Jeszcze jedno nagranie, trochę mniej widowiskowe, z wodowania pierwszego stopnia:

Seán Gillespie@SeanDG Spotted odd cloud from Wellington south coast last night, so quickly timelapsed it. Turns out it was Rocket Lab’s “The Owl’s Night Begins” mission, delivering satellites for a Japanese earth-imaging company.

Rocket Lab closes out year with launch of Synspective’s first radar satellite

(...) The StriX-α satellite is Synspective’s first synthetic aperture radar satellite. The Tokyo-based company, was established in 2018 and developed its satellite technology with aid from the Japanese government.

ynspective says its planned fleet of 30 radar imaging satellites will primarily be for commercial use surveying cities and urban infrastructure. The company says it has raised $100 million from Japanese investors since its founding nearly three years ago.

StriX-α, a demonstrator, is about one-tenth the size of a conventional large radar imaging satellite. Its deployable antenna, which was folded up for launch, measures about 16 feet (5 meters) long.

“Functions, including both observation and data acquisition, will be verified over the next several months,” Synspective said in a statement after Tuesday’s launch.

Synspective is one of several companies planning to build out constellations of radar satellites for Earth-imaging. ICEYE of Finland and California-based Capella Space have already launched multiple small satellites with sophisticated radar payloads.

Satellites with synthetic aperture radar instruments can image Earth’s surface in day and night. Radar imagers can also peer through clouds and storms that block views from optical cameras.

The StriX constellation will have a ground resolution of 1 to 3 meters, or 3 to 10 feet, according to Synspective.

A second StriX satellite, named StriX-β (StriX-Beta), will launch in 2021.

“By 2022, Synspective will launch four commercial satellites, aiming to build and operate a system that enables wide-area, high-frequency ground observation with a constellation of 30 satellites,” the company said in a statement.

Rocket Lab did not attempt to recover the Electron’s first stage Tuesday, following the company’s first successful retrieval of an Electron booster on a previous launch last month. Rocket Lab aims to eventually catch boosters falling under parachutes with a helicopter for refurbishment and reuse.

Rocket Lab plans to resume stage recoveries with the next Electron launch in early 2021.

The launch Tuesday marked the 17th flight of Rocket Lab’s Electron launcher, and the company’s seventh and final mission of 2020, breaking Rocket Lab’s record of six missions in 2019.

Rocket Lab says its plans for 2021 include even more flights, with the company’s first mission from a new launch site at Wallops Island, Virginia, more booster recovery attempts, and the launch of a small NASA satellite to the moon.

Rocket Lab, which carried out its own VCLS launch in December 2018, announced Jan. 5 its next Electron launch. That mission, called “Another One Leaves the Crust” by the company, will launch no earlier than Jan. 16 from its New Zealand launch site.

We had an inclinometer showing some strange data. It’s not used for flight, but we want to understand it all the same. That's part of the beauty of operating our own launch range, we have the luxury of time to roll back out when we're ready.

The Launch Director for today's mission has confirmed we are GO for LOx fill. It's this liquid oxygen that gives Electron its distinctive icy white stripes on launch day.

Wkrótce na Onenui Station ma zostać oddana do użytku kolejna wyrzutnia

Electron will lift off from Pad A at LC-1 today, but very soon we'll have the pick of two pads within the same complex. More pads = more responsive access to space for our customers.
