The ADRAS-J mission, which was launched into space to locate a piece of malfunctioning satellite 11 meters long and weighing 3 tons, will set new standards in the field of arrival and active removal of space debris, as well as in the provision of service to malfunctioning satellites in orbit around the Earth.
This was announced this week, 31.1.24/XNUMX/XNUMX, at the Rona Ramon space education conference held as part of Israeli Space Week
However, the mission's lifetime will probably be much shorter than planned due to problems with the solar power generation

Astroscale's solution will help overcome the limitations that result from the fact that satellites are currently launched into space with a limited supply of fuel. "Our APS-R satellite opens the door to rethinking the way satellites are designed and operated, and it marks a significant leap forward in the capabilities and sustainability of satellites in orbit"
Entavi, currently head of the systems engineering program at Afka College, Entavi emphasizes the importance of systemic planning in complex projects. He also told about the meeting that made Berashit the prototype of the moon landings in NASA's tenders
The spacecraft failed to reach lunar orbit due to a fuel leak that was discovered immediately upon its ejection from the upper stage of the launcher. Now NASA is helping Astrobotics investigate the malfunction
Yesterday, after it separated from the upper stage of the Vulcan launcher, it became clear that there is a fuel leak from the spacecraft's engines that change its balance and do not allow it to generate electricity from solar energy. The Astrobotics company says that they will try to turn it into a lunar compass, even if only for a short time * On board the spaceship were five dedicated NASA instruments
The Peregrine lander is carrying a variety of scientific instruments to study the radiation and soil composition on the moon, along with an unusual payload that includes a small rover, a bitcoin coin, and the ashes and DNA of several celebrities - including Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry
The space agency says that the industry alone will not be able to move forward and it is required to cooperate with the government and academia. This can help solve bottlenecks that slow down progress in the field
During the launch, all 33 Raptor engines were successfully ignited, and the spaceship disconnected from the Super Aby launcher as planned, but then the launcher exploded, and SpaceX decided to blow up the spaceship itself as well
With the development of civilization comes roads, and this will be especially true on the moon. To do this, the dust must be kept away. In the Apollo era, dust blocked equipment and worn space suits.
As the day dawned last Friday, ISRO started trying to communicate with the lander. There has been no answer so far, and it is possible that the lander and the vehicle will be buried up to about 600 km from the south pole of the moon
As the number of spacecraft flying to the moon increases, people here on Earth will have to think about what happens to all the landings and debris left on the lunar surface and in orbit. The problem: private companies are excluded from the UN Space Treaty
The fact that so many nations - the United States, Russia, China, India, Israel - and even commercial entities are interested in landing on the moon means that there are many opportunities to create new partnerships
The spacecraft made history as the first to land on the south pole of the moon. India became only the fourth country to make a soft landing on the moon
The four astronauts aboard Orion will use a target attached to the space propulsion stage to demonstrate approach operations to test Orion's navigation capabilities. The target underwent illumination tests in May to ensure that it could be seen in different lighting conditions in space
One of the space tourists is Kisha Shaf, who is married to an Israeli and wears the Israeli flag. In addition, her 18-year-old daughter Anastasia Myers flew - the first combination of mother and daughter on a space flight. During the flight, the Unity spacecraft reached an altitude of 88 km and the passengers felt a few minutes of low gravity
The teachers who explained to him as a child the first Hillel flights led Stephen Alexander to fall in love with space, when the space agency was created when he was 3 years old and the first flight to the moon when he was 14 years old
A few weeks ago, the astronaut Sultan Al Nyadi participated in a sleep laboratory experiment on the space station
The 100-ton thrust Prometheus makes extensive use of new materials and new manufacturing techniques to reduce its cost to just one-tenth that of Ariane 2's Vulcan 5
It will be equipped with a docking device that will allow connecting and 'towing' satellites and launchers and taking them off course
At the Spacestack conference that will be held on May 22 at the Tel Aviv Expo, an initiative to establish an Israeli LIGO association (consortium) in regional cooperation will be announced
The moon still has much to tell us about the origin and development of the solar system. It also has scientific value as a platform for observational astronomy
