An @northropgrumman launch of the #MinotaurIV is coming up next week for the @NatReconOfc. @josephanavin and I break down launch preps, where the teams are, and what's left to do before launch on Tuesday, 14 July at 09:00 EDT (13:00 UTC). ARTICLE: https://t.co/UhABASbFpn

Technicians at @NASAStennis have completed third test of the SLS core stage Green Run test series. Each test is designed to gradually bring the core stage -- the same hardware that will be used for #Artemis I -- to life for the first time. MORE >> https://t.co/tXSw9NOShw https://t.co/Q8qkZT4dTT

Always liked the idea of a Gateway since first writing about Boeing's proposal back in 2011 (refined since, but this was back when SLS was white and set to launch in 2017). Fuel Depots were also proposed (whatever happened to those? 😬) https://t.co/HrZ9gtEURY https://t.co/fot0gZ4SBN

China is ramping up its launch cadence again, with another launch, this time with a Long March 3B lofting APStar-6D out of Xichang. Article by Rui. C Barbosa: (File photo until the Chinese State media release some pics from this launch). https://t.co/cax4iOyTO5

Dog! Robotic dog!! Zeus has been seen in its native habitat near #Starship in Boca Chica! Video + Photos by Mary (@BocaChicaGal) for @NASASpaceflight. Edited by @thejackbeyer. WATCH: https://t.co/PLp6mkRu3Y

Check out the 2nd @NASA_SLS core stage that will launch the crewed #Artemis II mission around the moon. It’s making progress at #NASAMichoud. https://t.co/7HYjXK9CYZ

Good to see progress on the second @NASA_SLS Core Stage coming along at Michoud in Louisiana. #Progress https://t.co/dqxJFaD0ra

Today at SpaceX Boca Chica, Zeus the Robodog was spotted giving its doghouse a try, High Bay construction progressed at lightning pace, and work on SN5 continued ahead of static fire testing. Video + Photos by Mary (@BocaChicaGal) for @NASASpaceflight.

Nine years ago today, I was honored to be a member of the crew of STS-135 #Atlantis as we launched from @NASAKennedy to close out the Space Shuttle Era of human spaceflight. https://t.co/FwooIi2qQp

Flag launched with Doug on STS-135. Captured by Doug during Demo-2. Now to bring it home. https://t.co/kR3t9MZWKg

It appears that the next launch attempt for the latest Starlink mission will have to wait until at least Saturday. Marine hazard zones for Friday have been cancelled. Still waiting for SpaceX to officially confirm a date. https://t.co/vmcG3wThon

Bob and Doug said riding on Falcon 9 in Dragon Endeavour was more dynamic than Shuttle. My face when I heard that: "😲🤔" Shuttle was *very* dynamic during first stage! https://t.co/ON0VnmNQdF https://t.co/zetvIKHIEZ

OTD in 2011: The last shuttle takes to the skies.

Standing down from today’s mission due to weather; proceeding through the countdown until T-1 minute for data collection. Will announce a new target launch date once confirmed on the Range

And there's the weather scrub. https://t.co/9w90nqpJKu

T-17mins. RP-1 kerosene load into Stage 2 is wrapping up. LOX (liquid oxygen) load to Stage 2 will start at T-16 mins. RP-1 and LOX continue to flow into Stage 1. #SpaceX #Starlink #Blacksky #Falcon9
