Upcoming Spaceflights


New Glenn | EscaPADE (Maiden flight)

Blue Origin | United States of America
Cape Canaveral, FL, USA
TBD September, 2024
Status: To Be Determined
Mission:

Maiden flight of Blue Origin's New Glenn launch vehicle carrying the Escape and Plasma Acceleration and Dynamics Explorers (EscaPADE), a dual-spacecraft mission to study ion and sputtered escape from Mars. The spacecrafts' scientific goals are to understand the processes controlling the structure of Mars' hybrid magnetosphere and how it guides ion flows; understand how energy and momentum are transported from the solar wind through Mars' magnetosphere; and understand the processes controlling the flow of energy and matter into and out of the collisional atmosphere.

New Glenn | Project Kuiper (New Glenn #1)

Blue Origin | United States of America
Cape Canaveral, FL, USA
TBD December, 2024
Status: To Be Determined
Mission:

Project Kuiper is a mega constellation of satellites in Low Earth Orbit that will offer broadband internet access, this constellation will be managed by Kuiper Systems LLC, a subsidiary of Amazon. This constellation is planned to be composed of 3,276 satellites. The satellites are projected to be placed in 98 orbital planes in three orbital layers, one at 590 km, 610 km and 630 km altitude. 61 satellites will be carried on each New Glenn launch.
