Astra Makes Its First Launch but Fails to Reach Orbit

New satellite delivery and launch company Astra attempted its first orbital launch late on Friday night with mixed results. The rocket, code-named Rocket 3.1, launched successfully but failed to reach orbit due to a problem during the first stage burn.

“Successful lift off and fly out, but the flight ended during the first stage burn,” the company confirmed on Twitter. “It does look like we got a good amount of nominal flight time. More updates to come!”

There was no live video of the launch and only some details are available, but in a briefing Astra announced that the rocket, which was not carrying any payload, fell back to Earth and landed in a safe area.

Astra was positive about the progress, however, writing in a blog post, “Tonight, we saw a beautiful launch!” and “Preliminary data review indicates the rocket performed very well.” The company founders, Chris Kemp

LIVERPOOL (AP) — Mohamed Salah anotó un penal a los 88 minutos para completar su tripleta y darle el sábado a Liverpool una emocionante victoria de 4-3 sobre el ascendido Leeds de Marcelo Bielsa en un difícil arranque de su defensa del títuo de la Premier inglesa.

El artillero egipcio había abierto la cuenta a los cuatro minutos, también de penal, luego de una mano , lo que aseguró que anotaba en el primer partido de la Premier por cuarta temporada seguida.
