Thread for the Starlink 4-36 group launch.

NSF Threads for Starlink 4-36: Discussion

Launch October 20, 2022, 14:50 UTC (10:50 am EDT), from Canaveral SLC-40, on booster 1062-10.  First stage landing aboard A Shortfall Of Gravitas is expected.

Payload 54 Starlink satellites to 53.2 degree inclination on a northeastern trajectory.  Initial orbit 336 x 232 km.

Starlink v1.5 satellite mass is now about 300kg after the addition of laser ISL terminals.

Please use the Starlink Discussion Thread for all general discussion on Starlink.

Check the Starlink Index Thread for links to more Starlink information.

Now TBD. Ben Cooper says "late September or October."

If SpaceX maintains the planned 7-day gap and Starlink 4-35 settles on a record-breaking Sept 23rd attempt at LC-40, 4-36 could maybe still launch before the end of the month but that would probably require SpaceX to delay Galaxy 33/34 from Oct 5th or require its customer to accept being party to an LC-40 turnaround that would have been record-breaking two weeks prior.

More realistically, I think Starlink 4-36 could be delayed until Oct ~20th or later if SpaceX can't work a miracle and squeeze it in on Sept 27th or 28th.

The NGA for 23rd was issued on 17th when launch could be early on 18th UTC. I think this suggests they can get the pad ready in 5 days, but this only works if both ASDS are available to alternate because the other pad is not in use. Shortest time for ASDS turnaround is more like 7 or 8 days.

This would suggest earliest schedule would be:

24th 4-35 ASOG (5 day pad, 11 day ASOG)
29th 4-36 JRTI (5 day pad, 10 day JRTI)
3rd Oct Crew-5 ASOG (22 day pad, 9 day ASOG)

Current schedule 5th Oct Galaxy 33&34 - not possible 6 day JRTI
Earliest possible perhaps 6th Galaxy 33&34 JRTI (7 day pad, 7 day JRTI )

If the 23rd NGA date holds then it suggests they can do 4 day pad turnarounds, and something like 23rd 27th 3rd 5th remains possible.

Of course, if Fiona makes recovery impossible then don't hold breathe for these dates

The next SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket will launch a Starlink batch from pad 40 on September 24, between 7:30pm and 10pm EDT. A Falcon 9 will launch a Starlink batch from pad 40 on very end of September or October TBD.  A Falcon 9 from pad 39A will launch four astronauts on NASA's Crew-5 mission on October 3, at the earliest, at 12:45pm EDT. A Falcon 9 from pad 40 will launch the Galaxy 33 & 34 communication satellites on October 5 at 7:07pm EDT.

While Galaxy is still stated to be Oct 5th, the "on very end of September or October TBD" suggest that at present they are still trying to fit in 2 starlink launches which will almost certainly delay Galaxy 33 34 launch. But of course this could change whether or not we see any delays with 4-35 and 4-36.

Maybe SpaceX could drop the 4-36 booster off at Jacksonville and send JRTI back out to recover the Galaxy 33&34 booster?

Maybe SpaceX could drop the 4-36 booster off at Jacksonville and send JRTI back out to recover the Galaxy 33&34 booster?

Interesting idea.

If ASDS turnaround longer than pad turnaround and ASDS is a limiting factor to launch cadence, then why not Port operations at Jacksonville?

Extra costs for longer trip from port to refurbishment facility but seems like they would be small compared maritime crew savings and faster launch cadence.

If some launches heading NE and some SE and some due East, might need extra caps for leg retraction or maybe that and the people with the right experience can easily be transported as necessary.

.

Another possibility for fitting in 4-35 and 4-36 and still doing Galaxy 33& 34 on 5th October would be if Artemis launch delays Crew-5 so ASOG can do the Galaxy landing & collection.

I offer these three cancel-and-replace NGA notices which may be for this launch.  These all arrived early UTC on September 24.

The Rocket Launching notice cancels the Artemis I Rocket Launching notice, but it is clearly not a new Artemis I notice.  The dates and times are not correct for Artemis I.  They are for a mid-inclination Starlink launch (or something similar).

The two Space Debris notices (which are the same notice for two different Navigational Areas) cancel the two Space Debris notices for Starlink Group 4-35.  4-35 launched on September 24 as scheduled, with a Rocket Launching notice but with no Space Debris notice for second stage reentry.

So at this point my best guess is that none of these notices should have canceled any existing notices.  Given that, the most likely scenario is that they are for this launch.

Clarification of September 30 launch time:
NextSpaceFlight, updated September 25:
22:36 UTC
= 6:36 pm EDT

That is 20 minutes after the closing of the Atlas V launch window.

There is also the question of the weather.

Edit: Atlas V launch delayed to October 4.

The coordinates do appear to match previous mid inclination Starlink launches. However, at least one of the area A. coordinates appears to have been omitted from the NGA notice. Also, I suspect that more Space Debris coordinates could be published to make the area rectangular.

Interestingly enough this created a scenario where Starlink 4-36 was slated to launch exactly one hour after SES 20&21 launched from SLC-41. In my understanding the eastern range is not able to support such a hasty one hour turnaround. Still subject to delays due to Ian as well.

No delay yet based on this L-3 weather forecast being issued.  But it's only 20% 'Go' for September 30.  60% 'Go' for October 1.  The Booster Recovery Weather risk is High for both days.  All other Additional Risk Criteria are Low for both days.

Yeh the call was finally made yesterday to call off Sep 30 for launch. It was not surprising to see that today the SLD45 didn't release any forecast for that mission. ASOG will support Galaxy 33&34 and this mission will fly after Hotbird 13F. Kinda glad USSF-44 is double RTLS with no droneship needed 😅

... but I wouldn't put too much faith in that.  They also have Hotbird 13F as October 13 UTC, even though it has slipped to October 15.

Hotbird 13F is now correctly listed as 15 October UTC, with Starlink 4-36 still on for 18 October UTC.

I had noticed that but didn't think it was worth commenting on.  So far there are neither an FAA TFR nor an NGA notice for any date, and those are what really count.

And now the NGA notices are out, for the 20th (the two Space Debris notices are the same notice, for two different Navigational Areas).  Meanwhile the FAA ATC Current Operations Plan still says the 18th.  It will get straightened out when the FAA TFRs are issued.

The warning periods are long enough to support same-day backup times.

The 45th Weather Squadron seems to be a little confused.  Issued 27 Sept 2022, valid 30 Sept 2022, next forecast 28 Sept 2022.

"This forecast is based on the 0500L National Hurricane Center official forecast for Major Hurricane Ian."

Targeting Thursday, October 20 for a Falcon 9 launch of 54 Starlink satellites to low-Earth orbit from SLC-40 in Florida → https://www.spacex.com/launches/sl4-36/

Quote
SpaceX is targeting Thursday, October 20 for a Falcon 9 launch of 54 Starlink satellites to low-Earth orbit from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida. The instantaneous launch window is at 10:50 a.m. ET (14:50 UTC), and a backup opportunity is available on Friday, October 21 at 10:29 a.m. ET (14:29 UTC).

The first stage booster supporting this mission previously launched GPS III Space Vehicle 04, GPS III Space Vehicle 05, Inspiration4, Ax-1, Nilesat 301, and four Starlink missions. Following stage separation, the first stage will land on the A Shortfall of Gravitas droneship, which will be stationed in the Atlantic Ocean.

A live webcast of this mission will begin about five minutes prior to liftoff.

This marked the shortest time so far between two SpaceX launches from the same pad at 5d 9h 28m between Eutelsat Hotbird 13F and Starlink 4-36. Previous record set a few weeks ago was ~14 hours longer.

Here is a comparison of the webcast telemetry from the two most recent 54 satellite Starlink launches from the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station, 4-34 and 4-36.

The first stage profiles are essentially the same, but there is a difference in the second stage terminal guidance that I have not noticed previously.

4-34 throttled back about 3% at the T+490 second mark, but 4-36 throttled back perhaps 2% at three points: T+ 450, 475 and 508 seconds.

4-36 burnt for a couple of seconds longer, so the area under the two curves is the same, giving the same impulse. Gravity losses would have been fast approaching zero at this stage, so it would be interesting to know what this more complex profile achieves. Insertion accuracy?
