Flightglobal will be at the 17th International Space Conference being held at the Hotel Parco dei Principi in Rome on 8, 9 and 10 May. Organised by Pagnanelli Risk Solutions, this year’s conference’s expert presenters and panelists will be covering solar storms and other natural and man made hazards to spacecraft.
US Astronaut Suni Williams and Japanese astronaut Aki Hoshide made a spacewalk EVA (Extra Vehiclular Activity) to set up an alternative pathwway for ammonia coolant apparently leaking on a radiator on the P6 segrment of the International Space Station truss. The astronauts re-routed this to an alternative radiator they had set up. The spacewalk which lasted over six and a half hours began at 1228 GMT (hatch open) and ended at1907 GMT on 1 November, ,
Progress M-017M cargo vessel is launched by Soyuz on a rapid approach sequence to International Space Station (Updated)
The unmanned cargo freighter vessel Progress M-017M/ISS-49P was launched on a rapid approach trajectory to the International Space Station at 0741 GMT by a Soyuz U from the Baikonur launch base near Tyuratam, Kazakhstan. The rapid approach sequence involves the craft making four burns which allows the craft to rendezvous and dock with the International Space Station within six hours of launch rather than the usual three day approach. Update: Progress M-017M docked with ISS aft port on Zvezda module at 1333 GMT.
The Soyuz TMA-06M spacecraft has docked to the International Space Station (ISS) at 1229 GMT on 25 October. The docking took place at the Poisk docking port. Aboard were mission commander Oleg Novitskiy, flight engineer Evgeny Tarelkin and NASA astronaut Kevin Ford.
While the Flightglobal Hyperbola column reported newswire reports of her negotiations in August, in early October the singer Sarah Brightman formally announced that she has booked a seat on Soyuz to the International Space Station via the space tourism arranger, Space Adventures. Brightman, who was once a dancer in the sensous dance troupe “Hot Gossip” and once had a minor pop song hit with “I lost my heart to a starship trooper”, will have a 10-day stay on the station in 2015. Now a well regarded soprano singer, Brightman, is also the former wife of the famous stage musical composer, Sir Andrew Lloyd-Webber.
The European Space Agency’s cargo craft, ATV 03 (EDOARDO AMALDI), has failed to undock from the Zvezda port of the International Space Station as planned at circa 2230 GMT on 25 September. The fault which prevented the full undocking sequence from going ahead was traced to a faulty laptop which was commanding the sequence.
The launch of Soyuz TMA-06M on a Soyuz FG rocket has been delayed from 15 October to 23 October after a technical fault resulted in a electronics module change. The flight is to carry astronaut Kevin Ford and and cosmonauts Oleg Novitskiy and Evgeny Tarelkin to the International Space Station. The launch was delayed due to the failure of a switching unit in the descent module which had to be changed..
Japan’s unmanned freighter spacecraft, HTV-3, was successfully detached from the International Space Station as planned on 12 September at 1550 GMT . However, shortly after detaching and gently moving away, the craft made an unexpected emergency retreat from the station – a mode of operation that is only supposed to kick in when the on-board systems indicate that the craft is in danger of striking the space station. Engineers from the Japanese space agency JAXA are now investigating why this abort proceedure was triggered. The craft is expected to be de-orbited after an engine firing at 0451 GMT on 14 September to a safe burn up re-entry, with any remainng debris planned to land in the Pacific.
Astronauts Sunita Williams and Akihiko Hoshide made a spacewalk to finish the replacement of a key component on the International Space Station. The EVA (Extravehicular Activity) on 5 September lasted six hours and 28 minute (ending at 1734 GMT. After using a toothbrush to clean metal shavings/debris from a bolt hole they successfully drove home a new bolt to latch the replacement Main Bus Switching Unit No 1 (MBSU No 1) into place.
