UCF-led NASA mission at risk after Ariane 5 rocket experiences failure

NASA's GOLD mission continues despite launch anomaly NASA's GOLD mission continues despite launch anomaly

"The launcher's liftoff took place on January 25, 2018 at 7:20 pm".

The French company's Ariane 5 rocket took off at 10.20pm UTC with a payload of two commercial satellites - SES-14 and Al Yah 3 - and NASA's latest instrument, the Global-scale Observations of the Limb and Disk (GOLD) created to examine and monitor the border between Earth and space.

Two satellites placed into incorrect orbits by an Ariane 5 that suffered an anomaly during its January 25 launch can be recovered and placed into their desired orbits, their operators said January 26.

"We know that launch is always hard, and tonight Ariane 5 has had an anomaly, so let's take time now to better understand the situation of the satellites", Israel said in an update shorty after the launch.

The Ariane 5 rocket has garnered a reputation for its reliability: it has successfully flown 83 consecutive missions, with its last total failure occurring in 2002. "Indeed, we lost contact with the launcher a few seconds after ignition of the upper stage". "The orbit is usable but will require several years worth of satellite station-keeping propellant to get the payloads to the right final orbit". SES 14 and Al Yah 3 are communicating with their respective control centers.

"This lack of telemetry lasted throughout the rest of powered flight", it added. Telemetry was never regained, but engineers were able to confirm later that both satellites had, in fact, been released from the upper stage.

British judge to decide next month on Assange's bid for possible freedom
The WikiLeaks founder has been living in Ecuadorian embassy in London for over five years. Assange still faces arrest for skipping bail if he leaves the embassy.

Both spacecraft launched on Flight VA241 - SES-14 and Al Yah 3 - have been acquired and are operating in orbit nominally, despite a trajectory deviation experienced during the mission. "Both missions are continuing". However, the satellites have orbital inclinations of about 21 degrees, far higher than planned inclination of 3 degrees.

With the benefit of an electric thruster orbit-raising package, the SES 14 telecom satellite is expected to be able to reach its planned position in geostationary orbit without major impacts to its mission, a space industry official said.

For its part, the Europe-based Arianespace is not saying too much about what happened with its rocket.

Once operational at 20 degrees West in geostationary orbit, Al Yah-3 will provide commercial Ka-band coverage to 60% of Africa's, and over 95% of Brazil's, populations through Direct-to-Home (DTH) television. "Arianespace has set up an independent investigation commission chaired by ESA's General Inspector".

The operator said the 15-year lifetime of SES-14 had not been compromised.
