Space Shuttle


For thirty years from 1981 to 2011, the main work horse of NASA operations has been the Space Shuttle. Six were built including one experimental one (Enterprise) which never made it into space. The original name for shuttle Enterprise had been Constitution but after a vigorous campaign by Star Trek fans, it was renamed Enterprise. Of the five that went into space, two (Columbia, Challenger) never made it back and were sadly lost. The space shuttles had been built by a once powerful company, Rockwell International which latter splintered into two companies.

The cockpit resembles that of a Boeing aircraft with all the controls that is has to offer the pilot. There are hoops on the overhead controls which you can't see from the picture which are used both to prevent someone pressing the wrong button and also for a person to hold onto something. Unlike in many television programmes such as Star Trek, the space shuttle does not have its own gravity so when people aren't strapped in, they float around.

The space shuttle is launched on the back of large booster rockets which provide the necessary lift to break free from Earths orbit. The shuttles are placed on the back of the rockets and then wheeled out into position. The launcher moves at a very slow 4mph. Once the shuttle has blasted into space, the booster rockets detach themselves and fall back into the Atlantic where they are presumably picked up by NASA. During one mission on 28th January 1986, Challenger blew up during take-off. The cause was put down to fault an O-Ring in the booster rocket. The fuel inside the rocket wasn't protected from heat which caused the rocket to explode.

Space Shuttle Launcher



h Another method of launching the shuttle was piggybacking it on a Boeing aircraft but that method was only used during the experimental stage and only for Enterprise.

Space Shuttle Piggy Back



Once in space, the astronauts would perform whatever the mission entailed. These missions were mainly either taking a satiellite into space on behalf of a commercial organisation, servicing a satiellite, taking people or supplies to a space station, SpaceLab, International Space Station or Mir. During the nineties, space shuttles were used in an era of cooperation to ferry cosmonauts back and forth to the Mir spacestation. When Mir (Freedom) closed down, both the United States and the Russia along with other international partner began to build the International Space Station.

Space Shuttle Docking with the ISS



Once it has fulfilled its mission, it returns to Earth. Re-entering the atmosphere requires protection from temperatures of at least 1,650 Celsius or 3,000 Fahrenheit. The shuttle is covered with special carbon-carbon tiles which are resistant to the heat. If those tiles weren't there, the aluminium core would boil away in a matter of minutes. When the shuttle re-enters, its enters at an angle of 40 degrees, any more would be cause it to flip and be deadly. Once it has broken through the upper atmosphere, the shuttle comes into land like a plane.

Space Shuttle Atlantis



With the end of the shuttle programme, the remaining four shuttles are being handed to museums across the United States. Atlantis will stay in Florida and be resident at the Kennedy Space Center. Endeavour goes to the California Science Center in Los Angeles. Discovery goes to the Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C., although it won't be the main site in the centre of the City but its museum building near the Dulles International Airport. The fourth, Enterprise which never flew will go to the Intrepid Museum of Air and Space in New York City. Of what can be gathered so far, you won't be able to get aboard and see the cockpit or any the cargo bay. Hopefully, they'll be mockups of those area so you can see what they are like.

Below I have detailed the missions of all shuttle missions from the Nasa site, to find out more about individual missions, visit http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/shuttle/shuttlemissions/archives/sts-107.html , replacing the number 107 with the missing code you want information about.

The future of space missions will revolve around the Russians ferrying Americans to and from the International Space Station. Satiellites will be placed into space using rockets. If they go wrong, repairs might involve space walks from the ISS but the likelihood of that happening is remote. Currently there are a number of companies that are racing to build the next generation of shuttle but until then...
