Kepler Joined to Delta II Rocket

Workers attached the Kepler spacecraft to the top of the Delta II rocket as launch preparations continued on pace for launch currently scheduled for no earlier than March 6 from Launch Pad 17-B at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. The launch complex is equipped with a moveable structure that protects the satellite and rocket as the protective nose section is installed. The Delta II will use nine solid-fueled booster rockets and three stages to lift the Kepler to its place in space where it will watch stars for signs of planets like Earth outside the solar system.

Kepler Launch Review Continues

Today's flight readiness review to officially set a launch date and time for NASA's Kepler telescope has paused and will reconvene at 6 p.m.

A team of engineers is continuing to check the launch vehicle, a United Launch Alliance Delta II, for any shared components with an Orbital Sciences Corp. Taurus rocket that failed last week.

"We haven't been able to indicate much in the way of similarities or commonalities between the two vehicle systems, but they're not done," said NASA spokesman George Diller. "There's still a couple more things they have to cross off."

The launch from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station is expected at 10:49 p.m. Friday, the opening of the first three-minute window.

A second window extends from 11:13 p.m. to 11:16 p.m.

Current weather forecasts show a 90 percent chance of favorable conditions Friday.

Saturday's launch windows, if necessary, are from 10:49 p.m. to to 10:52 p.m., and between 11:17 p.m. and 11:20 p.m., Diller said.

If managers this evening give the go-ahead for a Friday liftoff, fueling of the Delta II's second stage at Launch Complex 17-B would begin Tuesday morning.

The launch was delayed a day to give engineers more time to check out the Delta II's payload fairing system. That's what failed on Taurus XL that launched Feb. 24 from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, keeping a $273.4-million NASA environmental satellite from reaching orbit.

ULA workers fastened the Delta II's fairing around Kepler last week, as shown above.

The $600-million Kepler mission will survey more than 100,000 stars for planets like Earth, trying to determine if they are common or rare.

We'll provide an update on the launch schedule as soon as it's available, probably after 7 p.m.

Launch Blog Concludes with Kepler Success![/size:46684eb468]
Sat, 07 Mar 2009 07:08:34 AM UTC+0200

A Delta II rocket performed perfectly tonight as it lofted the Kepler observatory into space to begin a careful study of 100,000 stars for signs of planets similar to Earth. Check with NASA’s Web site for continuing updates throughout Kepler’s 3.5-year mission. Good night from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida!
Kepler On Its Own
Sat, 07 Mar 2009 07:00:47 AM UTC+0200

The Kepler spacecraft is orbiting by itself 65 minutes after its launch aboard a Delta II rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. The Kepler will go through a commissioning phase of about 60 days during which the telescope’s systems and its instrument will be put through a series of checks before it begins its science mission.

Spacecraft Separation!
Sat, 07 Mar 2009 06:54:54 AM UTC+0200

Cheers have gone up from launch controllers as telemetry confirms the Kepler observatory is on its own and in great health to begin its hunt for planets like Earth. The spacecraft is moving at about 6.6 miles per second, or 23,760 mph and has passed near New Guinea. It will be 950 miles above Earth in about three minutes.

Third Stage Burnout
Sat, 07 Mar 2009 06:49:09 AM UTC+0200

The third stage has used all its solid fuel after about two minutes. It will separate shortly from the Kepler, leaving the observatory on its own.

Third Stage Burning
Sat, 07 Mar 2009 06:47:04 AM UTC+0200

The solid fuel inside the third stage is burning and sending the Kepler spacecraft to an orbit that will soon reach 950 miles above Earth, or three times higher than the International Space Station.

Second Stage Separates
Sat, 07 Mar 2009 06:45:41 AM UTC+0200

The second stage of the Delta II rocket has separated from the Kepler spacecraft and the third stage of the rocket.

Second Stage Ignites
Sat, 07 Mar 2009 06:43:52 AM UTC+0200

The second stage has re-ignited on schedule to lift the Kepler spacecraft higher. This burn will last a little more than a minute, then the second stage will fall away and the third stage will light. The firing will speed up the spacecraft to more than 18,500 mph.

Kepler Coasting
Sat, 07 Mar 2009 06:04:18 AM UTC+0200

The Kepler spacecraft is 117 miles above Earth passing between tracking stations. As planned launch controllers are not receiving any direct signals from the spacecraft and rocket, but there were no signs of trouble as the spacecraft passed out of range of the instruments at a site in Antigua in the South Atlantic. The cruise phase will last about 43 minutes.

Sat, 07 Mar 2009 06:00:18 AM UTC+0200

The second stage engine has turned off as planned. The Kepler, along with the second and third stages, will coast for about 43 minutes before the second stage re-ignites to boost the observatory higher. The spacecraft is traveling faster than 17,000 mph during this coast and it is already in orbit around Earth. The next series of thrusts by the second and third stages will speed the spacecraft up enough to put Kepler in an orbit of its own around the sun.

Second Stage Ignites
Sat, 07 Mar 2009 05:55:22 AM UTC+0200

The second stage is burning as planned. Launch controllers report no problems.

Sat, 07 Mar 2009 05:54:37 AM UTC+0200

The first stage engine has cut off as planned. Explosive bolts will fire and the lone stage will fall back to Earth so the second stage can ignite to propel the Kepler higher. The Delta II is 68 miles up and going faster than 13,500 mph.

Last Boosters Fall Away
Sat, 07 Mar 2009 05:52:44 AM UTC+0200

The final three boosters have fallen away from the Delta II rocket and the first stage continues to perform as called for. It will fire for about two more minutes before it is jettisoned. The rocket is going 5,425 mph and is more than 30 miles above the planet.

Boosters separate
Sat, 07 Mar 2009 05:52:06 AM UTC+0200

The three air-lit boosters are firing and the six boosters that fired at liftoff have been jettisoned. No problems reported as Kepler climbs skyward. The rocket is traveling at 2,181 mph and is more than 10 miles above Earth.

Mach 1
Sat, 07 Mar 2009 05:51:28 AM UTC+0200

33 seconds after liftoff and the Delta II rocket has surpassed Mach 1. The first stage engine and boosters are firing as planned. Six of the nine boosters will fall away momentarily and the three remaining will be ignited.

Sat, 07 Mar 2009 05:50:55 AM UTC+0200

Kepler is launched "on a search for planets in some way like our own."

Траекторию аппарата ни кто не подскажет?
Россия больше чем Плутон.
на гелиоцентрическую орбиту выйдет.

А так спросите у Salo-он много знает
Практически как у "Спитцера": 1.00 х 1.02 а.е. с наклонением ~1° и периодом 372.5 сут.

а какие участки неба будут наблюдаться?
Россия больше чем Плутон.
Область т.н. спирального рукава Ориона - в проекции на небесную сферу это район Лебедя-Лиры.

Аппарат Kepler, созданный американский аэрокосмическим агентством (NASA), оборудован мощным телескопом, который и должен будет обозревать далекие от Земли планеты.
Основные поиски будут вестись в созвездиях Лиры и Лебедя, которые находятся на расстоянии 3000 световых миль от Земли. Обнаружить там пока удалось около 300 планет, но в основном они похожи на Юпитер. Ученым же хочется найти планеты меньшего размера.

Россия больше чем Плутон.
а скоро ещё и ЕКА запустит интерферометр - Дарвин,тоже землеподобные планеты будет искать)
