China's Kuaizhou-1A rocket launches two more satellites
China's Kuaizhou-1A sent another two multimedia satellites into space on Sunday after the successful launch of a remote sensing satellite on Wednesday, according to China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASC). The two satellites have already entered the pre-set orbit by the time of release. The rocket, carrying the satellites named KL-α-A, KL-α-B, blasted off from northwestern China's Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center at 18:00 p.m. BJT. The two satellites atop were developed by the Innovation Academy for Microsatellites of Chinese Academy of Sciences to conduct Ka-band communication technology test for German customers.

NASA Attaches All Four RS-25 Engines to Artemis I Rocket Stage
Engineers and technicians at NASA’s Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans have attached all four RS-25 engines to the core stage for NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) rocket that will help power the first Artemis mission to the Moon. To complete assembly of the rocket stage, crews are now integrating the propulsion and electrical systems within the structure. The completed core stage with all four RS-25 engines attached is the largest rocket stage NASA has built since the Saturn V stages for the Apollo Program that first sent Americans to the Moon. Engineers and technicians at Michoud attached the fourth RS-25 engine to the rocket stage Nov. 6 just one day after structurally mating the third engine. The first two RS-25 engines were structurally mated to the stage in October. Integration of the RS-25 engines to the recently attached engine section is a collaborative, multistep process for NASA and its partners Boeing, the core stage lead contractor, and Aerojet Rocketdyne, the RS-25 engines lead contractor. The four RS-25 engines, which are each roughly the size of a compact car, will together provide the SLS rocket 2 million of its 8.8 million pounds of maximum thrust.

Why NASA is sending rockets into Earth’s leaky atmosphere
NASA scientists are seeking a strange breed of northern lights in the Arctic. When these auroras shine, Earth’s atmosphere leaks into space. Read more from our blog from Ny-Ålesund - the closest town to the North Pole: https://blogs.nasa.gov/sunspot/2019/11/14/a-shot-in-the-dark-part-i/ In the tiny Arctic town of Ny-Ålesund, where polar bears outnumber people, winter means three months without sunlight. NASA scientists traveled to Ny-Ålesund to launch rockets through these auroras and witness oxygen particles right in the middle of their escape. Piercing these fleeting auroras, some 300 miles high, would require strategy, patience — and a fair bit of luck. This was NASA’s VISIONS-2 mission, and this is their story. VISIONS-2 was just the first of many. Over the coming months, rocket teams from all over the world will launch rockets into this region as part of the Grand Challenge Initiative—Cusp, an international collaboration to study the mysteries of the polar atmosphere.

Sounding Rockets: Cutting-Edge Science, 15 Minutes at a Time
Some of the smallest and lightest rockets in NASA’s lineup have made some of the biggest impacts on science. With a flight time of just about 15 minutes before falling back to Earth, sounding rockets collect unique observations on everything from our planet’s atmosphere to the Sun and even distant galaxies. Join us live to hear from scientists who have traveled to the ends of the Earth to launch sounding rockets, flown cutting-edge instruments on these suborbital flights, and used sounding rockets to make brand-new scientific discoveries.
Inside KSC! Nov. 8, 2019
Boeing’s CST-100 Starliner completed the Pad Abort Test, November 4, at the U.S. Army’s White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico. The next spacecraft to study the Sun arrived at Kennedy on November 1. Solar Orbiter was delivered to the Launch and Landing Facility, formerly the Shuttle Landing Facility, aboard an Antonov cargo plane. Solar Orbiter is a European Space Agency mission with NASA participation. This week, the spaceport was the first NASA center to be named a Purple Heart Entity by the Military Order of the Purple Heart. Kennedy is being recognized as a Purple Heart Entity for the support of veterans though employment opportunities and services provided to veterans by the center’s veterans employee resource group.
What are Hypergolic Rocket Fuels? (Other than Explosive, Corrosive, Toxic, Carcinogenic and Orange)
Hypergolic fuels are a core technology in rocket science, propellents that will spontaneously combust when mixed together. This makes them attractive for rocket designers, who generally aren't the people who have to get in a the protective gear to load the stuff.
So, what are they made of, and why do designers pick one option over another?
Rocket Science in 60 Seconds: What Is the NASA SLS Rocket’s Exploration Upper Stage?
Rocket Science in 60 Seconds gives you an inside look at work being done at NASA to explore deep space. Kent Chojnacki is the associate manager for the Stages Office for NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) rocket at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama. In this episode, Kent explains how the exploration upper stage will make the SLS rocket even more powerful and allow more cargo to be sent to the Moon on Artemis lunar missions and later on missions to Mars.

Long March 4B Rocket
China on Sunday launched a new Earth observation satellite, Gaofen-7, which will play an important role in land surveying and mapping, urban and rural construction and statistical investigation, according to the China National Space Administration (CNSA). The Gaofen-7, launched on a Long March 4B rocket at 11:22am (Beijing Time) from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center in northern China's Shanxi Province, is China's first civil-use optical transmission three-dimensional surveying and mapping satellite that reaches the sub-meter level. Via the same carrier rocket, three other commercial and scientific experiment satellites including one developed for Sudan were also sent into space.

The Space Launch System core stage pathfinder - a full-scale mock-up of the rocket's actual core stage - was loaded back onto NASA's Pegasus barge for its return trip to the agency's Michoud Assembly Facility in Louisiana. While at Kennedy, the pathfinder allowed teams to practice offloading, maneuvering and stacking techniques. Also, SpaceX fired up the Crew Dragon's SuperDraco engines in preparation of the company's In-Flight Abort Test.

Everything We Know About The US Air Force's Secret Space Plane - The X-37B
For the last 10 years the US Air Force has been flying a small reusable space plane designated the X-37B, carrying out classified missions in low Earth orbit. This of course makes it something of a magnet for crazy conspiracy theories suggesting it's a weapons platform or it's changing the weather. However it was always pitched as a reusable platform to perform extended experiments in space starting back when it was a joint project with NASA. But NASA left the project after developing new flight control sensors and algorithms, because the purpose of the final product largely replicated capabilities already offered by the Space Station. The DoD had similar testing requirements with the extra constraint of keeping the hardware and tests classified, so, the X-37B offers them this capability. Photos of X37B in space by Ralph Vandebergh
