Here's a live tracker of the JWST for the next month's critical items. If the secondary mirror doesn't deploy, it's pointless. The primary mirror is just as important but it can sort of work if it doesn't fully deploy. The L2 insertion determines the life of the mission.

Lots of complex math for the L2 calculation. Go look up Lagrange points and dust off your slide rule if you want to see if your brain still works.

This is worth a watch. The launch is the easy part of the deployment of the JWST. The really big event will be the course correction to insert it into a L2 orbit.  That determines how long the JWST mission will last. If done correctly, they'll get 20 years of useful life (projected).

The weather forecast in Kourou, French Guiana calls for rain showers or rain so don't be too surprised if they scrub the launch. Given all the delays, it's not a big deal in the grand scheme of things.

From NASA:

Watch the launch of the James Webb Space Telescope—the most powerful space telescope ever made. This mission is scheduled to lift off at 7:20 a.m. EST (12:20 UTC), Dec. 25, 2021, aboard an Ariane 5 rocket from Europe’s Spaceport in French Guiana.

With revolutionary technology, Webb will observe a part of space and time never seen before, providing a wealth of amazing views into an era when the very first stars and galaxies formed––over 13.5 billion years ago.

It can explore our own solar system’s residents with exquisite new detail and study the atmospheres of distant worlds. From new forming stars to devouring black holes, Webb will reveal all this and more! It’s the world’s largest and most powerful space telescope ever built.

Webb is an international collaboration between NASA, ESA (European Space Agency), and CSA (Canadian Space Agency)

Here's a video about the James Webb Space Telescope which will give you an idea as to what's being launched on Christmas day. It's  just over a half hour long but if you're on my channel, you're a space geek so hopefully you have a sufficiently long attention span.

Dec. 7 Re-Broadcast: Atlas V STP-3

I've lost count how many times this launch has been delayed. It's a rideshare launch for the US Air Force (Space Force?) and NASA carrying STPSat-6 and six secondary payloads. ULA has had so many cock-ups and delays over the last year that NASA recently awarded two more ISS crew launches to SpaceX. They've spread their bets against ULA and SpaceX for ISS launches because they don't want to rely on a single vendor. Good call. If ULA screws up any more, they'll probably go back to using Russia as an alternative for manned launches.

Skip to around 1:50:00 for the final countdown.  Die hards can watch from the beginning to understand what they're launching and also what ULA's been doing all year between aborted missions.

Enjoy!

Voyage Dans La Lune

I was cleaning up my hard drive and stumbled across this one. It's the first sci-fi film, actually, one of the first films ever and is based on a couple of books by Jules Verne. It's no longer under copyright (everyone's dead) so don't complain. Of note, Verne envisioned firing a spacecraft to the moon using a cannon. Look up "Project Babylon" where they were well on the way to launching an object into space using a cannon. Unfortunately, it was funded by Saddam Hussein which Israel didn't like so they assassinated the gun's designer, Gerald Bull, a Canadian. Go figure!

Verne also envisioned the capsule splashing down in the ocean upon return. Prophetic!

Right click to load the original to view full screen or cast to your TV etc. You can do that with most of my posts, BTW.

Enjoy!

Missed Chinese launches.

For those of you who follow launches, China is firing off rockets left, right and center. This one, the Ceres-1 (photo from a previous launch) goes November 24 at 23:40 GMT. It's carrying a nano-satellite made by Space Ark. On November 26, they're launching ChinaSat 6D of unknown capability. Yesterday, they launched Gaofen-3 02 on a Long March 4C. They launched Gaofen-11-03 on a Long March 4B on November 19. Lots of activity; no videos.

The only ones they seem to broadcast these days are related to their space station and the Taikonauts who go there. Lots of space junk as they don't care where the boosters go...

Falcon 9 Block 5 | Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) launch *** Live *** November 24 0621 GMT (1:21 am EST).

These guys have been watching too many movies. This is the launch of a satellite designed to collide with an asteroid in an attempt to knock it off course. I saw a news report comparing it to the movie "Armageddon" where Bruce Willis and company blow up an asteroid on a collision course with Earth and save the world.

They didn't compare it to the movie "Deep Impact" where they were only partially successful at blowing up the doomsday asteroid and part of it wiped out the Eastern US. People on this site would say that ii blew away Democrats, so who cares?

Personally, I like the asteroid deflector in the episode from Star Trek (The Paradise Syndrome) where Kirk loses his memory and yet still manages to bang the hottest native in the village. Miramanee!!!!

Enjoy!

For anyone following developments on the James Webb Space Telescope (Hubble's replacement), they had an "incident" today (11/22/2021) while processing it in preparation for a (no earlier than) December 18 launch. The revised date is now no earlier than December 22 as they have to check all 300+ single point of failure items. An "incident" in space terms means that they either dropped it or banged it. Another new space term coined this year by Space X was "RUD" or "Rapid Unscheduled Disassembly". In laymans terms, it blew up. Firefly uses PEUFEG (Pointy End Up Flamey End Down) to confirm rocket orientation on the launch pad, which is always a good thing. Rocket Labs/Firefly call the rocket entering "zebra mode" as the liquid oxygen tanks fill, causing ice to form around the LOX tank sections of the otherwise black carbon fiber rocket.
