Sun sensor spacecraft Sun sensor satellite is to be placed on a spaceport in Florida to begin its mission, and is expected to make a splashdown at the Florida Space Port in 2024.
The U.S. Space and Missile Systems Command (SMC) announced the decision to place the first of its nine satellites, the $1.6 billion SunSensor2, in Florida on Monday.
It was not immediately clear when the spacecraft would be put into orbit or when the first spacecraft would launch, which could happen as early as this summer.
“This spacecraft is our goal is not to have as many satellites on the launch pad as possible, so it’s an opportunity to have our life as long-lasting as possible,” said Michael Gold, director of commercial services at the Space Launch System program office, the company that owns the satellites.
“I’m very excited about it.
It’s been a real challenge.”
The SunSensor spacecraft is the most ambitious space project in NASA’s history.
It is the first time the agency has put a payload on the pad, as the Orion crew capsule has been built to be capable of launching its payload on a shuttle launch vehicle.
The Sun Sensor2 is a four-wheeled, solar-powered spacecraft designed to provide a data collection capability on the sun that can measure and record sunspots, the magnetic field of the sun, the temperature and humidity levels on the surface of the Sun, and the position of other celestial bodies.
It is expected that the spacecraft will carry instruments and scientific instruments for monitoring the Earth and the sun’s magnetosphere, and will be the first space station to be built in Florida.
It’s a rare move for the agency to build a spacecraft on the ground for its space station program.
NASA used to build spacecraft for the space station as far back as the 1960s.
However, the agency changed its mission in 2003 to focus on a human spaceflight program.
The agency has used a combination of NASA, Boeing and other companies to build and launch a number of spacecraft for space exploration.
A large portion of the spacecraft that will be launched into orbit for the station is a joint development between Boeing and the Lockheed Martin Corporation, the largest U.K.-based aerospace company.
The satellites are part of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program, which includes the Orion spacecraft, Space Launch Complex-40, the Space Exploration Technologies Corp. (SpaceX) Dragon spacecraft, the United Launch Alliance Delta IV Heavy rocket and the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket.
