Editor's note: The ICESat-2 launch date is Sept. 12, not Sept. 2.
This week in space news, a SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft will resupply the International Space Station with a launch from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida later this month. NASA's Ice, Cloud, and land Elevation Satellite-2, or ICESat-2, arrived at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California on Tuesday.

OTD in Space – June 12: Venera 4 Launches on Mission to Venus
On June 12, 1967, Venera 4 was launched into space on a mission to Venus, thus becoming the first spacecraft to transmit data from another planet's atmosphere. This was a Russian probe designed to study the atmosphere of Venus down to the surface. At first, scientists believed that the probe had transmitted until contact with the surface of Venus. But transmissions had ended at an altitude of 16 miles (or 27 kilometers), when the extreme temperatures and high atmospheric pressure crushed the probe.
But from the data collected by Venera 4, we learned that the Venus' surface temperatures were 500 degrees Celsius and the pressure was 75 times more than Earth's. It also found that Venus' atmosphere was composed of 90 to 95 percent carbon dioxide with no nitrogen.

SpaceX Falcon 9 for Iridium-6 & GRACE-FO 🔴 Live Launch Commentary
Watch and discuss live as SpaceX launches a previously launched Block 4 (B1043.2) Falcon 9 rocket carrying the Iridium-6 mission carrying 5 of the Iridium NEXT satellites into orbit. This mission will only carry half of the usual amount of Iridium satellites since it will share the ride with two scientific satellites, GRACE-FO 1 and 2 for NASA & GFZ (German Research Centre for Geosciences).
Iridium NEXT will replace the world's largest commercial satellite network of low-Earth orbit satellites in what will be one of the largest "tech upgrades" in history. Iridium has partnered with Thales Alenia Space for the manufacturing, assembly and testing of all 81 Iridium NEXT satellites, 75 of which will be launched by SpaceX. Powered by a uniquely sophisticated global constellation of 66 cross-linked Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites, the Iridium network provides high-quality voice and data connections over the planet’s entire surface, including across oceans, airways and polar regions.
GRACE-FO will continue the task of the original GRACE mission, providing critical measurements that will be used together with other data to monitor the movement of water masses across the planet and mass changes within Earth itself. Monitoring changes in ice sheets and glaciers, underground water storage and sea level provides a unique view of Earth’s climate and has far-reaching benefits.

SpaceX is targeting launch of Iridium-6/GRACE-FO on Tuesday, May 22 from Space Launch Complex 4E (SLC-4E) at Vandenberg Air Force Base, California. The instantaneous launch opportunity is at 12:47 p.m. PDT, or 19:47 UTC. The GRACE-FO satellites will be deployed approximately eleven minutes and thirty seconds after launch, followed by the deployment of five Iridium® NEXT satellites beginning about an hour after launch.
A backup instantaneous launch opportunity is available on Wednesday, May 23 at 12:42 p.m. PDT, or 19:42 UTC.
Falcon 9’s first stage for the Iridium-6/GRACE-FO mission previously supported the Zuma mission from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in January 2018. SpaceX will not attempt to recover Falcon 9’s first stage after launch.
GRACE-FO Launches Aboard SpaceX Falcon 9
The Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment Follow-on (GRACE-FO) spacecraft launches from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California on May 22, 2018, aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. The mission is a successor to the original GRACE mission, and will carry on its work of tracking the movement of Earth’s water. NASA’s Launch Services Program, based at the agency’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, served in an advisory role for the launch.

GRACE-FO Prelaunch Briefing
Recorded live Monday, May 21, 10:30 a.m. PT
A joint mission with the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), GRACE-FO will provide critical measurements that will be used together with other data to monitor the movement of water masses across the planet and mass changes within Earth itself. Monitoring changes in ice sheets and glaciers, underground water storage, and sea level provides a unique view of Earth's climate and has far-reaching benefits. The mission is planned to fly at least five years.

Antares CRS-9 Launch 'Quicklook' Video
Orbital ATK’s Cygnus cargo spacecraft lifted off aboard the company’s Antares rocket at 4:44:06 a.m. EDT May 21, 2018, from Virginia Space’s Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport at NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility on Virginia’s Eastern Shore. The International Space Station-bound Cygnus was loaded with about 7,400 pounds of supplies and payloads, including critical materials to directly support dozens of the more than 250 science and research investigations occurring during the space station’s Expeditions 55 and 56.
These three video sequences show the CRS-9 launch from remotely operated cameras at the pad (sequence Nos. 1 and 2), and a camera operated at a viewing site a few miles away (sequence No. 3).

Space Storm Hunter’s trip to space
The Space Storm Hunter, also known as the Atmosphere-Space Interactions Monitor, completed its trip to space in a Dragon cargo vehicle in April 2018.
This video shows the different stages of that voyage, from launch to installation on the International Space Station.
The suite of instruments rode in the Dragon cargo vehicle that was launched on 2 April from Kennedy Space Center in Florida, USA.
After orbiting Earth for two days, Dragon positioned itself below the Station for capture. ESA astronaut Andreas Mogensen played a crucial role at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston as lead ‘capcom’ during Dragon’s rendezvous and berthing.
Operators on Earth commanded the International Space Station’s 16-m long robotic arm to move the 314-kg facility from the Dragon spacecraft’s cargo hold to its place of operation on Europe’s Columbus laboratory on 13 April.
It is the first time that such a set of sensitive cameras, light sensors and X- and gamma-ray detectors will study the anatomy of luminous phenomena in Earth’s upper atmosphere and bursts of high-energy radiation.
Data from this observatory will improve our understanding of the effect of thunderstorms on the atmosphere and contribute to more accurate climate models.
