Private spaceflight to space station, PACE mission & rocket engine test

On Thursday, January 18, a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket carrying the company's Dragon spacecraft for Axiom Space's Axiom Mission 3 (Ax-3) to the International Space Station lifted off at 4:49 p.m. EST from Launch Complex 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. , 2024. Ax-3 is the third private space mission to the space station, sending crew members Commander Michael López-Alegria, Pilot Walter Villadei, and Mission Specialists Markus Wandt and Alber Kezeravsi into orbit. They will spend about two weeks on the space station carrying out microgravity research, educational activities and commercial activities. Credit: NASA/Chris Swanson

Some stories to tell you – this week NASA!

Third private space mission to the space station

On January 18, Axiom Mission 3, the third private space mission to the International Space Station, was launched aboard a spacecraft. SpaceX Dragon spacecraft from NASA's Kennedy Space Center. The mission was led by former NASA astronaut Michael Lopez-Alegria.

NASA will provide integrated operational support, which begins when Dragon approaches the station, continues while the crew is in the orbiting laboratory, and ends when Dragon leaves the space station area.

Science launch to space station

Research headed to the International Space Station for Northrop Grumman's 20th commercial resale services mission to the space station for NASA includes the station's first surgical robot, an inexpensive orbital re-entry platform to collect data on thermal protection systems, and a new metal 3D. Printer.

Studying the oceans and atmosphere in changing climate

NASA's Plankton, Aerosol, Cloud, Ocean Ecosystem, or PACE, mission is aiming to launch before February 6. Earth-observing scientific work will help us understand how our oceans and atmosphere exchange carbon dioxide, measuring key atmospheric variables associated with air quality. and monitor Earth's warming climate, and ocean health.

NASA resumes RS-25 rocket engine testing

On January 17, NASA resumed a critical test series with their RS-25 rocket engine at NASA's Stennis Space Center. Data from the test will be used to certify the production of new RS-25 engines to help power our space launch system, or SLS Rocket on future Artemis missions to the Moon and beyond, starting with Artemis V.

That's @NASA this week.
