  • Geodesy and Cartography agency It ll be interesting to see what happens to the All Union state agencies in the new republics but my guess is that management of the space programs will remain unchanged for the forseeable future i e at least till teatime this afternoon Kosmos 2154 a Soviet Navy navigation satellite was launched from Plesetsk on Aug 22 This was the first launch of the R 14 IRBM based Kosmos booster since a launch failure in June Yuri 3B BS 3B before launch a Japanese TV broadcast satellite was launched by H 1 launch vehicle on Aug 25 and succesfully reached synchronous orbit BS 2X and BS 3H were launch failures and BS 3A has had on orbit problems so BS 3B is really important for the Japanese satellite broadcasting program The H 1 launch vehicle is operated by the NASDA applications space agency BS 3B uses the GE3000 bus first used by the RCA Advanced Satcom but with a Japanese apogee motor I dont know what its called first used on ETS 5 Japan s other space agency ISAS which has responsibility for science satellites launched the Yohkoh Sunlight satellite on Aug 30 using a Mu

  • than pilots Buchli is the first Shuttle generation 1978 group and later astronaut to make four flights although Brewster Shaw and Guion Bluford will still have more flight hours Trivia corner Astronauts with lots of flights There are 11 people who have made four or more spaceflights counting space as starting at 80 km altitude John Young holds the record at six Vladimir Dzhanibekov has five and so does Joe Engle Those with four are Charles Conrad James Lovell Tom Stafford Bob Crippen Vance Brand Jim Buchli Oleg Makarov and Gennadiy Strekalov Of these only Buchli and Strekalov are likely to make further flights although I believe that Brand and Young are still nominally on the active list Anatoliy Artsebarksiy and Sergey Krikalyov continue in orbit aboard the Mir Kvant Sofora Kvant 2 Kristall Soyuz TM 12 Progress M 9 complex India s IRS 1B remote sensing satellite was launched by a commercial Vostok booster from Kosmodrom Baykonur on Aug 29 into polar orbit A Kosmos electronic intelligence satellite was lost on Aug 30 at Kosmodrom Baykonur when its Zenit launch vehicle was destroyed during launch This is the second Zenit failure in a row Current STS status Orbiters OV

  • elliptical orbit C band comsat the 41st Molniya 3 satellite was launched by Molniya from Plesetsk on Sep 17 Both satellites are made by NPO Prikladnoi Mechaniki Applied Mechanics Corp in Krasnoyarsk The older Molniya satellite is in a 12 hour period elliptical orbit and has a KDU 414 engine for stationkeeping with its apogee kept over the former USSR The more modern Kosmos 2155 is inserted into geostationary orbit by the Blok DM fourth stage of the Proton launcher The Proton inserts the Kosmos Blok DM into low earth orbit at an inclination of 51 6 degrees the Blok DM ignites to put the combination in GTO Geostationary Transfer Orbit at an inclination of 46 degrees and then six hours later reignites over the equator at apogee for a second burn into synchronous orbit after which the Blok DM separates and the Kosmos satellite s small stationkeeping engines control the drift to the desired longitude This technique is similar to that used by the old Titan 3C Transtage but the initial parking orbit inclinations are much higher since Baykonur is far to the north of Cape Canaveral The spacecraft are used by the MSvyazi Soviet Ministry of Communications which
