    The year-old orbiter, with a crew of six astronauts, thundered from the launchpad at Kennedy Space Center at p.m. as tens of thousands of spectators cheered NASA's oldest and most-traveled. Template:Infobox spaceflight STS, or HST-SM4 (Hubble Space Telescope Servicing Mission 4), was the fifth and final space shuttle mission to the Hubble Space Telescope (HST).[NASA 1][1] Launch occurred on 11 May at pm EDT.[2][3][4] Landing occurred on 24 May at am EDT,[5] with the mission lasting a total of just under 13 days. Space ShuttleAtlantis carried two new instruments.

    The Space Shuttle Challenger disaster occurred on Janu , when the NASA Space Shuttle orbiter Challenger (mission STSL) broke apart 73 seconds into its flight, leading to the deaths of its seven crew members, which included five NASA astronauts and two Payload spacecraft disintegrated over the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Cape Canaveral, Florida, at EST. [3] [4] Launch occurred on at p.m. EDT. [2] [5] [6] The mission is being flown by Space Shuttle Atlantis, with another shuttle, Space Shuttle Endeavour, ready to launch in case a rescue mission is needed. Due to an anomaly aboard the telescope that occurred on Septem , STS was delayed until May to prepare a.

      This will be the fourth spaceflight for Kelly, 51, a former NASA shuttle commander and Navy test pilot whose identical twin brother, Mark, also was chosen as an astronaut in   F-1 Launch (11/8/84, STS A, Discovery) This shuttle mission not only launched Leasat F1 but also retrieved Westar and Palapa satellites also built by Hughes. All operations for shuttle ejection, orbit raising and in-orbit test of Leasat were nominal and spacecraft control was turned over to the Hughes OCC to provide service to the Navy.

The Space Shuttle was a partially reusable low Earth orbital spacecraft system operated by the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

Its official program name was Space Transportation System (STS), taken from a plan for a system of reusable spacecraft of which it was the only item funded for development. Operational missions launched numerous satellites, conducted.

The astronauts then returned to the warmth of Discovery's crew compartment. Rhea Seddon snared the switch repeatedly with the switch-pullers, but Syncom IV/Leasat 3 remained inert. The middeck Continuous Flow Electrophoresis System unit made its sixth spaceflight on mission STSD.

Final in series of generic space walks begun earlier in year. Astronauts also evaluated tools, tethers and foot restraint platform intended for the upcoming Hubble Space Telescope servicing mission. STS (ISS assembly flight ULF7) was the th and final mission of the American Space Shuttle program.

It used the orbiter Atlantis and hardware originally processed for the STS contingency mission, which was not flown. STS launched on 8 Julyand landed on 21 Julyfollowing a one-day mission extension. The four-person crew was the smallest of any shuttle mission since Operator: NASA.

STS Hubble Space Telescope Servicing Mission 3B Cost to Taxpayers NASA's Hubble Space Telescope is the first observatory designed for routine maintenance, upgrade, and refurbishment on orbit.

The program is planned as a year mission with periodic servicing by shuttle astronauts. Should the rescue mission have been needed, the crew and vehicle for STS would assume the rescue mission profile and become STS All potential rescue missions were to be launched with a crew of four, and would return with ten or eleven crew members, depending on the number of crew launched on the rescued shuttle.

The findings of the Mission Planning and Operations Team (MPOT) of the Space Transportation System (STS) L Data Design and Analysis Task Force (DDATF) were presented to the Mission Planning and Operations Panel (MPOP) of the Presidential Commission on the Space Shuttle Challenger Accident in a series of eight formal meeting sessions and.

Dragon was the first US spacecraft to attach to the ISS since the retirement of NASA’s Space Shuttle program last July following the STS mission of shuttle Atlantis. The ft ( This banner text can have markup.

This manned maneuvering unit and its predecessors are, as the name implies, maneuvering devices. Flight is the function of the spacecraft.

Project Zeus – SDI – Shuttle Discovery, Mission STS A NASA: Release # PMSA, January The Shuttle Discovery was launched at a.m. this date. STS A had two primary objectives, to deploy the ANIK-D2 (a Canadian communications satellite) and SYNCOM IV-1 for DOD.

Mission managers, meanwhile, approved a one-day extension to the shuttle Endeavour's flight to give the astronauts more time to move life support system racks and exercise gear into the new module.
