Hello friends, today we are back with another engineering department. We will cover three updates today. We all know that the SpaceX starship experienced some engine issues during the static fire test last week, but the good news is that they made a quick recovery.
So given the SN9, it is likely to be launched this week and both these engines are working properly during the static fire test. Meanwhile, although far less accurate, the starship prototype SN9 is preparing for a fifth static fire attempt, which – if successful – could take place just a day or two before the high-altitude launch attempt. With the renovation of the tank farm and the closure of the associated roads, SN9 began to purchase fuel. Double ventilation properties were not seen after the first firing. According to Elon Musk’s Twitter account: “Today at SpaceX is about practicing the starship engine. Two have started to try the third.
“This indicates that the” fast refueling and reuse “test will be conducted as part of the overall operational design of the starship. Construction of the starship at least three times a day, according to Elon Musk’s statement last year The flight was carried out. For tests 2 and 3. One of the three vents was closed, indicating that it was decommissioned. All of this was observed and checked twice, including the vents in the vehicles. Were starting to emit steam from behind. About T-12 minutes. “Three steady fires.” According to Elon Musk. Complete & amp; No RUD. Detection & amp; Now Inspected. “Hop In & amp; Go to Mars! “Is the target,” so this explains why one of the engines did not fire in the second test. SN44 had an unknown problem during the first test. Later, the investigation requires “two of the engines require minor repairs.”, That’s why it will be shut down.
“Musk tweeted,” While the feeling of delay in the launch for weeks is clear, we got the good news then. Millie when the new rappers were given the title to launch. Pad for swap action. The SN44 was the first engine to be replaced with a second engine. Currently, the starship SN9 has three. SpaceX is still required to conduct a solid static fire test before confirming any launch date. The normal police siren is still the most appropriate clue to confirm pre-ignition. The siren failed one of the fire tests. The intention was to provide a T-10 minute notification; Local officers on time duty may vary; Cover a large area. Song and music. Moving on to our next news based on Virgin Orbit, after arriving in orbit on the second flight of LauncherOne rockets on January 17, 2021, Virgin Group founder Richard Branson said, “What Virgin Orbit thought was impossible to accomplish .
This spectacular flight is the result of years of hard work and will reveal a whole new generation of inventors on the way to orbit. “The launch demo 2 mission, also known as Elana 20, was a NASA mission. Through this mission, ten cubes from eight universities and one NASA headquarters were sent into orbit. These spacecraft were designed to perform many science and technology demonstration missions. Dan Ort, president and CEO of Virgin Orbit, said before the launch: “It is important to note that this is a test launch. Any initial launch of a launch system carries a certain amount of risk.” We look for data Will also be excited and see the first and second stage performance as we are moving step by step. We also know that there is a risk of coming to the last class. We are working diligently and diligently.
To ensure that we have the best frame to reach the classroom. “January 17, 2021, 13:38. Eastern time, Cosmic Girl (Virgin Orbit Boeing 747 aircraft) flew with a LaunchOne rocket from Mojave Air & Space Port, California. At 14:39. Eastern Time Rocket took off from Cosmic Girl. The first stage of “NewtonShree” was under engine ignition for the next three minutes. The first stage “Newtonfour” ignited for about six minutes after the second stage engine broke. The Launcheron rocket fired the “Newtonfour” engine for five seconds. Re-ignited, as it lay dormant in space for thirty-six minutes. Finally, after more than an hour had passed, it was placed in an orbit of five hundred kilometers.
After the completion of the mission by Dan Hart Said, “A new door to space has opened … This effort has paid off today with a well-executed mission, and we couldn’t be more pleased.” Said. Study of Virgin Orbit Launch Procedures To bring in some of the best industry experts from former chief engineers of Atlas and Delta launch vehicles, NASA, the Federal Aviation Administration and the US Shri Air Force also assisted in the investigation of the launch. Virgin Orbit did not mention anything about thThe pre-launch briefing is planning for the next launch. After the launch, they confirmed that they would enter the commercial launch market very soon.
Dan Hart says, “The market has changed a bit, the government has created new opportunities, and we’re very focused on it. We’re really positioned to climb at a steady launch pace.” NASA Insight’s “Mole” eventually ended its journey across the Martian surface as the agency’s years of efforts failed to establish a heat flux probe on the landing craft. Last week, on Thursday, January 14, NASA released a statement saying that the latest attempt to place “mole” on the surface of Mars has not made any progress because the heat probe has not achieved the friction that digs the surface. Is necessary for. . The mole defeated itself to a certain depth which was two or 3 centimeters below the surface and remained at that place. “We’ve given everything we’ve got, but Mars and the hero’s mole are inconsistent. Luckily, we’ve learned a lot that will benefit missions trying to dig underground in the future.” HP3.
The aim was to dig five meters deep. Surface collecting data about the flow of heat from the interior of Mars. A few months after the Insight landed on Mars, Landing Craft delivered the equipment package to the surface. According to reports, the investigation encountered several problems shortly after the hammer run process began. The instrument team later found that this was due to a lack of friction between the probe and the surrounding regolith. Attempts were made to move the instrument’s nest on the surface so that the mole came out of the hole. The team achieved this until attempts to wield additional hammers could proceed. Finally the mole was concluded to be released. Thomas Zurbuchen, deputy director of science, said,
“We are proud of our team working hard to dig up the deep planet of Insight. It was amazing to see them disturbed millions of miles away.” We have been successful in this sense: we have learned a lot that will benefit future missions to Mars and elsewhere, and we thank our German partners at DLR for providing this tool and for their cooperation. “In addition to unsuccessful efforts, NASA has managed to collect critical engineering data for future missions, including drilling missions.” Luckily, we learned a lot that would benefit future missions trying to dig underground.
