An Astra rocket carrying
two small hurricane-tracking satellites for NASA failed to reach orbit
The Astra rocket,
called Launch Vehicle 0010 (LV0010), suffered a second-stage failure
After lifting off from a pad
at the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida
Two NASA cubesats,
the first of a six-satellite fleet to track hurricanes as part of a $30 million mission, were lost.
Astra's LV0010 mission
was carrying the first satellites of NASA's Time-Resolved Observations of Precipitation structure & storm Intensity with a Constellation of Smallsats
It was the first of three
planned TROPICS missions this year by Astra, each carrying two NASA cubesats about the size of a loaf of bread
