Interplanetary maneuvers of the last days

Recently, the main source of news from deep space has been the asteroid Ryugu, on which a couple of micro-rovers and the MASCOT module have recently been planted. But still, this is not the only interplanetary spacecraft. Over the past couple of days, there have been a few news from other missions, about which we should briefly tell.

Let's start with another asteroid mission OSIRIS-REx, which is heading towards the small planet Bennu. On October 1, the station carried out an important maneuver, during which it reduced its speed relative to the asteroid from 491 m / s to 140 m / s. Over the next six weeks, OSIRIS-REx will gradually approach Benn and will simultaneously carry out a series of three more course corrections. The last one is scheduled for November 12th. After it, OSIRIS-REx will reach a position at a distance of 20 km from the asteroid.

The beginning of October was intense and at the Parker solar probe. October 3, he passed at a distance of 2400 km from Venus. Thus, Parker carried out the first of seven planned gravitational maneuvers, which should translate it closer to the Sun. Let me remind you that the probe was launched on August 12.Thus, he covered the distance to Venus in less than two months.

Ahead of Parker - the first perihelion. On November 6, the probe will pass at a distance of 25 million km from the Sun and immediately set a new record as an apparatus that came as close as possible to our star. If everything goes well, then by 2025 Parker will bring this figure to 6 million km.

And finally, on October 4, it was confirmed that the New Horizons had successfully completed the planned course correction. It was required for more accurate targeting of the station to the Kuiper Belt 2014 MU69 object (Ultima Thule). The station will carry out its passage on January 1, 2019. We have to wait less than three months.
