Space Launch Now
This is my main side project, a spaceflight tracker for Android and iOS using data from The Space Devs - Launch Library API. It was first launched in 2016 as the first quality spaceflight even tracking mobile app at a time where renewed public focus was being brought in thanks to the efforts of SpaceX. The project is very mature now with a robust CI/CD pipeline, backend services for GCM, Twitter/Instagram bots and other various services all running on a Digital Ocean hosted kubernetes cluster.

Launch Library 2
The next space launch, retrieved from The Space Devs
Launch Library 2 API, is
Black Brant IX | SISTINE. It is scheduled to be launched by Equatorial Launch Australia
from Suborbital Launch Ramp, Arnhem Space Centre
at 2022-07-05 10:54:00 UTC. Until
then, this pad will have been used for 1
out of 1 launches from this location. The launch status is currently
The Suborbital Imaging Spectrograph for Transition region Irradiance from Nearby Exoplanet host stars (SISTINE) is a payload from the University of Colorado. Its objective is to study how light from stars affects the atmospheres of the planets around them, including the gases thought to be signs of life. For this flight, it will measure the ultraviolet light output from α Centauri A and B, two stars of the three-star α Centauri system that are the closest stars to our Sun.
