Atlas V N22 | CST-100 Starliner Orbital Flight Test 2 (OFT-2)

United Launch Alliance | USA
Cape Canaveral, FL, USA
May 19, 2022, 10:54 p.m.
Status: Launch Successful
Mission: Test Flight

This is the second uncrewed test flight for the Starliner spacecraft. Reflight of the OFT mission will allow Boeing to demonstrate readiness of the spacecraft and implement corrections to the problems which were found during the first OFT flight.

Atlas V 541 | GOES-T

United Launch Alliance | USA
Cape Canaveral, FL, USA
March 1, 2022, 9:38 p.m.
Status: Launch Successful
Mission:

The Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite T (GOES-T) is the third satellite in NOAA’s advanced GOES-R series. It is meant to operate as GOES West and work in tandem with GOES-16, which operates in the GOES East position

Atlas V 511 | USSF-8

United Launch Alliance | USA
Cape Canaveral, FL, USA
Jan. 21, 2022, 7 p.m.
Status: Launch Successful
Mission: Government/Top Secret

USSF-8 will launch two identical Geosynchronous Space Situational Awareness Program (GSSAP) satellites GSSAP-5 and GSSAP-6 directly to a near-geosynchronous orbit approximately 36,000 km above the equator. Data from the GSSAP will uniquely contribute to timely and accurate orbital predictions, further enabling space flight safety including satellite collision avoidance. Unique to this mission is the first and only planned flight of the Atlas V 511 configuration.

Atlas V 401 | Lucy

United Launch Alliance | USA
Cape Canaveral, FL, USA
Oct. 16, 2021, 9:34 a.m.
Status: Launch Successful
Mission:

Lucy is the first mission to explore and study Trojan asteroids. The Trojans are a type of asteroids that orbit the Sun in two groups, in front of and behind Jupiter in its orbit around our star. Since these asteroids have been in such stable orbits for billions of years, they are of great interest as remnants of early Solar System. Lucy is a NASA mission led by NASA Goddard and Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colorado. Over the course of 12 years, Lucy will fly by seven different Trojan asteroids and also one main belt asteroid. The complex trajectory to visit all targets will include several Earth gravity assists.

Atlas V 401 | Landsat 9

United Launch Alliance | USA
Vandenberg SFB, CA, USA
Sept. 27, 2021, 6:12 p.m.
Status: Launch Successful
Mission: Earth Science

Landsat 9 is a partnership between NASA and the U.S. Geological Survey to continue the Landsat program's critical role in monitoring, understanding and managing the land resources needed to sustain human life. Landsat 9, like Landsat 8, has a higher imaging capacity than past Landsats, allowing more valuable data to be added to the Landsat global land archive. Its operational orbit is a sun-synchronous orbit at an altitude of 705 km for a mission lifetime of at least 5 years.
