Here we provide you with exciting news and background information on upcoming space events and space happenings. Today we report on the docking maneuver of the HTV-X1 on Saturday, December 31, 2022. You can read all the details about the HTV-X1 mission in this article.
Space events are usually processes that do not belong to the usual rocket launches. “Space events” not only report on engine tests or space walks, but also on landings of spacecraft, flybys and other maneuvers that take place outside the earth and are controlled by various space programs.
Mission HTV-X1 overview
NASA TV will broadcast live the rendezvous and landing of the JAXA HTV-X1 freighter at the International Space Station.
|original designation||HTV-X1 Rendezvous and Capture|

What is the goal of the HTV-X1 mission?
First flight of the improved Japanese HTV-X-spaceshipwhich is intended to supply the International Space Station.
Where does the HTV-X1 Mission take place?
The mission takes place in the low earth orbit. This is located at an altitude of 200 to 2,000 kilometers. LEO rides are the lowest energy and easiest to get to. Spacecraft need about 100 minutes to orbit the earth and can move at about 7 km/s. The radio contact to a ground station is a maximum of 15 minutes per round trip. Low Earth orbit is primarily used for manned spaceflight, but also for spy satellites, astronomical satellites, as well as Earth exploration and weather satellites, amateur radio satellites, global communications systems, and research and technology testing satellites.
What does the International Space Station (ISS) do?
The International Space Station (ISS) is a space station or habitable artificial satellite in low Earth orbit. Its first component was launched into orbit in 1998, and the first long-term residents arrived in November 2000. Since then it has been continuously inhabited. The last pressure module was installed in 2011, and an experimental inflatable space habitat was added in 2016. The station is expected to be operational by 2030. The development and assembly of the station continues, and for 2019 the launch of several new elements is planned. The ISS is the largest man-made body in low Earth orbit and can often be seen from Earth with the naked eye. The ISS consists of pressurized habitation modules, structural supports, solar arrays, coolers, docking stations, experimental bays and robotic arms. The ISS components were launched by Russian Proton and Soyuz rockets and American space shuttles.
Space programs and organizations involved in HTV-X1
INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION: The International Space Station program is linked by a complex set of legal, political and financial agreements between the sixteen nations involved in the project, which establish ownership of the various components, rights to crew and use, and responsibilities for regulate the rotation of the crew and the supply of the International Space Station. The project was created in 1984 by President Ronald Reagan as part of the Space Station Freedom project, as it was originally called.
These space organizations are involved:
- Canadian Space Agency
- European Space Agency
- Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency
- National Aeronautics and Space Administration
- Russian Federal Space Agency (ROSCOSMOS)
