We have several rocket launches coming up this week. The most notable is Rocket Lab's Electron rocket which will be carrying a satellite for Astroscale which will assist in clearing space debris.
Rocket Lab to launch junk removal satellite for Astroscale
We have quite a lot of missions coming up this week. Possibly the most interesting is a Cygnus resupply mission to the International Space Station which will help sustain astronauts in space.
We don't have much happening This Week in Rocket Launches, but among those that are happening, some interesting satellites are going to space that will track troublesome space debris.
We have several launches this week but perhaps the most interesting is Northrop Grumman's launch of its Antares rocket. It will be launching the Cygnus cargo craft to the ISS on a resupply mission.
This Week in Rocket Launches we have three rockets scheduled to take off from China, India, and New Zealand. They will all be carrying synthetic-aperture radar observation satellites.
We have a number of launches upcoming this week but the most interesting among them is ISRO's lunar lander mission, Chandrayaan 3. It will go to space on an LVM3 rocket and replaces Chandrayaan 2.
It's quieter this week than last for rocket launches. We have three lined up from Rocket Lab, Relativity Space, and SpaceX. We also have a big recap section following a very busy week.
SpaceX is going to launch some new Starlink satellites that will have an anti-reflective coating. This could help address concerns that astronomers have raised about the proliferation of satellites.
There are several launches planned for this week. Among them is a private mission to the Moon that was originally scheduled for last week but got delayed. There's also a recap of this week's launches.
This week, ABL Space Systems, a private American company, is set to launch its RS1 rocket for the first time. It's designed to be a simple rocket that can be launched at short notice.
WhatsApp has announced that its new app for Windows is now live. It ditches the web-based Electron framework in favor of Windows-native Universal Windows Platform (UWP) technologies.
This week we have a very exciting mission scheduled to take off. Rocket Lab will launch an Electron rocket carrying NASA's CAPSTONE CubeSat to the Moon to test the orbit of an upcoming space station.
We have three rocket launches scheduled for this week. The first is from Rocket Lab and the other two are from SpaceX which is sending two groups of Starlink satellites into orbit on Falcon 9 rockets.
In the upcoming week, SpaceX is going to take several astronauts up to the space station for NASA as part of the commercial crew program. It was meant to launch last week but got delayed.
Rocket Lab will use a helicopter to catch the first stage of its Electron rocket in a mission later this week. It's an alternative method of reusing rocket parts which should reduce costs.
It appears that the WhatsApp Desktop app available via the Microsoft Store is about to get a Windows 11 makeover soon. The development team has reportedly transitioned to WinUI 2.6 for this purpose.
The new WhatsApp for Windows 10 and 11, which was spotted earlier today, can already be downloaded and tried out, if it works. The app is still in beta and is apparently based on the UWP framework.
There will be two launches in the upcoming week. Arianespace will launch satellites for the French military while Rocket Lab will use its Electron rocket to put two BlackSky satellites in orbit.
As a part of its commitment to U.S. President Joe Biden, Google has joined hands with the Open Source Technology Improvement Fund (OSTIF) to manage security priorities and fix flaws in eight projects.
The next week will feature an interesting launch from Blue Origin, the firm owned by Amazon's Jeff Bezos. Astronauts will practice getting aboard the craft ready for a crewed mission in the future.
Rocket Lab has signed a new deal with BlackSky which will see it launch nine satellites for the company across five launches. It comes after a BlackSky satellite was launched by the firm this week.
SpaceX is planning to launch its Starship SN11 sometime this week. The firm still hasn't performed a perfect landing of the craft but it has been improving its technique after each test.
In the upcoming week, we have several rocket launches due. The most interesting will be the maiden flight of Firefly Aerospace's Alpha rocket which is launching from Vandenberg AFB.
There are four planned rocket launches this week, two from SpaceX, one from Rocket Lab, and another from the Chinese National Space Administration. Rocket Lab's mission was delayed from last week.
There are three rocket launches expected this week. Rocket Lab is launching several satellites, Iran is re-attempting to launch its Pars 1 satellite, and SpaceX will try to land Starship SN10.
The Electron rocket experienced unexpected stress during Max-Q causing a total loss of the rocket and all seven payloads, including Earth-imaging satellites by Canon and Planet, that were on board.
Electron-based apps that set themselves as the default handler for any protocol in Windows can be exploited due to a critical vulnerability that has been disclosed. It includes Skype, Slack and more.
Skype for Linux has received another update with various bug fixes and a couple of new features related to auto-starting the app on boot and controls for the behavior of the app once started.
Google announced the controversial decision to kill Chrome apps on every platform other than ChromeOS, but your hard work might be saved with a package that turns Chrome apps into Electron apps.
