NASA Admits they Favored Boeing over SpaceX
Check out my new shirts: https://ineedmore.space/shop NASA and Boeing have completed major reviews of Boeing's uncrewed Orbital Flight Test in December 2019 and have 80 recommendations that need to be addressed prior to the first crewed flight. Publically, NASA always said they treated the Starliner and Dragon teams equally, but behind the scenes, NASA administrators and managers favored Boeing over SpaceX due to their more traditional approach to spaceflight.

Rocketlab's Electron Rocket Fails on 13th Launch.
You know I've heard it's Bad luck to be superstitious, so let's just ignore the number right?
Rocketlab's latest mission was called 'Pics or it Didn't Happen' and we didn't get pictures of it reaching orbit. Instead the video cut out and the second stage fell back to earth, likely breaking up due to reentry forces. Very little information is available right now, but this covers what we know.
Rocket Lab loses vehicle after broadcast - Watch it launch!
Rocket Lab's "Pics Or It Didn't Happen" mission ended in failure when there was an anomaly during the second stage burn on July 4, 2020. The Electron rocket was carrying 7 satellites for Planet, Canon Electronics, and In-Space Missions. -- Full Story: https://www.space.com/rocket-lab-electron-booster-launch-failure.html Credit: Rocket Lab
Rocket Lab - Pics Or It Didn't Happen Launch
Inside KSC! for July 2, 2020
The solid rocket boosters that will launch NASA’s Space Launch System rocket and Orion spacecraft on Artemis I are beginning to come together at the agency's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Also, Kennedy’s most prominent landmark - the Vehicle Assembly Building - is getting an updated look with a fresh coat of paint on its NASA logo and American flag.
GPS III Space Vehicle 03 Mission
SpaceX is targeting Tuesday, June 30 at 4:10 p.m. EDT, 20:10 UTC, for a Falcon 9 launch of the GPS III Space Vehicle 03 mission from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. A backup opportunity is available on Wednesday, July 1 with a 15-minute launch window opening at 3:51 p.m. EDT, 19:51 UTC. Following stage separation, SpaceX will land Falcon 9’s first stage on the “Just Read the Instructions” droneship, which will be stationed in the Atlantic Ocean. The spacecraft will deploy approximately 1 hour and 29 minutes after liftoff.
One rocket launch can’t unify America
In May, SpaceX and NASA launched their historic DM-2 mission while protests over the death of George Floyd roiled the country. Can the space industry hope to unite Americans behind a common cause, when it largely ignores the division and injustice here on the ground?

Inside KSC! for June 26, 2020
The Orion crew module and its adapter are undergoing key testing and maintenance for NASA's first crewed Artemis mission at the agency's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Also, the United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket underwent a wet dress rehearsal at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station’s Space Launch Complex 41, in preparation for launch of NASA’s Mars 2020 mission. Finally, Kennedy Director Bob Cabana, along with the center’s executive leadership team, came together to address vital issues affecting our communities.
The Daily Space 17 June 2020: Rocket Roundup
Join us for this week's Rocket Roundup with host Annie Wilson, where we’ll watch China launch an oceanography satellite, Rocket Lab launch an Electron rocket called “Don’t Stop Me Now”, and SpaceX launch even more Starlink satellites (plus a few hitchhiking SkySats).
How to build the Orion ESM - Assembly, Integration & Test
"A very complex piece of engineering." Today we are highlighting the assembly, integration and test phase. Here, coordination between our people is the most important factor. Did you know that 14 teams work together, on different sections, to build the Orion European Service Module? 🔗 https://www.airbus.com/newsroom/events/virtual-comms.html?fbclid=IwAR0LnZE1P0GBsZbpW1SI-OG7ov6a4oVWS_kSph9_1-8imC1k4ujkOVCU4E4#space #spacematters #behindthescenes #ARTEMIS
Skylark Nano’s launch from Shetland soil
Edinburgh-based Skyrora successfully launched its Skylark Nano rocket from remote land, the Fethaland Peninsula at North Roe on the Scottish island on Saturday, the 13th of June.
Reaching an altitude of six kilometers, this marked the third time the 2 meter (6.5ft) projectile took to the skies. The launch was completed for educational purposes, collecting meteorological data, measuring wind profiles, analysing the vehicles trajectory and providing critical training in support of Skyrora’s future plans.

SSMS inaugural flight on Vega
Multiple small satellites will be launched at once on the Vega VV16 mission from Europe’s Spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana. This flight will demonstrate the modular SSMS dispenser resting on its upper stage intended to bring routine affordable launch opportunities for light satellites from 0.2 kg CubeSats up to 400 kg minisatellites. Until now the smallest classes of satellites – all the way down to tiny CubeSats, built from 10 cm modular boxes – have typically ‘piggybacked’ to orbit. They have to make use of any spare capacity as a single large satellite is launched, meaning their overall launch opportunities are limited. The new Vega Small Spacecraft Mission Service switches this into a ‘rideshare’ model, with multiple small satellites being flown together, splitting the launch cost. SAB Aeropsace in the Czech Republic and Bercella in Italy designed and manufactured this modular dispenser for ESA’s Vega prime contractor Avio. The component structures are made of very low-density aluminium ‘sandwich’ panels protected by carbon fibre reinforced polymer skins. This makes it very lightweight and rigid. The SSMS comprises two main sections, the hexagonal lower section can hold six nanosatellites or up to a dozen CubeSat deployers while the upper section section is used for microsatellites, minisatellites and small satellites. The lower section can also be used independently, coupled with a larger satellite replacing the top section. The hexagonal module, a central column, towers, a supporting platform and a set of standard satellite interface spacers are assembled to suit each mission and combination of satellites. For this flight, a configuration called Flexi-3 weighing just 330 kg is being used. This demonstration flight aims to prove the technical and financial viability of the rideshare service. ESA has collaborated with the European Union, which has partly funded this mission within the Horizon 2020 programme. This is part of the Contribution Agreement between ESA and the EU on space technology activities signed on 16 April 2019. The animation shows the separation of the ESAIL mission which is a joint ESA LuxSpace project to extend the monitoring of maritime traffic beyond existing land-based tracking of Automatic Identification Systems (AIS) through the means of an array of microsatellites: SAT-AIS. ★ Subscribe: http://bit.ly/ESAsubscribe and click twice on the bell button to receive our notifications.

SpaceX is targeting Saturday, June 13 at 5:21 a.m. EDT, 9:21 UTC, for launch of its ninth Starlink mission, which will include 58 Starlink satellites and three of Planet’s SkySats. Falcon 9 will lift off from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, and a backup opportunity is available on Sunday, June 14 at 4:59 a.m. EDT, 8:59 UTC. This mission marks SpaceX’s first SmallSat Rideshare Program launch. Falcon 9’s first stage previously supported Dragon’s 19th and 20th resupply missions to the International Space Station. Following stage separation, SpaceX will land Falcon 9’s first stage on the “Of Course I Still Love You” droneship, which will be stationed in the Atlantic Ocean. Half of Falcon 9’s fairing previously flew on the JCSAT-18/Kacific1 mission, and the other half previously flew on SpaceX’s third Starlink mission.

Details You Might Have Missed From NASA & SpaceX's Launch Of Astronauts
All the big stories have been told, but there's a lot of equally interesting little stories about the mission, facts and observations, new technology and old traditions. So here's me talking about a bunch of hings you might have missed from the launch.
Inside KSC! for June 5, 2020
Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley arrived at the International Space Station after launching from Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The two NASA astronauts lifted off aboard SpaceX's Crew Dragon capsule, powered by a Falcon 9 rocket, as part of the agency's SpaceX Demo-2 mission. Also, activities continue at Kennedy in preparation for launch of NASA's Mars Perseverance Rover next month.
