REPLAY: Electron rocket "Look Ma, No Hands" launches from New Zealand (8/19/2019)
This is a replay of the live stream, with archived live chat messages.
Launch time: 8:12 am EDT (12:12 UTC)
Launch site: Launch Complex 1, Mahia Peninsula, New Zealand
Rocket Lab's eighth mission will lift-off in August from Launch Complex 1 in New Zealand, carrying a total of four satellites aboard an Electron launch vehicle. Launch scrubbed on Aug 16 due to high winds. Delayed from 17 Aug due to weather forecasts.
The mission is manifested with satellites destined to begin a new constellation for UNSEENLABS, as well as more rideshare payloads for Spaceflight, consisting of a spacecraft for BlackSky and the United States Air Force Space Command.
The mission is manifested with a CubeSat that will form the cornerstone of a new maritime surveillance constellation for French company UNSEENLABS. The constellation aims to deliver precise, reliable, and secure maritime data, enabling organizations to monitor their own vessels and observe those that present risks, such as pirates and illegal vessels.
Mission management and rideshare aggregator, Spaceflight, also manifested three satellites on its second rideshare mission with Rocket Lab. Among the rideshare payloads is BlackSky’s Global-4 Earth-imaging satellite. The satellite will join BlackSky Global-3, which was launched to low Earth orbit on an Electron vehicle in June 2019. BlackSky’s constellation delivers rapid-revisit satellite imagery to assist with monitoring economic activity such as crop development and herd migration, or surveying damage following natural disasters.
The final spacecraft manifested on the mission are two experimental satellites for the United States Air Force Space Command, designed to test new technologies including propulsion, power, communications, and drag capabilities for potential applications on future spacecraft.

Jielong Launch Vehicle
China's new carrier rocket Smart Dragon-1 (SD-1), designed for commercial use, made its maiden flight on Saturday, sending three satellites into the orbit. The rocket, developed by the China Rocket Co. Ltd. affiliated to the China Academy of Launch Vehicle Technology (CALVT), blasted off from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in northwest China at 12:11 (Beijing Time). It is the smallest and lightest among China's solid rockets. It is 19.5 meters long with a diameter of 1.2 meters and a takeoff weight of 23.1 tons. Another advantage of the rocket is the short launch preparation. According to the company, it can be turned in six months after a contract is signed, and launched within 24 hours after it is transported to the launch center. This time the rocket carried three commercial satellites which are to do remote sensing, telecommunication and navigation.
Marshall to Lead Human Landing System Development on This Week @NASA – August 16, 2019

Why Build Big Rockets At All? It’s Time For Orbital Refueling
On Tuesday, July 30th, NASA announced 19 different partnerships with 13 different companies to use their expertise to help them develop space technologies, from advanced communications systems to new methods of entry, descent and landing.
Instead of contracting out specific projects, NASA will make its employees, facilities, hardware and software available to these companies, for free.
One of the most notable of these partnerships will be with SpaceX and NASA’s Glenn and Marshall Centers to help advance the technology of transferring propellant in orbit.
In other words, NASA is going to help SpaceX figure out how to refuel a spacecraft while it’s in space. And if they can figure this out, it could completely change the way missions are launched and flown.
