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.
We've got a busy week in rocket launches due. SpaceX and OneWeb will be launching more internet satellites while United Launch Alliance and Rocket Lab will be deploying various satellites.
We've got yet another quiet week coming up with just two launches taking place. China and Rocket Lab will be launching a host of satellites designed for various tasks. Both will launch on Sunday.
The next week in space launches certainly looks interesting with a manned mission from Roscosmos carrying tourists to the ISS and a manned mission from Blue Origin carrying Alan Shepard's daughter.
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.
The upcoming week of rocket launches is fairly routine, SpaceX is hoping to launch more Starlink satellites and Virgin Galactic could also fly its SpaceShipTwo-class VSS Unity rocketplane.
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.
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.
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.
Paleontologists have reanalyzed the collagen from fossils and determined that Jurassic Park may never exist; Great Barrier Reef bleaching is worse than ever; and NASA's first neutron star mission.
It was the first launch from a private site, and the first from New Zealand, and the first time a rocket was launched using a 3D printed engine, which was also manufactured in just 24 hours.
