Good to see this rolling along as planned. Now it's down to the operational teams to pull us out of the doldrums, or more precisely operational Sales teams. If they do this will rocket to many multiples of the current stupid Share Price.
Given that Sales are still ncreasing and will rocket when H4 launches I expect the turning point sooner than expected.
AVN is in limbo land, but it will be longer with all electric satellites. An Ku band Eutelsat Satellite took 7 months to raise itself into orbit, instead of a couple of days. Eutelsat's Africa Broadband satellite is also going to be all electric
this article also has a good diagram on satellite orbit raising. Its as spectacular as the launch, without the pyrotechnics
yes AVN will be quiet for a while so congratulations to SpaceX and Iridium
I don't know if they are actually cheaper yet. I don't think they have reused a recovered first stage launcher on a commercial launch. Making a reusable first stage imposes a weight penalty so they have to make it more powerful than say an equivalent Ariane launcher
They use super cooled liquid oxygen ( to make it more dense) in the first stage to juice it all and make it more powerful. This much colder… Read More
No special reason for this post, just some background. There'll always be a cheaper product and no doubt all launches are cheaper than they were in the past. Competition also brings costs down. Article in today's FT:
Aerospace SpaceX back in orbit after launch success RICHARD WATERS — SAN FRANCISCO SpaceX has put a rocket into space for the first time since a launch pad explosion four months ago halted operations at the private US space company founded by billionaire Elon… Read More
