Roscosmos space agency will abandon the International Space Station (ISS) to build successor to Mir. It will fulfill its obligations, including delivering NASA astronauts and cargo to the ISS.
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.
Following the week where Russian cosmonauts gave tacit support to Ukraine, we have just one rocket launch, a Roscosmos Soyuz 2.1a that will be carrying Meridian-M satellites for the MoD.
In the next week, Russia will launch three cosmonauts to the International Space Station from the Baikonur Cosmodrome. SpaceX and Astra Space also have unmanned missions planned this week.
Anonymous has posted a tweet claiming that it has shut down Russian Space Agency but Director General Roscosmos asserts the claim is untrue as "space activity control centers are operating normally".
We've finally got a busy week coming up in terms of space launches. Russia, India, SpaceX, and two other private firms will be launching this week. It's also been a year since the TWIRL series began.
There are no launches slated for the upcoming week, however, there are a number of videos in the recap section. The James Webb Space Telescope is also continuing to race ahead to its destination.
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.
In the week beginning October 25, we'll see two missions to the International Space Station. One will be a cargo mission from Russia and the other will be a commercial crewed mission from SpaceX.
It's a quiet week for launches this week but a cosmonaut will lead a mission to the ISS that's carrying a film director and actress to shoot the first feature-length film in space.
In the upcoming week, SpaceX will attempt to launch its Transporter-2 mission, Starsem will orbit 36 OneWeb internet satellites, and Roscosmos will send a cargo mission to the ISS.
Next week could turn out to be quite lively or fairly dull for rocket launches with lots of the launches marked as No Earlier Than. Two missions on Friday, however, will definitely try to launch.
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.
This week, India, SpaceX, Russia, China and Iran are all planning space launches. All of the launches are carrying satellites but for very different purposes from internet delivery to monitoring.
