#RocketLab #火箭實驗室 | Testing the #NextGeneration #Electron #CarrierRocket #RunningOutOfFingers in developing progressively for #ReusableCarrierRocket ….

An American – New Zealand based Carrier Rocket company Rocket lab in which it’s preparations for an launch of 25th November 2019  in which is bound to be launched from the eastern coast of North Island New Zealand from its Mahia Peninsula Launch complex one launch for the late February calendar.. In which it’ll be position in a LEO –Low Earth Orbital position… In which its launch time is unknown to be announce….   Also featuring the next generation’s series of the Electron 3D printed booster rocket engine for its tenth launched…

Launching featuring Electron Carrier Rocket with its carbon fibre fuselage with its next generation 3D printed engine.. is this mission will carry deployment of several Commercial Small Satellites  into its designated orbit in which the Next Generation Electron Engine is designed to be used as Reusable for the Reusable first Staging Carrier Rocket in  which is test driving for any lessons learn towards full commercially of a cost effective reusable carrier rocket..

On this mission of Running out of Fingers, is an onboard rideshare mission in which the payload composes of six spacecraft’s 5cm PocketQube microsatellites from satellite manufacturer and mission management provider Alba Orbita…. In which the final eighth payload to ridesharing is Spaceflight for ALE Co., Ltd (ALE), a Tokyo-based company creating microsatellites that simulate meteor particles.

ATL-1: A payload from Advanced Technology of Laser (ATL) from Hungary designed to test a new thermal isolation material in space, conduct a thermal insulator material experiment, and DVB-T band spectrum monitoring.

Fossasat-1: FossaSat 1 is a picosatellite developed by Spanish non-profit organization Fossa Systems. The spacecraft, which fits in the palm of a hand, is a communications satellite that uses low power RF to provide IOT connectivity.

NOOR 1A & NOOR 1B: These satellites from Stara Space will demonstrate LEO-to-LEO intersatellite link technology communicating with ground stations on Earth; crucial technologies required to create a real-time global communications constellation in space.

SMOG-P: A novel spectrum monitoring payload built by students at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics in Hungary. Smog-P features a spectrum analyzer to measure man-made electromagnetic pollution from space.

TRSI Sat: ACME AtronOmatic is a US-Germany based software application development company that provides flight tracking services to the aviation community and to mobile applications such as MyRadar, a weather radar application for mobile devices.

ALE-2: Tokyo-based ALE Co., Ltd ‘s ALE-2 satellite aims to create man-made shooting stars by simulating re-entering meteor particles. The satellite includes multiple redundant attitude sensors and controllers, as well as a propulsion system for maneuvers.

Launch update: We’re standing down from today’s launch attempt to conduct further tests on ground systems. We’ll update with a new target launch date soon. The window remains open until 12 December

Work on the Stage 2 umbilical that caused us to stand down from last week’s launch is nearing completion, however poor weather conditions are driving a launch attempt no earlier than 07:56 UTC, Friday 6 Dec. Stay tuned for updates as we continue to assess weather this week.

Teams at Launch Complex 1 are moving into position for today’s launch December sixth 2019  in which launch successfully  attempt of the #RunningOutOfFingers mission. Ground winds are a concern that we’re monitoring as we approach the opening of the window at 07:56 UTC.

 Including during this first test flight of the testing the next generation of  Electron Carrier Rocket with its new Next Generation Rutherford Engine in progressively developing towards Reusability  the first guided, full telemetry re-entry of the Electron launch vehicle’s first stage as part of Rocket Lab’s plans to re-use and re-fly rocket boosters in future missions. Recovery instrumentation onboard this flight will include guidance and navigation hardware, including S-band telemetry and onboard flight computer systems, to live-gather data during the first stage’s atmospheric re-entry, as well as a reaction control system to orient the booster.. In which those new instruments installed will help the process of developing the Next Generation Electron reusable Carrier Rocket …

Down Southern hemisphere in Mountain Wellington – Auckland, New Zealand,  an American Base Carrier Rocket Company that made it’s based in an industrial section of Auckland, in which that American Base space company is Named Rocket Lab – 火箭實驗室, in which in production of their next product range in which is purposely design to fully integrated into the Electron Carrier Rocket in which also design to forgo the various steps of having to adaption, finding compatibles  or modifications … in which lead towards the one stop store in producing a spacecraft in creating a heritage space craft chassis design in a co-architecting component for the upper stage or the secondary staging for the Electron Carrier Rocket in which if forms as integrated module known as the  kick stage module…  that small robust space craft is named the光子Photon orthough it’s not that Star Trek Photon Torpedo..

With an operational life cycle of five years, Design for the LEO Low Earth Orbit towards thirty seven degrees towards SSO Sun Synchronous Orbits missions with a weight upwards of least than 170 Kilograms in which of orbital dependent.. having the Photon Space Craft that allows the Satellite to be constructed with their mission criteria requirements in which that could easily integrated, or the provide satellite hardware that could be arrange within the Photon Space Craft Chassis module also its core 3D printed  Curie Engine unit in which is core propulsion system of the secondary stage of the Electron Carrier Rocket in which among another base bundle package is the S-Band Communications systems with the integrated high fidelity Attitude Control system along with the avionics unit ….
