Dnepr Failure Reported



Hi all,

Dnepr Failure Reported

The second Russian Dnepr to fly during the month lifted off from
Baikonur's Area 109 with BelKA, the first Belorussian satellite, and 17
other micro-satellites at 19:43 UTC on July 26, 2006, but payload users
reported that the mission failed sometime after the first stage
separated.  Payloads included the Russian university satellite
"Baumanets", the Italian satellite "UniSat-4", and 14 university
Cubesats.  BelKA, a 250 kg remote sensing spacecraft built upon an RSC
Energia Yamal spacecraft bus, was supposed to be injected into a 511 km
x 97.4 deg sun synchronous earth orbit.  The original Dnepr launcher had
been replaced by a different one in June after a problem had been
detected in the original vehicle's digital flight control system.  A
Dnepr launch failure, if it occurred, would be the first in seven
orbital launch attempts.

If your prediction software coughs up with this, try plugging this into
your
favourite prediction s/w:

In the UK it appears that we miss the first pass.
