In the US, the launch of the Antares rocket with a cargo spaceship was canceled two minutes before launch


The American company Northrop Grumman commented on the situation with the failed launch of the Antares launch vehicle. The point is that less than a couple of minutes before the launch of the rocket, which was supposed to put into orbit the cargo spacecraft Cygnus-13 for its subsequent docking with the ISS, this very launch was canceled.


The aforementioned American company stated that the launch was forced to be canceled due to malfunctions in the ground handling equipment of the cosmodrome. According to some reports, problems arose with the power supply of the system installed on the launch pad.

It is known that the spacecraft Cygnus-13 was supposed to deliver about 2,4 tons of various cargoes onboard the ISS, including 1,6 tons of equipment.

At this point, there is no data on how long the launch of the Antares rocket was postponed due to an emergency. It is noted that in the next two days the launch will not take place precisely due to the complicated weather conditions in the area of ​​the launch pad location. At the same time, NASA noted that perhaps some of the cargo on board will have to be replaced.

    If you decide to replace part of the cargo, it is clear that the start can be seriously delayed. Again, what kind of perishable goods for space, which due to the delay have to be replaced!? what

      Bioexperiments for example. Which in 3 days will fade. Fresh fruits and perishable snacks - which in 3 days will become partially unusable. Nobody needs massive diarrhea and bruising at the station.

      "Antares", as far as I remember, is a Russian-Ukrainian rocket with little American involvement, the Russian RD-181 are at the first stage, designed and manufactured by Ukraine, the Americans will connect the first, second stage and the upper stage, Rogozin, I think, is satisfied, to engines no complaints, and Ukraine is also happy

In general, this is such a Russian-Ukrainian-American-European missile laughing .

        And what is the task of the media - to be joyful or adequately reflect reality? Over the beginning of the year, SpaceX successfully completed all the manned spacecraft tests required for NASA certification, and became the operator of the largest satellite constellation among all space companies and states. And when only the postponement of the start of Antares is covered from the news flow, the picture of reality reflected in this way will be clearly inadequate.

              There is no censorship, but there is an editorial policy.

      spacex has already launched 2 times for 60 satellites, no, how so?

      Nowadays, some satellites weigh several kilograms. And they are already being launched, all and sundry, almost in the "circles of young technicians." Private corporations involved in putting small-sized cargo into orbit are already a dime a dozen. So, if spacex decides to put 1000 satellites into orbit in one fell swoop, it will be counted as a record. The reverse process, the transition of qualitative changes to quantitative ones, so to speak. laughing

            Today "Zafar" satellite launch failed. Like many scientific projects, Failure happened.
            But We're UNSTOPPABLE! We have more Upcoming Great Iranian Satellites!





            Already the third unsuccessful (out of three) attempt with this new launch vehicle. It seems they have 4 ready (they are made in pairs at the factory). But they are unlikely to fly before the summer.

            Estimated 350kg per 500km. This flight was 113kg cubsat.

            Well, for the sake of justice, Proton has not been decommissioned yet, since the mass production of replacing it - the heavy Angara-5 (-5, -5M, 5V and 5P) in Omsk has not yet been established and is not ready to start on Vostochny ... And the rest, all right.
            I would also add that according to the assessment made by the Audit Office of the US Congress, the cost of removing 1 kg of Mon Proton-M and Falcon -9 Block 5 (the latest version of the Falcon, which is no longer planned to be upgraded - at the request of the Mask himself) is EQUAL. Soviet designers of the last century created unique technical solutions, which so far remain unsurpassed by the criterion of "cost-effectiveness" and in a number of other parameters ...

    noted that perhaps some of the cargo on board will have to be replaced
    This is how, let me ask? What does the cargo intended for the ISS have to do with ground equipment failures? Or are they carrying something perishable there, souring milk? In addition, as far as I know, the packaging of cargo in a transport ship begins, months before the scheduled launch. Everything needs to be packed, laid out, secured, checked the weight distribution, checked again, set the ship on the carrier (which is not done on the launch pad). Then install the media at the start, once again check everything a thousand. And then replace the load. It’s like getting into a glove compartment in a car. Although, maybe I don’t understand something.

      Well loaded bacteria, insects on bioexperiment. For 3 days, they are all. They need to be changed.

      They loaded different fruits - for 3 days they stand on the ground and get supported. Not fatal, but why take it into space ??? Moreover, they will not be devoured in one day.

      We downloaded delicious cakes - again, in three days, it will not be the same, with the possibility of poisoning the entire crew.

          The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) will continue to purchase space on Russian Soyuz spacecraft to deliver its astronauts to the International Space Station (ISS) until the United States has its own ships. This is stated in the NASA reference material circulated on Monday for the draft US federal budget for fiscal year 2021. 2020 fiscal year ends in the United States on September 30.

          “NASA is in the process of moving from procurement of space for crew delivery to the ISS from the Russian state corporation Roscosmos to their acquisition from commercial suppliers Boeing and SpaceX,” the document says. “The delivery of crews is currently carried out using Russian Soyuz ships. NASA will continue to acquire seats at Soyuz to deliver crews until its own delivery vehicles are available, ”the article emphasizes.
          I understand that it’s fashionable to kick Rogozin, but I'm sorry, you just don’t know, the decision at NASA was made - and this was reported back in mid-February 2020.

If commercial crew delivery services (Boeing and SpaceX - approx. TASS) are not available by March 2020, NASA will have only one crew member in the ISS US segment. NASA is considering the possibility of concluding a contract with Roscosmos for the purchase of one additional seat on Soyuz and related services in order to ensure a stable crew presence until our own crew delivery services appear, ”the document says.

      Well, Dragon has all the check checks - Musk says in the spring, NASA in the summer. But NASA does not want to put one horse ahead of the other. Therefore, you have to wait for the Boeing.

      Boeing - at first they bravely stated that they were able to test all the necessary moments during an emergency flight by heroic efforts. And Jim confirmed that the next manned. NASA permits. But now, apparently, all the data has been decrypted and NASA seems to be insisting on a re-launch. If it is, then the manned one flies off at the end of the year - 1Q 2021. Just by the readiness of the ship.

              How many MLM, Lunaglob, Angara, etc. are already delayed there?

                Understood ... Again "breakfast" from the addict. And space delays are a common occurrence ... When it comes to NASA, and especially a drug addict tried for fraud. If we are talking about Roscosmos - the case ceases to be ordinary.
                By the way. and Starship, hand-welded without a slipway (manual welding even on pipelines is forbidden), beaten off by a hammer and successfully exploded for these reasons - is this also a “common thing”?

                        My friend, not a tooth in the foot, which is overwhelming, but unequivocally, by name - an outlier. But to assemble a spaceship in the open air and without a slipway. cooking it normally by hand is an addiction.
                        Guess with three attempts, why are they collected not just on a slipway, but under sterile conditions? The FIG pipe, a hundred meters under water, couldn’t even dream of such pressure with temperatures, and the hair, which even burns out in welding, can already give a thrush in space)))

                        Yes, with rockets and sterility, everything is clear and no brainer, we were talking about main pipelines and manual welding, you yourself have hinted at the ban on manual welding. Any welding seam undergoes at least two ultrasound examinations and radiology, so that, as you put it, “addicts and convicts” do not do things and all highlighted jambs are again eliminated manually, even seams made automatically. I’ll tell you a secret that even zarobitchans are attracted to manual welding of gas pipelines, by the way they are also good specialists in this matter. So do not tell anyone else about the prohibition of manual welding, otherwise this knowledge causes a smile among knowledgeable people.

    the start will not take place precisely because of the complicated weather conditions in the area of ​​the launch pad location. ........ the excuse is somehow ridiculous, some kind of nuclear ICBMs and will wait for the weather sadly looking at the growing mushrooms on their territory, they would say honestly that they slapped the launch window, and did not calculate the new window because a couple of megabytes oil, therefore some of the cargo must be replaced, since the products that the astronauts had to gobble up immediately do not have preservatives. it’s business, and then some absurdity worthy of exclusivity

    I don’t understand how articles are written here, they talked about this small event, but about the fact that at the beginning of the year spacex already launched 2 times 60 satellites, no, how so?

    And what happened there, that we will suck this lack of action for so long? If you launch burnt matches, then not dozens of satellites can be considered, but thousands at once. Discuss better the successful launch of Falcon for the tenth time with an inter-start interval of 24 hours. And not in promises, but in kind. Or the victorious launch of the next car of this rogue on Proxima Centauri.

    A single-cell boob does not understand that to robot ONE production is to increase the cost of production by a factor of XNUMX. First, you need to create a robot.

      Victor, sectarians do not need knowledge and arguments, they are replaced by FAITH ... Musk declared that the low price for Falcon launches is set due to the reusable use of the first stages of the Falcons ... BUT ... the set parameters of reusability are NOT REACHED (neither by quantity the use of steps, neither by the frequency nor timing of ground maintenance of steps - it was planned to use ten times and 24 hours for after-flight maintenance of the first steps - NOT ACHIEVED AND TO THIS DAY) - but nonetheless, the cost of Falco launches new, calculated according to these reusability standards and established several years ago, WHY SOMETIMES remains unchanged) ...
      The demonstration by the sectarians of bouncing tin models among the puddles in Boca Chica (which Musk calls the “PROTOTYPE MAKET”) clearly indicates that the gifts and stash received from NASA at the time thanks to the patronage and support of Dr. M. Griffin, and the project Starlink is needed in order to at least somehow stay afloat ... because the "prototype models" will bounce indefinitely ... and not the fact that sometime they will be technically feasible, but if they are, they are unlikely to prove their vitality and economic yu efficiency - as it has been with the program MTX "Space Shuttle" and still unachieved performance reusability and cost effectiveness of CBC series Falcon 9 and Falcon Heavy ...
      So for now, the main source of income for Mask is the implementation of launches under the state programs of NASA and, especially, the Pentagon ... the income from commercial launches is minuscule ...
      All the stories about Space X's rampant capitalization are smacked of grand bluffs, so Space X remains just a PRIVATE company NOT OBLIGATED TO PUBLISH INFORMATION ABOUT THE STATUS OF FINANCIAL INDICATORS ...

    The proton, already taken out of operation, was withdrawing 21 tons. So what? Caught up with what has already been abandoned, and developed 60 years ago. The first launch is July 1967. 423 launches. However, a long run yet .....

    Well, for the sake of justice, Proton has not been decommissioned yet, since the mass production of replacing it - the heavy Angara-5 (-5, -5M, 5V and 5P) in Omsk has not yet been established and is not ready to start on Vostochny ... And the rest, all right.
    I would also add that according to the assessment made by the Audit Office of the US Congress, the cost of removing 1 kg of Mon Proton-M and Falcon -9 Block 5 (the latest version of the Falcon, which is no longer planned to be upgraded - at the request of the Mask himself) is EQUAL. Soviet designers of the last century created unique technical solutions, which so far remain unsurpassed by the criterion of "cost-effectiveness" and in a number of other parameters ...

    Personally, I do not believe in any economic comparisons of our machines. Everything is written with a pitchfork on the water. For example, we withdraw cargoes, especially in the recent past as a monopolist, which, of course, shows the true prices to put it mildly ..... Next. Billion advances Mask in its development, and “negotiated” prices with its main issuer. Can you trust these numbers? Can it not be here that extremely oppressive conditions for the repayment of advances can be laid?
