  • Unforgiving void: Spaceflight tragedies remembered


    A sobering week in spaceflight saw the first in-flight fatality in a commercial space programme, as Virgin Galactic lost a test pilot with the breakup of its SpaceShipTwo over the Nevada desert, along with a spectacular but non-fatal launch failure of an uncrewed International Space Station resupply mission. After that ISS mission failure, no less an authority than NASA human spaceflight director William Gerstenmaier took pains to remind everybody that launching rockets is a “tough business” – and warned against complacency as NASA and its private contractors prepare to return to the business of launching American astronauts to orbit.

  • ANALYSIS: Galileo 'on track' despite launch trouble

    News | 01 Sep 2014 14:46 | Dan Thisdell

    ​Europe’s bid to establish its own satellite navigation system suffered a setback with the failure of a Soyuz launcher to put into their assigned orbits the fifth and sixth spacecraft in what is to be a 30-satellite constellation. But both the European Space Agency and European Commission remain confident that the programme remains on track to provide essentially full services from 24 satellites from 2017 and to have the complete, 30-satellite constellation – including six orbiting spares – flying in 2020.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-Galileo-on-track-despite-launch-trouble-403019/
