Exos suffers setback in reusable suborbital launch attempt

WASHINGTON — A reusable suborbital rocket developed by Exos Aerospace suffered a loss of attitude control seconds after liftoff on a test flight June 29, but the rocket was still able to glide safely back to Earth.

Exos’ Suborbital Autonomous Rocket with GuidancE, or SARGE, rocket lifted off from Spaceport America in New Mexico at about 2 p.m. Eastern. In the company’s webcast, the rocket started gyrating seconds after liftoff before disappearing from view.

Controllers were able to reestablish some control of the rocket, aborting the flight. The rocket deployed a drogue parachute and parafoil while venting unused propellant. The rocket slowly descended under that parafoil, landing within view of the launch pad 14 minutes after liftoff.

“We had a performance challenge on our gimbal control for one reason or another,” John Quinn, chief operating officer of Exos, said in brief comments at the end of the company’s webcast. “It’s a very, very sad day. However, any day you recover a rocket it is a good day.”

Quinn didn’t elaborate on the problem that caused the anomaly after liftoff, but expressed optimism the problem will be quickly identified and corrected. “Great improvement from last time on the recovery,” he said of the vehicle’s landing. “We’ll be doing this again soon.”

This launch, called Mission 3 by Exos, came after two earlier flights of SARGE in August 2018 and this March. Both those launches suffered some issues that prevented them from reaching the edge of space, but in neither case were those problems as severe as for this flight.

The company thought those earlier problems had been corrected. Quinn noted on the webcast prior to launch that the company had identified 93 lessons learned from the March launch that they incorporated into Mission 3.

The rocket was carrying educational, research and technology demonstration payloads from nine customers on this launch, ranging from a dust aggregation experiment from the University of Central Florida to a biomedical experiment for the Mayo Clinic. Exos expected the rocket to reach a peak altitude of more than 80 kilometers if all went as planned, providing those payloads with a brief period of microgravity before returning to Earth.

A successful flight, the company said prior to launch, would have allowed the company to move into more routine commercial operations of the vehicle, including making it eligible for indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contracts from NASA’s Flight Opportunities program. “With a successful flight we will leave the testing phase,” Quinn said in a pre-launch statement.

Exos also hoped a successful test would allow it to move ahead with a small orbital launch vehicle called Jaguar. That vehicle will feature a reusable first stage using technology developed for SARGE, and be capable of placing 100 kilograms into low Earth orbit. The first launch of Jaguar is planned for late 2022, and Quinn said on the webcast the company is starting to hire personnel to work on that vehicle.
RockOn! (запуск 20 июня с.г.)
RockOn! 2019

NASA Goddard

Опубликовано: 25 июл. 2019 г.

Students fr om across the United States witnessed the launching of their experiments aboard a NASA suborbital sounding rocket Thursday, June 20, 2019, from the Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. The rocket will carry 28 experiments (measuring acceleration, humidity, pressure, temperature and radiation counts) from the RockOn! Program. Participants in RockOn! receive instruction on the basics required to develop a scientific payload for flight on a suborbital rocket. After learning the basics in RockOn!, students may then participate in RockSat-C, wh ere during the school year they design and build a more complicated experiment.

Conducted with the Colorado and Virginia Space Grant Consortia, RockOn! is in its twelfth year and RockSat-C its eleventh year.

Shining (Star)light on the Search for Life
  • To find life on other planets, scientists look for traces of gases produced by living things

  • Some stars may produce these gases in a planet without life

  • The SISTINE sounding rocket studies stars to find which gases are valid signs of life

In the hunt for life on other worlds, astronomers scour over planets that are light-years away. They need ways to identify life from afar — but what counts as good evidence?

Our own planet provides some inspiration. Microbes fill the air with methane; photosynthesizing plants expel oxygen. Perhaps these gases might be found wherever life has taken hold.

But on worlds very different from our own, putative signs of life can be stirred up by non-biological processes. To know a true sign when you see it, astronomer Kevin France at the University of Colorado, Boulder, says, you must look beyond the planet itself, all the way to the gleaming star it orbits.

To this end, France and his team designed the SISTINE mission. Flying on a sounding rocket for a 15-minute flight, it will observe far-off stars to help interpret signs of life on the planets that orbit them. The mission will launch from the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico in the early morning hours of Aug. 5, 2019.

University and community college students from across the country will complete their summer vacation on high note as they send their projects into space on a NASA two-stage Terrier-Improved Malemute suborbital sounding rocket Aug.12, 2019, from the Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.

The projects are a mix of technology and science experiments including developing spacecraft reentry and thermal protection systems, measuring cosmic rays and gathering organic molecules in space for DNA sequencing,

The launch of the 44-foot tall rocket is scheduled between 5:30 and 9:30 a.m. EDT.  The backup launch dates are August 13 - 16.

After flying to around 91 miles altitude, the payload, with the experiments, will descend by parachute and is expected to land 15 minutes after launch in the Atlantic Ocean, about 64 miles off the Virginia coast. The experiments and any stored data will be provided to the students later in the day following sea recovery of the payload.

The NASA Visitor Center at Wallops will open at 4:30 a.m. on launch day for viewing the flight. The rocket launch is expected to be only seen from the Eastern Shore of Virginia and Maryland.

Live coverage of the mission is scheduled to begin at 5:10 a.m. on the Wallops the Wallops Facebook site.

The experiments are being flown through the RockSat-X program in conjunction with the Colorado Space Grant Consortium. RockSat-X is the most advanced of NASA’s three-phase sounding rocket program for students.  The RockOn launches are at the entry level, then progress to the intermediate level RockSat-C missions and then RockSat-X.

Giovanni Rosanova, chief of the Sounding Rockets Program Office at Wallops, said, “RockOn and RockSat have shown to be valuable programs in developing the skills of our future scientists, technicians and engineers. As NASA returns to the Moon and goes on to Mars, these students will be needed in our future workforce to carry on these ambitious missions, as well as science missions to understand the planet Earth and our universe.”

Participating institutions in this flight are the Arapahoe Community College, Littleton, Colorado; Community College of Aurora, Colorado; Red Rocks Community College, Lakewood, Colorado; College of the Canyons, Santa Clarita, California; the University of Puerto Rico, San Juan; University of Kentucky, Lexington; University of Maryland, College Park; University of Nebraska, Lincoln; and Hobart and William Smith Colleges, Geneva, New York.

The experiments are mated with the payload for balance testing.

Additional participants from West Virginia include West Virginia University, Morgantown; Blue Ridge Community and Technical College, Martinsburg; West Virginia State University, Institute; West Virginia Wesleyan College,  Buckhannon; and NASA’s IV & V Facility in Fairmont.

RockSat-X is part of a three-tier program that introduces secondary institution students to building experiments for space flight and requires them to expand their skills to develop and build more complex projects as they progress through the programs. RockSat-X experiments are flown approximately 20 miles higher in altitude than those in  the RockOn and RockSat-C programs, providing more flight time in space

“This will be the ninth flight of a RockSat-X payload,” said Chris Koehler, director of the Colorado Space Grant Consortium. “The program has provided opportunities for more than 1000 students to participate in developing an experiment for spaceflight, which has been beneficial as they have joined such organizations as NASA, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Space-X, Lockheed Martin, DigitalGlobe, Northrop Grumman and many others after graduation.”

NASA's Sounding Rockets Program is managed at the agency's Wallops Flight Facility, which is managed by NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. NASA's Heliophysics Division funds the Sounding Rockets Program for the agency.

The experiments being flown on this RockSat-X flight are:

Community Colleges of Colorado[/P]The Debris Orbital Tumbler and Thermal Sensor (DOTTS) project is a collaboration between three community colleges in Colorado: Arapahoe Community College, Community College of Aurora, and Red Rocks Community College. Their primary experiment is to develop a cost-effective method to alter the trajectory of space debris in suborbital flight. The payload is designed to create an electrostatic field to attract small pieces of aluminum debris by charging a deployable rod with rabbit fur. Their secondary experiment is meant to expand their knowledge about an interesting discovery the team made during the launch of their 2018 experiment. They will be flying multiple pieces of 3D printed material made out of different types of plastic and in different shapes in order to better understand the effects of reentry conditions on 3D printed structures.
