#OrbitalATK #SpaceX | #IridiumNext –construction and testing… the Iridium 81’s


Under construction also testing currently at the moment in a car – Aircraft manufacturing type line is the construction of eighty one Iridium Next Satellites in Orbital ATK‘s Gilbert Arizona Satellite Manufacturing facility… As Orbital ATK is under contract from Thales Alenia Space to manufacture eighty one satellites to replacing its aging Constellation Satellites in which it was launched from a series of SpaceX falcon nines reusable carrier rocket booster that launched from its Vandenberg air force base also another location from the Iconic NASA’s launch complex 39A, in which launched the Saturn five Apollo mission to the moon, then converted to the STS-Space Transportation System-Space Shuttle mission..

Iridium Next Constellation is built from very ground up like assembly of building from a ground up of an aircraft or a car… in which the satellites are designed for LEO- Low Earth Orbit in with back up, also spare parts…. As with the LEO- Low Earth Orbit of 780 Kilometers above earth to allow shorter transmission paths also with given stronger signal gains of a LEO with a lower Latency, shorter registration time than having a GEO- Geo Stationary Orbit..  With the numerous clusters of the Iridium Next network in LEO, it’ll will minimized the empty spots therefore increasing the area coverage of continuing communications with overlapping communication coverage spots to minimizes dropped connections and various types of communications….  As the network is in LEO travelling in orbit at 27360 Km/hour it cover more communications requirements in each orbit takes 100 minutes ….

The Next launch of the IridiumNext cluster of ten satellites per launch is targeted for Ninth October 2017 with SpaceX Falcon Nine at Vandenberg Air Force Base (VAFB) in California at 0537 Pacific Date time Californian morning..

#SpaceX | #OTV5 – Orbital Test Vehicle five From that iconic #NASA- KSC Launch complex 39A – Highlights

On 9th September 2017 currently NASA – KSC is in total shutdown in which the 45th Space Wing in Patrick Air Force air force base- Cape Canaveral Air force station  has taken over operations of NASA – Kennedy Space Center for Hurricane Irma- level five  in preparing for the for the key evacuation of majority of NASA-KSC’s personal with at 92 personal team from Patrick Air Force Base is on recovery, damage assessment management at Kennedy Space Center with the Level of HURCON 3 to ride out the hurricane till is safe to come back to resume back into normal operations..

Just only hours moments before the shutdown was commencing, it was the launch of Space X – OTV 5 , from that Iconic NASA-KSC – Kennedy Space Center- Launch Complex pad 39A (LC-39A) , in which was launched on a specific timely window  due to the nature of what’s to come with the current situation.. in which that launch was on 7th September 2017 at 0950 Eastern Date Time in the morning with a window closing at 1455 Eastern Date Time in the morning..

The Payload in nature was a United States Air force X-37B- Orbital Test Vehicle –OTV- in which this vehicle was to become the next generation manned vehicle heritage design to replace the Boeing- Rockwell Space Shuttle with its innovative streamlines sleek lines learning from the last experiences..  This is the X-37B- Orbital Test Vehicle fifth launch mission launch in which is mission is unspecified due to the nature….

As the SpaceX launch from the iconic launch complex LC-39A, during the lift off the first stage begins to land traditionally eight minutes after lift-off onto Cape Canaveral Air force station  (LZ-1) landing zone one of the Falcon nine reusable..

#SPACEX #NROL76 | #FalconNine launch from that iconic NASA KSC launch complex 39A once again-part two of its highlights..

On the following Day of 30th April 2017, From the Iconic Launch Complex 39A is the launch of…..  From there the historical pad Launch Complex 39A has been undergoing many changes toward commercialization… in which leased to Space X, in which is standing by in least than half a day to launch from that iconic pad is the NROL-79 Satellite- in which the NROL is a designation of National Reconnaissance Office.. In which the first window of the launch in which was in 30th has been delayed due to the upper sensor failure… In which during the second window launch of the before the launch the sensor in question was replaced.. Due the nature of the launch the landing was only seen but not the faring of the secondary stage with the payload…

The launch from the Launch complex 39A of the of the Falcon nine reusable is an two hour window in which opens on a Florida Sunday 30th April 2017, on a following  morning launch 0700 EDT or 1100 Hours UTC, in with an backup launch window on the following day.. In which it follows the on the same timing as its initial launch window timing…

This launch is an traditional launch as the Falcon nine booster in question is a reusable, in which it’ll land Space X’s landing zone one –LZ-01 at Cape Canaveral Air force Station as it starts to land after launch into eight minutes and forty six seconds on Landing complex..


#SPACEX | #FalconNine #EchoStar23 the launch webcast- this launch is a little traditionally different..

On 14th March 2017 “SpaceX” in least than eight hours will launch EchoStar twenty three a communications Satellite from that iconic launch pad – Launch Complex 39A that launched the Saturn V-Apollo programme also the recent of its launch programme is the STS-Space Transportation Systems – Space Shuttle.. in which currently the Launch Complex 39A at NASA – National Aeronautics Space administration- Kennedy Space Center, still have the equipment currently still to launch the STS –Space Shuttle but currently undergoing serve modifications to accommodate the new SpaceX heavy and ultra-heavy falcons reusable rocket… this launch however will not attempt to land the Falcon Nine as traditionally due to the nature of the mission of the payload requirements.. ..

 The Launch of the” EchoStar twenty three” a communications Satellite manufactured by Space systems- Loral is designated to as broadcasting service provider satellite placed in high altitude to provide broadcasting services to Brazil in Geo-stationary orbit….    The launch from that Iconic Launch Complex 39A… from the historic pad, its launch window is at 0134 hours morning Eastern Daylight Time- 0534 morning UTC… as the launch process commerce’s into the flight it will deploy 34 minutes after the lift off..  Due to an second option a secondary window launch window opens on Thursday, 16th March 2017, at 0135 hours morning. EDT……

#SPACEX #NASA | #CRS-10 Falcon nine reusable first static tests firing from that Historical# NASAKSC Launch Pad 39A…….


As “Space X- Falcon nine Reusable” is set to return to launch on 18th February 2017, with the return to resupply the International Space Station with the CRS-10 Tenth mission of the Cargo Resupply Servicing number ten…. In preparation for the return to service mission it’s launched from one of the most iconic NASA’s Launch Pads in Space history, that very launch Pad in question is the soon to be remodeled, modified Space Launch Complex pad 39A the very one that seen the many launches from the Apollo Mission towards the Moon, among that it’s the STS- Space Transportation System- Space Shuttle seeing shuttles Columbia, Challenger, Atlantis, Discovery also Endeavor….

In preparations for the upcoming CRS-10 launch, numerous testing had to be done to check out any systems with its new historical launch platform modify for it’s used for the upcoming ultra and Heavy versions of Space X falcon nine variants.. one such testing is the Static test firing of the Falcon Nine’s reusable Merlin cluster Engines to see if all are in working order also its systems..  on 12th  February 2017…..

The Falcon nine reusable, including its CRS-10 payload assemble in the adjacent new constructed horizontal assembly building – HIF- Horizontal integration Facility nearby the SLC-39A is railway out to launch pad among too with the TE- Transporter Erector in the same traditional….. The launch window for CRS-10 is windowed for 1001 Hours morning Eastern Standard Time, in which is 1501 hours Greenwich Time with a ground landing this time instead of a drone ship landing…
