    Dec 17,  · Space Shuttle External Tank Foam Insulation Since the loss of the Space Shuttle Columbia in , we have received many questions about the foam used on the Shuttle's External Tank. These questions have continued as NASA has struggled to eliminate the problem of foam shedding during subsequent return to flight missions. Jul 07,  · For readers who would like a more succinct and inclusive history of the shuttle’s life (decision, design, implementation, and operational performance) in a single volume, The Space Shuttle by Dennis Jenkins might be considered. For the serious space historian and enthusiast however, Heppenheimer’s book is an indispensable reference.

    Audit of Space Shuttle Safety Upgrades Introduction The Space Shuttle is the only U.S. vehicle that can launch humans and payloads into space and safely return them from an Earth orbit. Since the Space Shuttle Challenger mishap,1 NASA has improved the safety of the Space Shuttle; the estimated risk of catastrophic failure during launch. The primary mission for the Space Shuttle is the delivery of payloads to Earth orbit. The shuttle system can place payloads of 29 kilograms (65 pounds) into orbit. Payloads with propulsion stages can place satellites into high Earth orbit or into lunar or planetary trajectories. The Space Shuttle is more than a transport vehicle.

The fixed service structure, located on the west side of the pad, is a square cross section steel structure that provides access to the space shuttle orbiter and to the rotating service structure.

It is a part of the structure removed from the Apollo mobile launchers when they were converted for space shuttle use. 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. Space systems need state-of-the-art technology Any reusable system locks us in to the then current technology for a very long time If you make a mistake with an expendable launch vehicle you might lose it But you do not keep wasting money trying to backfit change modes into a flawed out-of-date system.

The Shuttle’s Thermal Protection System (TPS) By Dennis R. Jenkins. During the original studies of lifting-reentry vehicles during the late s and s, there had been a great debate over the relative merits of active cooling systems versus passive systems for the vehicle structure.

This class also consists of two subclasses: primary C/W, which is a hardware system, and backup (B/U) C/W, which is a software system. Caution and Warning System Overview.

The primary C/W system has the capacity to monitor inputs, which are received from transducers through either signal conditioners or flight forward MDMs. Risk Management and the Space Shuttle Challenger Disaster while considering the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster and how the risks should have been better managed to prevent the disaster.
