become a workhorse launch vehicle for the small satellite industry and provides uniquely targeted access to orbit for constellation satellites. The launch agreement follows on from a March 1 announcement that Rocket Lab USA, Inc. ("Rocket Lab") and Vector Acquisition Corporation (Nasdaq: VACQ) ("Vector"), a special purpose acquisition company backed by leading technology investor Vector Capital, have entered into a definitive merger agreement that will result in Rocket Lab becoming a publicly traded company. The transaction is estimated to be completed in Q2 2021 and, at that time, Vector will change its name to Rocket Lab USA, Inc. and the combined company is expected to trade under the Nasdaq ticker symbol RKLB.
ЦитатаScheduled for launch in May 2021 from Launch Complex 1 in New Zealand, the 'Running Out of Toes', mission will be Rocket Lab's 20th Electron launch overall and the second of three planned ocean splashdown recovery missions. The mission will see Electron deploy two Earth-observation satellites for BlackSky's global monitoring constellation. While Electron's second stage delivers the satellites to orbit, Electron's first stage will undertake a series of complex maneuvers designed to enable the stage to survive the extreme heat and forces of atmospheric re-entry on the way back to Earth.
Цитата: undefinedThe project, based in Finland, is called the WISA WOODSAT, and it has taken a bit of an indirect route to orbit. The design is based on a CubeSat format called Kitsat, which is intended for student projects. If the goal is simply to expose students to what it takes to make a compact satellite (the design is a 10 cm/side cube), the satellite can be built using cheap, easy-to-obtain hardware. But it can also be made using space-rated materials and sent to orbit....Plans are to place the satellite in a polar orbit using a Rocketlab launch vehicle. The hope is to send it to space before the year is over.

Цитата15 мая в 14:11 по киевскому времени с новозеландской стартовой площадки запустили ракету Electron компании Rocket Lab. Отработавшую первую ступень планировали вернуть на Землю целой - так, как это давно делает SpaceX, но по-другому: ее должны были спустить в океан на парашюте, а затем выловить и погрузить на борт судна ORCA. Однако миссия закончилась неудачей.Через 2 минуты 33 секунды после старта на высоте около 80 км первая и вторая ступени Electron разделились. На этой стадии начались проблемы.Насколько можно судить по видео, двигатель второй ступени заработал, но тут же погас. Вскоре после этого оператор сообщил о потере телеметрии. Спустя несколько минут компания прервала трансляцию из центра управления полетом.Что с первой ступенью, пока неясно.Смотрите видео: "Смотреть со звуком". Разделение ступеней Еlectron в полетеПо задумке, система управления должна была переориентировать первую ступень на 180°и разместить ее под идеальным углом для повторного входа в атмосферу, чтобы выдержать пиковую температуру в 2400°С и нагрузки на скорости, в восемь раз превышающей скорость звука. На 7 минуте 20 секунде после старта на падающую ступень ожидалась максимальная динамическая нагрузка.Через 16 секунд после этого (и снижения до скорости <2 Мах) ее должен был начать замедлять вытяжной парашют. На 8 минуте 44 секунде планировалось раскрытие основного парашюта для контролируемого приводнения в определенную точку в Тихом океане - на 12 минуте 16 секунде после старта.Вся миссия была рассчитана на 55 минут 33 секунды. Спутники должны были вывести на круговую солнечно-синхронную орбиту высотой 420 км с наклонением 50°.Это был юбилейный 20-й запуск частной американо-новозеландской компании, основанной Питером Беком. Прошлой осенью в миссии Return Тo Sender ступень Electron уже вернули подобным образом из космоса. На этот раз инженеры надеялись осуществить процедуру еще более гладко, с учетом полученной тогда информации.На полуострове Махия в момент старта был поздний вечер.
Цитата: undefinedLong Beach, California. June 15, 2021. Rocket Lab, a global leader in dedicated launch and space systems, has been awarded a contract to design two Photon spacecraft for a scientific mission to Mars.The Escape and Plasma Acceleration and Dynamics Explorers (ESCAPADE) mission, led by Rob Lillis at the University of California, Berkeley Space Sciences Laboratory, is a twin-spacecraft science mission that will orbit two spacecraft around Mars to understand the structure, composition, variability, and dynamics of Mars' unique hybrid magnetosphere. The mission will leverage its unique dual viewpoint on the Mars environment to explore how the solar wind strips atmosphere away from Mars to better understand how its climate has changed over time.ESCAPADE is being developed under NASA's Small Innovative Missions for Planetary Exploration (SIMPLEx) program in the Science Mission Directorate (SMD). The two spacecraft are planned for launch in 2024 to Mars ridesharing aboard a NASA-provided commercial launch vehicle.Following an 11-month interplanetary cruise, the two Photons (named Blue and Gold) will insert themselves into elliptical orbits around Mars and conduct a 1-year primary science mission. ESCAPADE's Photons will use the flight-proven Curie propulsion system to perform Mars orbit insertion and will be equipped with other subsystems that enable planetary science, including star trackers and reaction wheels for precision pointing from Rocket Lab's Sinclair Interplanetary team, as well as ranging transceivers for deep space navigation.
