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 Systemsin 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..
Recently late August 2017 , Auckland Based, Made in New Zealand- Rocket Lab, has recently tested for its second attempt test certification launch for its New Zealand Homemade Electron Carbon fibre Rocket with, it’s innovative 3D printed oxygen/ kerosene Rutherford Engines for its primary components in which clustered to same mirroring pioneering propulsion systems like the Soyuz’s daisy Clustered engines which has a component print time averagely of twenty four hours..
Previous the first test certification flight nicknamed “it’s a Test”was launched in 25th May 2017.. on the east coast of North Island, at Mahia peninsula in which launch complex one, New Zealand made constructed in the same manner like Space X’s Falcon nine’s also the Roscomos Soyuz’s Launcher carrier transfer pad tractor rocket system to launch pad facilities..
As part of the second static testing was to solve any further issues that resulted from the first flight in findings it was a telemetry data loss issue that lead towards the termination of the “it’s a Test’ first certification flight in which was corrected as part of investigation as Rocket Lab testing out the essentials it’s preparing for its second certification testing flight in which is coming soon..
At one time in Auckland History, a Township naming Mangere Bridge, located in the Manukau Harbour, Used to be a major suburban hub that interconnects between Mangere Bridge to the Onehunga, in which that township was busy in up to the mid 1980’s as the final construction of the new constructed Managere Bridge that became operational in 1983…. In which took ten years to build, to replace the previous one in which still stands today….as a recreational park, part of the Community, in where people now days used it to walk to work, school.. Recreationally fish from the Harbour, with as part of Auckland’s bicycle peddling network also is a resting spot for resting..
Before 1983, the old Mangere Bridge constructed in 1914, it was widely used to the point where bridge up to moment in 1980’s it was beyond saturation point more than Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong’s old Kai Tak International Airport in Kowloon Bay As the its replacement was still finalized in construction after a ten year stall after stall in construction due to labor disputes.. Back then driving on the old bridge in which Coronation road that lead up into the Mangere Bridge Township was intense intensified as the new bridge waits… With one of the known traffic also it was one of the known roadways that link up travelling in from Auckland CBD towards Onehunga towards Mangere Bridge Township towards the Jean Batten international Airport- Auckland international Airport…
Most of the Township still have it;s soul in which you can see it soul through the character also this place has the best pie ( Hong Kong Bakery) in Auckland….
The Old Bridge was a revolutionary in it’s concrete construction in which it was stronger build in 1914…
recreational fishing of the Old Mangere Bridge..
The Old Bridge restored, modified to its humble retirement in which that retirement is recreational with local fishing in the comunity…
The Mangere Bridge Township Village Going through a revitalization thriving in its own right..
Onehunga Wharf in it’s previous years of early last century this Wharf used to be alot busier in carrying alot freight.. It still does, but with Fish Mongers Fishing Trawlers making out in early hours in the morning to catch early catch.. as to this used to be a ferrying point to get around to the Auckland Central..
The Place has a strong sense of history.. one concerning of Mangere Mountain in which used to be a Maori Pa site where one was fortified……
bike riding is the now replacement of the Old Bridge in which previously serving the heavy automobiles that once saturated it’s tarmac roads..
this Coronation Road was once a vital road that connected to Onehunga towards the Auckland Central , it restfully enjoys a humble pace of life…..
The old Mangere Bridge in which still stands today in which constructed during wartime 1914 in World War one and two, was design to be a wartime bridge the way how it was layout and design was to have elements of being Anti-Tank block, with some sentry towers… as a procedure the harbour also the bridge was mined for just in case.. Interesting enough the bridge itself was designed lowered as to counter any larger wartime or patrol boats from entry the mouth of the harbour…
During those times when the old Mangere Bridge was active, traffic thoroughfare through the Mangere Bridge Township was a lot more intensified than as now today… as now days the traffic is no longer through the main street of the village as it’s completely diverted through Auckland’s South-western Motorway –SH20.. As the large component of traffic is diverted the township has recently enjoyed its now provincial humbling as its thriving growing local community…..
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 the 26th 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” 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 from it firstly New Zealand’s home-grown constructed Electron Rocket launch complex facilities.. In which taken from many inspirational designs from the early days of NASA, SpaceX, also from the Soyuz rocket launcher systems…
With is their sleek All Black sporting flag colour like Air New Zealand’s21st Century livery that’s now iconic.. so is now the Rocket Lab’s Electron rocketcomes 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.
As Rocket Lab’s Electron Rocket starts with in currently certification process in various launch testing that been in currently previously done from its first launch, in progressive process in creating its own standard in launching various of payloads, this show the simulated potential of the of the Electron deploying its first payload from a two staging rocket system in getting low orbit payloads accessible into low earth orbit..
As New Zealandhas 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..….
