И еще парочка к юбилеям полетов собачек...
По предложению НИИ биофизики, ракеты серии T-7A-S подняли в стратосферу двух собачек — Сяо Бао («Леопардик», 14.07.1966) и Шань Шань («Коралл», 28.07.1966).

Ангара - единственный в истории мировой космонавтики случай когда новая ракета по всем параметрам хуже старой. (с) Старый Ламер
Всё что связано с Ангарой подчинено единственной задаче - выкачать из бюджета и распилить как можно больше денег.
почему-то незамеченным прошёл пуск 13 ноября 2015 бразильской ракеты VS-40M, неудачный правда, но вот аппарат (тоже бразильский) что был на ней, интересен - "SARA" (Satélite de Reentrada Atmosférica)
информация о нём весьма скудна - Satélite de Reentrada Atmosférica, а тут о прошедших и предстоящих пусках - VS-40

Chinese Academy of Sciences successfully launched a new sounding rocket, “Kunpeng-1B,” in Hainan Danzhou early Wednesday. The rocket reached a flight height of 300 kilometers for the first time. Its arrow configuration of altitude control system and carbon fiber stretching rod are being used for the first time in China.

This is the first time Kunpeng 1B’s arrow configuration of altitude control system and carbon fiber stretching rod has been used on a sounding rocket in China. It makes the detector more flexible and lightweight.

The rocket’s falling ball experiment detection for further study of low latitudes in the ionosphere and in the upper atmosphere has important scientific significance. Compared to other space detection methods, sounding rockets are cost effective and have short development cycles.

“In the 13th Five Year Plan, we are planning to launch one or two every year from this site. In the future, we may also develop a special probe. This will also recycle, as its recovery can open doors for life science experiments and microgravity science experiments,” said Wu Ji, Director of National Space Science Center.

China launches Kunpeng-1B sounding rocket

China has successfully launched the Kunpeng-1B sounding rocket from a launch pad in Danzhou City in the southern Chinese Hainan Province.

The research rocket, which is due to take measurements in the upper atmosphere and help with high-speed flight and space tourism research, was launched at 2 a.m. local time (18:00 GMT Tuesday) by China's National Space Science Center (NSSC) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), the Xinhua news agency reported.

The rocket reached a maximum height of 316 kilometers (196 miles), with the total flight time coming to 10 minutes.

Sounding rockets are low-cost launch vehicles designed to carry scientific instruments that take measurements during the rocket's sub-orbital flight. China first launched a Kunpeng-1 rocket in April 2013.

NASA Sounding Rocket Successfully Launches into Alaskan Night

An experiment to measure nitric oxide in the polar sky was successfully launched on a NASA sounding rocket at 8:45 a.m. EST, Jan. 27, 2017, from the Poker Flat Research Range in Alaska.

The Polar Night Nitric Oxide experiment or PolarNOx was launched on a Black Brant IX sounding rocket to an altitude of nearly 176 miles.  Preliminary information shows that good data was collected.

Three Rockets Launched within Hours Explore Auroras over Alaska

Скрытый текст

Three NASA rockets carrying instruments into active auroras over Alaska to aid scientists studying the northern lights and the interactions of the solar wind with Earth’s upper atmosphere and ionosphere were launched within a nearly two-hour period March 2, 2017.

The instruments were successfully carried on Black IX sounding rockets from the Poker Flat Research Range north of Fairbanks. The first two rockets were launched nearly simultaneously at 12:41 a.m. and 12:42:30 a.m. EST as part of the Neutral Jets in Auroral Arcs mission. The third rocket launched at 2:50 a.m. EST was part of the Ionospheric Structuring: In Situ and Groundbased Low Altitude StudieS or ISINGLASS mission.

Taking it to the Supermax


Title Taking it to the Supermax

Released 04/04/2017 2:36 pm

Copyright Vorticity Ltd


What better way to test supersonic parachutes than strapping one to a rocket? One experiment is going to do just that on Thursday’s Maxus-9 suborbital rocket.
The SUpersonic Parachute Experiment Ride on MAXus, or Supermax, is being given a piggyback on Maxus-9, lifting off from Esrange Space Center in Kiruna, Sweden on 6 April. Sounding rockets are launched to the edge of space and free fall back to Earth, allowing experiments to run in weightlessness before landing.
In the case of Supermax, the test vehicle is hitching a ride. Unlike the other experiments, the capsule will detach after the Maxus solid-propellant motor burns out. It will travel separately to the highest point of 715 km before falling back under the pull of gravity to reach twice the speed of sound. The 1.25 m-diameter supersonic parachute will then deploy at an altitude of 20 km to stabilise it for a soft landing. An onboard computer will record data and images.
Supermax aims to demonstrate the use of suborbital rockets as platforms for testing supersonic parachutes. Researchers from the UK’s Vorticity Ltd and Fluid Gravity Engineering Ltd have already run experiments in wind tunnels. Though effective, wind tunnels and some rockets are expensive to employ. Piggybacking on a sounding rocket could be a more cost-efficient approach for testing future supersonic parachutes.
