SpaceX is targeting Sunday, June 6 for Falcon 9’s launch of the SXM-8 mission from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida. The one-hour and 59-minute launch window opens at 12:26 a.m. EDT, 4:26 UTC, and a backup launch opportunity is available on Monday, June 7 with the same one-hour and 59-minute launch window. Falcon 9’s first stage booster previously supported SpaceX’s Crew-1 and Crew-2 missions, which launched astronauts to the International Space Station. Following stage separation, SpaceX will land Falcon 9’s first stage on the “Just Read the Instructions” droneship, which will be located in the Atlantic Ocean.

Inside KSC! for June 4, 2021
An uncrewed Dragon spacecraft is on its way to the International Space Station after launching from Kennedy Space Center's Launch Complex 39A on June 3, 2021, on SpaceX's 22nd commercial resupply services mission for NASA. Liftoff occurred at 1:29 p.m. EDT, and the spacecraft will deliver more than 7,300 pounds of science and research experiments, vehicle hardware, and crew supplies to the orbiting laboratory. Also, teams prepare to integrate the Space Launch System core stage with the twin solid rocket boosters. The core stage will be moved from the transfer aisle in the Vehicle Assembly Building into High Bay 3, where it will be placed in between the boosters atop the mobile launcher in preparation for the Artemis I launch.
The National Space Society's Nomination of SpaceX for the Collier Trophy
In 2021, the National Space Society nominated SpaceX for the 2020 Collier Trophy based on the achievements of the Falcon 9 rocket and Crew Dragon spacecraft.
SpaceX - CRS22 - Four Camera Views 06-03-2021
Beautiful rocket, just went into the clouds too soon. SpaceX has been launching on time without delay. Unfortunately this was our first CRS mission that we could "not" be at the press site. Why? No one Knows? We are a US disabled veteran run, non-profit video production company whose mission is to bring other disabled US Veterans to witness a launch, experience US Space History and become part of our report. Our nonprofit 501(c)(3) is 100% tax deductible, just go to our webpage www.USLaunchReport.com which is merged with www.VeteransSpaceReport.com and find our Donate button. You can help change the life of a US Veteran. Thank You

SpaceX's CRS-22 Mission to the Space Station: What's On Board
Scientists and students shared their work that is launching on SpaceX’s 22nd commercial resupply mission to the International Space Station during a What’s on Board briefing at Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Studies include an investigation of how microscopic water bears react to life in microgravity, and an experiment aimed at giving scientists fundamental knowledge of how good microbes interact with animal tissue. Students from the Robertsville Middle School in Oak Ridge, Tennessee discussed RamSat, a student-built CubeSat designed to track vegetation regrowth after wildfires.
The SpaceX CRS-22 mission is scheduled to launch to the orbiting laboratory on June 3.

Arianespace Flight ST32 - OneWeb (EN)
Performed on Friday, May 29 at precisely 02:38 a.m. local time at Russia’s Vostochny Cosmodrome (05:38 p.m. on May 28, UTC), Soyuz Flight ST31 orbited 36 new OneWeb satellites – bringing the size of the fleet in orbit to 218. Flight ST32 was the 57th Soyuz mission carried out by Arianespace and its Starsem affiliate. “Congratulations to all the teams who made this seventh launch dedicated to OneWeb’s satellites a success,” said Stéphane Israël, Chief Executive Officer of Arianespace and Starsem. “At Arianespace, we embrace the idea that space should serve the ultimate goal to creating a better life on Earth… By supporting OneWeb’s success, anywhere, at any time I am convinced that we do just so.” Arianespace has launched 218 OneWeb satellites through seven Soyuz launches to date. Arianespace will perform 12 more Soyuz launches through 2021 and 2022. These launches will enable OneWeb to complete the deployment of its full global constellation of low Earth orbit satellites before the end of 2022. OneWeb’s mission is to create a global connectivity platform through a next-generation satellite constellation in low Earth orbit. The OneWeb constellation will deliver high-speed, low-latency connectivity to a wide range of customer sectors, including aviation, maritime, enterprise and governments. Central to its purpose, OneWeb seeks to bring connectivity to the hardest to reach places, where fiber cannot reach, and thereby bridge the digital divide. The satellite prime contractor is OneWeb Satellites, a joint venture of OneWeb and Airbus Defence and Space. The satellites were produced in Florida, USA in its leading-edge satellite manufacturing facilities that can build up to two satellites per day on a series production line dedicated to spacecraft assembly, integration, and testing.
Inside KSC! for May 28, 2021
NASA and SpaceX are preparing for the company’s 22nd Commercial Resupply Services mission to the International Space Station. The Falcon 9 rocket with the Dragon capsule is scheduled to lift off from Launch Complex 39A on Thursday, June 3. Also, researchers in the Exploration Research and Technology programs recently completed tests on NASA’s Biology Experiment-1 inside the center’s Vibration Laboratory. The experiment is a space biology pathfinder that will journey around the Moon aboard the Orion capsule on the Artemis I mission.
SpaceX is targeting Wednesday, May 26 for the next Falcon 9 launch of 60 Starlink satellites from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida. The instantaneous window is at 2:59 p.m. EDT, or 18:59 UTC, and a backup opportunity is available on Thursday, May 27 at 2:37 p.m. EDT, or 18:37 UTC. Falcon 9’s first stage booster previously supported the Sentinel-6A mission. Following stage separation, SpaceX will land Falcon 9’s first stage on the “Just Read the Instructions” droneship, which will be located in the Atlantic Ocean. One half of Falcon 9’s fairing previously supported four Starlink missions, and the other previously supported a Starlink mission and the Transporter-1 mission.

A Falcon 9 roars to life at launch complex 40 for a routine pre-launch test firing of its nine Merlin first stage engines. The brief ignition occurred at 7:05pm EDT (2305 GMT) on May 24, 2021. If everything checks out OK, SpaceX will give the go-ahead to continue preparations for liftoff at 2:59 p.m. EDT (1859 GMT) on May 26, 2021 with up to 60 new satellites for the company’s Starlink internet network.
Virgin Galactic Test Flight Reaches Space From New Mexico
Virgin Galactic on Saturday made its first rocket-powered flight from New Mexico to the fringes of space in a manned shuttle, as the company moves toward offering tourist flights to the edge of the Earth's atmosphere. The company announced the firing of VSS Unity's rocket motor to hurtle the ship and two pilots toward space. A live feed by NASASpaceFlight.com showed the rocket ship accelerating upward, estimated a top altitude of at least 50 miles and confirmed a landing later via radar. Virgin Galactic founder Sir Richard Branson confirmed in a Twitter post that the two pilots and a research payload belonging to NASA had reached space. Virgin Galactic is aiming for commercial operations to begin next year following testing and a few months of downtime for maintenance and other upgrades.

Virgin Galactic completes 1st spaceflight in over 2 years, inching closer to commercial service
Virgin Galactic's space plane completed its first spaceflight after a two-year hiatus, inching the company ever closer to being able to enter commercial service. The Unity vehicle, with pilots Dave Mackay and CJ Sturckow behind the controls, flew to a height of 89 kilometres — or more than 291,000 feet — on Saturday after taking off for the very first time from Spaceport America, N.M. The craft was carried to an altitude of 44,000 feet by a carrier aircraft called VMS Eve, which then released the Unity. Firing its rocket engine accelerated it to more than three times the speed of sound. It performed a backflip in microgravity at the edge of space before returning through the atmosphere in a glide, landing back on the runway where it first took off.
