LANCEMENT ARIANESPACE SOYUZ ST-B / VS10-O3b    :     photos Arianespace

La Revue d’Aptitude au Lancement (RAL) s’est déroulée le 17 décembre 2014 au Centre Spatial Guyanais et a autorisé les opérations de chronologie pour le Vol Soyuz ST-B – O3b.

Pour son dixième lancement Soyuz depuis le Centre Spatial Guyanais, Arianespace mettra en orbite les quatre satellites suivants de la constellation O3b. Les satellites O3b ont été réalisés sous la maitrise d’œuvre de Thales Alenia Space.

Avec Soyuz, Ariane 5 et Vega au Centre Spatial Guyanais, Arianespace est le seul opérateur au monde à lancer toutes les charges vers toutes les orbites, des plus petits aux plus grands satellites géostationnaires, des grappes de satellites pour les constellations à la déserte de la Station spatiale internationale (ISS).

Le lancement sera effectué depuis l'Ensemble de Lancement Soyuz (ELS) en Guyane française, à un instant précis:

15:37:00 (Heure de Guyane) le jeudi 18 décembre 2014

13:37:00 (Heure de Washington, DC)

18:37:00 (UTC)

19:37:00 (Heure de Paris)

21:37:00 (Heure de Moscou)

THE LAUNCH READINESS REVIEW (RAL) took place in Kourou on Wednesday December 17, 2014 and authorized count-down operations for the Soyuz ST-B – O3b launch.
On the tenth Soyuz launch from the Guiana Space Center, Arianespace will orbit the next four satellites in the O3b constellation. These satellites are built by Thales Alenia Space as prime contractor.

With the Soyuz, Ariane 5 and Vega launchers at the Guiana Space Center (CSG), Arianespace is the only launch services provider in the world capable of launching all types of payloads into all orbits, from the smallest to the largest geostationary satellites, from satellite clusters for constellations to cargo missions for the International Space Station (ISS).

The launch will be from the Soyuz Launch Site (ELS) at the Guiana Space Center, French Guiana. Liftoff is scheduled for Thursday, December 18, 2014 at exactly:

03:37:00 pm local time in French Guiana

03:37:00 pm in Washington, D.C.

06:37:00 pm UTC

07:37:00 pm in Paris

09:37:00 pm in Moscow.

Webcast starts 15 minutes before. You can also watch the video transmission live on your iPad, iPhone or Android 4+ devices, the Arianespace HD App is available for free.

Monday 15 December 2014 at 15.18 UTC, which is 16.18 CEWT, students from Istituto Tecnico Statale  Economico e Tecnologico Elena di Savoia ¬ Piero Calamandrei, Bari, Italy AND State Technical Institute of Technology Alessandro Volta, Bitonto (BARI) established ARISS contact with ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti IZ0UDF on board the International Space Station. The astronaut operated with the ISS callsign IR0ISS. This was a direct contact performed by Amateur radio ground station IZ7EVR, located at Elena di Savoia school in Bari, Italy.

Presentation Istituto Tecnico Statale  Economico e Tecnologico Elena di Savoia ¬ Piero Calamandrei:

The School I.I.S.S. Elena di Savoia ¬ Piero Calamandrei  is a technological (chemistry and environmental biotechnology, chemical and healthcare biotechnology) and economic (financial administration and marketing) school. It serves the educational needs of the town and the metropolitan area of Bari in southern Italy. It caters for boys and girls, aged fourteen-eighteen. Located in one of the regional tourist areas, it is in the suburbs of the pleasant town of Bari, in the south-east of the APULIA region, south-east of Italy. The curriculum focuses on health, environment, science activities in lab., chemistry and biochemistry, microbiology. The sanitary and environmental section of the school has an auditorium,  three computer rooms, two chemical laboratories, two biological laboratories, a physics laboratory, a new biology laboratory, five multimedia boards, twenty five classrooms. At present there are five hundred students on roll and they attend classes daily, from 8.15 am to 1.00 pm.

The school, located in multi-district Japigia south of the city of Bari, covers several three floor buildings. One of these structures comprises an auditorium, a gym,  25 classrooms and 8 laboratories. The technology sector includes the study of chemistry and environmental biotechnology, chemical and healthcare biotechnology. The economics division covers international relations and marketing. The school  has a total of 800 students.

Presentation State Technical Institute of Technology Alessandro Volta:

The  Alessandro Volta school teaches communications, social-history, mathematics, science and technology in different contexts: life, study, job. In addition it fosters useful competence, allowing students to access  continuous innovations through 3 specializations: Mechanics and Mechatronics, IT and Telecommunications, Electronics and Electro-technics.

ARISS mentor Francesco De Paolis, IK0WGF proposed to Radio Contact Coordinator Mr. Michele Mallardi IZ7EVR to set up a direct contact, with the support by IK1SLD back-up ground station, and this was accepted. The event took place in Elena di Savoia school, where an audience of more than 200 students, visitors (including some Italian Air Force officers) and Media (2 TV, 2 newspapers) participated at contact site, and about 200 at both schools. Total of more than 400 people.

Before the contact, Mrs. Rosa Tagliamonte by ASI (Italian Space Agency) presented the Cristoforetti mission and the Italian contribution to the International Space Station. Mr. Michele Mallardi IZ7EVR presented ARISS and explained how a contact with the ISS is performed via Ham Radio.

At 15:18 UTC contact with IR0ISS was established by the IZ7EVR ground station. Radio operator Michele Mallardi exchanged welcome greetings and presented the schools to ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti IZ0UDF. Using the Ericsson radio in the Columbus Module, the astronaut answered all 20 questions from the students, exchanged final greetings and wishes  for Christmas and closed the contact. The space  conversation was conducted in Italian. During the whole pass (about 9’ 30”) the signal from the ISS was loud and clear, as confirmed by many listeners in Europe.

Live Streaming video was available on:

ARISS contact was announced by web story on ESA Portal - National News:

Congratulations to the schools, ARISS Puglia Team and IK1SLD back-up station, operated by Claudio Ariotti, IK1SLD.

Abstract from ESA Astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti's logbook

Abstract from ESA Astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti's logbook

Yesterday, December 15, I had my first HAM radio contact with school pupils. A big hello to the students of the schools "Elena di Savoia" in Bari and "Alessandro Volta" in Bitonto!  It was fun talking to you and thanks for the great questions!

Amateur radio contacts between astronauts and school kids have a long tradition on ISS, thanks to a little army of volunteers in many countries who work with the local schools not only on the day of contact, but also in the weeks and months leading up to the event: they teach students about radio technology and about space, to get them ready and hopefully excited about the event.

From my side, I only needed to be ready on the proper channel at the proper time: it is very important, because we need direct line-of-sight with the amateur radio station on the ground and the pass is only about ten minutes long. A couple of minutes before the expected acquisition-of-signal time, I started making calls to check if someone was already picking me up. Eventually I picked up a call from the ground station and sure enough, we started our conversation. I heard them loud and clear, which positively surprised me: somehow I expected signal quality not to be as good. I hope they had the same quality on the other side.

On such contacts, there’s no time for small talk and formalities: in less than ten minutes, we had to make sure that the 20 students who were lined up to ask their question got their chance. So here I was, ready to go. And here came the first question – are you ready? Here’s it is:
“ It is known that people become taller when they are in space. What happens to bio-molecules? Is there any alteration in the tertiary structure of proteins?”

I almost fell off my chair… well, if I had had a chair. (Wonder what a good equivalent of this expression would be in weightlessness… any suggestions?)

Where are the good old question about space food and the space toilet? Jokes apart, I was really impressed with all the questions: they showed a great interest and knowledge in science and technology and gave me great hope for our future generations of scientists and engineers. Keep up the great work, girls and boys.
