Mercedes looked like the fastest car on the Hungaroring, but Verstappen will certainly be fighting for pole. Immediately behind is a tussle, with Aston Martin and Alpine appearing to be more competitive than McLaren and Ferrari: the Reds will have to work hard to get a good qualifying. The whole weekend of the Hungarian GP is live on Sky Sport F1 (channel 207)

HUNGARY GP, LIVE FOR FREE AND QUALIFYING

Finally we get back to talking about the track afterwards 2 weeks of controversy for the contact between Verstappen and Hamilton at Silverstone. On the Hungarian track the ready redemption of Red Bull was expected which, at least for now, seems to be slightly in difficulty compared to the Mercedes which seems to have adapted in the best way to the track. The RB16B is still not perfectly fine balanced but rest assured that tomorrow, Verstappen, will be fighting for pole. Already in

on other occasions we had seen problematic Fridays but with the work done between Friday and Saturday the engineers at Milton Keynes have always been able to give their top driver a winning car. Me tooFerrari was eagerly awaited this weekend but, in these free practice sessions, it did not seem to be competitive. There will also be a lot for the Maranello team work to be done especially to better prepare the qualification.

As written above, in these first free practice sessions, the Mercedes were the fastest cars in track both on medium tires (2 tenths on Verstappen) and on soft tires where the gap against Verstappen has risen to 3 tenths per lap. Bottas, in qualifying simulation, managed to get the better on Hamilton by just 27 thousandths of a second. The Finnish driver was the fastest in the first two sectors of the track while in the final one he paid 2 tenths of a second on the world champion. With a runway with over 60 ° C the soft tires have suffered a lot and many have arrived in the last sector with big problems of overheating at the rear. Bottas, if we analyze the split times, pushed more than Hamilton in the first two sectors but, in the final one, he suffered from the problems described above. At Mercedes there is satisfaction for the day today but they are aware that tomorrow and Sunday there will be a battle against the two Red Bulls.

Hamilton: “It was very hot today, it was a physically tiring day. The tires also suffered and melted on the track. It was really difficult to find the right balance. We are in a different situation than the one we experienced in previous events where we struggled with the front tires. This is a totally different track with different problems to deal with. It was interesting to try to figure out which way to go. The sensations on the track were not great. There is little grip and we slide a lot due to the immediate overheating of the tires, but we are all in the same boat ”. Bottas: “We have recently made improvements when it is hot. I don’t think we’re in a bad situation, but we don’t know the work the other teams have done today ”.


Verstappen paid a lot in the first sector to then defend well in the second and third. The Dutch driver was not at all happy with his car a cause of understeer which created big problems for him especially in the simulation of the race pace. At the end of free practice, the Dutch driver seemed calm anyway: “We didn’t have any particular difficulties, but we tried some changes between FP1 and FP2 and we need to check what worked and what didn’t. We need to improve in various aspects. We need to grow not only on the flying lap, but also on the race pace. There are many things to look into, but nothing that shocking. The gap from Mercedes

it didn’t feel so huge that it couldn’t be stitched up. Today was not an easy day abecause of the very high temperatures, but now we will analyze all the data ”.

Neither Ferrari nor McLaren shone in the fight for the role of third force. The Reds had to settle for P11 and P12 while the Woking team took P9 with Norris and P13 with Ricciardo. The SF21 did not shine, especially in the qualifying simulation, while, as we will see later, it defended itself on the race pace. Precisely for the race it will become important to understand with which tires the teams will be able to qualify in Q2. The soft, according to Pirelli estimates, is 9 tenths faster than the average while the delta between hard and average is estimated at 0.7 s. In these second free practice the teams have chosen to collect a large amount of data to be able to understand what the right strategy will be.

The soft suffered a lot on the race pace and if the temperatures on Sunday are similar to those of today, it will be essential to avoid it given the degradation we have seen on the track. Who seems to have already decided is there Mercedes and Red Bull who started their race simulation with both cars with the medium compound. They have the speed to get through the cut of Q2 with this compound.


If we analyze the data collected on the race pace we can see that the car that appears to be al top is the Mercedes with Verstappen trailing by more than 6 tenths. On the pace of the race, Perez did better than his teammate, proving that the Dutch driver was unable to make the most of it.


Among the mid-ranking teams, the best placed seems to be theAston Martin which it appeared to be faster than Ferrari and McLaren. The rhythm demonstrated by theAlpine both in simulation of qualifying and race pace.

The start-up Rocket Factory Augsburg, which belongs to Bremen-based OHB, wants to build a rocket that can transport satellites more cheaply than its US competitors. A weekly start is to take place from 2030. That would also be possible from a platform in the North Sea.

Dhe US technology entrepreneur Elon Musk is said to have cheap competition from Germany in his space business. At least as far as the launch offer for small satellites is concerned, which is considered a future market.

The start-up company Rocket Factory Augsburg (RFA) wants to attract customers with unprecedented low prices. “We want to build the best and cheapest rockets and micro launcher,” said founding investor Hans Steininger in a video conference. With freight costs of three million euros per take-off, it should be by far the lowest offer in the world.

The cost per kilogram of payload would be around 2500 euros, which is two to three times lower than that of the competition. A first start is planned for the end of 2022 / beginning of 2023.

A start would also be possible from a platform in the North Sea

The low prices could also be achieved through a launch site in the Azores. The 25-meter rocket could also take off at Europe’s spaceport in Kourou in French Guiana or on a platform in the North Sea, according to an analyst conference of the Bremen space company OHB, which is significantly involved in RFA.

The Augsburg company with almost 90 employees belongs to the group of three German start-ups that are looking for further investors with ambitious plans.

Isar Aerospace in Munich and HyImpulse from near Heilbronn, which recently focused on their special drive using candle wax, still need millions.

Even on a global scale, RFA is not alone in its plan to act as a launch service provider in the expected billion-dollar market for small or larger satellite fleets. Internationally there are around two dozen projects for small launchers, three from Germany alone.

As the space manager and investor Steiniger said, RFA will then “take off every Monday” in the future. The goal of 50 starts a year should be achieved by 2030 at the latest. In the first four or five years there should be 20 to 30 starts per year.

First of all, the aim is to gain market share. It should practically create a market, said the boss of MT Aerospace, a key supplier for Europe’s Ariane rocket. The cheap price of RFA is not seen as a disadvantage.

“Look at Aldi or Wal-Mart. They also have low prices, but attractive margins, ”said Steiniger with a comparison to retailers. “I want to have the same margins as Aldi.”

As far as is known, the RFA rocket has nine engines in the first of three stages and can carry up to 1,300 kilograms into space. The rocket is supposed to deliver the satellites in orbit with pinpoint accuracy.

The space company SpaceX also offers ride-sharing options for small satellites on the mighty Falcon 9 rocket. Their business model, however, is more of a large mass transport and not of deliberately bringing a smaller payload into a special orbit.

The space company OHB, which was founded 40 years ago and has been listed on the stock exchange for 20 years, would not only build satellites through Rocket Factory Augsburg, but also have a rocket at its disposal. In his presentation, OHB boss Marco Fuchs referred to the continuous expansion of the group to around one billion euros in sales with around 3,000 employees in 2020.

However, OHB recently suffered a severe setback because the Bremen-based company was not considered for a major order for further Galileo navigation satellites from the Europeans. So far, OHB has supplied the satellites. Instead, the order for 1.47 billion euros went to competitors Airbus and Thales Alenia Space.

OHB boss Fuchs confirmed that there was a lawsuit against the decision of the EU Commission, but did not want to give any details. He indicated that, as a listed company, OHB was also obliged to its shareholders, i.e. that it had to take all steps. OHB board member Lutz Bertling added that the lawsuit was well founded. An industry service (Space Intel Report) speculates that ex-OHB employees may have revealed details when they switched to Airbus.

Despite the elimination of new Galileo orders, OHB hopes to further expand the order backlog in 2021. A mysterious satellite (“GMS-T”) launched at the end of January for an unknown customer has led to speculation.

It was only shot into space to secure a transmission frequency that would otherwise have expired for a short time. OHB board member Bertling did not want to reveal the client. It is possible that three-digit numbers of satellites could be built for this customer in the future.

Tonight he defends Rosolini the world title Lion Fight one of the most eclectic characters in the world of Italian fighting

The great Muay Thai returns to Italy tonight in Rosolini (Syracuse) with Lion Fight 67, one of the very few world-class events of this sport to be held outside Thailand. And Enrico “the fog” Carrara is back who will defend the title in the Heavyweight category (-79 kilos in the LF classification). A unique fighter, under the Kurosaki Dojo in Pisa, the first muay thai gym to be born in Italy in 1979. Carrara began fighting in 2010, in these 11 years he has played 63 fights, obtaining 57 wins, 4 defeats and 2 draws in addition to making his numerous titles before the one in Lion Fight. In fact, he was Bronze twice at the World Championships and once Bronze at the European Championships as an amateur. As a pro, on the other hand, he has won 2 Italian titles, as well as being highlighted in important international events such as Bellator Kickboxing, Oktagon, Thai Fight and Thaiboxe Mania. The apotheosis last year in Rosolini, when he beat the Greek champion Ioannis Sofokleus by knockout, snatching his LF belt.

Masked

Carrara is known in the muay thai world for the power of his shots (he has 50% of wins by knockout) and for a unique feature: every time he steps into the ring he wears the mask of a character from a horror film. “That for horror is a passion that I inherited from my uncle with whom I watched them as a child, even if I was always scared – he laughs -. One day, when I was fighting for a short time, I told about my passion in the gym and my teacher at the time, Stefano Giannessi, gave me the idea of ​​entering the ring with the mask of a horror character. I liked it immediately and at the next meeting I presented myself with Jason’s one from the Friday 13th series. On Saturday they will also wear one of my second ones, we’ll put those of the characters from the Judgment Day series ”.

Against negativity

So is Carrara a kind of “blood lover”? Nothing could be more false: the Tuscan athlete is a person who has dedicated his life to fighting negative emotions even before his opponents. “By profession I am a holistic operator. I have a master’s degree in psychology and in September I will have the state exam but I also attended a three-year school with Professor Franco Nocchi, a teacher of educational psychology who has a psychological approach that goes beyond talking with the patient. From him I learned the principles of traditional Chinese medicine. I use techniques such as pressure on the same acupuncture points, cups, chromotherapy and autogenic training. And I use these techniques on myself by applying an emotional protocol every morning that also uses pressure on the meridians and points of Chinese medicine “. The total matches of LF 67 will be 6. In addition to Carrara there will be 4 other Italian, 5 European and 2 American athletes. Among the latter there is the still undefeated Chip Moraza Pollard who will defend the weights Cruiser (-84 KG) against the Slovak Jakub Benko, multi-titled champion in other organizations.

The first Chinese rover in history successfully landed on Mars on Saturday, May 15, 2021. The rover named Zuhrong touched the surface of the Red Planet within the vast Utopia Planitia plain. Shortly after landing, even a Chinese flag was unfurled, further emphasizing the historic and international importance of the achievement – China was thus the second country in the world, after the United States, to successfully land on Mars with a robotic vehicle. In addition, the rover is supported from Mars orbit by the Tianwen-1 spacecraft, which performs scientific and navigational measurements and is a kind of communication intermediary between the Martian rover and the Earth.

Nearly 70 Martian days have passed since the landing of the Zhurong mission on the Red Planet (a Martian day is about 40 minutes longer than Earth day). The rover itself successfully left the lander’s platform a week after reaching the surface of Mars – on May 22 this year. Initially, the data reaching Earth was sparse, but soon the CNSA presented pictures showing Zhurong’s vehicle touching the Martian ground with its wheels. The rover quickly took to photographing local field formations, and then was directed to implement the objectives of the exploratory phase of the mission.

Its tasks were carried out in the southern part of Utopia Planitia, a place where the shoreline of the ancient Martian sea was located a long time ago. The site was chosen for a reason, because of the hope of finding traces of ancient geological deposits or even potential fossils. Scientists also suspect that in the rover’s workplace, or rather under the surface, there is quite a large volume of water ice. The mission is also expected to investigate the physical properties of the atmosphere and rocky surface.

As reported in Chinese broadcasts, the Zhurong rover can collect images every day using a high-resolution navigation camera – taking pictures of the terrain at any stage of its route. In addition, a recorder of the geological composition of the surface and a multispectral camera enable the vehicle to detect more interesting rock formations or sand dunes, which may have high scientific value.

Despite a series of positive reports from the course of the mission, the published image data of these activities did not appear too much – some commentators emphasized that China is very cautious about reporting its exploits on Mars and is sparingly managing information about the status of the mission. From time to time, however, more and more interesting photo and video materials were dosed.

One such case was presented by the National Space Administration’s Exploration and Space Program Center on Friday 23 July. The Chinese rover was supposed to cover a distance of 585 meters on the surface of the Red Planet at that time. Zhurong reached one of the local dunes and took some pictures of the dune landscape. Research was also carried out on the structure of the dune itself and its surroundings. Part of the high-resolution photo material has been made public for general inspection.

The activities related to the Chinese rover on Mars strengthen China’s position in terms of its status in the hierarchy of space exploring nations. This, however, is only a manifestation of the broader ambitions that the Middle Kingdom has in this matter. In the coming years, China plans to start manned missions beyond low Earth orbit and to expand a research station on the moon. In the coming decades, China is expected to compete for priority in manned Mars exploration.

Back to the events of the day.

The French judo team won the gold medal in the mixed event, Saturday July 31, against Japan.

After a dark Friday, Saturday was a much better day for the French delegation with six new medals. The most beautiful, gold, came from French judokas. Teddy Riner, Clarisse Agbegnenou, Axel Clerget, Romane Dicko, Sarah-Léonie Cysique and Guillaume Chaine won in the final of the mixed team event by beating Japan, yet three-time world champion in an event which made its appearance at the Games Olympic this year. This is the eighth medal of the French judo delegation in these Olympics, a total never reached so far in an Olympic tournament.

This is one of the unpleasant surprises of these Games. Gold medalist in Rio, the discus thrower Mélina Robert-Michon was eliminated on Saturday in qualifying. The discobolus failed to take one of the first twelve places in the competition with a better throw at 60.88 m, far from the 65.30 m achieved in June.

“[P]rivate firms are driving a major expansion in space tech developments, as the EPO also noted a three-fold increase in the number of cosmonautics patent applications filed at the agency in the decade between 2007 and 2017.”

This July has been a landmark month for the commercial space sector thanks in large part to the determination of two tech billionaires: Richard Branson, business magnate and founder of the Virgin Group; and Jeff Bezos, the former CEO of e-commerce titan Amazon.com. Both of these icons of business entrepreneurship reached the outer limits of Earth’s gravity to slip into space for a brief moment in recent weeks—Branson in the VSS Unity, owned by his Virgin Galactic spaceflight company, and Bezos in the New Shepard craft developed by his Blue Origin firm.

The successful spaceflights for both Branson and Bezos are breathing life into the nascent space tourism industry, as many others with the wealth to pay for a seat to outer space are lining up for the opportunity. The same day that New Shepard crossed the Kármán line, Bezos announced that Blue Origin has sold nearly $100 million worth of tickets to the edge of space with plans to take passengers to the Kármán line twice more during 2021. While ticket prices for the New Shepard have not been disclosed, tickets for a ride on Virgin Galactic’s VSS Unity reportedly run anywhere from $200,000 to $500,000—a sum that not every adventurous spirit likely can afford.

Space Tech Sector Sees Dramatic Patenting Growth From Private R&D Firms

Indeed, private space firms seem to be driving research and development for the entire space industry over the past decade or so. On July 21, one day after New Shepard took Bezos and others to space, the European Patent Office (EPO) published the results of a study into global patenting trends in cosmonautics. The EPO found that 85% of European patents related to spaceflight are owned by private companies, with 13 of the top 15 firms filing the most patent applications at the EPO covering space technologies being private R&D firms from the U.S., Japan or Europe. Those private firms are driving a major expansion in space tech developments as the EPO also noted a three-fold increase in the number of cosmonautics patent applications filed at the agency in the decade between 2007 and 2017. Interestingly, despite China’s growing dominance in the global tech world, the EPO found that “the overall increasing trend would be present even if the activity of Chinese applicants were disregarded.” Within the entire space tech sector, the areas seeing the largest amount of patent filing activity in recent years include propulsion, space systems and spacecraft.

While the EPO study focuses on firms like Airbus, Northrop Grumman and others who file a great number of patent applications across a wide spectrum of space technologies, doubtlessly the space race this July between Bezos and Branson has captured much of the world’s collective attention this summer. Seemingly left out of this equation is Elon Musk, another well-known personality from the business world who has taken efforts to achieve spaceflight through his firm SpaceX. However, while Virgin Galactic and Blue Origin may have both touched the boundary of space with live passengers, SpaceX recently signed a $178 million contract with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) for a planned October 2024 launch of NASA’s Europa Clipper mission that plans to fly-by Jupiter’s moon Europa 45 times to survey that moon for conditions suitable for sustaining life. The SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket launching the Europa Clipper mission is a commercial alternative to NASA’s Space Launch System, which the space agency uses for super heavy-lift launches for missions to the outermost parts of our solar system and beyond.

Blue Origin has itself been jockeying for position among the firms vying for NASA contracts, highlighting the importance that the government space exploration sector still has despite the rise of private R&D firms. On July 26, Blue Origin published an open letter by Jeff Bezos and addressed to NASA Administrator Bill Nelson in which the company offered to waive up to $2 billion in payments from the government for services provided by Blue Origin to develop a Human Landing System (HLS). The offer was spurred in large part by NASA’s $2.89 billion contract awarded this April to SpaceX to develop the next crewed lander that will reach Earth’s moon. “Without competition, a short time into the contract, NASA will find itself with limited options as it attempts to negotiate missed deadlines, design changes, and cost overruns,” Bezos’ letter noted.

The billionaire space race is ramping up at the same time that Bezos is making a major career change, having recently stepped away from serving Amazon as CEO. Although he will still serve the e-commerce company he founded in 1994 as executive chairman and remains the company’s largest shareholder, Bezos’ decision to hand Amazon’s reins over to incoming CEO Andy Jassy, who previously helped to direct Amazon’s cloud computing division, likely signals that Blue Origin will become a much bigger focus of Bezos’ famed relentlessness in his business pursuits.

Patents on Technologies Supporting the Billionaire Space Race

U.S. Pat. 10822122, Vertical Landing Systems for Space Vehicles and Associated Methods

Blue Origin’s New Shepard spacecraft is a vertical-takeoff, vertical-landing (VTVF) suborbital launch vehicle. The VTVF launch style of the craft has enabled Blue Origin to develop New Shepard for use with a reusable rocket; Bezos’ space firm first achieved a successful relanding of the VTVF launch system’s rocket in November 2015. The following month, Elon Musk’s SpaceX achieved the same feat with a vertical landing of its Falcon 9 rocket.

The ‘122 patent, issued to Blue Origin last November, covers a space vehicle system comprising a landing pad, a plurality of cables defining an opening above the landing pad, a plurality of temporary restraints mounted to the cable support structure and releasably secured to corresponding cables, and a space vehicle having an engagement device to engage the cables such that the space vehicle is temporarily supported above the landing pad. The resulting vertical landing system was designed to reduce the costs of space travel by improving upon reusable space launch systems employed by NASA, which still required expensive reconditioning before rocket reuse.

U.S. Pat. 8424808, Compensating for Wind Prior to Engaging Airborne Propulsion Devices

Another technology developed by Blue Origin to reduce the costs of spaceflight is reflected in the ‘808 patent, issued in April 2013, which covers a method performed by a reusable launch vehicle for compensating for wind prior to engaging propulsion during approach to landing in a powered slowdown configuration. The method includes beginning an unpowered descent, determining a rotation angle corresponding to a reusable launch vehicle’s attitude, which is a measurement of the vehicle’s orientation relative to Earth’s horizon, and then commanding a second rotation angle corresponding to a second attitude that causes the vehicle to maintain a vertical descent path. The method results in preventing any substantial deviation in a vertical descent path at the moment that a propulsion device is engaged to reduce vertical descent speed.

U.S. Pat. 7195207, Winged Aircraft

A search of patents assigned to Virgin Galactic actually yields zero results when browsing the USPTO’s Patent Full-Text Database but the ‘207 patent is assigned to Mojave Aerospace Ventures, an aerospace company that in 2004 won a $10 million competition for manned spaceflight technologies that Virgin Galactic’s Richard Branson wound up licensing from the firm. Filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission indicate that Virgin Galactic continues to hold a spacecraft technology license agreement for commercializing Mojave’s spaceflight technologies, and diagrams from the ‘207 patent bear a striking resemblance to the VSS Unity recently taken to the limits of Earth’s gravity with Branson in tow.

The ‘207 patent covers a spacecraft with a fuselage, wings extending from the fuselage and having aft sections with outer ends supporting rearwardly extending tail booms, and an elevating system for moving the aft wing sections from a normal airfoil shape to an elevated position producing high drag for slowing the spacecraft during atmospheric reentry and retracting the aft sections for a controlled horizontal runway landing. Issued in November 2005, the patent covers technologies producing the desired amount of high aerodynamic drag along with low structural and thermal loads during atmospheric reentry.

U.S. Pat. 11056801, Antenna Aperture in Phased Array Antenna Systems

Although the summer space race has focused on Branson and Bezos, Elon Musk is certainly never far from the news headline cycle. While the other billionaires have been making strides towards getting more humans to space, SpaceX has been developing a Starlink satellite broadband Internet system that makes use of phased array antennas. Such antennas are designed to improve satellite communications by using a series of fixed antennas configured in such a way that steers radio frequency (RF) transmissions from a satellite to a receiver.

The technology covered by the ‘801 patent, which was issued to SpaceX this July, includes a phased array antenna system having an antenna lattice containing a plurality of antenna elements in a space tapered configuration, and a beamformer lattice containing a plurality of beamformer elements that are electrically coupled to the plurality of antenna elements. Advantages of this invention include the ability to increase bandwidth in satellite communications while reducing the weight, size, manufacturing costs and power requirements of the antenna array.

U.S. Pat. 10844464, Niobium Metal Alloy

Niobium metal alloys have applications in the world of spacecraft because of its characteristics, including high strength and oxidation resistance at low weight. Photos available through Flickr identify the second stage nozzle of SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket as being composed of niobium metal alloy. C-103 niobium alloy has been employed in spacecraft construction for many decades, even being used in the main engine of the Apollo lunar module.

The ‘464 patent, issued last November to Space Exploration Technologies Corporation, claims a niobium metal alloy comprising vanadium as 5.75% to 12% of weight, hafnium as 5% to 13% of weight, titanium or zirconium as 0.25% to 2.5% of weight, and niobium as 77% to 85% of weight. Although C-103 niobium alloy can withstand high stress at elevated temperatures as well as high frequency levels at cryogenic temperatures, the resulting niobium alloy of the ‘464 patent has lower weight and improved operating temperature yield strength than the C-103 alloy.

While the other billionaires have been making strides towards getting more humans to space, SpaceX has been developing a Starlink satellite broadband Internet system that makes use of phased array antennas. Such antennas are designed to improve satellite communications by using a series of fixed antennas configured in such a way that steers radio frequency (RF) transmissions from a satellite to a receiver.

The technology covered by the ‘801 patent, which was issued to SpaceX this July, includes a phased array antenna system having an antenna lattice containing a plurality of antenna elements in a space tapered configuration, and a beamformer lattice containing a plurality of beamformer elements that are electrically coupled to the plurality of antenna elements. Advantages of this invention include the ability to increase bandwidth in satellite communications while reducing the weight, size, manufacturing costs and power requirements of the antenna array.

U.S. Pat. 10844464, Niobium Metal Alloy

Niobium metal alloys have applications in the world of spacecraft because of its characteristics, including high strength and oxidation resistance at low weight. Photos available through Flickr identify the second stage nozzle of SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket as being composed of niobium metal alloy. C-103 niobium alloy has been employed in spacecraft construction for many decades, even being used in the main engine of the Apollo lunar module.

The ‘464 patent, issued last November to Space Exploration Technologies Corporation, claims a niobium metal alloy comprising vanadium as 5.75% to 12% of weight, hafnium as 5% to 13% of weight, titanium or zirconium as 0.25% to 2.5% of weight, and niobium as 77% to 85% of weight. Although C-103 niobium alloy can withstand high stress at elevated temperatures as well as high frequency levels at cryogenic temperatures, the resulting niobium alloy of the ‘464 patent has lower weight and improved operating temperature yield strength than the C-103 alloy.

Up, up, up and away! Congratulations to Rocket Lab for launching their 21st Electron mission: It’s a Little Chile Up Here.

The Electron rocket lifted off from Rocket Lab’s Launch Complex 1 in New Zealand at 2 a.m. Eastern on July 29, successfully launching an experimental satellite for the U.S. Space Force, after suffering a failure in mid-May.

The demonstration satellite – called Monolith – is sponsored by the Air Force Research Laboratory, and was deployed 52 minutes after liftoff into a 600-kilometer (378 miles) orbit at an inclination of 37 degrees, reports Space News.

“We are off the pad and on our way to space once again, with successful liftoff from Rocket Lab’s Launch Complex 1,” Rocket Lab senior communication advisor Murielle Baker said during a live webcast of the launch.

With Monolith now in orbit, its mission will be “to explore and demonstrate the use of a deployable sensor, where the sensor’s mass is a substantial fraction of the total mass of the spacecraft, changing the spacecraft’s dynamic properties and testing ability to maintain spacecraft attitude control,” Rocket Lab representatives wrote in a mission press kit.

The 59-foot-tall (18 meters) Electron rocket provides dedicated rides to space for small satellites. The rocket now has 21 launches under its belt, including four this year.

On May 15, an Electron rocket launch did not go well. The rocket’s second stage shut down too early, resulting in the loss of the mission’s payload, two satellites for the geospatial intelligence company BlackSky Global. That failure was the second in less than a year for the Electron and the third in 20 launches.

The problem was traced back to an upper-stage engine igniter. “This induced a corruption of signals within the engine computer that caused the Rutherford engine’s thrust vector control (TVC) to deviate outside nominal parameters and resulted in the engine computer commanding zero pump speed, shutting down the engine,” company representatives wrote in an anomaly update on July 19.

The fix for the igniter problem amounted to implementing “redundancies in the ignition system to prevent any future reoccurrence, including modifications to the igniter’s design and manufacture,” they added.

Does today’s mission patch seem familiar? ‘It’s a Little Chile Up Here’ is a nod to the beloved green chile of New Mexico where the Space Test Program is based. This is our 2nd launch for STP after ‘That’s a Funny Looking Cactus’ in 2019. Spot the green chile in both patches!

Folks may remember that Rocket Lab has great fun in naming their missions. In the case of this latest mission, the team took into account that the U.S. Department of Defense’s Space Test Program and the Rocket Systems Launch Program are both based at Kirtland Air Force Base in New Mexico.

And New Mexico is famous for its green chiles and chile-infused cuisine, which explains the name Rocket Lab gave to the mission: “It’s A Little Chile Up Here.”

If the future of the movement against the health pass is obviously difficult to anticipate, the third consecutive Saturday of mobilization testifies to the installation of a protest, minority but very determined, very lively, sometimes radical, against the policy of the government. A demonstration which ended, Place de la Bastille, with clashes between several hundred demonstrators and the police and gendarmerie forces, mobilized in numbers to supervise the rally.

The movement is not limited to anti-vaccine opponents. It is characterized first of all by the great diversity of profiles of the demonstrators singing “Freedom, freedom, freedom!” “. Alone, as a couple, with family, with friends, of all ages, white, black, employees, retirees, some vaccinated, others who refuse. Among the faces, the motivations, the personal stories, it is the extreme diversity of the profiles that is striking. “We keep warm, all together, while we all suffer sometimes very harsh criticism, sometimes insults, from those around us. It was visceral, for me, to come, because they undermine our freedoms ”, says Isabelle, 39, employed in the social sector – very critical of the media and worried about the possible repercussions, which they consider to be partisan, most of the demonstrators demand anonymity. This Saturday July 31, it was his first demonstration. She will come back, she swears.

Spanish tennis player Paula Badosa was forced to withdraw from her quarterfinal match for the Olympic Games women’s singles against Czech Marketa Vondrousova on Wednesday due to heatstroke.

Badosa lost the first set 6-3 before requiring a medical time-out on court 4 before the start of the second set.

After a long attention, the Spanish could not continue and announced her withdrawal from the match, before leaving the court in a wheelchair.

“I have suffered a heat stroke as all of you have seen and I did not feel fit to continue competing in the match,” said Badosa, in comments posted by the Tokyo 2020 site.

“Coupled with the pressure of the competition, how special these days are, these are things that happen in sport, and I had to traverse that terrain today.

“It was a shame to end my participation in this way. The conditions have been demanding from day one, we tried to adapt as best as possible, but today the bodywork has not resisted as necessary ”, added Badosa.

Marketa Vondrousova, who had previously defeated Naomi Osaka, advanced to the women’s semifinals where she will face Ukraine’s Elina Svitolina.

Later, 23-year-old Badosa retired from his mixed doubles match with compatriot Pablo Carreño Busta.

The Spaniards were due to face Polish pair Iga Swiatek and Lukasz Kubot in the first round on Wednesday.

Badosa and Carreño Busta were replaced in the draw by the French Fiona Ferro and Pierre-Hugues Herbert, who ended up losing 6-3 7-6 to the Polish duo.

“I leave with a feeling of pride for having given absolutely everything for my country, for having represented it in the most professional way that I could,” said Badosa.

“I am going to focus on recovering, working to be well and giving myself. the opportunity to return to an event like this, ”he added.

His retirement comes after both Novak Djokovic and Daniil Medvedev publicly criticized the Tokyo 2020 match schedule.

Both players have said that it would be preferable to start matches later in the evening, when conditions have calmed down.

During his singles match against Fabio Fognini, Medvedev told the referee: “I am a fighter, I will finish the match, but I can die. If I die, will the ITF take responsibility (sic)?”
