      The Space Shuttle Decision: NASA's Search for a Reusable Space Vehicle (NASA SP) by T.A. Heppenheimer is an excellent historical account of the political decision to build the Shuttle. The Space Shuttle at Work (NASA SP/EP, ) This relatively short publication provides some excellent basic information on the Shuttle.   Shuttle Reference Manual The Shuttle Reference Manual, most recently revised in , is an indepth technical guide to space shuttle equipment and operations. It was accurate in and while most of the information provided here from the manual is still accurate today, some facts may be outdated.

      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 funded for First flight: Ap   February 1, One of the most tragic events in the history of space exploration is the loss of the space shuttle Columbia and all seven .

      In , President Nixon announced that NASA would develop a reusable space shuttle or space transportation system (STS). NASA decided that the shuttle would consist of an orbiter attached to solid rocket boosters and an external fuel tank and . Space Shuttle Probabilistic Risk Assessment Overview Teri L.

NASA System Safety Handbook Volume 2: System Safety Concepts, Guidelines, and Implementation Examples National Aeronautics and Space Administration NASA Headquarters Washington, D.C. November A photographic image retoucher turned his artistic eye to the space shuttle program, generating a book with decades-old images that look like they were taken in.

Mr. Dennis Jenkins' book, "Space Shuttle: The History of the National Space Transportation System: The First Missions" is one of the most amazing technical books on space vehicles ever printed.

The amount of historical, technical, and operational information packed into these couple hundred pages is AMAZING!!/5(41). Space Safety Regulations and Standards is the definitive book on regulatory initiatives involving space safety, new space safety standards, and safety related to new space technologies under development.

More than 30 world experts come together in this book to share their detailed knowledge of regulatory and standard making processes in the. Due to this collection's heavy weight (18 lbs) non-standard shipping costs apply. See shopping cart for details. During 30 years and missions, the U.S. space shuttle carried more crewmembers to orbit than all other launch systems, from all other countries combined, and carried more than million pounds of payload to orbit/5(61).

The Space Shuttle Columbia disaster was a fatal incident in the United States space program that occurred on February 1,when the Space Shuttle Columbia (OV) disintegrated as it reentered the atmosphere, killing all seven crew disaster was the second fatal accident in the Space Shuttle program, after the breakup of Challenger soon after on: Over Texas and Louisiana.

Fully supported by the International Association for the Advancement of Space Safety (IAASS), written by the leading figures in the industry, with frontline experience from projects ranging from the Apollo missions, Skylab, the Space Shuttle and the International Space Station, this book provides a comprehensive reference for aerospace.

Case Study: NASA Space Shuttle Flight Control Software The National Aeronautics and Space Administration leads the world in research in aeronautics and space-related activities.

The space shuttle program, begun in the late s, was designed to support exploration of Earth's atmosphere and to lead the nation back into human exploration of space. Criticism of the Space Shuttle program stemmed from claims that NASA's Shuttle program failed to achieve its promised cost and utility goals, as well as design, cost, management, and safety issues.

Fundamentally, it failed in the goal of reducing the cost of space access. Space Shuttle incremental per-pound launch costs ultimately turned out to be considerably higher than those. NASA officials talked about the improvements to the space shuttle that will be further tested during the planned mission of Space Shuttle Discovery in.

The space shuttle Columbia, on Mission STS, broke up on Feb. 1,killing its seven-member crew. An investigation led to changes in NASA procedures.

Space Shuttle Reusable low Earth orbital spacecraft The three parts that made up the space shuttle were the orbiter - the part that resembled an aeroplane, the large orange external tank and the 2. The Space Shuttle Challenger disaster is probably the most significant event in the history of spaceflight in terms of its impact on the general public and on the US space death of a crew of seven, which for the first time included civilian astronaut Christa McAuliffe, in a fiery explosion broadcasted in national television for days after the accident left a mark in the public.

NASA officials spoke to reporters about the status of space shuttle programs and the planned launch of Space Shuttle Discovery in July. The mission. From combat reconnaissance missions over the skies of Vietnam, to Space Shuttle missions, to climbing some of the highest peaks across the globe, Mike Mullane knows what teamwork, leadership and safety are all about.

His programs on these topics have educated, inspired and motivated tens of thousands of people from every walk of business and government. (The FAA is contemplating new rules that take this extra safety time into account, but only if it is very carefully analyzed through known models within a known range of experience and with materials thoroughly tested.

None of these conditions apply to the Space Shuttle Main Engine. Inthe Space Shuttle -- after nearly 30 years of duty -- will be retired from service " In that same speech he outlined the plan that would develop a.

- - Created through FAIR USE for educational purposes - - STS You need a sound system with a lot of power and a great sub (turned up to house shaking level) to get the right effect of this. Columbia was the first Space Shuttle orbiter to be delivered to NASA's Kennedy Space Center, Fla., in March Columbia and the STS crew were lost Feb.

As a major transportation link between Earth and Low Earth Orbit (LEO), the Shuttle has kept the United States on the cutting edge of space.

Post-Challenger Evaluation of Space Shuttle Risk Assessment and Management is the compilation of the conclusions and recommendations of the Committee on Shuttle Criticality Review and Hazard Analysis Audit. It is intended to assist NASA in taking the prudent additional steps which will provide a reasonable and responsible level of flight safety.

The Safety Culture program is celebrating its year anniversary at NASA. Over the past decade, program members have dedicated their time and energy to providing a platform for the NASA community to voice safety concerns without repercussion, communicating safety issues to agency and center leaders, and developing education to encourage contributions to.
