Love At First Insight Mission

Love At First Insight is a dedicated mission to lift two 60 kg microsatellites for BlackSky’s global constellation. Seattle-based Spaceflight Inc. is responsible for arranging the launch, as well as for the mission management and integration services for BlackSky.

Where are the satellites going? :

150 X 125 km orbit
at a 50º inclination

Rocket Lab’s Electron is a small-lift launch vehicle designed and developed specifically to place small satellites (CubeSats, nano-, micro-, and minisatellites) into LEO and Sun-synchronous orbits (SSO). Electron consists of two stages with optional third stages.

Electron is about 18 meters (59 feet) in height and only 1.2 meters (3.9 feet) in diameter. It is not only small in size, but also light-weighted. The vehicle structures are made of advanced carbon fiber composites, which yields an enhanced performance of the rocket. Electron’s payload lift capacity to LEO is 300 kg (~660 lbs).

Craft Notes:

  1. Auto-Launch to Orbit by Preprogrammed Vizzy. (Throttle 100%)
  2. Multiple Pad and Rocket Camera setups
  3. Preprogrammed Vizzy for Launch and circulation phases

*Fairing Deploy to be done after 70 km AGL (manuallly)
*FInal orbit insertion (~ 125 x 430 km) and payload deploy to be done manually
