Assembling a Rocket

“How Do You Assemble the Largest Rocket Ever Made?” Very carefully.

It’s going to be a busy week with a few live coverage events starting with the launch of Expedition 58 to the International Space Station followed by the arrival of OSIRIS-REx at the asteroid Bennu. Plus a SpaceX launch – see note below.

Then we have a Space X launch of a cargo-spaceship to the International Space Station (a busy place) and the launch of a couple of communications satellites aboard an Ariane V rocket. I believe one of the satellites is a replacement of an Indian satellite for one that failed to reach orbit last April.

So lots of live feeds with replays added later in the day.

Note: Space X is also launching the Spaceflight SSO-A: SmallSat Express mission to low Earth orbit tomorrow, so that clears up some scheduling. That launch is from Vandenberg AFB in California.
