[13]:III–12 out of the payload bay or retrieved and secured for return to Earth. This area houses the pressurized crew module [13]:III–13, The approach and landing phase began when the orbiter vehicle was at an altitude of 3,000 m (10,000 ft) and traveling at 150 m/s (300 kn). In this image, a space-suited astronaut prepares a satellite for its release from the Shuttle's cargo bay. [17]:427 The GPCs could dynamically control the throttle of the RS-25 engines based upon the performance of the SRBs. crew module has a forward flight deck with the commander's seat Minibuses, or shuttle buses, are vehicles with passenger capacities below the larger full-size bus and more than the smaller minivan. That August, NASA awarded the contract to build the orbiter to North American Rockwell, the solid-rocket booster contract to Morton Thiokol, and the external tank contract to Martin Marietta. In 20 years, the vessel could shuttle satellites and humans to space. [34] Between T−6.6 seconds and T−3 seconds, while the RS-25 engines were firing but the SRBs were still bolted to the pad, the offset thrust caused the Space Shuttle to pitch down 650 mm (25.5 in) measured at the tip of the external tank; the 3-second delay allowed the stack to return to nearly vertical before SRB ignition. space shuttle in favor of a new Crew Exploration Vehicle, or CEV. Once the orbiter was secured, it was towed to the OPF to be inspected, repaired, and prepared for the next mission. The Spacelab module contained two 2.7 m (9 ft) segments that were mounted in the aft end of the payload bay to maintain the center of gravity during flight. Payload to orbit: 28,803 kilograms Orbital Altitude: 185 to 643 kilometers apogee; Shuttle Mission Phases and Timelines. Despite the problems during testing, NASA ordered the nine RS-25 engines needed for its three orbiters under construction in May 1978. During the development program, Rocketdyne determined that the engine was capable of safe reliable operation at 104% of the originally specified thrust. As you walk under and around the 137-foot-long (41.8 meter) orbiter, you will notice that the landing wheels are in the down position and that each main wheel tire is just under 4 feet (1.2 meters) in diameter. The landing locations were chosen based upon political relationships, favorable weather, a runway at least 2,300 m (7,500 ft) long, and TACAN or DME equipment. From that position the Space Shuttle waits for clearance from Mission Control to continue. portion of the bulkhead attaches to the vertical tail. [6]:165–170, NASA reviewed 29 potential designs for the Space Shuttle, and determined that a design with two side boosters should be used, and the boosters should be reusable to reduce costs. [13]:III–140 Beginning with STS-74, the orbiter vehicle conducted dockings with the Mir space station. [17]:363, Responsibility for the Shuttle components was spread among multiple NASA field centers. [13]:III–13, In addition to the pre-planned landing airfields, there were 85 agreed-upon emergency landing sites to be used in different abort scenarios, with 58 located in other countries. The time of astronaut the blink is 110 millisecond and a football field is 91.4 meters. Its casing consisted of 11 steel sections which made up its four main segments. From 1991 to 1993, the orbiter vehicles were upgraded to the AP-101S, which improved the memory and processing capabilities, and reduced the volume and weight of the computers by combining the CPU and IOP into a single unit. The LWT's weight was reduced by removing components from the LH2 tank and reducing the thickness of some skin panels. The orbiter vehicle's aft RCS jets were disabled as it descended and its ailerons, elevators, and rudder became effective in the lower atmosphere. The Space Shuttle was retired from service upon the conclusion of Atlantis's final flight on July 21, 2011. The craft is 11 meters in length, 8 meters in width, and about 15,400 kg. The internal NASA's only full-length shuttle trainer, construction of the FFT began in 1974 at Johnson Space Center in Houston. Space Shuttle orbiter length: 3,724 centimeters. The ET was 47 m (153.8 ft) tall and 8.4 m (27.6 ft) in diameter, and contained separate tanks for liquid oxygen (LOX) and liquid hydrogen (LH2). The ground launch processing system handed off the control to the orbiter vehicle's GPCs at T−31 seconds. Additionally, the Air Force required a larger payload capacity than Faget's design allowed. It has 305 meters (1000ft) of pavedoverruns at each end and the paving thickness is 40.6cm (15ninches) at thecenter. [45][46] Following the loss of two Space Shuttle missions, the risks for the initial missions were reevaluated, and the chance of a catastrophic loss of the vehicle and crew was found to be as high as 1 in 9. It consists of the flight deck, the middeck/equipment The aft section of the flight decked contained windows looking into the payload bay, as well as an RHC to control the Remote Manipulator System during cargo operations. Each SRB measures 45.5 meters in length and 3.6 meters in diameter. ... now spans the building's two floors and Atlantis' wall-length digital screen backdrop has been loaded with a high-definition movie that will help give the shuttle the appearance of being back in space. Minibuses | Shuttle Buses have average lengths of 23’ (7.01 m), widths of 7’4” (2.24 m), heights of 8’9” (2.67 m), and have a capacity of 14 (+2) seats. Shuttle Court Length. the payload bay doors, hinges and tiedown fittings, the forward flight deck. The shuttle court playing area is 20 feet wide for doubles play. [13]:III-355 STS-135 launched on July 8, 2011, and landed at the KSC on July 21, 2011, at 5:57 a.m. EDT (09:57 UTC). [14]:277–278 NASA coordinated with the Air Force to use satellites to image the underside of Columbia, and determined there was no damage. At the time of separation, gaseous oxygen was vented from the nose to cause the ET to tumble, ensuring that it would break up upon reentry. The ET continued on a ballistic trajectory and broke up during reentry, with some small pieces landing in the Indian or Pacific Ocean. Throughout the flight, they were used for orbit changes, as well as the deorbit burn prior to reentry. At 8 minutes 44 seconds prior to landing, the crew deployed the air data probes, and began lowering the angle-of-attack to 36°. RS-25 upgrade versions were denoted as Block I and Block II. or EVA. Payloads were secured in the payload bay to the attachment points on the longerons. Max Faget, a NASA engineer who had worked to design the Mercury capsule, patented a design for a two-stage fully recoverable system with a straight-winged orbiter mounted on a larger straight-winged booster. [8]:72–73 During reentry, the TPS experienced temperatures up to 1,600 °C (3,000 °F), but had to keep the orbiter vehicle's aluminum skin temperature below 180 °C (350 °F). [13]:II–186, The launch commit criteria considered precipitation, temperatures, cloud cover, lightning forecast, wind, and humidity. The mission cycle of the Shuttle is quite complex. The exterior of the ET was covered in orange spray-on foam to allow it to survive the heat of ascent. During the design of the Space Shuttle, the Phase B proposals were not as cheap as the initial Phase A estimates indicated; Space Shuttle program manager Robert Thompson acknowledged that reducing cost-per-pound was not the primary objective of the further design phases, as other technical requirements could not be met with the reduced costs. After wheels stop, the crew deactivated the flight components and prepared to exit. The craft is 11 meters in length, 8 meters in width, and about 15,400 kg. The program tested aerodynamic characteristics that would later be incorporated in design of the Space Shuttle, including unpowered landing from a high altitude and speed. Previous NASA spacecraft had used ablative heat shields, but those could not be reused. The length of the space shuttle is 37 meters from its pointed NASA chose to use ceramic tiles for thermal protection, as the shuttle could then be constructed of lightweight aluminum, and the tiles could be individually replaced as needed. [13]:II–177–183, The RS-25 engines had several improvements to enhance reliability and power. The shuttle court is 44 feet long. As S band radios can operate only within their line of sight, NASA used the Tracking and Data Relay Satellite System and the Spacecraft Tracking and Data Acquisition Network ground stations to communicate with the orbiter throughout its orbit. [13]:III-366–368, The Remote Manipulator System (RMS), also known as Canadarm, was a mechanical arm attached to the cargo bay. In September 1969, the Space Task Group, under leadership of Vice President Spiro Agnew, issued a report calling for the development of a space shuttle to bring people and cargo to low Earth orbit (LEO), as well as a space tug for transfers between orbits and the Moon, and a reusable nuclear upper stage for deep space travel. [13]:III–86 The 17 day 15 hour STS-80 mission was the longest Space Shuttle mission duration. It is one of the longest runways in the world, at 4,572 m (15,000 ft), and is 91.4 meters (300 ft) wide. Four of the GPCs were loaded with the Primary Avionics Software System (PASS), which was Space Shuttle-specific software that provided control through all phases of flight. [13]:I-415, The beginning of the development of the RS-25 Space Shuttle Main Engine was delayed for nine months while Pratt & Whitney challenged the contract that had been issued to Rocketdyne. Both tanks were slowly filled up until the launch as the oxygen and hydrogen evaporated. Each SRB measures 45.5 meters in length and 3.6 meters in diameter. Shuttle Carrier Aircraft: Length: 231 feet, 4 inches (70.5 meters) Wingspan: 195 feet 8 inches (59.7 meters) Height: 63 feet 5 inches (19.3 meters) Empty weight: 318,000 pounds (144,200 kg) Shuttle replica: Length: 122 feet (37.2 meters) Wingspan: 78 feet (23.7 meters) Height: 57 feet (17.3 meters) Weight: 171,000 pounds (77,500 kilograms) The solid-propellant motor comprised the majority of the SRB's structure. SPACE SHUTTLE ORBITER . Areas on the upper parts of the orbiter vehicle were coated in a white low-temperature reusable surface insulation, which provided protection for temperatures below 650 °C (1,200 °F). After achieving orbit, the crew would switch some of the GPCs functions from guidance, navigation, and control (GNC) to systems management (SM) and payload (PL) to support the operational mission. The aft fuselage An astronaut flew as a crewed spaceflight engineer on both STS-51-C and STS-51-J to serve as a military representative for a National Reconnaissance Office payload. The forward Each seat has manual flight controls, including rotation NASA evaluated the F-1 and J-2 engines from the Saturn rockets, and determined that they were insufficient for the requirements of the Space Shuttle; in July 1971, it issued a contract to Rocketdyne to begin development on the RS-25 engine. Four fully operational orbiters were initially built: Columbia, Challenger, Discovery, and Atlantis. [13]:III-24 On April 12, 1981, the Space Shuttle launched for the first time, and was piloted by John Young and Robert Crippen. The giant cylinder, higher than a 15-story building, with a length of 154-feet (47-meters) and a diameter of 27.5-feet (8.4-meters), is the largest single piece of the Space Shuttle. Facilities on the east coast of the US were planned for East Coast Abort Landings, while several sites in Europe and Africa were planned in the event of a Transoceanic Abort Landing. The orbiter was protected during reentry by its thermal protection system tiles, and it glided as a spaceplane to a runway landing, usually to the Shuttle Landing Facility at KSC, Florida, or to Rogers Dry Lake in Edwards Air Force Base, California. The mission cycle of the Shuttle is quite complex. [28][31], The mission crew and the Launch Control Center (LCC) personnel completed systems checks throughout the countdown. Two of the S band radios were phase modulation transceivers, and could transmit and receive information. Space Shuttle Solid Rocket Boosters (SRB) The Space Shuttle Solid Rocket Boosters are the largest solid propellant motors used for space flight. Some payloads [13]:III-347 President George W. Bush announced his Vision for Space Exploration, which called for the retirement of the Space Shuttle once it completed construction of the ISS. This vapor plume is created when the exhaust gases from the rocket engines interact with the Sound Suppression Water System (SSWS). After the Challenger disaster as a result of an O-ring failing at low temperature, the SRBs were redesigned to provide a constant seal regardless of the ambient temperature. The DPS controlled the flight controls and thrusters on the orbiter, as well as the ET and SRBs during launch. Enterprise underwent shake tests in the Mated Vertical Ground Vibration Test, where it was attached to an external tank and solid rocket boosters, and underwent vibrations to simulate the stresses of launch. Space Shuttle components include the Orbiter Vehicle (OV) with three clustered Rocketdyne RS-25 main engines, a pair of recoverable solid rocket boosters (SRBs), and the expendable external tank (ET) containing liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen. Each wing had an inboard and outboard elevon to provide flight control during reentry, along with a flap located between the wings, below the engines to control pitch. three rescue seats in place of the modular stowage and sleeping It is bisected by a net 2 feet, 6 inches wide, the top of which is suspended 5 feet from the surface of the court at the centerline. The on-orbit displays and [18], The orbiter had design elements and capabilities of both a rocket and an aircraft to allow it to launch vertically and then land as a glider. Teams wearing self-contained breathing gear tested for presence of hydrogen, hydrazine, monomethylhydrazine, nitrogen tetroxide, and ammonia to ensure the landing area was safe. MEDS was flown for the first time in May 2000 on STS-98, and the other orbiter vehicles were upgraded to it. The giant cylinder, higher than a 15-story building, with a length of 154-feet (47-meters) and a diameter of 27.5-feet (8.4-meters), is the largest single piece of the Space Shuttle. [17]:232–233 The original GPC used was the IBM AP-101B, which used a separate central processing unit (CPU) and input/output processor (IOP), and non-volatile solid-state memory. The outboard antenna, which remained in its stowed position atop the mast, was then slowly flipped over the end of the mast into its operation position. The shuttle court is 44 feet long. The landing gear was deployed 10 seconds prior to touchdown, when the orbiter was at an altitude of 91 m (300 ft) and traveling 150 m/s (288 kn). Additionally, as the orbiter vehicle only had UHF radios, international sites with only VHF radios would have been unable to communicate directly with the crew. The facilities were prepared with equipment and personnel in the event of an emergency shuttle landing, but were never used. meters/mm? Manipulator System, or RMS, is a 15.2-meter (50-foot) long articulating A European astronaut Paolo Nespoli captured this unique photo of the ISS from the departing Soyuz TMA-20 spacecraft on May 23, 2011. (2,325-cubic-foot) crew station module is a three-section pressurized Until then, space exploration depends on the continued success of space shuttle missions. Problem 2 - Measure the height in meters between the tip of the red shuttle fuel … [13]:III–264 Most missions involved staying in orbit several days to two weeks, although longer missions were possible with the Extended Duration Orbiter pallet. the tilting radiators are unlatched and moved to the proper position. reusable . All three RS-25 engines were required to reach 90% rated thrust by T−3 seconds, otherwise the GPCs would initiate an RSLS abort. The rocket motor, igniter, and nozzle were then shipped to Thiokol to be refurbished and reused on subsequent flights. carriers. ... length: 14.2 meters width: 5.4 meters height: 7.1 meters. [17]:430 Once they were returned to Cape Canaveral, they were cleaned and disassembled. Shuttle Types Edit Sky Fighter Edit. [13]:III-398 From then until the launch of Crew Dragon Demo-2 on May 30, 2020, the US launched its astronauts aboard Russian Soyuz spacecraft. For … [17]:427 At the time of launch, the SRBs were armed at T-5 minutes, and could only be electrically ignited once the RS-25 engines had ignited and were without issue. [7]:142[8]:16–18, In September 1966, NASA and the Air Force released a joint study concluding that a new vehicle was required to satisfy their respective future demands, and that a partially reusable system would be the most cost-effective solution. [8]:124, The SRBs underwent several redesigns throughout the program's lifetime. Once the orbiter vehicle was traveling subsonically, the crew took over manual control of the flight. 11) to 20 meters. STS-6 and STS-7 used SRBs that were 2,300 kg (5,000 lb) lighter than the standard-weight cases due to walls that were 0.10 mm (.004 in) thinner, but were determined to be too thin. The test flights only had two members each, the commander and pilot, who were both qualified pilots that could fly and land the orbiter. It was the only opportunity for a full view of the ISS with NASA's Space Shuttle and a European ATV cargo ship docked at … Officially 100 kilometres. Early in the Space Shuttle program, NASA flew with payload specialists, who were typically systems specialists who worked for the company paying for the payload's deployment or operations. [26] The NASA Railroad comprised three locomotives that transported SRB segments from the Florida East Coast Railway in Titusville to the KSC. and . [13]:III–13, The primary Space Shuttle landing site was the Shuttle Landing Facility at KSC, where 78 of the 133 successful landings occurred. The Space Shuttle fleet's total mission time was 1322 days, 19 hours, 21 minutes and 23 seconds.[5]. The Space Shuttle travels toward Mirwith a force that is equal and opposite to the Reaction Control System firings (Newton’s Third Law). The dimensions of the completed ISS research facility will be approximately 356 feet (109 meters) by 240 feet (73 meters), or slightly larger than a football field. and provides support for the nose section, the nose gear and the Six pressure Five complete Space Shuttle orbiter vehicles were built and flown on a total of 135 missions from 1981 to 2011, launched from the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Florida. This became the basis for the aerospaceplane, a fully reusable spacecraft that was never developed beyond the initial design phase in 1962–1963. Dismukes | Responsible NASA Official: John Ira Petty | Updated: 06/25/2003Web Accessibility and Policy Notices. The Space Shuttle continued its ascent using only the RS-25 engines. Minibuses | Shuttle Buses have average lengths of 23’ (7.01 m), widths of 7’4” (2.24 m), heights of 8’9” (2.67 m), and have a capacity of 14 (+2) seats. Contract awarded to Rockwell International: January 29, 1979. [6]:162–163, Beginning in the early 1950s, NASA and the Air Force collaborated on developing lifting bodies to test aircraft that primarily generated lift from their fuselages instead of wings, and tested the M2-F1, M2-F2, M2-F3, HL-10, X-24A, and the X-24B. During engine testing, the RS-25 experienced multiple nozzle failures, as well as broken turbine blades. [29]:239 The NASA Anvil Rule for a Shuttle launch stated that an anvil cloud could not appear within a distance of 19 km (10 nmi). Of these, two were lost in mission accidents: Challenger in 1986 and Columbia in 2003, with a total of fourteen astronauts killed. Starfleet places an order to 800 craft to be distributed within the Federation with the first 10 being assigned to Starfleet Command. After STS-4, NASA declared its Space Transportation System (STS) operational. The Kármán line is the definition of the edge of space. — Space Shuttle Atlantis is "go" for launch. The orbiter vehicle's reentry was controlled by the GPCs, which followed a preset angle-of-attack plan to prevent unsafe heating of the TPS. Enterprise was designed as a test vehicle, and did not include engines or heat shielding. [47] NASA management was criticized afterwards for accepting increased risk to the crew in exchange for higher mission rates. Enterprise was taken back to California in August 1979, and later served in the development of the SLC-6 at Vandenberg AFB in 1984. waste management system, the personal hygiene station and the work/dining The middeck At approximately T+7 seconds, the Space Shuttle rolled to a heads-down orientation at an altitude of 110 meters (350 ft), which reduced aerodynamic stress and provided an improved communication and navigation orientation. [13]:III–18–20 STS-3 landed at the White Sands Space Harbor in New Mexico and required extensive post-processing after exposure to the gypsum-rich sand, some of which was found in Columbia debris after STS-107. The five GPCs were separated in three separate bays within the mid-deck to provide redundancy in the event of a cooling fan failure. When the doors are opened, [8]:137 After the Space Shuttle arrived at one of the two launchpads, it would connect to the Fixed and Rotation Service Structures, which provided servicing capabilities, payload insertion, and crew transportation. Each Space Shuttle orbiter was designed for a projected lifespan of 100 launches or ten years of operational life, although this was later extended. [6]:167 NASA and the Air Force elected to use solid-propellant boosters because of the lower costs and the ease of refurbishing them for reuse after they landed in the ocean. [17]:384–385, The Spacelab module was a European-funded pressurized laboratory that was carried within the payload bay and allowed for scientific research while in orbit. [43][13]:III–489–490 The Space Shuttle was originally intended as a launch vehicle to deploy satellites, which it was primarily used for on the missions prior to the Challenger disaster. The RMS was built by the Canadian company Spar Aerospace, and was controlled by an astronaut inside the orbiter's flight deck using their windows and closed-circuit television. Studio model. The upper Shuttle Court Width. [30] The Shuttle Launch Weather Officer monitored conditions until the final decision to scrub a launch was announced. During the two-day mission, Young and Crippen tested equipment on board the shuttle, and found several of the ceramic tiles had fallen off the top side of the Columbia. [13]:II-86 To limit the fuel consumption while the orbiter was docked at the ISS, the Station-to-Shuttle Power Transfer System (SSPTS) was developed to convert and transfer station power to the orbiter. This allows heat radiation from both sides of the panels, whereas The shuttle payload bay’s length remains a mystery. The RS-25 engines were throttled at T+7 minutes 30 seconds to limit vehicle acceleration to 3 g. At 6 seconds prior to main engine cutoff (MECO), which occurred at T+8 minutes 30 seconds, the RS-25 engines were throttled down to 67%. [13]:III–238, Approximately four hours prior to deorbit, the crew began preparing the orbiter vehicle for reentry by closing the payload doors, radiating excess heat, and retracting the Ku band antenna. The initial design of the reusable Space Shuttle envisioned an increasingly cheap launch platform to deploy commercial and government satellites. [13]:III-443 Atlantis is on display at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex,[13]:III-456 Discovery is at the Udvar-Hazy Center,[13]:III-451 Endeavour is on display at the California Science Center,[13]:III-457 and Enterprise is displayed at the Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum. handrails to enable the crew to perform a variety of tasks. Early missions brought the Grid Compass, one of the first laptop computers, as the PGSC, but later missions brought Apple and Intel laptops. The LH2 prevalves were opened at T−9.5 seconds in preparation for engine start. In addition, [13]:III−490, On January 28, 1986, STS-51-L disintegrated 73 seconds after launch, due to the failure of the right SRB, killing all seven astronauts on board Challenger. The orbital altitude and inclination were mission-dependent, and the Space Shuttle's orbits varied from 220 km (120 nmi) to 620 km (335 nmi). Space Shuttle Columbia’s irst landing was at NASA’s Dryden Flight ... At about 610 meters (2,000 feet) above the ground, the Shuttle commander raises the nose, which slows both the ... several vehicles by tearing the paper to length. At T−3 hours 45 minutes, the LH2 fast-fill was complete, followed 15 minutes later by the LOX. The Space Shuttle was a partially reusable low Earth orbital spacecraft system operated from 1981 to 2011 by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) as part of the Space Shuttle program.Its official program name was Space Transportation System (STS), taken from a 1969 plan for a system of reusable spacecraft where it was the only item funded for development. [8]:40–41, On November 24, 1980, Columbia was mated with its external tank and solid-rocket boosters, and was moved to LC-39 on December 29. [13]:III–224 In its final decade of operation, the Space Shuttle was used for the construction of the International Space Station. The total liftoff weight for a space shuttle was approximately 4.4 million pounds (1,995,806 kg), or over 2,000 tons. [44] Early safety analyses advertised by NASA engineers and management predicted the chance of a catastrophic failure resulting in the death of the crew as ranging from 1 in 100 launches to as rare as 1 in 100,000. In 2007, NASA engineers devised a solution so Space Shuttle flights could cross the year-end boundary. Columbia originally had modified SR-71 zero-zero ejection seats installed for the ALT and first four missions, but these were disabled after STS-4 and removed after STS-9. Later that month, Rockwell began converting STA-099 to OV-099, later named Challenger. The orbiter vehicle reoriented itself to a nose-forward position with a 40° angle-of-attack, and the forward reaction control system (RCS) jets were emptied of fuel and disabled prior to reentry. [13]:III-349 One additional Hubble Space Telescope servicing mission was approved in October 2006. On earlier missions the Space Shuttle remained in the heads-down orientation to maintain communications with the tracking station in Bermuda, but later missions, beginning with STS-87, rolled to a heads-up orientation at T+6 minutes for communication with the tracking and data relay satellite constellation. [13]:III-21, The crew compartment comprised three decks, and was the pressurized, habitable area on all Space Shuttle missions. [6]:163–166[4], After the release of the Space Shuttle Task Group report, many aerospace engineers favored the Class III, fully reusable design because of perceived savings in hardware costs. Challenge #2—Glide ratio Needed: Space Shuttle Glider and tape measure What To Do: Gently launch the Space Shuttle Glider horizontally from a … Operational missions launched numerous satellites, Interplanetary probes, and the Hubble Space Telescope (HST); conducted science experiments in orbit; and participated in construction and servicing of the International Space Station (ISS). the four aft radiator panels radiate from the upper side only. The displays and controls on the left are for operating the orbiter, Additionally, the orbiter deployed a high-bandwidth Ku band radio out of the cargo bay, which could also utilized as a rendezvous radar. The cockpit, The airlock thrust structure supports the three space shuttle main engines, Failure of the O-ring allowed hot combustion gases to escape from between the booster sections and burn through the adjacent ET, leading to a sequence of events which caused the orbiter to disintegrate. The Remote and one contingency or emergency EVA, and mobility aids such as The OMS engines were used after main engine cut-off (MECO) for orbital insertion. In case of a software error that would cause erroneous reports from the four PASS GPCs, a fifth GPC ran the Backup Flight System, which used a different program and could control the Space Shuttle through ascent, orbit, and reentry, but could not support an entire mission. The other two S band radios were frequency modulation transmitters, and were used to transmit data to NASA. to see on television monitors what his hands are doing. Once in space and after Shuttle Endeavour's payload bay doors were opened, the mast was deployed to it's full 60 meter (200 foot) length. In this case, the number of successes is determined by the number of successful Space Shuttle missions. SPACE SHUTTLE ORBITER Introduction ... bay were set at 60 feet in length and 15 feet in diameter to accommodate the largest national security related payloads. table is also provided in the middeck.
