Zitat von 15 Aug 20224:35 PM
But there will be other voyagers along for the ride when the SLS lifts off on 29 August: 10 CubeSats, satellites no bigger than a small briefcase, to probe the Moon, asteroids, and the radiation environment of deep space.

The investigators who built those satellites have more than the usual launch jitters: Half of them may not have enough power to begin their missions. Stuck within the rocket for more than a year because of launch delays, their batteries have drained to a level where some may be unable to boot up and unfurl their solar panels. “The longer we wait, the higher the risk,” says Ben Malphrus of Morehead State University, principal investigator for Lunar IceCube, one of the CubeSats with power concerns.

At stake is not just data, but a test of CubeSats as deep-space probes.

#57 RE: ISS/RS - EVA 54 Antworten

Nur um es in der Chronik festzuhalten. Der Außenbordeinsatz von zwei russischen Kosmonauten auf der ISS ist heute nach zwei Stunden abgebrochen worden, weil einer der Raumanzüge gefährliche Spannungsschwankungen in der Elektrik entwickelt hat.

Zitat
Russian ground controllers ordered International Space Station commander Oleg Artemyev back to the airlock after data showed voltage fluctuations in his spacesuit Wednesday, cutting short a spacewalk to continue outfitting the European Space Agency’s robotic arm delivered to the complex last year.

Artemyev and Denis Matveev, wearing Russian Orlan spacesuits, opened the hatch of the the Poisk airlock module at 9:53 a.m. EDT (1353 GMT) Wednesday to begin a planned six-and-a-half hour spacewalk.

The primary focus of the spacewalk was to continue readying the European Robotic Arm for regular operations. The 37-foot-long (11.3-meter) arm launched last July on Russia’s Nauka multipurpose laboratory module, and joins similar Canadian and Japanese arms outside the space station.

But telemetry from Artemyev’s spacesuit showed a problem in its power system a little more than two hours into the spacewalk. The data indicated the battery-powered suit was experiencing voltage fluctuations, prompting Russian mission control to order Artemyev back to the airlock to plug into the space station’s power supply.

“I have a message, voltage low,” Artemyev radioed Russian ground controllers around 12 p.m. EDT (1600 GMT).
...
The work left incomplete included the relocation of the arm’s external control panel, and testing of a rigidizing mechanism on the arm that will be used to grasp payloads for movement outside the station.

The Canadian and Japanese robotic arms are positioned outside the U.S.-led segment of the space station, while the Russian segment is accessible to the European arm. Like the Canadian robotic arm, the European arm has the ability to “inchworm” between grapple fixtures, or base points, at multiple locations on the space station.

The excursion Wednesday marked the 252nd spacewalk for assembly, maintenance, and upgrades of the International Space Station, and the seventh outside the ISS this year. It was the fourth spacewalk primarily dedicated to preparing the European Robotic Arm for operations.
...
The Russian spacewalk occurred as the U.S. spacesuits on the International Space Station remain unavailable for all but emergency spacewalks. NASA is investigating the cause of a water leak noticed during a March spacewalk using a U.S. spacesuit. Weather permitting, a SpaceX Cargo Dragon spacecraft is set to depart the station as soon as Thursday and splash down off the coast of Florida, returning the leaky suit to Earth for inspections.

SpaceX plans to launch another batch of 53 Starlink internet satellites Friday from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida. A Falcon 9 rocket is set for liftoff at 3:21 p.m. EDT (1921 GMT) to loft the Starlink payloads into orbit. There’s a 50% chance of favorable weather for launch.

The Falcon 9 rocket will head northeast from the Kennedy Space Center, aiming to deliver the flat-packed broadband relay stations to an orbit ranging between 144 miles and 208 miles in altitude (232-by-336 kilometers). Deployment of the 53 flat-packed satellites from the Falcon 9’s upper stage will occur about 15 minutes after liftoff.

With Friday’s mission, designated Starlink 4-27, SpaceX will have launched 3,108 Starlink internet satellites, including prototypes and test units no longer in service. The launch Tuesday will mark the 56th SpaceX mission primarily dedicated to hauling Starlink internet satellites into orbit.

NASA Identifies Candidate Regions for Landing Next Americans on Moon

As NASA prepares to send astronauts back to the Moon under Artemis, the agency has identified 13 candidate landing regions near the lunar South Pole. Each region contains multiple potential landing sites for Artemis III, which will be the first of the Artemis missions to bring crew to the lunar surface, including the first woman to set foot on the Moon.

“Selecting these regions means we are one giant leap closer to returning humans to the Moon for the first time since Apollo,” said Mark Kirasich, deputy associate administrator for the Artemis Campaign Development Division at NASA Headquarters in Washington. “When we do, it will be unlike any mission that’s come before as astronauts venture into dark areas previously unexplored by humans and lay the groundwork for future long-term stays.”

NASA identified the following candidate regions for an Artemis III lunar landing:

Faustini Rim A
Peak Near Shackleton
Connecting Ridge
Connecting Ridge Extension
de Gerlache Rim 1
de Gerlache Rim 2
de Gerlache-Kocher Massif
Haworth
Malapert Massif
Leibnitz Beta Plateau
Nobile Rim 1
Nobile Rim 2
Amundsen Rim

Each of these regions is located within six degrees of latitude of the lunar South Pole and, collectively, contain diverse geologic features. Together, the regions provide landing options for all potential Artemis III launch opportunities. Specific landing sites are tightly coupled to the timing of the launch window, so multiple regions ensure flexibility to launch throughout the year.

To select the regions, an agencywide team of scientists and engineers assessed the area near the lunar South Pole using data from NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter and decades of publications and lunar science findings. In addition to considering launch window availability, the team evaluated regions based on their ability to accommodate a safe landing, using criteria including terrain slope, ease of communications with Earth, and lighting conditions.
...
The team identified regions that can fulfill the moonwalk objective by ensuring proximity to permanently shadowed regions, and also factored in other lighting conditions. All 13 regions contain sites that provide continuous access to sunlight throughout a 6.5-day period – the planned duration of the Artemis III surface mission. Access to sunlight is critical for a long-term stay at the Moon because it provides a power source and minimizes temperature variations.

Three mannequins installed on Orion spacecraft for flight around the moon

Three instrumented mannequins strapped into seats on NASA’s Orion spacecraft awaiting liftoff on the first flight of the huge Space Launch System rocket will help engineers evaluate the human experience for future astronauts trips to the moon.

The three mannequins — one wearing an Orion astronaut spacesuit and two others in recumbent passenger seats — were recently installed inside the pressurized cabin of the Orion spacecraft inside the Vehicle Assembly Building at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

They were aboard the Orion capsule on top of the SLS moon rocket when it rolled to the launch pad early Aug. 17 for final countdown preparations. The mannequins are fitted with thousands of sensors to measure acceleration, vibration, and radiation levels throughout the Orion spacecraft’s trip from Earth to the moon and back.
...
The Orion spacecraft will travel past the moon and swing into a distant retrograde orbit with an average distance of more than 43,000 miles (70,000 kilometers) from the lunar surface. At that distance from Earth, the spacecraft will be flying outside the magnetic field that shields the planet from solar and cosmic radiation.
...
Two “co-passengers” are also aboard the Orion spacecraft for the Artemis 1 mission. Two “phantom torsos” are strapped into passenger seats inside the capsule to gather data about the radiation exposure astronauts will encounter on lunar expeditions.

The two female-bodied phantoms, named Helga and Zohar, are made out of epoxy resin. Radiation interact with the resin material in a similar way to how it impacts human bones, tissue and organs, according to Thomas Berger, principal investigator for the phantom torsos at DLR, the German Aerospace Center.

There are more than 10,000 sensors embedded in the phantoms to collect radiation measurements at different parts of the body.

“Besides the difference between a man and a woman when it comes to biological effects, we will differentiate between different body organs, between the brain and the uterus, for example,” said Ramona Gaza, science team lead for the Matroshka AstroRad Radiation Experiment, or MARE, investigation.

NASA begins final preparations for maiden flight of $4.1 billion SLS rocket

By William Harwood

August 22, 2022 / 3:25 PM /

With one week to go until launch, mission managers met Monday to review preparations for the unpiloted maiden flight of NASA's huge $4.1 billion Space Launch System rocket, a 322-foot-tall behemoth the agency is counting on to return American astronauts to the moon.

Assuming no unexpected issues, managers are expected to give the launch team clearance to press ahead toward start of a 46-hour 10-minute countdown at 10:23 a.m. EDT Saturday, setting the stage for blastoff at 8:33 a.m. Monday, the opening of a two-hour window.

#63 RE: Artemis I cubesat rideshares Antworten

Und zur Frage der möglicherweise zu geringen Batteriespannung.

Zitat
The 10 CubeSats hitching a ride to deep space on NASA’s Space Launch System moon rocket promise new discoveries about the moon, space weather, and asteroids. But some of the small spacecraft will launch with their batteries only partially charged after sitting inside the rocket for more than a year.

Folded up for launch, the CubeSats are each the size of a large cereal box. They are stowed inside dispensers mounted on the ring-shaped adapter that sits just below the Orion spacecraft on top of the 322-foot-tall (98-meter) SLS moon rocket.
...
The Orion spacecraft will deploy from the SLS upper stage a little more than two hours after liftoff, then the CubeSats will separate from the upper stage one-by-one over the next few hours.

The 10 rideshare payloads are stowed inside deployers on the Orion Stage Adapter, the interface that connects the SLS moon rocket with the Orion spacecraft. The adapter was stacked on the Space Launch System last October inside the Vehicle Assembly Building at Kennedy.

The CubeSats themselves were packed inside their deployers before then. Nine of the spacecraft were installed on the adapter last July, and the final ridehsare payload was added in September.

At that time, the launch of the Artemis 1 mission was expected in late 2021 or early 2022. It turned out that the launch delayed another half-year or more, with the target liftoff date now set for Aug. 29.

The delays caused some officials to worry about the battery charge on the CubeSats. Five of the 10 secondary payloads had their batteries recharged, while the others were not topped off due to design and access constraints. In at least one case, mission officials chose not to recharge a CubeSat’s battery.

“There were several that had the capability of being recharged, and then there were several that simply did not have that capability once we are stacked,” Bleacher said. “At this point, it’s difficult to apply any more charge to those CubeSats. So we’re trying to work through preparations and get the SLS ready to fly. That’s the best thing that we can do at this point.

“We are at the point where we’re getting ready to fly,” said Mike Sarafin, NASA’s Artemis 1 mission manager. “The remainder of those CubeSats, based on analyses we believe have sufficient charge to conduct a mission. Some may actually need to recharge after they’re deployed, after they gain some solar power through their solar arrays. But we believe each of these have a mission.

“That said, the CubeSats are relatively low cost,” Sarafin said. “They have relatively low levels of redundancy and a relatively high failure rate, so we do anticipate one or more of these CubeSats to not be successful in its mission just due to the nature of the CubeSats themselves.”



https://spaceflightnow.com/2022/08/23/cu...-in-deep-space/

Zitat
“All the CubeSats are in a slightly different situation,” he said. “But for LunaH-Map, I think we should be okay with the launch coming up.”

The managers in charge of the Team Miles mission believe their spacecraft is in good shape. That CubeSat’s batteries are about 85% charged, according to Wesley Faler, leader of the Team Miles mission.

“We had an opportunity to charge, but we opted out of it,” Faler said. “There’s such a low discharge rate on our batteries that we figured why rock the boat and introduce introduce the variable of recharging.”



Die vier CubeSats, deren Batterien währen des letzten Aufenthalts in VAB nicht aufgeladen worden sind, sind:
- Lunar IceCube
- LunaH-Map
- LunIR
- Team Miles

Team Assessing Lightning Strikes to Towers at Launch Pad

As the Artemis I countdown progresses, rain and thunderstorms have continued throughout the afternoon at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Earlier this afternoon, there were three lightning strikes to the lightning protection system towers at Launch Pad 39B – a strike to Tower 1, and two strikes to Tower 2. Initial indications are that the strikes were of low magnitude. A weather team has begun an assessment that includes collecting voltage and current data, as well as imagery. The data will be shared with a team of experts on electromagnetic environment efforts who will determine if any constraints on vehicle or ground systems were violated. Engineers will conduct a walkdown at the pad tonight, and if needed, conduct additional assessments with subsystems experts.

Overnight, engineers also will conduct preparations on the umbilicals, power up the core stage, and begin charging the Orion and Space Launch System core stage batteries.

The lightning protection system at the launch pad includes three 600-foot-tall towers and catenary wires positioned to protect the rocket, spacecraft, and mobile launcher. The wires run to the ground almost diagonally, steering the lightning current away from the rocket.

Interesting note from the SLS briefing this morning. If the count reaches main engine ignition, at T-6.8 seconds, and there is a scrub for any reason they will not be able to recycle. Rocket will need to go back to VAB for an engine swap.

Why is this? Because after engine ignition there are a bunch of inspections needed before firing them again. Easier to swap out RS-25s. Working with hydrogen is hard.

Updated Artemis 1 launch forecast for Monday shows an 80% chance of acceptable weather at the start of the window, declining to 60% by the end. https://patrick.spaceforce.mil/Portals/1...-kswqYxig%3d%3d

Jeff Spaulding, Artemis 1 senior NASA test director, says at a briefing this morning that the vehicle looks good after lightning strikes yesterday afternoon.

Melody Lovin, SLD 45 weather officer, says a forecast for the backup Sept. 2 date will be available Monday if needed. Likely will depend on evolution of tropical systems.

Spaulding: only thing looking at this morning is helium supply pressure being a little low, but within the band for supporting a launch. Vendor coming out this morning to check it out.

For those keeping times down to the second, the launch window tomorrow opens at exactly 8:33:00 am EDT.

NASA’s LunaH-Map (Lunar Polar Hydrogen Mapper) mission, a briefcase-sized lunar orbiter that launched as a ride share on NASA’s Artemis I mission last year, has ceased operations after successfully demonstrating its neutron spectrometer can detect water and ice at the lunar surface.

The LunaH-Map CubeSat was designed to map ice deposits across the Moon’s South Pole as part of NASA’s SIMPLEx (Small Innovative Missions for Planetary Exploration) program. It performed a flyby of the Moon shortly after its Nov. 16, 2022, launch on the Space Launch System rocket, but challenges with the spacecraft’s thruster valve prevented it from adjusting course to achieve its planned science orbit around the lunar South Pole. This ambitious orbit was designed to take measurements from altitudes as low as 6.2 miles (10 kilometers), including over the permanently shadowed regions of the Moon.

This ambitious orbit was designed to take measurements from altitudes as low as 6.2 miles (10 kilometers), including over the permanently shadowed regions of the Moon.

In late November, the mission team concluded the propulsion system’s valve was partially stuck. The team then embarked on a six-month effort to repeatedly heat the valve in order to free it and allow for ignition. In late May, it was determined these attempts were unsuccessful and mission operations ceased. The spacecraft’s trajectory will evolve into a stable orbit around the Sun, and the LunaH-Map mission and science team will continue to work on data reduction and publishing scientific results.

During the lunar flyby in November, LunaH-Map’s neutron spectrometer, which was developed and built for this mission by Arizona State University in Tempe, collected nearly three hours of data from the Moon’s surface from a distance of about 800 miles (1300 kilometers). The spectrometer’s rate of neutron detections demonstrated that this instrument can function in the lunar environment and identify enrichments of ice as deep as 3.3 feet (one meter) below the soil.

#73 RE: Artemis 3 Antworten

Ich will nicht unken, aber wenn es zu erheblichen Verzögerungen kommen sollte, dann gab es gestern die erste offizielle Ankündigung, daß der Mondlandetermin Ende Dezember 2025 gerissen werden könnte.

Zitat von 'NASA weighs changes to Artemis 3 if key elements are delayed'
LOGAN, Utah — NASA has left the door open for changing the scope of Artemis 3, currently set to be the first crewed lunar landing of the program, if key elements suffer major delays.

Speaking at an Aug. 8 briefing at the Kennedy Space Center, Jim Free, NASA associate administrator for exploration systems development, said the Artemis 3 mission still has a formal launch date of December 2025 but that he was monitoring potential delays in hardware needed for the mission.

“We may end up flying a different mission if that’s the case,” he said. “If we have these big slips out, we’ve looked at if can we do other missions.” Artemis 3 could also change based on the outcome of Artemis 2, he added.
...
Free did not discuss what specifically might trigger changing Artemis 3. However, in a June presentation to a pair of National Academies committees, he expressed concern about the progress SpaceX was making on its Starship vehicle, including the lunar lander version that will be used on Artemis 3. He said then that Artemis 3 “probably” would slip to 2026 because of problems SpaceX has had on Starship.

Free said at the KSC event that NASA received an “updated schedule” for Starship development from SpaceX during a briefing a couple weeks ago at the company’s Starbase test facility in Texas. He did not disclose the contents of that schedule but said that NASA would update its plans in the near future “after we have some time to digest it.”
...
Artemis 2 progress
The briefing coincided with a visit to KSC by the four-person Artemis 2 crew, who saw for the first time the Orion spacecraft that is being assembled for their mission.

Free said that the launch of Artemis 2 remains officially scheduled for late November 2024. However, he said there is “a number of weeks of risk” to that date, with the Orion crew module assembly and testing the critical path on that schedule.

NASA is also working to complete investigations into outstanding issues from the uncrewed Artemis 1 test flight last year, such as problems with electronics on the service module and the Orion capsule’s heat shield, which ablated more than expected on reentry.

The heat shield “is definitely the biggest open issue” from Artemis 1, Free said. Engineers are still working to determine the root cause of the heat shield’s performance, including tests in an arcjet chamber that simulates reentry conditions. “We have some ideas on what that root cause might be,” he said, but didn’t discuss them.
