I know this is a couple days ago now, but I thought I'd share this on here. On the second orbit of the Soyuz MS-18 launch I was able to listen in on the voice communication from the Russian cosmonauts

I made a rocket like SN8 when I was about ten years old.  I can understand why SpaceX may be having a few problems today.  I had terrible trouble getting the tin foil to stick to the cardboard tube.

Not sure if anyone else interested in this sort of thing, but in about 30 mins there's a live launch here: http://www.ulalaunch.com/webcast.aspx

True that! Replay shows large orange flash followed by large pieces hitting the ground, meaning it likely exploded prior to reaching the ground.

I know this is a couple days ago now, but I thought I'd share this on here. On the second orbit of the Soyuz MS-18 launch I was able to listen in on the voice communication from the Russian cosmonauts on board the Soyuz module approaching the international space station. This is done by tuining in to their communication frequency with my remote antenna setup usually used for receiving weather images. It's all in Russian of course, but I included a translation in the describtion and a video with the audio filtered a little more for a more pleasent listen.

Skip about 3 minutes into the video for the best/most audible comms received.

I hope I get another opportunity to try this again some time. Please let me know if this is of any interest on here:)

Excellent, well done!

I'm intrigued by that rising high pitch frequency you can hear from around 2:40 that goes on until around 4:00 that is displayed as a diverging line on the graph, at a fixed gradient.

Me too! Not sure what it's for actually. It looks like a doppler shift, but it's going the wrong way and it's way too fast😅

Hi folks,

For those interested Blue Origin have another 'New Shepherd' launch (NS-15)  happening this afternoon from West Texas, USA

Launch is scheduled for 16:56 hrs BST (if all goes to plan)

These launches, albeit only test flights are always fascinating to watch, particularly the booster landing.

Live feed streaming now. Link below :
