Liftoff! The XQC mission is on its way to suborbital space to measure X-rays coming from the inner part of our galaxy. The entire flight lasts around 15 minutes before the payload safely parachutes back down to Earth.

History made

The 1st of 3 @NASA scientific rockets has successfully launched from @ela_space Arnhem Space Centre in the NT.

It’s Australia’s 1st commercial launch & NASA’s 1st from a commercial facility outside the US.

This is a milestone moment for our 🇦🇺 space sector

Are there any maps of the range anywhere? Do we know where the payload lands? What the launch azimuth is?

Goddard and Wallops keep a database on annual launches that is updated periodically throughout the year. So info should be known sometime in the future.

The original 2017 thread for this launch site is https://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=44145.0

It would ba good idea ro relocate launch centre discussion there and post the normal mission updates in the dedicated suborbital thread/suborbital launch schedule thread.
