Firefly successfully launched Alpha on Noise of Summer mission


Firefly successfully launched Alpha on Noise of Summer mission After six months of preparation following its last flight, Firefly successfully launched the Alpha rocket on its fifth mission. After deciding to stand down from a July 2 launch attempt while teams evaluated and tested the systems responsible for aborting the launch on Monday, July 1, Firefly took off at 9:04 PM PDT on July 3 (4:04 UTC on July 4). The mission, named Noise of Summer, launched eight CubeSats to a Sun Synchronous Orbit (SSO) from Space Launch Complex-2W (SLC-2W) at Vandenberg Space Force Base (VSFB) in California. NSF is providing livestream production services to Firefly, with the stream starting at T-30 minutes and available on the NASASpaceflight YouTube channel.   More
