SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket successfully launched Starlink satellites
Hello to everybody. My name is Jesse Anderson. I’m *** here at SpaceX, the production and engineering manager, and I’ll be hosting SpaceX’s 59th launch in 2022, our 197th mission over all teams currently tracking no vehicle or spacecraft issues. spin and we continue with T zero at 4:32 EST, if you’ve been watching, you know this is our third launch in less than 34 hours after the launch of NASA’s SWat mission and SES 03 B. Mpower Yesterday’s mission and after liftoff just 4.5 minutes from now we’re waiting for the carrier installer to retract and the first thing you’ll see is the clamp arms just below the marble will start to open and once they’re fully open the transport director or that structure right next to the car will start to retract and there you can see on your screen that those clamp arms have already opened and the T has fully opened and started to retract. open and now you can see what you can say here the ear pulls back from the vehicle to unlock the powerful back. We’ve just heard *** first stage loading is complete, which concludes the first stage thruster loading, and we’ve heard that Locks Loading will be completed at the T -2 minute mark in the second stage. Once that’s done, it will be a fully fueled Falcon 9. You can see the liquid oxygen draining a bit. This condenses the surrounding air upon contact with warm, humid ambient air. That’s why you see those white clouds. They are almost similar to the condensation that forms a *** cold glass of water, the second stage of which is to complete the loading of liquid oxygen. Page two locks are fully visible. Falcon 9 is now fully loaded with 1 million pounds of fuel and liquid oxygen. Yes, enable bindings. The booster you see on your screen now is flying to break the record for the 15th time today. It previously supported the crew demo for CRS 21 Transporter one and three and two anus on nine previous Starlink missions. Reusability allows SpaceX to re-fly the most expensive parts of a rocket, which in turn lowers the cost of space access. Start up And Falcon nine is starting up now. The vehicle will be scheduled to land on our drone. Just read the instructions today and there you can see it on your screen and now we’re just waiting for the final go from the launch director and it’s all systems go. Falcon nine is ready to take off with our starling payload -30 seconds, 15 seconds t minus 10 987654321 engines at full power and 4 37 go 1000 starts. Yes, the Falcon descends with incredible views that we can see. You can see Falcon 9 lift off from pad 39 carrying our starling payload into space. We are tuning the engines in preparation for Max G. Max Q supersonic max. Q is the largest structural load the car will experience on a hill. Nice Q. We shout that we passed the maX Q. The following four events occur. It will be a funing placement in the MIKO stage separation SCS one and then. Miko has cut the main engine and all nine engines you see now have burned out in the first stage. These will close and help slow down the scene. Preparation for stage separation. This is what will happen when the first phase separates from the second phase. The first stage will land and the drone will land on our ship. Just read the instructions today and the second stage SCS will continue with one or two stage engine firings, we fire up the second stage om back engine and shortly after that we’ll put the fairing halves in, so far the trajectory looks nominal and we’re getting to these few events. Just *** a few seconds. To talk. Phase separation confirmed. Thanks, the separation is confirmed as you can just see, we have the Miko stage separation SCS one, the M rear engine on your screen on the right is lit and we have the rivet placement. The halves will return to earth and we will try to recover them today with our recovery ship Doug. You can see the first stage on your left hand screen and you can see that the net fins on the first stage are placing the signal bermuda pickup on the first stage. Both cars continue on nominal trajectories and excellent calling. Both cars look nominal again. The first stage returns to Earth, while the second stage, still with the starling payload attached, lowers it into a targeted orbit. Next up for the first stage is the input burn. This pre-combustion will be where three of the nine M one D engines are re-ignited in the car. This helps slow down the re-entry stage into the Earth’s atmosphere. After entry, there will be a landing burn in the first stage *** there will be a final burn. It’s just a single engine, a central E nine engine that helps slow the stage before touching down for landing. Our M1D engines each have between 100 and 90,000 lb of thrust at sea level, which is enough to help slow the stage during landing. Now, the entry burn I mentioned is less than two minutes in the first stage. But if you look at your right hand screen, we have some awesome views there, an incredible view with the earth in the background and the sun in the background. On the left side of the screen is the view of the first stage ***. Again, mesh fins are deployed, which help control the vehicle as it returns to the landing zone. There are four hypersonic grids between the inner stage and the top of the first stage vehicle, which help guide the vehicle into the landing zone. You can also see some bursts of nitrogen gas in there to help with attitude control in the first stage, and we’re only about 30 seconds away from the first stage inlet burn. In the first stage, FTS saved the start of the first stage entry brand. As you can see, the engines in the first stage are re-ignited H an N 1 is closed, and thus the closing of the engines, which concludes the combustion of the input, includes the combustion of the input in the first stage. Today’s mission. SpaceX’s 197th overall launch, and as previously noted, this is the 15th flight for this first-stage booster, which has previously completed 14 missions and set a new flight record for certified boosters. *** the first stage as a reminder. Starlink is a *** 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 of Earth, flashing in less than 10 seconds upon landing. First stage Landing Burn And there you can see the engine ignite. Let’s see how the Falcon touches the nine, just read the instructions. First stage landing confirmed And there you can see that the Falcon 9 has landed on its 15th landing for this booster. This is our 58th landing this year, 158th total landing of an orbital-class rocket. We also heard the psychological call of the second engine cut off and the confirmation of a good orbit. And you can see there’s a thruster, and the second stage is now carrying 54 starling satellites into low earth orbit. Thank you for joining us today.
SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket successfully launched Starlink satellites
SpaceX launched 54 Starlink satellites into low Earth orbit this afternoon on a Falcon 9 rocket from Kennedy Space Center. The Falcon 9 rocket lifted off from Launch Complex 39A at KSC at 4:32 p.m. Today’s launch made this Falcon 9 booster the record holder for 15 total launches. SpaceX has successfully completed the first stage of an unmanned ship. Read Instructions About 9 minutes after liftoff over the Atlantic Ocean, this launch follows two successful Falcon 9 launches over 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 explore Earth’s waters from Vandenberg Space Force Base in California early Friday morning. Audio can be viewed above.
