New rocket rideshare programs from Arianespace and SpaceX

November 11, 2019

Have you heard about the SpaceX rocket rideshare or the first rocket of Arianespace going to the Moon in 2023? Learn more about them below.

Rocket reaches space relatively quickly and cheaply

The rocket rideshare markets have two big names: Arianespace and SpaceX. Let’s see what program they are having for the upcoming years.

Arianespace with the first rocket rideshare mission to the Moon in 2023

Arianespace CEO announced their exciting news at the International Astronautical Congress. According to him, the Ariane 6, the company’s forthcoming space launch vehicle will have the first rideshare mission to the Moon in four years. This rocket launch to the Moon will be able to deliver about 8.5 tons of cargo to direct lunar transfer orbit. The Ariane 6 is a two-stage medium-heavy lift launch system. It has been developed by Arianespace, under the direction of the European Space Agency. It is going to have the first test flights next year, and targets for its first lunar orbit mission with paying customer cargo on board in 2023. If Ariane 6 can make it happen, it is going to be an important transport mechanism for any long-term attempts. Not only can we get crew to the Moon, but we can also establish a working infrastructure and stay there. As a result, humans can spend long spans of time living, working and researching on the Moon.

SpaceX with regular rideshare missions to space for small satellites

SpaceX just announced that it would begin Falcon 9 launches from either late 2020 or early 2021 from the Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. Afterwards, it would launch multiple small spacecraft into sun-synchronous orbit (SSO)  until at least 2023. If customers sign up for more than 12 months before the launch, they will need to pay $2.25 million for 150 kilograms. However, if they sign up for about six months before the launch, they’ll have to pay $3 million for 150 kilograms. Additionally, if a satellite ran into problems with development or production challenges, SpaceX would allow customers to book onto another mission, however, they might apply the rebooking fees. 

If they are successful, companies and organizations can hope that they will be able to reach space relatively quickly and cheaply.
