Orbital elements based on amateur observations

2016 - Launches to Orbit and Beyond

Listed are all launches, irrespective of outcome, that were irretrievably committed to flight towards orbit or intended to accelerate the payload to escape velocity.

Launch times are in UTC and are from the launching agency or estimated by 'walking back' along the ground track to the launch site. The PRIME source of orbit data and decay information is SpaceTrack. A minority of orbits is based on amateur observations using visual and radio techniques. Occasionally, early orbit data are published by satellite owners and may cover periods before SpaceTrack lists a new object. In extreme cases, orbits are estimated from public data.

Apogee and perigee are measured against the Earth's mean equatorial radius - 6378.145 km. Care should be exercised when comparing with other published orbits even when the source is shown as SpaceTrack.

Web sites may link to specific launches by pointing to the page URL followed by the three digit launch number, eg - http://www.zarya.info/Diaries/Launches/Launches.php?year=2016#001

Jason 3
2016-002A
41240
in space
Fourth mission in US-European series of satellite missions to provide continuous measurements of the height of the ocean surface. It extends the studies begun by the TOPEX/Poseidon (1992-052A/22076), Jason 1 (2001-055A/26997) and OSTM/Jason 2 (2008-032A/33105) missions. Precise time: 18:42:18 UTC at the start of a 30s window to ensure orbit was co-planar with TOPEX/Poseidon and Jason 2. Feb 12 - Jason 3 fell into formation with Jason 2. Upper stage of the Falcon 9 was not catalogued because it was de-orbited shortly before the end of its first circuit of the Earth. First stage of Falcon 9 landed on SpaceX drone ship located near 120°.75 west, 32°.125 north but was damaged when one of its four landing legs failed and it fell over.

Aggiesat 4 (LONESTAR Mission 2)
1997-067HP
41313
in space
Small satellite released from ISS. Deployment was delayed 5 min at the last moment to take advantage of better lighting conditions at the ISS. Carried BEVO-2 3U Cubesat expected to separated from Aggiesat 4 2016 late-February but released prematurely shortly after departure from the ISS. The pair were intended to carry out rendezvous and navigation experiments but BEVO-2 failed to activate and Aggiesat 4 reportedly failed shortly after leaving the ISS. Carried to ISS on the Cygnus OA-4 flight (2015-072A), launched 2015 Dec 6.

Reportedly for remote imaging. Precise launch time 00:30:00 UTC. Released from launch vehicle at 00:39:46 UTC. Launch vehicle followed a dog-leg ground track to avoid overflight of China and the Philippines during the ascent. Location of initial Argument Of Perigee suggests launch vehicle may have under-performed. First stage of the launch vehicle reportedly disintegrated into 270 pieces, possibly resulting from a deliberate explosion.

Japanese science satellite equipped with imaging and spectroscopy systems looking at the Hard X-ray, Soft X-ray and Gamma-ray portions of the spectrum. Separated from the launch vehicle at 05:59 UTC. The name means 'pupil of the eye'. 2016 Mar 26, JAXA reported that Hitomi failed to conduct a communication session as expected at 07:40 UTC. JSpOC catalogued debris items in a similar orbit to the satellite that appeared earlier in the day - around 01:24 UTC. They included the two solar arrays and are the result of a breakup when Hitomi developed a significant tumble.

Of special interest are the abundance and distribution of methane, Schiaparelli - an entry, descent and landing demonstrator module, to demonstrate the capability of European industry to perform a controlled landing on the surface of Mars. Schiaparelli is planned to separate from TGO Oct 14 and make a landing Oct 19. Date was the opening of a launch window that closed Mar 25. Precise launch time 09:31:42 UTC. Earth orbit figures are estimates.

Fifth Cygnus resupply mission to ISS. Numbered out of sequence for administrative reasons. Time was the opening of a 30 minute window. Second of two launches switched to Atlas V as a result of the loss of Cygnus Orb 3 2014 Oct when the Antares launch vehicle exploded. Atlas first stage shut down early so Centaur fired for longer in order to achieve orbit, trajectory was slightly modified from that planned as a result. Captured by ISS Remote Manipulator Mar 26 at 10:51:21 UTC and docked with the downward-facing port on Unity at 14:52 UTC. Undocked using the ISS Remote Manipulator at Jun 14 at 11:43 UTC. Released from the manipulator at 13:30 UTC. Successfully released four of five Lemur-2 Cubesats Jun 20, one failed to exit its Nanoracks deployer. Sent to destructive re-entry Jun 22 with atmospheric entry occurring at 13:29 UTC. Centaur stage of the Atlas launch vehicle was not catalogued because it was caused to re-enter the Earth's atmosphere shortly after launch.

Recovered
Recoverable science satellite carrying 19 microgravity and biological experiments. The mission was jointly developed by 11 institutes of the China Academy of Sciences, together with six Chinese universities, the European Space Agency and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency. Following retro-fire and re-entry, the descent module touched down in the Siziwang Banner of Inner Mongolia (the Shenzhou landing zone) Apr 18 at 08:30 UTC.

Supplies to ISS. Cargo included the Bigelow Expandable Activity Module (BEAM) an inflatable inhabitable module carried in Dragon's Trunk Section to be attached the ISS Tranquillity module. Captured by the ISS Remote Manipulator System Apr 10. at 11:23 UTC (about 30 min later than planned due to higher than expected air drag acting on Dragon's orbit). Docked with the ISS Unity module at 13:47 UTC. Undocked May 11 at 11:02 UTC using the ISS RMS and released into independent orbit at about 13:19:40 UTC. Retro-fire for about 600s at 17:57 UTC led to re-entry and splashdown in the Pacific Ocean off California, about 300 km from Los Angeles, at 18:51 UTC near 31°.45 north, 120°.20 east. Upper stage of launch vehicle was de-orbited above the southern Pacific Ocean during its first circuit of he Earth. First stage of launch vehicle landed successfully on a barge at sea off Florida.

Narrowband tactical comsat for geosynchronous orbit, designed to work with highly portable receiver/transmitter equipment. Fourth satellite in a constellation of five, expected location 70º-75º east. Rôle of MUOS 5 is to act as an on-orbit spare to cover for problems with one of the other four satellites. Suffered a malfunction after reaching space and appears to be stranded in intermediate transfer orbit after making a thruster firing to raise perigee. Orbital data based on observations by amateur satellite trackers.

Re-entered 2016 Jun 26
Recovered
Half-scale model of the descent module of a future Chinese piloted spacecraft with attached YZ-1A rocket stage. The YZ-1A re-ignited at least twice and released four satellites into a variety of orbits. Fired its rocket engine again Jun 26 around 07:15 UTC to set it on course for destructive re-entry. The descent module then separated to make its own re-entry and, after opening a parachute, landed in the Badain Jaran Desert of Inner Mongolia at 07:41 UTC. The first & third orbits listed are estimates.

It will allow Boeing CST-100 Starliner and SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft to dock to the station as part of NASA's Commercial Crew Program. The IDA-1 adapter was intended to be attached about one year earlier but was lost in the SpaceX CRS-7 launch failure 2015 June 28. Upper stage rocket not catalogued as it was caused to re-enter shortly after launch. First stage of rocket landed near to launch site fter completion of task.
