Relativity Is Creating the First Autonomous Rocket Factory

Relativity Is Creating the First Autonomous Rocket Factory

A new startup Relativity Space is creating the rocket factory of the future. Relativity is creating an entirely reimagined process to iterate and scale rockets quickly and build the future of humanity in space. So, Relativity is an orbital launch company that will deploy and resupply satellite constellations to connect and improve our planet. They are taking a fundamentally new approach to build and fly rockets.

We are Introducing You the First Earth Picture in Comparison with Last Erath Picture

We are Introducing You First Earth Picture in Comparison with Last Erath Picture

The first Earth Picture is very different from the last picture of Earth: the dissimilarities are really noticeable. The First Earth picture was taken on March 7, 1947. It was the time when a group of soldiers and scientists in the New Mexico desert saw something new and magnificent in these grainy black-and-white-photos: the first Earth picture. It is seen from height greater than 100 miles in space.

Virgin Galactic launched its first Spaceflight After a Fatal Crash in 2014

Virgin Galactic launched its First Spaceflight After a Fatal Crash in 2014

Virgin Galactic launched its first rocket Spaceship after a fatal crash in 2014. Virgin Galactic is a spaceflight company within the Virgin Group. It is developing commercial spacecraft and aims to provide suborbital spaceflights to space tourists and suborbital launches for space science missions. Virgin Galactic plans to provide orbital human spaceflights as well. SpaceShipTwo is air launched from beneath a carrier airplane known as White Knight Two. The founder of Galactic, Sir Richard Branson, had said that he hoped to see the first flight by the end of 2009, but this date has been delayed on a number of reasons, most recently by the October 2014 in-flight loss of SpaceShipTwo VSS Enterprise.

SpaceX Plans to Build BFR Big Falcon Rocket in Los Angeles

SpaceX Plans to Build BFR Big Falcon Rocket in Los Angeles

SpaceX is going to build its BFR (Big Falcon Rocket) spaceship with a new capacity in Los Angeles, Mayor Eric Garcetti declared on April 16. SpaceX’s founder and CEO, Elon Musk, has claimed that the BFR may also send humans to the moon, launch satellites to low Earth orbit, clean up orbital debris and move passengers around Earth at record speeds. Space.com mentioned “The company plans to use this ambitious new vessel, whose acronym name stands for “Big Falcon Rocket” (or a less-family-friendly version of that name) to send people to Mars by 2024 and set up a colony on the Red Planet within the next 50 to 100 years.”

SpinLaunch needs $30 million to Send Payloads into Space

SpinLaunch Promises to Send Payloads Twice Cheaper than Space X

There is something new to realize a great idea. A startup that is called SpinLaunch in California wants to send payloads into space, and SpinLaunch raised $30 million found to develop operation. SpaceX spends approximately $62 million to launch its Falcon 9 rocket, while more powerful Falcon Heavy costs $90 million per launch. However, the price of single launch would be reduced to under $500,000. The company is planning to utilize large centrifuge spinning rate. All of its momentum will be harnessed to catapult cargo into space. If the momentum is high enough, the payload would be able to leave the atmosphere of Earth (probably at a speed of 4,800 km/h or more) on its own.

Lunar Orbital Platform-Gateway

United States going to build Lunar Orbital Platform-Gateway costing 2.7B$

The Lunar Orbital Platform-Gateway was one of several projects funded in President Donald Trump’s $19.9 billion NASA budget proposal for 2019. It would work similarly to the International Space Station. The lunar platform will orbit the moon not the Earth. It is going to finish by 2023. Robert Lightfoot, NASA’s acting administrator, said “The platform would “help us further explore the moon and its resources and translate that experience toward human missions to Mars”. The power and propulsion element is going to lunch in 2022. This element would use solar electric propulsion to keep the gateway in the appropriate position in space. It also would provide space  to Earth, space to lunar and spacecraft to spacecraft communications, as well as support communication for spacewalks. Lasers would be transferred according to a Feb. 13 NASA web post.

Russian Proton rocket failure

The Russian rocket Proton launch was another failure for Russia

In March of the current year Roskosmos and EKA signed one more important agreement in frames of the ExoMars project. The ExoMars project assumes start in 2016 of an orbital probe of TGO (Trace Gas Orbiter) for research of Mars and landing disembarkation to its surface of the demonstration EDM module. And in 2018 will send a landing platform with a mars rover. Originally it was the EKA and NASA joint project, however the American side left it then Europeans addressed with the offer on cooperation to Roskosmos. For both missions Roskosmos will provide the carrier rockets “Proton” and the corresponding starting services. On July 2 approximately on the tenth second after start the Russian rocket Proton with three Glonass-M satellites suddenly changed the flight direction, started falling and blew up in the Baikonur Cosmodrome territory. It had to put for the first time since 2011 to orbit three navigation satellites for replenishment of orbital group. The Russian rocket Proton which has fallen on the first minute of start, it is far not the first spacecraft which has exploded at start. So, in 2010 on December 5 the similar Proton rocket with three GLONASS satellites couldn’t orbit vehicles.
