Firefly now targeting mid-October for Alpha launch. In a recent interview, Firefly's founder, Tom Markusic, said the company has lost a month of schedule due to a test-stand fire in January and perhaps one to two months due to COVID-19. "The plan is now mid-October this year, which does represent a couple of months slip from earlier," he told Connectivity Business about the Alpha rocket's first launch. "Overall, I think we've been very fortunate in both incidents that we weren't set back for a longer duration."

Another issue is the availability of the SLS. The first three SLS rockets are earmarked for the Artemis program, including the uncrewed Artemis 1 mission launching no earlier than late 2021, the Artemis 2 crewed test flight in early 2023, and the Artemis 3 lunar landing mission by the end of 2024. Thus, the earliest an SLS would be available for launching Europa Clipper would be 2025, even though the spacecraft itself will be ready to launch by 2024.

Glaze noted that availability of an SLS before 2025 “is not guaranteed” given demand for the vehicle for the Artemis program. “The launch vehicle remains very uncertain,” she said. “It is still a concern and an increasing concern.”

Europa Clipper has, for now, been keeping open both the option of launching on SLS as well as on a commercial alternative. Doing so, Glaze said, costs the mission about $30 million a year, but will increase if NASA doesn’t finalize the launch vehicle by the time of December’s critical design review.

AFAIK only 2 Falcon 9 have been contracted. Are you sure for flights 3 and 4 ? Thanks.

Nope, so far only two launch contracts have been issued.

Two days ago @northropgrumman informed its employees it was not moving forward with the Omega rocket, but there has still been no public announcement.

Sunset is 7:48pm. The launch window is instantaneous. The launch time remains roughly the same daily. The first stage will land back at the Cape about eight minutes after launch. A Falcon 9 is scheduled to launch the eleventh batch of Starlink internet satellites from pad 39A on August 29 at 10:30am EDT. Other upcoming launches include more batches of Starlink satellites on September TBA. And a Falcon 9 from pad 40 will launch the fourth Block III GPS satellite on September 30, sometime between 8pm and midnight EDT. The next Crew Dragon, Crew-1, is scheduled for launch from pad 39A on October 23 at 5:47am EDT. The launch window is instantaneous (sunrise is not until 7:28am). The launch time gets 22-26 min. earlier each day.

SpaceX to Launch Masten Lunar Mission in 2022
Launch to deliver Masten's lunar lander carrying NASA and commercial payloads.

PRESS RELEASE  UPDATED: AUG 26, 2020 12:34 CDT
Masten's XL-1 Lunar Lander
MOJAVE, Calif., August 26, 2020 (Newswire.com) - Masten Space Systems announced today that it has selected SpaceX to launch Masten Mission One (MM1). As part of MM1, Masten’s lunar lander will deliver nine NASA-sponsored science and technology demonstration experiments and several commercial payloads to the lunar south pole.

“Having SpaceX’s proven launch success behind us is not only great for us, but it’s great for our customers,” said Masten chief executive officer, Sean Mahoney. “We share a common vision with SpaceX, and that makes this more than a partnership. It’s more like a dream team.”

Masten’s first mission to the Moon, MM1 is a collaboration with NASA’s Commercial Lunar Payload Services (CLPS) Project Office. The Masten XL-1 lunar lander is scheduled to touch down on the lunar south pole in 2022, carrying a suite of NASA-sponsored scientific instruments and various payloads from commercial space customers.

“We are thrilled to be launching Masten’s Mission One to the Moon in 2022,” said SpaceX Senior Director of Commercial Sales Stephanie Bednarek. “SpaceX was founded upon the goal of extending humanity’s reach beyond Earth, and it’s exciting to take part in a mission with many partners who share the same vision.”

Masten says December:

Lockheed Martin Selected as New Flight System Partner for Lunar Trailblazer
18 August 2020

In July 2020, Lockheed Martin Space was selected as the new partner for Lunar Trailblazer’s flight system. The Denver-based organization will design and build the spacecraft, integrate the instruments, and work with rideshare services to ready Lunar Trailblazer as a secondary payload for launch. The switch was made after the original spacecraft partner ran into design and cost challenges.

“We’re excited to partner with Lockheed for Lunar Trailblazer, leveraging Lockheed’s growing small satellite business as well as their decades of experience in enabling planetary exploration”, said Lunar Trailblazer’s Principal Investigator, Bethany Ehlmann.

The new version of the Lunar Trailblazer spacecraft will use chemical propulsion to get to the Moon, shaving months off the journey relative to the previous electric propulsion implementation. The spacecraft will weigh approximately 200 kg and fit comfortably in the ESPA Grande standard small satellite volume allocation.

The next big milestone for the team is the September Flight System Review, the last of 5 “table top”, project-convened reviews, en route to Lunar Trailblazer’s preliminary design review in mid-October.
