    The RS engines were formerly better known as the Space Shuttle Main Engine, and at the end of the shuttle program, 16 of its engines were transferred to the SLS program. While the shuttle used three of the engines per flight, SLS will use four; one of the ways the rocket is generating greater power than shuttle. The Space Shuttle was a partially reusable low Earth orbital spacecraft system that was operated from to by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) as part of the Space Shuttle 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 Cost per launch: US$ million () to billion ().

    If the shuttle was not the DC-3 of the space age, the fact remains that the shuttle remains a huge advance in capability, technology, and even safety over all other spacecraft. We cannot let the familiarity of long years and the investment of our personal time and energy in any one program or any one vehicle confuse that program or that vehicle.   The Gulfstream II in the shadow of the shuttle Twenty years ago a primer-green Grumman Gulfstream II business jet left the factory in Savannah, Georgia, and flew to the Grumman plant at Bethpage, on New York's Long Island, to be transformed into an important tool for our nation's space program. This aircraft and three others that would follow were destined .

[Lisa J Bjarke; L J Ehernberger; United States. National Aeronautics and Space Administration. A technique to use an aircraft to measure wind profiles in the altitude range of 1, to 18, m has been demon-strated at NASA Ames-Dryden Flight Research Facility. This demonstration was initiated at the request of NASA Johnson Space Center to determine if an aircraft could mea-sure wind profiles in support of space shuttle launches.

The Jimsphere balloon is currently the device used to measure pre-launch wind profiles for the space shuttle. However, it takes approximately an hour for the Jimsphere to travel through the altitudes of interest.

Administration’s Marshall Space Flight Center monitors the winds aloft at Kennedy Space Center in support of the Space Shuttle Program day of launch operations. High resolution wind profies are derived from radar tracked Jimsphere balloons, which are launched at predetermined times preceding the launch, for evaluation.

Therefore, an in-flight wind calibration technique was developed that corrects for the inaccuracy of the true heading, the constant offset of the pitch angle, and the underestimation of the true.

Inthe facility was rewarded with major national programs involving testing of new and larger propulsion systems. The Space Shuttle test program continued at a record pace with the rolling thunder of the engines echoing across south Mississippi three to four times a week.

Over 22 years of service it completed 27 missions before disintegrating during re-entry near the end of its 28th mission, STS on February 1,resulting in the.

Sometimes I became so fascinated by what I was reading I wanted more detail than the book offered, but there is still a wealth of knowledge and it is written well/5(37).

The politics of risk. By the late s and early s the space shuttle was being portrayed as a reusable airliner capable of carrying ton payloads into orbit and 5-ton payloads back to earth. Shuttle boosters are shown being tested at the Thiokol Corporation, and work is shown on the space shuttle Columbia.

Also shown in the film is the launch of Pioneer spacecraft aimed at Venus. Brandl later moved into performing Reliability analyses for ground operations equipment in support of the Space Shuttle Program.

Brandl began working for NASA in and spent three years as the lead of the Safety Engineering Branch for the Kennedy Space Center SMA Division in support of the Launch Services Program (LSP).

SPACE TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM. SPACE SHUTTLE PROGRAM. The Space Shuttle is developed by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

NASA coordinates and manages the Space Transportation System (NASA's name for the overall Shuttle program), including intergovernmental agency requirements and international and joint projects. NASA also oversees the launch and space. The Space Shuttle —composed of an orbiter launched with two reusable solid rocket boosters and a disposable external fuel tank —carried up to eight astronauts and up to 50, lb (23, kg) of payload into low Earth orbit (LEO).
