Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer or LADEE is a robotic Moon mission spacecraft from NASA. The mission of NASAs LADEE spacecraft is to collect close informations about Moon’s atmosphere. LADEE spacecraft will launch on 6th September, 11 p.m ET. LADEE will launch from mid-Atlantic regional spaceport at wallops.
You can watch the live streaming of LADEE spacecraft launching on NASA TV, live commentary will start at 9.30 pm E.T. NASA calculated around 160 days for this moon mission. The first 30 days for the travelling of LADEE spacecraft from Earth to Moon, the next 30 for the check out and and remaining 100 days for the operation. Minautar 5 is the rocket that used by NASA Scientists for the launching of LADEE spacecraft.
Mission of NASAs LADEE spacecraft
The mission of LADEE spacecraft divided into several space phases, Launch, Ascent, Activation and checkout, Phasing orbits, Lunar orbit insertion, commissioning, science and decommissioning. After launching the LADEE spacecraft will goes through series of space orbits, It will balance the spacecraft to reach at the Moon atmosphere at correct time.
The reach of LADEE spacecraft within each of those space orbits will control via Minotaur V rocket injection. The focusing mission of NASAs LADEE spacecraft is to understand the surface of Moon and it’s particles. NASA plans to make a deep research on the particles that influence Moon environment. It also helpful to understand about planetary elements. NASA’s future Moon mission also links to LADEE spacecraft’s findings.
NASA uses LASER communication elements for receiving datas from LADEE spacecraft. It is six times faster than current radio system that used within orbiters. LADEE Moon mission looking up for exploring the other planetary elements. LADEE Mission costs about $280 million. NASA already covering series of finding from red planet using their curiosity rover. NASA scientists believed they have to covers the insight of natural satellite of mother Earth so deeply. China is also set to launch it’s first Moon mission spacecraft at the end of this year.
