ISRO NAVIGATION SATELLITE IN ORBIT ISRO NAVIGATION SATELLITE IN ORBIT - India on Saturday demonstrated its ability to establish an independent regional navigation satellite system, as ISRO's PSLV C-27 successfully launched Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System (IRNSS) 1-D satellite into the intended orbit. "We will now be able to make use of our receivers to locate ourselves independently," ISRO Chairman K.S. Kiran Kumar said. This is the first launch this year and the first under his chairmanship. While the ambit of the U.S. GPS was global, the IRNSS was meant for regional coverage, he said, replying to a query. "The globe comes later, the country comes first." IRNSS 1-D is the fourth of the series of seven satellites, which would form ISRO's IRNSS.    More

SOYUZ SPACECRAFT DOCKS AT ISS FOR YEAR-LONG MISSION SOYUZ SPACECRAFT DOCKS AT ISS FOR YEAR-LONG MISSION - A Russian Soyuz spacecraft with three crew on board successfully docked at the International Space Station Saturday after blasting off from Kazakhstan, NASA said, launching a year-long mission on the orbiting outpost. The Soyuz-TMA16M spacecraft's crew included a US astronaut and a Russian cosmonaut who will be the first to spend an entire year on the ISS. The successful docking occurred after the Soyuz took off without a glitch from the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan at 22:42 pm (1942 GMT) Friday, Russian space agency officials said earlier.   More

SOYUZ CARRIER WITH TWO GALILEO SATELLITES LAUNCHED FROM KOUROU SPACEPORT SOYUZ CARRIER WITH TWO GALILEO SATELLITES LAUNCHED FROM KOUROU SPACEPORT - Russian carrier rocket Soyuz-ST with two EU satellites aboard was successfully launched from Kourou space centre in French Guyana on Saturday, Russian Federal Space Agency Roscosmos told RIA Novosti. "The launch took place at 12.46 p.m. [9:45 GMT]," Roscosmos spokesperson said. The satellites are sent to the orbit under the EU Galileo program, which aims to create a global satellite navigation system alongside existing US Global Positioning System (GPS) and Russian Glonass.    More

SOYUZ ROCKET LAUNCHES YEARLONG SPACE STATION CREW SOYUZ ROCKET LAUNCHES YEARLONG SPACE STATION CREW - Two Russian cosmonauts and one American astronaut successfully departed Earth on Friday, propelled by a Soyuz rocket launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. They're headed for the International Space Station. As of 4:00 p.m. EST, the rocket had achieved third-stage separation and the Soyuz TMA-16M spacecraft had entered Low Earth orbit. If all goes as planned, the craft will dock onto the space station late Friday night (early Saturday morning in Kazakhstan).    More

COUNTDOWN BEGINS FOR LAUNCH OF ISRO'S NAVIGATION SATELLITE IRNSS-1D COUNTDOWN BEGINS FOR LAUNCH OF ISRO'S NAVIGATION SATELLITE IRNSS-1D - Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on Thursday announced the countdown for the launch of India's fourth navigation satellite IRNSS-1D began at 5.49 am. ISRO announced on its Facebook page "The 59-and-half hour count down for PSLV-C27/IRNSS-1D Mission began in the Sriharikota rocket port in Andhra Pradesh". The rocket is expected to blast off at 5.19 p.m. on March 28 to put into orbit the 1,425 kg IRNSS-1D satellite, which was originally scheduled for launch on March 9, but was deferred after an anomaly was found in one of the telemetry transmitters.   More

DELTA 4 ROCKET BOOSTS NEW GPS SATELLITE INTO ORBIT DELTA 4 ROCKET BOOSTS NEW GPS SATELLITE INTO ORBIT - A United Launch Alliance Delta 4 rocket thundered away from Cape Canaveral Wednesday, boosting the ninth in a series of upgraded Global Positioning System navigation satellites into orbit. The 206-foot-tall rocket's hydrogen-fueled main engine throttled up with a rush of fire at 2:36 p.m. EDT (GMT-4), followed a moment later by ignition of two solid-fuel strap-on boosters. Generating 1.1 million pounds of thrust, the Delta 4 quickly climbed away through low fog over the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station and arced away to the northeast over the Atlantic Ocean. The climb out of the dense lower atmosphere went smoothly and 15 minutes after liftoff, the rocket's second stage engine shut down as planned to put the satellite payload into an initial parking orbit.   More

RUSSIA'S DNEPR ROCKET LAUNCHES KOMPSAT-3A MISSION RUSSIA'S DNEPR ROCKET LAUNCHES KOMPSAT-3A MISSION - International Space Company (ISC) Kosmotras has launched its Russian Dnepr rocket from Dombarovsky on Wednesday, carrying the Kompsat-3A satellite for the Korea Aerospace Research Institute (KARI). The launch - which nearly fell foul of a proposed shutdown of Dnepr utilization - was reported to be on schedule at 22:08 UTC. Earlier in the year, Russian media reported ongoing evaluations within the Russian space industry threatened the shutdown of the Dnepr rocket.   More

H-2A ROCKET ACHIEVES FOURTH LAUNCH IN SIX MONTHS H-2A ROCKET ACHIEVES FOURTH LAUNCH IN SIX MONTHS - A new surveillance satellite equipped with a high-resolution optical camera blasted into space aboard a Japanese H-2A rocket Thursday, joining a fleet of spy stations in orbit to track military activity in North Korea and other locations around the world. Owned and operated by the Japanese government, the reconnaissance spacecraft lifted off at 0121 GMT Thursday (9:21 p.m. EDT Wednesday) from the picturesque Tanegashima Space Center situated on an island in southwestern Japan, where the launch occurred at 10:21 a.m. local time. The satellite rocketed into space aboard Japan's H-2A rocket, which steered south from Tanegashima to deploy its payload into polar orbit. The launcher aimed to release the satellite in an orbit about 300 miles above Earth.   More

SURVEILLANCE SATELLITE ON TRACK FOR BLASTOFF FROM JAPAN SURVEILLANCE SATELLITE ON TRACK FOR BLASTOFF FROM JAPAN - A Japanese H-2A rocket is set for launch Thursday with a high-resolution imaging satellite to record views of strategic sites for the country's intelligence agencies. The two-stage hydrogen-fueled rocket has a 13-minute window to blast off opening at 0121 GMT Thursday (9:21 p.m. EDT Wednesday). The H-2A will launch from the Tanegashima Space Center in southwestern Japan, where liftoff is set for 10:21 a.m. local time. The launcher is scheduled to roll out from the space center's Vehicle Assembly Building to the launch pad about 12 hours before liftoff.   More

US MILITARY SATELLITE EXPLOSION NO THREAT TO EUROPEAN SPACE MISSIONS US MILITARY SATELLITE EXPLOSION NO THREAT TO EUROPEAN SPACE MISSIONS - The debris from the military weather satellite that exploded in orbit last month doesn't pose a threat to any nearby European missions, officials with the European Space Agency have said. The U.S. Air Force's Defense Meteorological Satellite Program Flight 13 (DMSP-F13) broke up into 43 pieces on February 3. After 20 years in orbit, the satellite experienced a power system failure that sparked a silent space explosion. The break-up adds more debris, or space junk, into low-Earth orbit. Because Earth-gazing missions and some communication satellites commonly use the part of space where the explosion occurred, any extra debris poses a threat to other satellites in orbit.    More
