SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket successfully launches Starlink satellites
Hello to everyone. My name is Jesse Anderson. I’m the director of production and engineering here at SpaceX and will be your host for SpaceX’s 59th launch in 2022. Our 197th mission is currently not monitoring any issues with all crews, vehicles or spacecraft, regardless of whether they are in range. We’re moving forward with launch and 32:00 T zero Eastern Time, if you’ve followed, you know that this is Nasa’s swat mission and our third launch in less than 34 hours after the launch of SES 03 B. just 4.5 minutes after yesterday’s mission and take off, we are waiting for the hauler to pull back on and you will first see that the gripper arms just under the hood start to open and after they are fully opened the transport manager or the structure right next to the vehicle will start to move away from the vehicle and here on your screen these grapple arms are now opened and you can see that when they are fully opened they start to retract the T and the Ellos gripper arms begin to fully retract. Turn it on and now you can see your ear, the so-called strong back, which moves away from the vehicle to unlock it. We just heard *** the completion of the first stage lock charge indicating the end of the first stage propellant charge Locks The second stage loading will end at the T -2 minute mark. When this is complete, it will be a fully propellant-filled Falcon nine. You may see some liquid oxygen output. When this *** comes into contact with the warm, humid ambient air, it condenses the air around it. So that’s why you see those white clouds. They’re almost like ***, the second stage comes a cold glass of water that creates condensation in the liquid oxygen charging Page two locks seem complete And there is a call just to confirm that the second stage liquid oxygen charging is now complete. Falcon nine is now fully loaded with 1 million pounds of fuel and liquid oxygen. Yes, initialize closures. The booster you see on your screen now flies for the 15th time *** breaking a record today. Previously, the CRS 21 Transporter has twice supported the crew demo for one and three and nine previous Starlink missions. Reusability allows SpaceX to fly the most expensive parts of the rocket, which lowers the cost of accessing space. Launch And Falcon nine is now in the launch phase. The vehicle will be scheduled to land on our drone ship. Read the instructions today and there you can see it on your screen and now we are waiting for the final confirmation from the launch director And here are all the systems ready to go. Falcon nine, our Starling load T -30 seconds, 15 seconds t minus 10 987654321 engine ready to take off at full power and ready to take off for 4 37 departures 1000 departures. Yes, the Falcon is making its way down through the incredible sights we’ve seen. You can see Falcon 9 take off from Runway 39 to carry our starling payload into space. We’re throttling the engines in preparation for Max Q. Max Q, supersonic maximum Q, is the largest structural load the vehicle will ever see on a hill. Nice Q. There’s an announcement that we’re going through the maX Q. Up next are four events taking place. This will be the MIKO phase separation SCS one followed by the overlay deployment. Miko main engine is disabled and this is where the nine engines you see now burned in the first stage. These will turn off and help slow down the scene. In preparation for stage separation. This will be when the first stage separates from the second stage. The first stage will return to earth and land on our drone ship. Just read the instructions today and the second stage SCS will continue with one or the second stage engine start one, so here we are going to fire up the second stage om rear engine and deploy the cowl halves shortly, the trajectory so far looks nominal and we’re bringing these few things up. Just a few seconds. Talk. Stage separation confirmed. As you may have just seen, thanks to the bearing separation confirmed, we had the Miko cascade separation SCS one, the M rear engine lit on your right screen, and we had the coating distribution. The fairing halves will return to earth and today we will try to save them with our rescue ship Doug. On your left screen you can see the first stage and the first stage grill fins deploy the bermuda signal reception of the first stage grill fins. Both vehicles continue on nominal orbits and large call. Both vehicles look nominal again. The first stage returns to Earth while the second stage has its starling payload attached to it, levitating it to its intended landing orbit. The next first step is input burning. This intake burn will be where three of the nine M one D engines in the vehicle re-ignite. This helps slow the phase as it re-enters Earth’s atmosphere. After the inlet burn *** will be the final burn, which will be the landing burn in the first place. It’s just the *** single engine, the center E-nine engine that helps slow the stage just before it hits the ground for landing. Each of our M1D engines has about 100 and 90,000 lb of thrust at sea level, which is enough thrust to help slow the scene just in time for landing. Now, the login burn I mentioned was a little under two minutes into the first phase. But if you look at your right screen, we see wonderful landscapes there, incredible landscapes with the earth in the background and the sun in the background. On your left screen you have the *** view of the first stage. Again the grille fins open, this helps steer the vehicle as it returns to the landing zone. The first stage vehicle has four hypersonic grille fins just between the inner stage and the top, which help guide the vehicle to the landing zone. You can also see some nitrogen gas blasts there that help with attitude control in the first stage, and we’re about 30 seconds away from the first stage inlet burn. Tier one FTS saved a Tier one entry brand initiative. As you can see, the engines were re-ignited on the first stage H one N 1 shutdown, and with that, the engines shutdown results in the intake combustion, which includes the first stage intake combustion. Today’s mission sign. It is SpaceX’s 197th overall launch and, as mentioned, the 15th flight for this first-stage booster, which has already launched 14 missions and set a new record *** for flight-proven boosters. *** first stage as a reminder. Starlink is the *** satellite Internet constellation designed and manufactured by SpaceX to provide high-speed I-speed, low-latency internet to people living in remote and rural areas around the world. Stage one Landing Burn And there you can see the engine igniting. Let’s watch the Falcon nine land, just read the instructions. Stage one landing confirmed. And there you can see Falcon nine making its 15th landing for this booster. This marks the 58th overall landing of an orbital-class rocket this year. We also heard *** call out for psycho the second engine cut off, and *** good trajectory confirmed. And there you can see that the impactor And second stage is currently carrying 54 starling satellites into low earth orbit. Thank you for joining us today!
SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket successfully launches Starlink satellites
SpaceX delivered 54 Starlink satellites into low Earth orbit this afternoon on a Falcon 9 rocket launched from Kennedy Space Center. Today’s launch made this Falcon 9 first-stage rocket booster record holder with a total of 15 launches. SpaceX successfully conducted first stage of unmanned aerial vehicle About 9 minutes after takeoff Read Instructions in the Atlantic This launch came just after two successful Falcon 9 launches in the past few days. SpaceX launched communications satellites for the SES 03b mPower network from KSC on Friday evening, and launched NASA’s SWOT Mission to survey Earth’s waters Friday morning from Vandenberg Space Force Base in California. The launch can be seen from above.
