#OrbitalATK #OmegA #EELV | OrbitalATK’s newest sister for a larger class rocket carrier inspired by Omega Centauri- That starry Globular Cluster next to the #NewZealandFlag – #SouthernCross …..


Coming very soon in the OrbitalATK in its fleet of carrier rockets is the newest sister The OmegA in which is designed home-grown manufactured for the EELV- US-Air force Evolved Expendable Vehicle program exclusively… In which is design to have a payload capacity for 10.100 Tonnes for a GTO – Transfer Geostationary Orbit … for a lighter payload load for GEO- Geostationary Equatorial Orbit ..

The newest sister- OmegA… Features the naming from the First letter from two companies in collaboration with ATK.. With O then the A…. in which she is named after a starry object in the night sky only can been seen in the Southern Hemisphere in which One of many Observatories New Zealand’s Auckland Observatory-Stardome is one great viewing spot to view the globular cluster as you look into the Constellation Centauri area where the Southern Cross is right next to Epsilon Centauri…   looking least sixteen thousand light years ago back in time with a clustering of ten million stars with a diameter of least 160 Light years across…

 Featuring as a three stage rocket with a six clustered Strap on GEM63XL/T boosters strapping onto stage one (CASTOR 600 or 1200) powered up by a Aero Rocketdyne RL10C engines with the secondary (CASTOR 300) stage among with the tertiary stage in which has the thrust vector control system….   In which depending on the mission specs OmegA can be modified as a two stage launching various payload, or various numerous…..

Carbon Fibre composites as its main shell construction in which cost effective also in which reduces the time to  manufacturing operationally as it is printed onsite.. Providing low costing for customers in affordability.. the initial OmegA configuration flight is expected to launch within the early year of 2021 calendar in which certification of the EELV program later quarterly year in which latter for the heavy configuration flight certification is expected for the 2024 launch Calendar.. in which it be interesting to see how it completes fairly with American internally National Commercial launch Provides as likes of SpaceX, ULA- United Launch Alliance also RocketLab.. on the payload specifications requirements..

It’s Business Time for American-New Zealand’s Rocket Lab launching from Launch Complex One -Mahia Peninsula


On  a very wintery Autumn Friday- 20th April 2018- between 1230 hours New Zealand Time …. It’s the third launch of the American-New Zealand Company Rocket lab’s Electron from its launch complex One, East Coast of corner of North Island New Zealand’s Mahia peninsula… As from the second launch 21st January 2018 #StillTesting it launched a reflective object The Humanity Star in which its least intensity brightness than the ISS-International Space Station also providing people to look up in the night skies for it, also providing an educational insight for the general population to look into the starry night to wonder what’s out there.. The #StillTesting One of the Payloads that’s involve with the Still Testing launch is the CubeSats- micro satellites in which are two imaging Earth Dove satellites for Planet, also paired with a Spire dual weather reconnaissances Lemur 2 satellites in which will be used to data observationally collect of weather information analysis also provisionment for assisting of marine vessel traffic monitoring….

This time with the #ItsBusinessTime it’s now launch for a fourteen day launch window in commerce to launch for Spire Global again with new payload for GeoOptics Inc. both are manufactured by Tyvak Nano-Satellite Systems in which Spire Global micro satellites provisionments for imagining for weathering Data gathering also weather reconnaissance’s placing it into LEO- Low Earth Orbit in which provide marine navigational assistances….

However with RocketLab has been increasing the scale of production with it primary launch carrier rocket the Electron Rocket in which recently it been manufacturing it Rutherford engines in its Huntington Beach California operations in which that facilities manufactures the 3D printed Rutherford Engines in a scale of one hundred per year to mean launch customer demands in which Rocket Lab yet to achieve an every seventy two hour launching cycle for the micro Satellite market.. With a full constructed manufactured assemble Electron Rocket Carrier Rocket per week cycle… in way of Manufacturing Commercial Airliners Aircraft of Airbus and Boeing…  to meet the launch calendar of 2018 to 2019 year..

#ROCKETLAB | #NewZealandMade #Electron Rocket- successfully launched its maiden flight from Mahia Peninsula from #ItsATest launch complex one…… !


As New Zealand has become the ninth space industry country to be commercially  soon in launching payloads into orbit,  from New Zealand  north Island west coast line in Mahia Peninsula  on from a  22nd May 2017, with the launched window at in between 0900 to 2000 hours New Zealand Time..  in which this is the first commercial company in New Zealand in joining the Space industry in the provisions of providing affordable unique launch carriers … in which in its Home-grown Uniqueness is New Zealand Made comes to  mind is Rocket Lab.. 

As the building up to the to the launch window during the 22nd of May 2017, there’s been few weather related setbacks but none of technical issues came across towards the final launch that happen on 25th May 2017, in which on a partially clouded day with the right launching environmental weathering criteria, The Launched of the Rocket Lab was initiated nicknamed “IT’S A TEST”

In the past various launch complex sites was considered in various parts of New Zealand in which gives a suited launch location Mahia Peninsula was chosen to be the newly acquired first launch complex for Rocket lab’s carbon fibre hulling rocket the Electron.. In which stands at seventeen meters long, that’s half the length of a Captain Jean Luc Picard’s Sovereign Class Captain’s Yacht in which sits at 33.5 meters long.….

The home grown Rocket Lab’s Electron rocket comes with many New Zealand made innovations, in the hulling shell of the rocket is made out from durable sleek Carbon fibre with its innovative home grown clustered Rutherford Oxygen-Kerosene 3D printed Engines in which akin to the same design linage to the Soyuz, SpaceX, Blue Origin engine clustering…. The Electron is interesting innovative it’s takes many elements of Plug and Payload in which the payload make it easier to install at the Assembly building facilities. .   then readily install on the launch complex launcher ramp on the same design elements like the Russian’s Soyuz’s, Space X in which there’s been some interesting challenges in building the launch complex from the ground up but with the team that thinks innovatively like Admiral Montgomery Christopher Jorgensen “Scotty” Scott Chief engineer of the constitutional class Enterprise they can’t go wrong..….
