In the upcoming week, we'll be getting several satellite launches. Among them will be the launch of two new Galileo satellites and 53 Starlink satellites. There are no manned missions this week.
This week should be interesting for space launches as SpaceX gets NASA's DART probe off the ground. Next year, DART will impact an asteroid satellite known as Dimorphos in an Earth defence test.
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.
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.
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.
