A micro-garden at 6 thousand Km from Earth to grow fresh vegetables intended for future space explorations. GREENCUBE has been engineered by an Italian scientific team and it will be included, for the first time, on a mini satellite which will be launched during the first journey of the European Space Agency (ESA)'s official vector VEGA-C.

Cross post:

Source: One of the OneWeb satellite launches from Baikonur postponed.

Source: one of the OneWeb satellite launches from Baikonur was postponed to 2022 for the sake of economy

MOSCOW, June 21 - RIA Novosti. One of the four launches of British communications satellites OneWeb from the Baikonur cosmodrome , planned in 2021, has been postponed until next year to save money, a source in the rocket and space industry told RIA Novosti.

In April, another agency source reported that launches on behalf of OneWeb from Baikonur this year are slated for August 2 and 26, September 18 and the end of December.

"Now the schedule is as follows: August 2, September 9 and the end of December. One launch has been postponed until 2022 in order not to pay additional money to Kazakhstan for using the area of ​​the fall of the first stage of the Soyuz-2 launch vehicle," the agency's source said.

Another source confirmed this information, adding that the deployment of the OneWeb grouping will not be affected by this, since the missing launch is planned to be carried out from the Vostochny cosmodrome on October 7.

In June 2021, it became known that the Senate of the Parliament of Kazakhstan approved the ratification of an agreement with Russia on cooperation in the implementation of launches from Baikonur with Soyuz-2 missiles of OneWeb satellites in the northern direction to circumpolar orbits. It regulates the procedure for the use by the Russian side of the area of ​​the fall of the first stage of the Soyuz-2 in the Kostanay region of  Kazakhstan . According to it, the fee for using the fall area number 120A will be 460 thousand dollars per year, taking into account no more than three launches, and in the case of additional launches, the payment is made in the amount of 50 thousand dollars for each additional launch.

The contract between Arianespace and OneWeb for 21 launches of Soyuz rockets from the Baikonur, Vostochny and Kuru cosmodromes was signed in June 2015. In September 2020, OneWeb announced that the number of contracted Soyuz launches had been reduced to 19. Seven had already been completed: two from Baikonur, four from Vostochny and one from Kuru, 218 satellites were launched into orbit.

OneWeb intends to begin providing commercial satellite communications services in late 2021, and by the end of 2022, it intends to deploy a constellation of 648 first-generation satellites, which will provide broadband Internet access to users around the world thanks to full coverage of the Earth's surface.

For now the plan is that VS26 with OneWeb will be in November and VS27 with Galileo - in December.
Based on what ?

After the November/December launch, Verhoef said, “We will do two more launches relatively quickly, one after the other, at intervals of about six or seven months. At that point we will have six new satellites in orbit. That’s two extra in every orbital plane. And then the remaining three launches, six more satellites, will come after that, to complete the batch-three series.”

According to current plans, if the new Ariane 6 is ready, the big launcher will take the last six satellites into orbit. “There will be an Ariane 6 maiden flight, and then we will be its first normal ‘paying’ customer, so to speak,” Verhoef said.

Late - Galileo-FOC FM27, Galileo-FOC FM28 - Ariane 62 - Kourou ELA-4 (or Early 2023)

There are 12 batch 3 satellites. The last 6 should be launched with Ariane 6.
Sounds like a 3rd Soyuz launch is planned. That would be new.  ???

ARIANE 6
Access to space for all applications under the best conditions!
https://www.arianespace.com/vehicle/ariane-6/#in-depth
Quote
Ariane 6 will provide Arianespace with new levels of efficiency and flexibility to meet customers' launch services needs across a full range of commercial and institutional missions, with first flight planned for the end of 2022.

"end of" has been removed from the Arianespace website; it now just says "in 2022". The only other clue about first Ariane 6 launch is this:

Quote
Aschbacher suggested that schedule could see more delays. The independent assessment, he said, will “make sure that we can do everything we need to do to launch on time.” He later defined “on time” as being before the next ESA ministerial meeting, which is tentatively scheduled for late 2022.
https://spacenews.com/europe-proposes-launcher-alliance/

Eric Berger - who generally reports agressive against European and Russian space activities - confused the date of the meeting with the date of the launch and wrote "Europe hopes for a late 2022 launch". Which then spread over Wikipedia and other media.

There is no (more) communicated "late 2022" launch target. They try to launch it before the meeting, which in past years happend in October, November or December.

Quote
Soyuz-ST-B/Fregat-MT Galileo pair launches = FM23 & 24 late Nov/early Dec 2021; FM25 & 26 mid-2022; FM27 & 28 late 2022/early 2023.
Second Ariane 6 flight = Ariane 62, Galileo FM29 and 30.

Besides of Ariane 6 availability, Galileo payload readiness might slip as well. So I don't see clear evidence yet that FM27 & 28 switch to Soyuz.

ArianeGroup wins ESA’s “ASTRIS”

competition for an even more versatile Ariane 6

Bremen / Munich, 13 July 2021

 In the framework of the Ariane 6 Competitiveness Improvement Programme,
the European Space Agency has appointed ArianeGroup as prime contractor
for the development of a complementary stage for Ariane 6, the “ASTRIS” kickstage.

 ArianeGroup development activities are worth €90 million

 Developed by ArianeGroup in Germany, ASTRIS is a true additional stage,
called a “kick-stage”, that will further increase the versatility of Ariane 6 and
enhance performance for new types of mission

Powered by the BERTA engine with storable propellants, ASTRIS will increase
the capability to inject satellites directly into geostationary orbit (GEO), allow
electrically-powered satellites to reach their orbits in a few hours instead of in
a few months, and facilitate missions to the Moon and deep space

 The first Ariane 6 mission equipped with the ASTRIS kick-stage is scheduled
for 2024

Cross-post re: OneWeb Flight 9:
Sources reported about the postponement of the Soyuz launch from Baikonur.

01:08 14.07.2021

Sources announced the postponement of the Soyuz launch from Baikonur due to the unavailability of OneWeb satellites

MOSCOW, July 14 - RIA Novosti. The launch of the British communications satellites OneWeb by the Soyuz-2.1b carrier rocket from the Baikonur cosmodrome, scheduled for August 5, has been postponed for at least a week due to the unavailability of the vehicles, three sources in the rocket and space industry told RIA Novosti.

Earlier, another source in the industry told RIA Novosti that the launch of OneWeb satellites is scheduled for August 5. Later, Roskosmos confirmed that the launch was scheduled for early August.

"The launch of OneWeb satellites has been postponed for at least a week due to problems encountered during their production," the source said.

According to another source, the start was tentatively postponed to August 13, but this date depends on how quickly the problems are resolved.

Another interlocutor of RIA Novosti said that for the launch on August 5, 34 OneWeb satellites had to be delivered to the cosmodrome on July 13, but this did not happen. He also confirmed a start shift by at least a week.

<snip>According to sources in the rocket and space industry, another launch in the interests of OneWeb from Vostochny is scheduled for October, three launches are also expected from Baikonur in August, September and December, and one launch from Kuru in November.

Cubesat payload aboard VV19:
LEDSAT students travel to Brno, readying their satellite for launch

16/07/2021
<snip>
15 July 2021 marks a major milestone in the story of student satellite LEDSAT. Four students from Sapienza University of Rome, Italy, have travelled to Brno in Czech Republic, and are visiting the integration facility of SAB LS. The mission: install their miniature satellite into its CubeSat dispenser in preparation for launch just a few weeks from now!

Absolutely amazing!  At Northrop Grumman seeing James Webb Space Telescope in final stages of test prior to shipping for launch.  Launching in late November!
