On February 27, 2019 at 21:37 UTC the Russian "Soyuz-ST-B” rocket-carrier was launched from Kourou launch site in French Guiana. The rocket equipped with the "Fregat-M” booster orbited first 6 OneWeb satellites. There are 20 more Soyuz launches planned for OneWeb from French Guiana, Russia and Kazakhstan, each carrying 32 to 36 satellites to build out the company’s network providing worldwide broadband Internet coverage. OneWeb plans to deploy 648 satellites in its initial constellation over the next two years. The OneWeb is a global communications company that was founded in 2012 under the name WorldVu, based in Britain’s Channel Islands. Now the company is based in Arlington, Virginia, USA.
On February 25, 2019 the US "Cygnus” (CRS NG-10 “S.S. John Young”) unmanned supply spacecraft was deorbited. Non-burnt fragments of the spacecraft drowned in the remote area of the Pacific at 09:05 UTC.
On February 22, 2019 at 22:29 UTC, the Japanese “Hayabusa-2” probe contacted the surface of Ryugu asteroid. The spacecraft briefly landed on the asteroid more than 350 million kilometers from Earth to take a rocky sample. The probe spent on Ryugu surface for just a few moments before firing thrusters to climb away from the asteroid. It was a touch-and-go landing. The “Hayabusa-2” is to return back to Earth in December 2020.
On February 21, 2019 at 16:47 UTC the "Soyuz-2” rocket-carrier was launched from Baykonur Cosmodrome. The rocket equipped with the "Fregat” upper-stage orbited the “Egyptsat-A” observation satellite. It is a remote sensing satellite built by Russian RSC “Energia” aerospace manufacturer to provide the Egyptian military and other government agencies with high-resolution surveillance imagery.
On February 21, 2019 at 01:45 UTC the "Falcon-9” rocket-carrier was launched Cape Canaveral launch site of US Air Force. The launch was performed by the "SpaceX” private company supported by the 45th Space Wing of US Air Force. The rocket orbited Indonesia’s “Nusantara Satu” communications satellite; the “Beresheet” lunar lander for SpaceIL (an Israeli organization); the S5 experimental small satellite for the Air Force Research Laboratory.
On February 13, 2019 the US "Cygnus” (CRS NG-10 “S.S. John Young”) unmanned supply spacecraft deployed 3 nanosatellites: MySat-1 of UAE; CHEFSAT (Cost-effective High E-Frequency Satellite) and Kicksat-2 of USA.
On February 8, 2019 the US "Cygnus” (CRS NG-10 “S.S. John Young”) unmanned supply spacecraft was undocked from the Harmony module of the International Space Station. After that, the spacecraft, was released by US astronaut Anne McClain aboard the station using the “Canadarm-2” orbiting complex's huge robotic arm at 16:16 UTC. It was the 10th successful flight of "Cygnus” to the ISS.
On February 5, 2019 at 21:01 UTC the “Ariane-5” rocket-carrier was launched from Kourou Cosmodrome in French Guiana. The rocket orbited the Saudi Geostationary Satellite 1/Hellas Sat 4 (HS- 4/SGS-1) and the Indian “GSAT-31” communication satellites.
On January 25, 2019 at 12:55 UTC the “Progress MS-09” unmanned supply spacecraft was undocked from the International Space Station. At the same day, the spacecraft was deorbited. Non-burnt fragments of the spacecraft drowned in the remote area of the Pacific at 16:50 UTC.
