    Template:Infobox spacecraft class. The Space Shuttle orbiter was the reusable spaceplane component of the Space Shuttle ed by NASA, the U.S. space agency, this vehicle could carry astronauts and payloads into low Earth orbit, perform in-space operations, then re-enter the atmosphere and land as a glider, returning its crew and any on-board payload to the Earth. The space shuttle is the family of manned launch vehicles used by US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (Nasa) to place payloads and crews into low earth orbit. The first space shuttle was launched in April The first orbiter was the Enterprise which was a non-orbital test vehicle.

    The crew of STS,NASA's first return to flight mission, is in the middle of a two-day inspectionof the shuttle Discovery here at NASA's Kennedy Space Center. and press the “Launch Orbiter” button to launch the scenario. Once the mission has been loaded (this can take a few moments), you will see in front of you run-way 33 of the SLF (Shuttle Landing Facility) at the Kennedy Space Center, Cape Canaveral, Florida. You are in control of a Delta-glider, a powerful futuristic spacecraft, aligned and.

      In a letter Thomas McPherson described his use of the Space Shuttle test model. “I have worked at NASA Johnson Space Center for many years and played a part in the NASA R/C Boeing – Space Shuttle combination on display at the Museum. The early efforts to fly the Shuttle model after its release from the were a disaster. The Space Shuttle Orbiter has proven itself to be a versatile, reliable vehicle capable of carrying out a number of tasks. Employing a payload bay measuring 60 feet long by 15 feet wide, the Orbiter is designed to carry payloads into space and perform missions at .

This report presents information for the Crew Hatch Jettison Test (0A) which was conducted in the Texas A&M Low Speed Wind Tunnel. The test was performed with a Oscale Space Shuttle Orbiter (Model ) from 6/15/ to 6/22/). The purpose for this test was to verify that the crew hatch, once jettisoned would clear the orbiter.

Space shuttle orbiter crew hatch jettison test using a scale model () in the Texas A & M low speed wind tunnel (OA) Author: C E Mitchell ; Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center. The test objective was to verify that the crew hatch, once jettisoned, would clear the orbiter under various simulated flight conditions.

Several model hatches were used with the scale orbiter (Model ). The model's angle of attack was set at 10, 15, and 20 degrees while the sideslip had values of minus 5, 0, and plus 5 : C.

ORBITER FLIGHT CREW ESCAPE SYSTEMS. IN-FLIGHT CREW ESCAPE SYSTEM. The in-flight crew escape system is provided for use only when the orbiter would be in controlled gliding flight and unable to reach a runway.

This condition would normally lead to ditching. The crew escape system provides the flight crew with an alternative to water ditching or to landing on terrain other than a. As a Closeout Crew member with United Space Alliance (USA) at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, Arriëns and his teammates are the last people shuttle astronauts see before they leave Earth.

On launch day, the seven members of the Closeout Crew help the astronauts strap into the shuttle's crew module and take care of any other last-minute.

space agency, this vehicle could carry astronauts and payloads into low Earth orbit, perform in-space operations, then re-enter the atmosphere and land as a glider, returning its crew and any on-board.

ORBITER MANUFACTURING AND ASSEMBLY The structures of the orbiter were manufactured at various companies under contract to Rockwell International's Space Transportation Systems Division, Downey, Calif. The upper and lower forward fuselage, crew compartment, forward reaction control system and aft fuselage were manufactured at Rockwell's Space Transportation Systems Division.

Figure: Space Shuttle Atlantis while in orbit. The orbiter was the heart and brains of the Space Shuttle and served as the crew transport vehicle that carried astronauts to and from space.

NASA retired its three operational orbiters at the end of the Space Shuttle Program in. The Space Shuttle program originated in the late s as a means of reducing the cost of spaceflight by introducing a reusable final agreed design would feature a reusable spaceplane, a disposable external tank and reusable solid-fuel rocket contract to build the spaceplane, which eventually came to be known as the "orbiter", was awarded to North American Rockwell.

An outer hatch can be opened to exit into space. The airlock's volume is about cubic meters ( cubic feet). A docking mechanism to attach to the International Space Station is located atop the airlock.

The Space Shuttle orbiter was the orbital spacecraft of the Space Shuttle program operated by NASA, the space agency of the United States. The orbiter was a reusable winged "space-plane", a mixture of rockets, spacecraft, and space-plane could carry crews and payloads into low Earth orbit, perform on-orbit operations, then re-enter the atmosphere and land as a glider, returning.he work of preparing a space shuttle for flight takes place primarily at the Launch Complex 39 Area.

The process actually begins at the end of each flight, with a landing at the center or, after landing at an alternate site, the return of the orbiter atop a shuttle carrier aircraft. Kennedy’s Shuttle Landing Facility is the pri-mary landing site.The tests showed that the Orbiter could fly in the atmosphere and land like an airplane.

The Enterprise remained a test article. Its legacy of information was incorporated into the next shuttle, the Columbia (OV). On Apthe Columbia was the first Space Shuttle to fly into orbit.
