Tracking Fleet Continues Rehearsal

Tokyo - Feb 20, 2002
China's fleet of four space tracking vessels continued their rehearsal for the next Shenzhou launch despite ongoing delays with what will be the third test launch of China's future manned spacecraft. Report of the exercise activities appeared in the People's Liberation Army Daily Feb 10. The Yuanwang fleet (Yuanwang means "Long View") continued to rehearse up until days before the arrival of the Lunar New Year of the Horse a week ago. PLA Daily reported that the fleet successfully completed testings of several domestically developed systems in recent days, and the tracking vessels were ready to perform space mission tracking tasks. In order to meet the requirement of increasing tracking and commanding capabilities at sea, in the past few years the fleet has focused on networking research to support tracking and commanding, navigation, power, and equipment protection. One of the systems that the fleet has developed is the navigation command system network, which is equipped with an advanced electronic ocean map system.

Updated: document.write(todaysDate); We Have To Limit Access To Ambit's NASA Cams! Why? Ambit's most popular page now costs too much to afford on my fixed income. I now have problems paying for the "bandwidth" of each month's bill. I use what I know about computers to keep costs as affordable as possible. Unfortunately, "affordability" has reached its limits. You may have noticed that, unlike most other Web sites, Ambit has very few ads (most pages have no ads at all.) Those are the handful of ads and banners that might interest Ambit's visitors. Most ads do not add anything to the Web experience, they all make VERY small amounts of money (if any) and the broker companies that furnish the ads are so unstable (frequent changes or even bankruptcies) that they are more hassle than they are worth. I hope the fact that Ambit has a minimum number of ads makes it more of a "place" you'll want to come back to. After paying for NASA Cams on my own for over six years, it became obvious that the time had come to ask for help if Ambit Was to stay open. View NASA Cams By Making A Donation!

The launch was originally scheduled for 19 July 2002 but was delayed due to small cracks found in main fuel lines on Atlantis and Discovery. Columbia lifted off on 16 January 2003 at 15:39:00.075 UTC. Debris from the external tank was seen striking the left wing approximately 82 seconds after liftoff and this may or may not have played a role in the subsequent loss of the spacecraft during re-entry. Columbia was lost at approximately 13:59 UTC on 01 February 2003.

by this reporter 02:00 AM May. 25, 2005 PT A former Apollo astronaut is calling on Congress to authorize a space mission to monitor an asteroid that has a narrow chance of hitting Earth in 2035 or 2036. Astronaut Russell Schweickart, who piloted the lunar module during the 1969 Apollo 9 mission, unveiled his proposal Friday at the International Space Development Conference in Arlington, Virginia.

Certainly, we failed to achieve the objective of Cosmos 1 Cosmos 1 a failure. Volna , and we take responsibility for that. Cosmos 1 mission is now in our past. Surprisingly, I am not bummed out. I expected to be. Secretly, not sharing with anyone, I thought that if this mission failed I would come back devastated and in a mood to give it up. So, at about 20:25 GMT on 21 June when it became evident that something had gone gravely wrong with the mission, I waited for the depression to set in. Instead, I got caught up in the immediacy of the situation, and now, four days afterward, I am more focused on what we did, what we still are doing, and what we might do in the future than I am with regret about what might have been.

18. ESA Portal - Press Releases - ESA Unveils Spanish Antenna For
N° 322000 ESA unveils Spanish antenna for unique space mission VILSPA ispart of the European space Operations Centre (ESOC) tracking Station Network
11 May 2000
On Thursday, 18 May, the European Space Agency (ESA) will inaugurate the VIL-1 antenna that will be used for the Cluster II mission to the magnetosphere.
The newly refurbished antenna, which is located at the Villafranca del Castillo Satellite Tracking Station site (VILSPA) near Madrid, has been selected as the prime communication link with the Cluster II spacecraft. The VIL-1 antenna will play a vital role in ESA's Cluster mission by monitoring and controlling the four spacecraft and by receiving the vast amounts of data that will be returned to Earth during two years of operations. Scheduled for launch in summer 2000, the Cluster quartet will complete the most detailed investigation ever made into the interaction between our pl0anet's magnetosphere - the region of space dominated by Earth's magnetic field - and the continuous stream of charged particles emitted by the Sun - the solar wind. This exciting venture is now well under way, following completion of the satellite assembly and test programme and two successful verification flights by the newly developed Soyuz-Fregat launch vehicle. The ESA Flight Acceptance Review Board has accordingly given the go-ahead for final launch preparations at the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. VILSPA, ESA and Cluster II

19. International Space Station - Communication And Tracking
The International space Station program for which Boeing is NASA s prime It must permit mission Control to send commands directly to ISS flight
Communication is the linchpin of safe, reliable International Space Station operations, and the world's window on research progress and results. But it's a tough job with complex requirements. Consider: The Communication and Tracking System must provide two-way audio and video communications among ISS crew, between crew and Mission Control, and between crew and Earthbound scientists via Ku-band, S-band and UHF frequencies. It must permit Mission Control to send commands directly to ISS flight controllers or relay them through the Space Shuttle while providing system, experiment and payload data to Mission Control and the Payload Operations Center. And the System is tasked with allowing the European Space Agency, National Space and Development Agency of Japan, and Mission Control Center-Moscow to communicate with the ISS via Mission Control Center-Houston. Here is how it works: Mission Control Center, Houston sends commands and receives telemetry via the 60-ft. diameter, high-gain microwave ground terminals at NASA's White Sands Test Facility near Las Cruses in southern New Mexico. It uses the S-band and UHF frequencies, as well as the early ISS communications system.

A strange new world
During the first years of the space age the public was exposed to a strange new world. Journalists and scientists scrambled to explain it and interpret technology and events. A source of facts about and authoritative comment to ongoing space missions was the Nuffield Radio Astronomy Laboratories, Jodrell Bank, Cheshire (called Jodrell Bank hereinafter) and its director, professor (later Sir) Bernard Lovell. The observatory could intercept signals from space vehicles, interpret their general meaning as to progress of this particular space mission and thereby provide an independent source of news. Especially, official news about Soviet space events was not always completely candid.
