“And now, with the support of ESA’s Member States, we are very eager to kick-start the preparation process for our twelfth Earth Explorer research mission. This new mission, to be launched around 2036, will help retain ESA’s leadership in innovation and will be key to the next segment of our FutureEO programme.”

Earth Explorer 12
Following a Call for Ideas issued in February 2023, which resulted in 17 submissions, four mission ideas were selected for assessment study in April 2024. These mission ideas are: CryoRad, ECO, Hydroterra+ and Keystone.

...
USN seeks authority to use Galileo L12 (GSAT0225 &
GSAT0227) spacecrafts for support of tracking and commissioning operations of launch of the
Galileo L13 scheduled for launch in September 2024, and not commercial service to the United
States, and thus believes that Section 25.137 does not apply.

WASHINGTON — More than a year after losing two Pléiades Neo high-resolution imaging satellites in a launch failure, Airbus has outlined plans to replace them.

The company announced April 29 a new program called Pléiades Neo Next, which it described as creating “new satellite assets and capabilities” to augment the two Pléiades Neo satellites currently in operation. That will start with one satellite Airbus has started to manufacture that will launch in the next few years.

Ariane 6 April 29, 2024
ARIANESPACE TO LAUNCH THE FIRST FOUR SECOND-GENERATION SATELLITES FOR GALILEO ON ARIANE 6
...

The European Commission and the European Union Agency for the Space Programme (EUSPA) will entrust Arianespace with the launch of four new satellites for the Galileo navigation constellation.

This order brings to five the total number of launches scheduled on-board Ariane 6 for Europe’s ultra-high performance Galileo satellite navigation system: the last three launches of pairs of first-generation satellites (L14-L15-L16) and the first two pairs of the second generation (L17-L18).

These two additional launches are scheduled in 2026 and 2027 and will carry the first four second-generation Galileo satellites in pairs. Airbus Defence and Space and Thales Alenia Space are each building six satellites, which together will form the first second-generation fleet. The satellites, each weighing about 2,000 kg and equipped with electrical propulsion, will then reach the Galileo constellation’s operational orbit (at an altitude of 23,222 km).

Media advisory: EarthCARE launch media opportunities

ESA’s EarthCARE mission will launch on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Vandenberg Space Force Base in California, no earlier than Tuesday 28 May 2024.

EarthCARE is the most complex of all of ESA’s trailblazing Earth Explorer missions – missions that deliver critical information to understand how our world functions and the impact that human activity is having on natural processes.

Developed as a cooperation between ESA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), this exciting mission will make a range of different measurements that together will shed new light on the role that clouds and aerosols play in regulating Earth’s delicate temperature balance.
 
With global climate change increasingly affecting our planet, EarthCARE is poised to provide data for climate research, improve the accuracy of climate models and support numerical weather prediction. 
 
Media can attend a wide range of in-person and online pre-launch media briefings detailed below and are also invited to participate in the European launch event currently planned to take place on 28 May 2024 at ESA’s European Space Operations Centre in Darmstadt, Germany.

ESA signs contracts for commercial space cargo return service
22/05/2024 3162 views 13 likes
ESA / Science & Exploration / Human and Robotic Exploration

ESA has signed two contracts with European industry to develop a commercial service capable of transporting cargo to and from the International Space Station in low Earth orbit by 2030.

Today, at the Space Council in Brussels, ESA Director General Josef Aschbacher signed contracts with Hélène Huby from The Exploration Company based in Germany, and Massimo Comparini from Thales Alenia Space based in Italy, to develop a low Earth orbit (LEO) cargo return service.

Member States of ESA decided to launch this competition for European industry at the Space Summit in November, asking companies to propose a first step towards a cargo service to and from space stations in low Earth orbit, such as the International Space Station. Just six months later, after evaluating several proposals from European companies, ESA has selected two projects that will go ahead in the competition, awarding 25 million euros of funding to each to support them in developing the cargo service.

Today, Europe relies on its international partners to bring its cargo and crew to space, providing in exchange key contributions to international space projects, such as the Columbus laboratory on the International Space Station, or the European Service Modules which power the Orion vehicles for Artemis missions.

This competition to build a cargo service to space stations in low Earth orbit, both to the International Space Station and space stations after its lifetime, will enable ESA to continue its exploration endeavours, as well as strengthen European industry’s independence in the future low Earth orbit economy.

ESA is launching a competition which initiates a first phase of activities for European companies to eventually demonstrate a complete cargo delivery service to and from space stations in low-Earth orbit by 2028.

At the recent Space Summit, Member States agreed to launch a new competition for European companies, who will propose a first step towards a cargo service to and from space stations in low-Earth orbit. In this first phase, selected companies will be asked to carry out all activities necessary to enabling a first flight demonstration to the International Space Station by 2028; this should be part of the ESA Director General’s proposal at the next ESA council at ministerial level in 2025, where representatives of the Agency's Member States make decisions on the entirety of ESA’s programmes.

Ariane 6 joint update report, 21 May 2024

21/05/2024

ESA / Enabling & Support / Space Transportation / Ariane

The Ariane 6 Launcher Task Force consists of top management of ESA, as the overall Ariane 6 procuring entity and launch system architect, of the French space agency CNES as the launch base prime contractor, of ArianeGroup as the launcher system prime contractor and of Arianespace as the launch service provider. This group reports regularly on progress being made towards inaugural flight of the new Ariane 6 launcher.

Teams are narrowing down the launch period and the first attempt for launch will happen within the first two weeks of July 2024.We are on track and in line with the launch period that was communicated in November.

The tentative date for the first launch attempt will be given at ILA airshow in Berlin, Germany, held from 5 June to 9 June, where all the task force members will be present.

Key milestones towards inaugural flight:

On the way towards the first flight of Ariane 6, these milestones have been conducted since the last joint update:

April 29: Ariane 6 launch system qualification review, Les Mureaux, France

The conclusion of a final all-encompassing review of the Ariane 6 launch system (including launcher and ground segment) was delivered after four-weeks intensive work.

May 16: Payloads arrived in Kourou, French Guiana

The passengers for the first Ariane 6 arrived in Kourou and are being readied for integration.

Next milestones:

Mid-June: Ariane 6 launch system qualification review close-out

The closing of all aspects of the qualification for the Ariane 6 launch system will be approved mid June. This is the final step of the launch system qualification.

June: Upper composite transfer, and integration on the launcher, Kourou, French Guiana

The upper composite, consisting of the launcher adapter, the payloads and the fairing for Ariane 6 flight model-1 will be moved from the encapsulation hall to the launch pad.

June 18: Ariane 6 flight model-1 wet dress rehearsal, Kourou, French Guiana

The Ariane 6 will be fuelled on the launchpad and subsequently drained of fuel in preparation for launch.

Ariane 6 is an all-new design, created to succeed Ariane 5 as Europe's heavy-lift launch system. With Ariane 6's upper stage restart capability, Europe's launch capability will be tailored to the needs of multiple payload missions, for example to orbit satellite constellations. This autonomous capability to reach Earth orbit and deep space supports Europe's navigation, Earth observation, scientific and security programmes. Ongoing development of Europe's space transportation capabilities is made possible by the sustained dedication of thousands of talented people working in ESA's 22 Member States.
