SpaceX Falcon-9 "Hot" Reentry into atmosphere in details

SpaceX News

 

Watch YouTube video clicking on Picture

 

 

There were so many questions why after a successful Falcon-9 first stage reentry burn, around 10 seconds after engine shutdown, one of the fins glows red, then begins to burn. Guys who watch video are questioning:  Why would the grid fins are burning after the stage had already completed the reentry burn to slow it down? Also the question was: Why the only one gird fin was burning. You can see now in video the moment of the reentry burn and moment when right grid fin is starting to burn. And then I will show you the burning part of the video in slow motion.  First of all: What is burning? It’s a paint burning, not a grid itself. It’s simple like that. And if you watch carefully, then you will see that the left grid fin was started to burn as well. Unfortunately the video camera was failed to cleaning the lenses and we don’t see the actual burning of the paint. As I already demonstrated in my last video the speed of the descending Falcon-9 first stage during the separation with the second stage was a little bit faster than 2000 meters per second or 1.6 miles per second. Reentry burn was happening about 20-30 kilometers in atmosphere slowing down speed of the spaceship to about 300-400 meters per second that was still supersonic. Exactly at this altitude the atmosphere is becoming dense, and air impact is becoming very HOT. By the way, Falcon-9 was experiencing the same hot reentry as you see during the meteorites entering the atmosphere and becoming a fireball. The only difference is the speed of meteorites that is usually in the range of 14-20 kilometers per second!  Elon Musk in one of his recent statements mentioned that Grid Fins are taking the biggest impact of Hot reentry and company is planning to make them out of titanium alloys the same as supersonic jet aircrafts are using. 

I hope you like our videos. Please subscribe to our channel and you are welcome to ask any questions in video comments. If you didn’t watch the actual SpaceX Falcon-9 launch with SES-10 satellite now you have a chance to see it, if you continue to watching. Thank you and see you next time. Bye

SpaceX Falcon-9 performed prelaunch test to send on orbit EchoStar23 satellite early

Tuesday, March 14, 2017

 

Finally!!!

 

SpaceX has suspended its practice of conducting some static fire tests with the mission’s satellite payloads already on-board the booster since a rocket exploded during fueling for a hot fire last September, destroying the launcher and the Israeli-owned Amos 6 communications satellite.

 

Investigators traced the explosion to a problem in the second stage’s helium pressurization system, and SpaceX says it has modified the way it loads helium and propellant into the rocket to avoid a recurrence of the issue. Hardware changes to permanently rectify the problem will come later, the company said.

SpaceX has not ruled out resuming static fire tests of fully-assembled rockets in the future, which would save one or two days in each launch campaign.


 

Still, the test is a customary step in SpaceX launch campaigns, offering a chance to wring out any kinks in the Falcon 9 rocket and ground systems, practice countdown procedures for the launch team, and verify the readiness of the booster’s main propulsion system.

The rocket will now be returned to the hangar at pad 39A for attachment of the EchoStar 23 spacecraft, a commercial television broadcast satellite that will beam video programming to homes and businesses in Brazil.

Liftoff is scheduled for a two-and-a-half hour window opening at 1:34 a.m. EDT (0534 GMT) Tuesday.

Attempts to perform the hotfire test Tuesday and Wednesday were scrubbed for unknown reasons. SpaceX declined to comment on launch preparations in advance of the static fire, but the delays forced a two-day slip in the mission’s targeted launch date from Sunday to Tuesday.

The company confirmed in a tweet Thursday evening that the static fire was completed. Engineers will crunch data from the hotfire to verify all systems functioned as intended, then convene a launch readiness review in advance of the final countdown, which will commence Monday night.

EchoStar 23 is already encapsulated inside the Falcon 9 rocket’s payload fairing after fueling inside a clean room at neighboring Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. The composite will be installed on the rocket once the Falcon 9 is lowered and rolled back inside SpaceX’s hangar.

Built by Space Systems/Loral in Palo Alto, California, EchoStar 23 will be deployed into geostationary transfer orbit, an elliptical loop around Earth favored as a drop-off point for communications satellites heading for operating posts more than 22,000 miles (nearly 36,000 kilometers) over the equator.

At that altitude, a spacecraft in orbit will move around Earth at the same speed the planet rotates, allowing the satellite to remain fixed over the same location.

EchoStar 23 will use its own thrusters to reach a position in geostationary orbit at 45 degrees west longitude, where its telecom package will broadcast direct-to-home television to customers in Brazil.

SpaceX has changed the schedule of the Iridium NEXT satellite launch again to January 14

 

 

SpaceX has postponed the return to flight for its Falcon 9 rocket until Jan. 14 at the earliest, due to a gloomy weather forecast for the next few days at its California launch site.

The launch of 10 Iridium Next telecommunications satellites had been scheduled for Monday from Vandenberg Air Force Base. But in a series of tweets, Iridium and SpaceX said the liftoff had to be put off due to a combination of windy, rainy weather and scheduling conflicts:

Elon Musk delays crewed flight of its SpaceX Dragon capsule for NASA

 

Actually it was predictable. The way SpaceX configured the use of Liquid Helium composite vessels and procedure of filling spacecraft with liquid oxygen were (are) the recipe for the disaster. I have 38 years of experience working with cryogenic liquids and vessels. Watching oxygen vapors covers all over the craft even during flight was painful. When Elon Musk asked for help per Twitter, I had sent them proposal to help company connecting both second stage explosions to the same problem. They have ignored it. Looks like SpaceX became regular big and ignorant monster company. Too pity.

 


 

September 1, 2016 Latest update on SpaceX Falcon-9 explosion

 

Please don't be fooled by thousands of "new" articles and videos that speculating explosion of the Falcon-9 on the launching Pad.

Below is the SpaceX updates "as it was". Please pay attention that no one knows more than in this SpaceX article - no one and nobody!   Below is updates directly from SpaceX website:

 

 

Below are updates regarding the anomaly that occurred in preparation for the AMOS-6 mission:

September 2, 6:45pm EDT

SpaceX has begun the careful and deliberate process of understanding the causes and fixes for yesterday's incident.  We will continue to provide regular updates on our progress and findings, to the fullest extent we can share publicly.

We deeply regret the loss of AMOS-6, and safely and reliably returning to flight to meet the demands of our customers is our chief priority.  SpaceX's business is robust, with approximately 70 missions on our manifest worth over $10 billion.  In the aftermath of yesterday's events, we are grateful for the continued support and unwavering confidence that our commercial customers as well as NASA and the United States Air Force have placed in us.

Overview of the incident:

- Yesterday, at SpaceX's Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, an anomaly took place about eight minutes in advance of a scheduled test firing of a Falcon 9 rocket.

- The anomaly on the pad resulted in the loss of the vehicle.

- This was part of a standard pre-launch static fire to demonstrate the health of the vehicle prior to an eventual launch. 

- At the time of the loss, the launch vehicle was vertical and in the process of being fueled for the test.  At this time, the data indicates the anomaly originated around the upper stage liquid oxygen tank.  Per standard operating procedure, all personnel were clear of the pad.  There were no injuries.

To identify the root cause of the anomaly, SpaceX began its investigation immediately after the loss, consistent with accident investigation plans prepared for such a contingency.  These plans include the preservation of all possible evidence and the assembly of an Accident Investigation Team, with oversight by the Federal Aviation Administration and participation by NASA, the United States Air Force and other industry experts.  We are currently in the early process of reviewing approximately 3000 channels of telemetry and video data covering a time period of just 35-55 milliseconds. 

As for the Launch Pad itself, our teams are now investigating the status of SLC-40.  The pad clearly incurred damage, but the scope has yet to be fully determined.  We will share more data as it becomes available.  SpaceX currently operates 3 launch pads – 2 in Florida and 1 in California at Vandenberg Air Force Base.  SpaceX's other launch sites were not affected by yesterday's events.  Space Launch Complex 4E at Vandenberg Air Force Base is in the final stages of an operational upgrade and Launch Complex 39A at Kennedy Space Center remains on schedule to be operational in November.  Both pads are capable of supporting Falcon 9 and Falcon Heavy launches.  We are confident the two launch pads can support our return to flight and fulfill our upcoming manifest needs.

Again, our number one priority is to safely and reliably return to flight for our customers, as well as to take all the necessary steps to ensure the highest possible levels of safety for future crewed missions with the Falcon 9. We will carefully and thoroughly investigate and address this issue.

September 2, 9:00am EDT

Statement from SpaceX President and COO, Gwynne Shotwell:

“We deeply regret the loss of Amos-6.  Our number one priority is to safely and reliably return to flight for our customers, and we will carefully investigate and address this issue.  We are grateful for the continued support that our customers have expressed to us.”

September 1, 1:28pm EDT 

At approximately 9:07 am ET, during a standard pre-launch static fire test for the AMOS-6 mission, there was an anomaly at SpaceX’s Cape Canaveral Space Launch Complex 40 resulting in loss of the vehicle.

The anomaly originated around the upper stage oxygen tank and occurred during propellant loading of the vehicle. Per standard operating procedure, all personnel were clear of the pad and there were no injuries.

We are continuing to review the data to identify the root cause. Additional updates will be provided as they become available.

September 1, 10:22am EDT

SpaceX can confirm that in preparation for today's static fire, there was an anomaly on the pad resulting in the loss of the vehicle and its payload. Per standard procedure, the pad was clear and there were no injuries.
