Япония запустит космический грузовик "Конотори" к МКС 11 сентября

Корабль должен достигнуть станции 14 сентября

ТОКИО, 29 июля. /ТАСС/. Японский беспилотный грузовой корабль "Конотори-8" ("Аист-8") отправится к Международной космической станции (МКС) 11 сентября. Об этом сообщило в понедельник Японское агентство аэрокосмических исследований.

Запуск будет осуществлен с космодрома на острове Танэгасима в юго-западной префектуре Кагосима с помощью тяжелой ракеты H-2B. Корабль должен достигнуть МКС 14 сентября.

Грузовик доставит на станцию различные полезные грузы и оборудование, включая разработанный совместно с Sony аппарат для осуществления оптической телекоммуникации с Землей. Тестирование этого устройства будет проведено до конца текущего года. Также "Конотори-8" возьмет на борт два микро-спутника для исследования космоса.

Предыдущий запуск корабля к МКС этой серии был успешно осуществлен в ноябре прошлого года.
JAXA to launch eighth HTV space station cargo mission in September

Japan’s eighth resupply mission to the International Space Station is set for liftoff Sept. 10 with another batch of upgraded batteries, crew provisions and experiments for the orbiting research lab, the country’s space agency announced Monday.

The eighth H-2 Transfer Vehicle will blast off on top of an H-2B rocket from the Tanegashima Space Center, located on Tanegashima Island near the southwestern extent of Japan’s main islands.

Liftoff is set for 2133 GMT (5:33 p.m. EDT) on Sept. 10, or 6:33 a.m. Japan Standard Time on Sept. 11, according to the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency. The HTV will arrive at the space station Sept. 14, assuming an on-time launch.

The automated cargo freighter will carry more than 7,700 pounds — about 3.5 metric tons — of supplies and experiments to the space station, JAXA said. That figure does not include support hardware used to mount the HTV’s payloads inside the spacecraft for the journey into space.

The HTV is the largest supply ship currently flying to the space station. JAXA developed the HTV and its H-2B carrier rocket to help pay for Japan’s share of the space station’s operating costs.

Nicknamed Kounotori, which means “white stork” in Japanese, the cargo freighter measures about 33 feet (10 meters) long and about 14 feet (4.4 meters) in diameter. The Kounotori 8 mission will be the eighth flight by an HTV supply ship since Japan launched the first HTV spacecraft in September 2009.

The HTV mission set for launch in September will carry six lithium-ion batteries to the space station to upgrade the orbiting research lab’s external power system. The station’s robotic arm, with the help of astronauts on two spacewalks later this year, will remove aging nickel-hydrogen batteries from a section of the station’s outboard truss and replace them with the new, higher-capacity lithium-ion batteries.

The International Space Station has four power modules — two on each end of the station’s truss backbone — with solar arrays that span 240 feet (73 meters) tip-to-tip. The solar wings charge batteries that keep the space station’s systems powered during the night portion of each 90-minute orbit around Earth.

Twelve batteries were delivered to the station on the sixth and seventh HTV missions, and a final batch of six lithium-ion batteries will launch on the ninth HTV mission next year.

The Kounotori 8 mission is also carrying food, fresh drinking water, and a high-pressure gas tank to recharge the space station’s internal atmosphere with oxygen and nitrogen.

The HTV will also deliver experiments to the space station.

One of the experiments will demonstrate a high-speed satellite laser communications system developed by JAXA and Sony Computer Science Laboratories. The technology demonstrator will be mounted on an experiment platform outside the space station’s Japanese Kibo laboratory module to test out a laser link with a ground station, which can accommodate higher-bandwidth communications than radio systems.

Japan’s Hourglass experiment is also set for launch on the eighth HTV mission to help scientists investigate the behavior of soil and rock particles under low gravity, simulating the conditions future probes might encounter on a small planet or asteroid.

A science rack to host cellular biology experiments will also fly to the space station on the Kounotori 8 spacecraft, along with three CubeSats to be deployed from the station’s Japanese robotic arm.

JAXA and Ricoh jointly develop a compact spherical camera for use in outer space
August 28, 2019 (JST)

National Research & Development Agency
Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA)
Ricoh Company, Ltd.

The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and Ricoh Company, Ltd. (Ricoh), today announced that they have jointly developed a spherical camera that can be used in outer space (outside the spacecraft) to capture 360-degree spherical images in a single shot.

This camera will be used as to monitor the operation of the biaxial gimbal of the SOLISS (Small Optical Link for International Space Station)*1. It will be carried aboard the H-II Transfer Vehicle (HTV8) “KOUNOTORI-8”, the cargo transporter to the International Space Station (ISS), which is scheduled for launch on September 11th, 2019. It will shoot spherical pictures and videos from the Exposed Facility of the Japanese Experiment Module (JEM) “Kibo” and send them to ground stations. This camera was developed from a consumer product, and is the world’s smallest 360-degree camera that can be used in outer space. In addition, it is the first time that this 360-degree camera based on a consumer product from Japanese company will take spherical images in outer space.

JAXA and Ricoh have jointly developed this camera under a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed in 2018 to mutually cooperate. The camera was based on Ricoh’s compact spherical camera RICOH THETA*2, and JAXA has taken measures on this camera for use in space to withstand the heat and radiation. Given the compact size and light weight of this camera, as well as the fact that the camera can shoot 360-degree spherical images in a single shot, it is useful to get a lot of visual information in outer space.

JAXA aims to further utilize this technology as a monitor camera to be attached outside a spacecraft. Ricoh will expand the use of its 360-degree cameras and related services to a wider variety of industries. It will also contribute to the development of science and society, including space development, through technology research and development.
