Starry night at the Ariane 6 launch base
This timelapse was filmed under the stars on the Ariane 6 launch base at Europe’s Spaceport in French Guiana. Preparations are under way for the arrival of Ariane 6, Europe’s next-generation launch vehicle. Imagine yourself stepping out of the launcher assembly building or standing on the launch pad in front of the 90-metre high mobile gantry, to look at the stars. Ariane 6, developed by ESA, has two versions depending on the required performance. This rocket will be capable of a wide range of missions to guarantee independent access to space for Europe and continue four decades of the Ariane adventure.

SpaceX is targeting Sunday, May 9 for 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 2:42 a.m. EDT, or 6:42 UTC, and a backup opportunity is available on Monday, May 10 at 2:21 a.m. EDT, or 6:21 UTC. This will be the tenth flight of the Falcon 9 first stage rocket booster supporting this mission, which previously launched Crew Dragon’s first demonstration mission to the International Space Station, the RADARSAT Constellation Mission, SXM-7, and six Starlink missions. 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. Both of Falcon 9’s fairing halves previously flew on the GPS III Space Vehicle 04 mission.
SpaceX Starlink 27 launch & Falcon 9 first stage landing, 9 May 2021
A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launched 60 Starlink satellites (Starlink-27) from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida, on 9 May 2021, at 06:42 UTC (02:42 EDT). Following stage separation, Falcon 9’s first stage landed on the “Just Read the Instructions” droneship, stationed in the Atlantic Ocean. Falcon 9’s first stage (B1051) previously supported nine missions: Demo-1 (Crew Dragon’s first demonstration mission), RADARSAT Constellation Mission, SXM-7 and six Starlink missions. According to SpaceX, Starlink 27 was “the first tenth flight of an orbital class rocket booster”.

Inside KSC! for May 7, 2021
The four astronauts who flew on NASA's SpaceX Crew-1 mission safely splashed down in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Panama City, Florida, on May 2, 2021. After spending nearly six months in space, their return to Earth marks the end of the first crew rotational mission to the International Space Station under the agency's Commercial Crew Program. Also, the memory of former astronaut Michael Collins was honored during a wreath-laying ceremony at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. Collins remained in lunar orbit on the historic Apollo 11 mission where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first people to walk on the Moon. He passed away on April 28 at the age of 90.
Chinese rocket one of the biggest pieces of uncontrolled space junk in history | The World
Space agencies are tracking the path of a Chinese rocket that is predicted to fall back to Earth some time in the next few days. Under international guidelines, rockets are supposed to return to earth in a controlled way, but the Long March 5B is spiralling out of control. Astronomer-at-large, Fred Watson says it's one of the largest pieces of space junk in history to make an uncontrolled re-entry into the Earth's atmosphere.

Space debris from Chinese rocket fall to Earth, but no one knows where it will land
A huge piece of space debris is about to make an uncontrolled re-entry back into Earth's atmosphere, threatening to fall on a number of cities around the world in the coming days. It's leftover from China's first module for its new Tianhe space station. Ramy Inocencio discusses the possibilities with CBS News space analyst William Harwood.

Chinese rocket to come crashing down to Earth at unknown location - BBC News
Debris from a Chinese rocket is expected to fall back to Earth in an uncontrolled re-entry this weekend. The main segment from the Long March-5b vehicle, weighing 18 tonnes, was used to launch the first module of China's new space station last month. Various space debris modelling experts are pointing to late Saturday or early Sunday (GMT) as the likely moment of re-entry. However, such projections are always highly uncertain. The US on Thursday said it was watching the path of the object but currently had no plans to shoot it down. Most of the vehicle should burn up when it makes its final plunge through the atmosphere, although there is always the possibility that metals with high melting points, and other resistant materials, could survive to the surface.

NASA's SpaceX Crew-1 Astronauts Answer Questions After Return to Earth
NASA’s SpaceX Crew-1 astronauts will answer questions at 3:45 p.m. EDT (19:45 UTC) Thursday, May 6, about their historic mission on the International Space Station and their return to Earth. NASA astronauts Michael Hopkins, Victor Glover, and Shannon Walker, along with Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) astronaut Soichi Noguchi, returned to Earth at 2:56 a.m. EDT (6:56 UTC) on May 2 under the parachutes of their Crew Dragon Resilience spacecraft. The successful launch of Crew-1 in November 2020 was the first flight of a NASA-certified commercial human spacecraft system in history. Crew-1 is the first of six crewed missions NASA and SpaceX will fly as part of NASA's Commercial Crew Program, which worked with the U.S. aerospace industry to return launches with astronauts on American rockets and spacecraft from American soil.
NASA SIO: Setting the Stage for Aviation’s Future
Over the past few years NASA has been testing and validating research associated with unmanned aircraft through a project called Unmanned Aircraft System Integration in the National Airspace System or UAS in the NAS project. This project spanned several years and addressed many of the early concerns of how unmanned aircraft would be integrated into our national airspace. After years of study the UAS in the NAS project has tackled many of the early concerns but one last big hurdle remains to successfully demonstrate how unmanned aircraft will work in harmony within the national airspace. With this in mind the final phase of testing is called the Systems Integration and Operationalization Demonstration activity or SIO. The goal of SIO is to work toward commercial UAS operations in the NAS. In order to accomplish that goal, NASA has partnered with American Aerospace Technology Incorporated (AATI), Bell, and General Atomics Aeronautical Systems (GA-ASI), Inc. to conduct fight demonstrations in the NAS that emulate commercial missions and begin working toward Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) type certification. On this episode of NASA X, we will take a look back at years of testing and development that have led up to the SIO demonstration flights. We'll meet the companies that are making these flights happen.

Crew-1 Mission | Return
SpaceX and NASA are targeting Saturday, May 1 at 8:35 p.m. EDT, or 00:35 UTC on May 2, for Dragon to autonomously undock from the International Space Station (ISS) and splashdown off the coast of Florida on Sunday, May 2 at approximately 2:57 a.m. EDT, 6:57 UTC, completing its first six-month operational mission to the Station. A series of departure burns will move Dragon away from the orbiting laboratory, followed by the vehicle jettisoning the trunk to reduce weight and mass to help save propellant for the deorbit burn. Once complete, Dragon will re-enter Earth’s atmosphere and deploy its two drogue and four main parachutes in preparation for a soft water landing. Aboard the spacecraft will be NASA astronauts Mike Hopkins, Victor Glover, Shannon Walker, and JAXA astronaut Soichi Noguchi, who flew to the space station on Dragon six months ago when Falcon 9 launched the spacecraft from historic Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Sunday, November 15, 2020. Upon splashdown, the Dragon and the astronauts will be quickly recovered and returned to Cape Canaveral and Houston respectively. Once the mission is complete, Dragon will be inspected and refurbished for future human spaceflight missions.
