This week, Virgin Galactic will send several private astronauts to the edge of space and Russia will send a spacecraft to the Lunar south pole. There are many other launches coming this week too.
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.
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.
NASA is set to launch its historic Artemis I mission today. We will see the launch of the massive Space Launch System (SLS) rocket and the Orion spacecraft will begin its journey to the Moon.
NASA will launch its Artemis I mission this week, the first in a long line of missions to return to the Moon. SpaceX will launch more Starlink satellites, and Blue Origin will ferry NASA satellites.
We have some interesting launches due this week. Not only will Blue Origin send more tourists to the edge of space, but South Korea will send its first lunar mission to the Moon with SpaceX's help.
This week, Rocket Lab will reattempt to launch NASA's CAPSTONE mission and there's a slim possibility we could see the first launch of SpaceX's Super Heavy rocket carrying Starship.
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.
NASA may launch its first Artemis unmanned test flight in February 2022. It will be an important step in the space agency's goal of returning to the moon by the end of this decade.
In a letter to NASA's Administrator, Bill Nelson, Jeff Bezos has offered to waive off payments of up to $2 billion. He believes this will enable NASA to embrace "dual-source" strategy.
NASA has announced it'll carry out the final Green Run test for the SLS' core stage. This will be the final core stage test before Artemis I in November which will integrate SLS and Orion.
SpaceX has finally managed to land a Starship rocket, however, several minutes after, the vehicle exploded due to a fire which managed to reach the propellant which subsequently ignited.
Rocket Lab has announced plans for its upcoming Neutron rocket which will deliver larger satellites to space, go to other planets and launch with human crews. Neutron will be partially reusable too.
Japan will develop components for the Lunar Gateway's International Habitation (I-Hab) module. The I-Hab module is currently slated to be sent to space in 2026, two years after Gateway's launch.
If the mission is successful, China will become only the third country to collect and bring back rock samples from the Moon to the Earth—a feat that has not been attempted for the past four decades.
NASA has found water on the Moon's sunlit surface using a flying observatory known as SOFIA. It raises questions about how the water is arriving there in the first place and how it's stored.
Finland's Nokia has been selected by NASA to build the first cellular network on the Moon. The network is expected to be installed in late 2022 with the help of a private spacecraft design firm.
Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd (SSTL) has revealed its Lunar Pathfinder mission which will give lunar missions affordable communications satellite. NASA is one expected user of the Lunar Pathfinder.
ISRO has announced that it has carried out Chandrayaan-2's Lunar Orbit Insertion, preparing it for the lander's separation and eventual landing on September 7. The work took almost 29 minutes.
India's ISRO has successfully launched its Chandrayaan-2 mission from its Sriharikota space centre. If all goes to plan, India will be the fourth country to do a soft landing on the Moon.
China has taken photos of cotton seeds sprouting in a contained environment on the Moon. This marks the first time any kind of biological life has been grown on Earth's only natural satellite.
SpaceX is set to shed about 600 jobs in order to become leaner and adapt itself to be better prepared for the future. It will help those laid off find new work and pay them for at least eight weeks.
China has become the first country to land a spacecraft on the far-side of the Moon. In order to communicate with Earth, a satellite is relaying data from Chang'e 4, back to Earth.
China has launched a new relay satellite into the second Lagrangian of the Earth-Moon system. It will send data between the Chang'e 4 rover, due for launch this year, and the Earth.
Elon Musk's goals for the BFR system are clear, he wants nothing short of making humanity a multiplanet species; with a moon base, a manned mission to Mars in 2024, and rocket-trips around Earth too.
The Deep-Space Gateway is a planned moon-orbital outpost that a number of national space agencies will be working on. The Russians are set to announce that they will now be joining the project.
The Russian and Chinese governments are set to sign a new deal pertaining to space exploration in October. The agreement will cover matters such as lunar and deep space exploration.
Elon Musk has taken to Instagram to post a new picture of a working spacesuit. The spacesuit combines a cool design with functionality - features that Musk described as "incredibly hard to balance."
The head of Roscosmos has stated that he hopes to see the number of space launches from the Vostochny Cosmodrome double in 2018. The Luna-Glob missions are expected to begin launching there in 2019.
A team of scientists studied data from two Apollo missions and the Chandrayaan-1 spacecraft and found evidence of water in almost every single lunar deposit that was a result of a volcanic eruption.
Five projects involved with the Google Lunar XPrize have been given the OK to launch their projects to the Moon this year. As part of the competition projects must be launched by December 31, 2017.
It may already be the end of the line for China's first moon rover, as it hits serious mechanical problems after less than two months of operation. Is China now out of the space race?
