SpaceX falcon heavy rocket to launch record-breaking Echostar Communication Satellite, Not Falcon 9

SpaceX is the organisation which is using hybrid techniques in order for better development of the satellites. It is well known as the founder is Elon Musk. There are multiple reasons why the organisation is in the good books of everyone, the reason is very simple as they plan to think something which is not implemented and is out of the box. Soon SpaceX falcon heavy rocket to launch record-breaking Echostar Communication Satellite using with hybrid technology.

What is Falcon?

Falcon Heavy is the most powerful operational rocket in the world by a factor of two. With the ability to lift into orbit nearly 64 metric tons (141,000 lb) Falcon Heavy can lift more than twice the payload of the next closest operational vehicle, the Delta IV Heavy. Falcon Heavy is composed of three Falcon 9 nine-engine cores whose 27 Merlin engines together generate more than 5 million pounds of thrust at lift off, equal to approximately eighteen 747 aircraft.

What is Echostar communication satellite

EchoStar I is a communications satellite operated by EchoStar. Launched in 1995, it was operated in geostationary orbit at a longitude of 77 degrees west for 12 or 15 years. EchoStar 17, also known as Jupiter 1, is an American geostationary high throughput communications satellite. EchoStar Satellite Services provides video distribution, data communications and backhaul services to meet the needs of media and broadcast organizations, enterprise customers and government service providers.

Why SpaceX chose falcon heavy rocket for satellite

Falcon indeed is the one of the greatest achievements synchronised by SpaceX. The overall built and various components are designed well. A modern launch vehicle involves two stages: a first stage, the majority of what you see standing on the launchpad, responsible for pushing most of the way into orbit; and a second stage to finish the job. By jettisoning the extra mass of the first stage when it’s done burning its fuel, a smaller, more efficient engine can get just the upper stage and payload into orbit. It’s like a delivery service that uses airplanes, barges, and semi-trucks to move packages most of the way around the world, then does the last leg to your house with a van. The major components and the aerodynamics play a major role here. If we see SpaceX failed multiple times but they are still managing and learnt from their mistakes, they are the true believers of I M POSSIBLE. There were many breakdowns but they are still fighting for sustainability.

Why falcon 9 rocket rejected for launch the satellite

There is a saying that, “When the time is not suitable, the task wouldn’t be completed”. This basically means there are various conditions which we need for a successful lift off. The major thing is all the internal and external command checks but the dependency on the climate is the necessity while the lift off. The climatic conditions at the time of take-off weren’t suitable.

SpaceX called off an attempted launch of its Falcon 9 rocket in California. Due to strong high-altitude winds, according to the company’s CEO, Elon Musk. The Falcon 9 rocket was scheduled to lift off at 9:17 a.m. EST (1417 GMT) from Space Launch Complex 4E at California’s Vandenberg Air Force Base. But about 10 minutes before lift-off, SpaceX announced it was standing down from the launch try. SpaceX’s primary mission for this launch is to deliver the Paz radar-imaging satellite into orbit for the Spain-based company Hisdesat. It will provide imagery for both commercial and government uses, according to a mission description.

“High altitude wind shear data shows a probable 2% load exceedance. Small, but better to be paranoid,” Musk wrote on Twitter. “Postponing launch to tomorrow, assuming winds are better then.”

When will the satellite launch

 successfully sent an Italian surveillance satellite to orbit Monday and now has two launches lined up for Wednesday and Thursday, blasting off from opposite coasts.

Monday’s mission launched from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station carrying a COSMO-SkyMed Second Generation satellite for the Italian Space Agency. Next, Elon Musk’s company will loft a spy satellite from California’s Vandenberg Space Force Base for the National Reconnaissance Office on Wednesday at 12:18 p.m. PT. Then, a Starlink launch is scheduled to take off from Kennedy Space Center in Florida the following day. 

Previously, SpaceX had planned to do the NRO and Starlink launches in less than two hours of each other, but the latter has since been pushed to Thursday. 

Things weren’t supposed to line up this way. Monday’s launch was originally planned for last week, but was pushed back a few days by poor weather. A Sunday evening attempt was then scrubbed at the literal last minute due to a cruise ship in the launch exclusion zone. 

SpaceX’s launch director called it off with just over 30 seconds to go before engine ignition. 

SpaceX is in good condition and is planning to mock hard and come back stronger. The further details are lately published and can be referred from various sources.
