Japan launches climate change satellite on Sept. 30 and launches a manned space station by the end of 2017
The first U.S.-made rocket on an unmanned mission will launch at the beginning of 2018.
It was first demons수원 출장 안마trated earlier this week at the U.S. Air Force Association’s National Space Symposium at Marshall Space Flight Center on Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
The Air Force will be the first defense contractor to use the Space Launch System, or SLS, the same technology which the Trump administration is proposing to launch its own space station. The two projects were approved by the president and Congress in December after a nearly six-year delay.
The test flight is set to begin on Saturday at 8 p.m. EDT, Air Force officials said.
„We look forward to launching the first ever crewed SLS vehicle aboard the NROL-31 mission,“ said Mike Connor, associate administrator for space, defense and international cooperation, the military’s top weapons systems official. „We know we’ll be providing a muc창원출장안마h larger stage, a bigger crew and much more fuel to achieve this mission, which is critical for our national security.“
The next step is a July 12 launch by the shuttle’s shuttlecock.
The SLS could use a large space station that could house four astronauts, said Air Force Cmdr. Matt Jones, deputy program executive officer for the program. That could cost a total o슈퍼 카지노f about $100 billion.
„This will be the first time SLS is actually launching and the first time it’s been a crewed flight to a test location that has the capacity of sending us to Mars,“ Jones said.
The Air Force plans to begin deploying its new SLS by 2020. It will take more than a decade to complete the design and build of the rocket that takes the astronauts to the rocket’s rocket pit.
But the initial test launches of two SLS engines could provide a boost to America’s space program.
The two SLS rockets will be able to reach the International Space Station without having to fly to the moon, increasing America’s international presence, the Air Force said.
NASA, the U.S. commercial space industry and private industry were instrumental in helping with development and testing of SLS, which was originally conceived for the Space Shuttle in the early 1990s.
In June 2015, Lockheed Martin, Boeing and SpaceX became joint operators of the rocket as part of a joint venture known as the Commercial Resupply Services Agreement
