They began by unpacking tools, safety tethers and work platforms. Each relay mirror is polished to a new prescription that will compensate for the incorrect figure on HST 's primary mirror. Subsequent shuttles were built only for missions with a crew of more than two, including seats in the lower deck, and ejection seat options were deemed to be infeasible, so Challenger, DiscoveryAtlantisand Endeavour were built with no ejection seats. Aussat-2 was the second in a system of three to be operated by Australia's national satellite company, Aussat Proprietary Ltd. A small drop of protein solution was injected into each chamber shortly after entering orbit.

By taking detailed measurements on a human strapped into the seat, scientists gained data on the functional organization of the human vestibular and orientation systems, and the vestibular adaptation processes under microgravity. Bowersox fired Endeavour's small maneuvering jets and moved the shuttle slowly away from HST. After launch, the astronauts carried out a series of checks on the vehicle and went to sleep seven and a half hours after liftoff. Both seats also had rudder controls, to allow rudder movement in flight and nose-wheel steering on the ground. The dynamics of the heart pump action is one possible factor in the adaptation of the cardiovascular system to weightlessness. Abort to orbit[ edit ] An abort to orbit ATO was available when the intended orbit could not be reached but a lower stable orbit was possible.

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. On flight STS D, it was planned that payload specialist Jake Garn should conduct this experiment in addition to some investigations in the space adaptation syndrome. Jake Garn was great. The old WFPC has been used to study bright, high-contrast objects, such as major solar system planets and nearby star clusters and galaxies.

They enable HST to find its orientation with respect to the Earth's magnetic field. Mission specialist Jeffrey Hoffmanan astronomer and astrophysicist, checked out an image intensifier coupled with a Nikon camera, a STS-61 space shuttle mission report book that intensifies usable light by a factor of about 10, After the Challenger and Columbia losses, great interest was expressed in this.

He will also tried to perform a juggling act in zero-g Rhea Seddon - a ball and jacks and a Slinky David Griggs - a yo-yo Jeffrey Hoffman - a Wheelo, magnetic marbles and a spring-wound. Additionally, the degassing units and sensors which STS-61 space shuttle mission report book during the STSD were replaced.

The following members of the STS D crew demonstrated the effects of weightlessness on "dime-store" toys: Karol Bobko - a spinning top and three unrestrained gyroscopes Donald Williams - a spring-wound flipping mouse and a paddle ball.

Stowed for launch its height was 9. To replace the actuator would have required a rollback to the Orbiter Processing Facility OPF because access to the actuator was only through the Main Landing Gear wheel well.

They would then parachute to earth or the sea. After much analysis by a team at the GSFC, it was determined that the dump failure was due to noise on the communications link between the spacecraft and the ground. The release by Thornton imparted zero velocity to the arrays and then the orbiter did a small burn to put some distance between it and the array.

Therefore, taking this option due to a technical malfunction was very unlikely, although a medical emergency on board was another possible scenario that could have necessitated an AOA abort. A small drop of protein solution was injected into each chamber shortly after entering orbit.

The second array was replaced in exactly the same fashion. STS A holds the record for the largest crew: eight people, aboard any single spacecraft for the entire period from launch to landing.

Successful crystallization of these materials, which are very difficult to crystallize on Earth, will allow their three-dimensional atomic structure to be determined by Xray crystallography.

Then the HSP was lowered from its position to guide rails for the unit. Thornton replaced HST's solar arrays during the second planned EVA Thornton had red dashed stripes on her spacesuit while Tom Akers had diagonal red dashed stripes, which helped flight controllers tell the two spacewalkers apart.

They supply the telescope with 4. The dynamics of the heart pump action is one possible factor in the adaptation of the cardiovascular system to weightlessness.

The mid-deck contained a port-side hatch that crew used for entry and exit while on Earth. A STS-61 space shuttle mission report book hour scrub turn-a-round was put into effect with a launch window extending between am to am on December 02, It was only these two that were planned to be flown with a crew of two.The mission included basic and applied microgravity research in fields of materials science, life sciences and technology, and communications and navigation.

Though the orbiter was controlled from Johnson Space Center, scientific operations STS-61 space shuttle mission report book controlled from the German Space Operations Center at Oberpfaffenhofen, near Munich.
