Shuttle Atlantis STS-132 - Amazing Shuttle Launch Experience
Kennedy Space Center, May 14th 2010. I was privileged to travel to the Kennedy Space Center, to watch the launch of Atlantis, on what was then, the final "scheduled" flight of the orbiter (STS-132). This video is my homage to the shuttle program, through the in depth experience of a single orbiter launch. I believe we should be thankful for the Atlantis orbiter, all her astronauts, the countless NASA staff who made her fly, and the American people who created a space vehicle of extraordinary power and grace. This footage incorporates numerous camera views from the ground, footage I took during launch, and video and audio from NASA showing the orbiter stack itself, during takeoff and flight -- in order to experiencing the all the preparation and the resulting eight and a half minute exhilarating ride into space. In places, the timeline of the actual events has been extended slightly to allow us to see different viewpoints of the same moment, and better experience the amazing feat of launching a spacecraft into orbit. Enjoy the ride! MORE BACKGROUND ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ After this flight, Atlantis was processed and prepared to fly one last time... this time as "on call" STS-335, which would remain flight ready, should either of the remaining two orbiters flights require a rescue mission. A rescue flight was not needed and Congress, in a rare moment of clarity, appropriated enough money to extend the program to allowed the already "flight ready" Atlantis to launch one last time and to become the last shuttle mission of the Shuttle Program, as STS-135. Atlantis now has a home at the Kennedy Space Center.

NASA Video: Launch and Return of the Space Shuttle Atlantis
The Space Shuttle Atlantis (Orbiter Vehicle Designation: OV‑104) is a Space Shuttle orbiter belonging to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the spaceflight and space exploration agency of the United States.[2] Constructed by the Rockwell International company in Southern California and delivered to the Kennedy Space Center in Eastern Florida in April 1985, Atlantis is the fourth operational and the second-to-last Space Shuttle built.[3][4] Its maiden flight was STS-51-J from 3 to 7 October 1985. Atlantis embarked on its 33rd and final mission, also the final mission of a space shuttle, STS-135, on 8 July 2011. STS-134 by Endeavour was expected to be the final flight before STS-135 was authorized in October 2010. STS-135 took advantage of the processing for the STS-335 Launch On Need mission that would have been necessary if STS-134's crew became stranded in orbit.[5] Atlantis landed for the final time at the Kennedy Space Center on 21 July 2011. By the end of its final mission, Atlantis had orbited the Earth a total of 4,848 times, traveling nearly 126,000,000 mi (203,000,000 km) or more than 525 times the distance from the Earth to the Moon. Atlantis is named after RV Atlantis, a two-masted sailing ship that operated as the primary research vessel for the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution from 1930 to 1966.[6]

Space Shuttle Era: "External Tank and Solid Rocket Boosters" 2011 NASA KSC
Support this channel: https://www.patreon.com/jeffquitney more at http://scitech.quickfound.net/astro/space_shuttle_news.html Overview of the Space Shuttle External Tank (ET) and Solid Rocket Boosters (SRBs). playlist: Space Shuttle HIstory http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL432F188226C29E68&feature=view_all "Study of Solid Rocket Motors for a Space Shuttle Booster" 1972 Morton Thiokol http://ntrs.nasa.gov/archive/nasa/casi.ntrs.nasa.gov/19730021088_1973021088.pdf INTRODUCTION The feasibility of producing solid propellant rocket motors up to 260 in. in diameter has been demonstrated through a series of programs funded by the Air Force and by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. This study, therefore, was devoted to an in-depth analysis of baseline solid rocket motor (SRM) booster stages, suitable for application to a Space Shuttle Transportation System, and their attendant subsystems and costs. The study encompassed all facets of development and production of an SRM Stage, buildup of the stage with the orbiter at the launch site, and issues associated with total vehicle function, environmental effects, and booster recovery. Costs were given special emphasis, since this probably is the most critical issue in the selection of a booster type. Space Shuttle Booster concepts evaluated cover both the series and parallel burn (with the orbiter main engines) and include three separate classes of motor size. The study scope initially encompassed the 156 and 120 in. SRM's; however, late in the study, a 260 in. SRM configuration was considered. Table I summarizes the study scope, showing that the 156 in. stage was given special emphasis. Definition of SRM designs was based upon inputs from vehicle study contractors. DDT & E and production program costs were estimated in detail for the NASA mission model (440 operational launches) and for alternate launch rates building up to 40, 20, and 10 launches per year. In addition to evaluating selected baseline designs in detail, design and cost data were provided to all vehicle study contractors for their specific SRM configurations. Data for 29 different stage configurations were provided to vehicle contractors. Areas of uncertainty were evaluated, as was SRM recovery potential. SRM Stage recovery will result in a significant reduction in program costs. Design and cost data presented in the final report are for an SRM Stage associated with a large payload bay (15 x 60 ft) orbiter. SRM Stage data associated with small payload bay orbiters have been provided to vehicle contractors. SUMMARY SRM booster stages can be developed within the NASA time schedule (FMOF in March 1978) with minimum technical and cost risk. Required technology has been demonstrated. Areas of concern or uncertainty were evaluated and no problems were uncovered which would prevent selection of an SRM booster. The study shows that a segmented 156 in. SRM booster provides the lowest cost per flight for the parallel configuration. The 260 in. diameter motor provides a lower cost per flight for the series configuration. If a series configuration is to be considered further, a more detailed evaluation of the 156 in. versus 260 in. SRM booster should be conducted... also see: Space Shuttle Main Engine and Solid Rocket Booster MSFC 1980 http://ntrs.nasa.gov/archive/nasa/casi.ntrs.nasa.gov/19810007588_1981007588.pdf "External Tank: Legacy of Success" 2010 NASA (slides with cutaway ET) http://ntrs.nasa.gov/archive/nasa/casi.ntrs.nasa.gov/20100035696_2010037222.pdf

The main purpose was to install the S0 Truss segment, which forms the backbone of the truss structure on the station... Mission highlights The main purpose of STS-110 was to attach the S0 Truss segment to the International Space Station (ISS) to the Destiny Laboratory Module. It forms the backbone of the station to which the S1 and P1 truss segments were attached (on the following missions STS-112 and STS-113, respectively). STS-110 also delivered the Mobile Transporter (MT), which is an 885 kilograms (1,950 lb) (1,950 lb) assembly that glides down rails on the station integrated trusses. During the next shuttle mission, STS-111, the Mobile Base System (MBS) was mounted to the MT. This Mobile Servicing System (MSS) allows the Canadarm2 to travel down the length of the installed truss structure. Flight Day 1: Launch After a launch scrub on 4 April 2002 due to a hydrogen leak, Space Shuttle Atlantis successfully launched on 8 April 2002, from Launch Complex 39B. The countdown on 8 April encountered an unscheduled hold at the T-5 minute mark due to data dropouts in a backup Launch Processing System. The Launch Processing System team reloaded the required data and the countdown resumed. Liftoff occurred with 11 seconds remaining in the launch window. STS-110 was the first shuttle mission to feature the upgrade Block II main engines, which featured an "improved fuel pump...a stronger integral shaft/disk, and more robust bearings". The intent of the upgrade was to increase the flight capacity of the engines, while increasing reliability and safety. With the launch of Atlantis, mission specialist Jerry Ross became the first human to have traveled to space seven times... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_Truss_Structure ...S0 truss The S0 truss, (also called the Center Integrated Truss Assembly Starboard 0 Truss) forms the center backbone of the Space Station. It was attached on the top of the Destiny Laboratory Module during STS-110 in April 2002.

Travel Thru History Web Xtra - Space Shuttle Atlantis at Kennedy Space Center
For more information go to http://www.travelthruhistory.tv and http://www.kennedyspacecenter.com Until now only astronauts had seen how a space shuttle looked in orbit, but that's all changed because of the opening of space shuttle Atlantis to the public at Kennedy Space Center visitor complex in Florida. Viewers walk into the world's most comprehensive attraction dedicated to NASA's 30 year space shuttle program and space shuttle Atlantis which lets them walk up to the last shuttle to send astronauts to space. One that's displayed like no other. The kennedy space center visitor complex managers wanted to display the shuttle in a way it was seen in its native environment, space. That presented a big challenge, opening the payload bay doors and extending the robot arm. The space shuttle atlantis attraction also features more than 60 interactive displays and simulators, allowing guests to be the astronaut, practicing a space walk or operating a robot arm. There's also a full size replica of the hubble space telescope, last serviced by the actual shuttle that now sits right next to it.

Space Shuttles Discovery and Atlantis Switched Locations on March 9 at KSC
Shuttle Discovery moved from its processing hangar, Orbiter Processing Facility-1 (OPF-1) and parked while Atlantis was moved out of the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB) to take Discovery's place in OPF-1. The two shuttles passed each other while en route to their new locations. The move was scheduled to be the final time that Discovery will roll out of an OPF. Discovery will remain temporarily in the VAB until mid-April. Discovery is set to be transported atop a modified 747 jet to Dulles International Airport in Virginia on April 17. It then will be moved on April 19 to the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum Udvar-Hazy Center near Dulles for permanent public display. In OPF-1, Atlantis will undergo preparations for public display at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex and is scheduled to roll over to the complex in November. The visitor complex plans to open its display of Atlantis in July 2013.

The mission also featured two spacewalks, the first since 1985. Commander Steven R. Nagel Third spaceflight Pilot Kenneth D. Cameron First spaceflight Mission Specialist 1 Jerry L. Ross Third spaceflight Mission Specialist 2 Jay Apt First spaceflight Mission Specialist 3 Linda M. Godwin First spaceflight he STS-37 mission was successfully launched from launch pad 39B at 9:22:44AM EST on April 5, 1991 from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida... The primary payload, Gamma Ray Observatory (GRO), was deployed on flight day 3. GRO's high-gain antenna failed to deploy on command; it was finally freed and manually deployed by Ross and Apt during an unscheduled contingency space walk, the first since April 1985. The following day, the two astronauts performed first scheduled space walk since November 1985 to test means for astronauts to move themselves and equipment about while maintaining the then-planned Space Station Freedom. GRO science instruments were Burst and Transient Source Experiment (BATSE), Imaging Compton Telescope (COMPTEL), Energetic Gamma Ray Experiment Telescope (EGRET) and Oriented Scintillation Spectrometer Experiment (OSSE). GRO was the second of NASA's four Great Observatories. The Hubble Space Telescope, deployed during Mission STS-31 in April 1990, was the first. GRO was launched on a two-year mission to search for the high-energy celestial gamma ray emissions, which cannot penetrate Earth's atmosphere. At about 35,000 pounds, GRO was the heaviest satellite to be deployed into low-Earth orbit from the Shuttle. It was also designed to be the first satellite that could be refueled in orbit by Shuttle crews. Five months after deployment, NASA renamed the satellite the Arthur Holly Compton Gamma Ray Observatory, or Compton Observatory, after the Nobel Prize-winning physicist who did important work in gamma ray astronomy. The first U.S. extravehicular activity (EVA) or spacewalk since 1985 was performed by Mission Specialists Jerry L. Ross and Jay Apt after six failed attempts to deploy the satellite's high-gain antenna. Repeated commands by ground controllers at the Payload Operations Control Center, Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, MD, and maneuvering of Atlantis and its Remote Manipulator System (RMS) robot arm, as well as GRO's antenna dish, were to no avail in dislodging the boom. Ross and Apt were prepared for such a contingency, and Ross freed the antenna boom within 17 minutes after beginning the spacewalk. It was the first unscheduled contingency EVA since STS-51-D in April 1985. Deployment occurred about 18:35 EST, approximately 41⁄2 hours after it was scheduled. The following day, on 8 April 1991, Ross and Apt made the first scheduled EVA since Mission STS-61-B in November 1985. The spacewalk was to test methods of moving crew members and equipment around the future Space Station Freedom. One of the experiments was to evaluate manual, mechanical and electrical power methods of moving carts around the outside of large structures in space. Although all three methods worked, the astronauts reported that propelling the cart manually or hand-over-hand worked best. With both EVAs, Ross and Apt logged 10 hours and 49 minutes walking in space during STS-37. Crew members also reported success with secondary experiments. During one of the EVAs, a small rod from within the spacesuit punctured the seal of one of the astronauts' gloves (the name is undisclosed, but it was either Ross or Apt). However, the astronaut's hand partially sealed the hole, resulting in no detectable depressurization. In fact, the puncture was not noticed until after the spacewalkers were safely back inside Atlantis... Landing 11 April 1991, 06:55:29 PDT, Runway 33, Edwards Air Force Base, CA.

Space Shuttle Atlantis 1985-2011 Tribute. HD
Atlantis (OV-104) was delivered to Kennedy Space Center in April 1985. It lifted off on its maiden voyage on Oct. 3, 1985, on mission 51-J, the second dedicated Department of Defense flight. Later missions included the launch of the Galileo interplanetary probe to Jupiter on STS-34 in October 1989, and STS-37, with the Gamma Ray Observatory (GRO) as its primary payload, in April 1991. STS-135 on 28 June 2011: This is the final mission of Space Shuttle Atlantis and the last mission for the Space Shuttle Program. STS-135 will fly with a crew of 4 astronauts; the reduced crew size allows for rescue by regularly scheduled Soyuz missions if necessary. Atlantis is named after a two-masted sailing ship that was operated for the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute from 1930 to 1966.

Up, up and away! Atlantis rockets spaceward!
Atlantis, carrying the STS-122 crew and Columbus Laboratory, roared off the launch pad into the mid-afternoon sky to begin the 24th mission to the International Space Station. NASA astronaut Steve Frick commands a crew of six, including Pilot Alan Poindexter and Mission Specialists Leland Melvin, Rex Walheim, Stanley Love and the European Space Agency's Hans Schlegel and Leopold Eyharts. This is the first spaceflight for Poindexter, Love and Melvin. During the 11-day mission, the crew's prime objective is to attach the European Space Agency's Columbus Laboratory to the International Space Station, adding to the station's size and capabilities. Expedition 16 Flight Engineer Daniel Tani, who arrived at the station aboard Discovery in October, will return to Earth with the Atlantis crew as Eyharts takes his place on the station.

Space Shuttle: The Final Mission
In the last month of the space shuttle programme, Kevin Fong is granted extraordinary access to the astronauts and ground crew as they prepare for their final mission. He is in mission control as the astronauts go through their final launch simulation, and he flies with the last shuttle commander as he undertakes his last practice landing flight. Kevin also gains privileged access to the shuttle itself, visiting the lauchpad in the company of the astronaut who will guide the final flight from mission control. Kevin's journey takes him to the heart of NASA, when after 30 years of shuttle missions, they finally draw the curtain. As well as meeting the final astronauts, Kevin follows the specialist teams of men and women whose job it is to make sure the shuttle and its crew are as safe as they can possibly be. After experiencing the launch and being in mission control during the final mission, Kevin will be there on the tarmac at the Kennedy Space Centre when Atlantis returns from space for the last time, marking the end of an era in manned space flight.

Space Shuttle Atlantis Meets Some New Friends

Views: 702 C5Overflow
Natural Sound Space shuttle "Atlantis" is on its way to the international space station having been successfully launched on Friday morning at 7:45am local time (1245gmt) The shuttle blasted off from Florida's Kennedy Space Centre to start an eleven-day mission with a seven-member crew. NASA had worried for days that rain may delay the launch. But an approaching storm slowed down and stayed far enough offshore, allowing Atlantis to rise from its seaside pad with a roar at 8:45 a-m Eastern time. The shuttle made a four-minute window of opportunity to begin its mission - to furnish the growing international space station. Atlantis' 11-day voyage will be the first shuttle flight in almost four months and the start of what NASA hopes will be a rapid-fire series of missions to the space station. The seven astronauts and cosmonauts will be the first to float into the space station's new Russian-made control module, Zvezda. Its arrival one and a half months ago nearly doubled the size of the station, now a crowded three rooms. Commander Terrence Wilcutt and his crew will unload thousands of pounds of supplies from Atlantis and a Russian supply ship that is already docked at the space station. They also will install the toilet, set up the treadmill, lay cable and otherwise make the space station more habitable. The shuttle is scheduled to arrive at the space station early on Sunday morning. Until Zvezda's launch in July, more than two years late, space station construction was on hold. Despite the extra time, Zvezda failed to meet NASA safety standards for noise and micrometeoroid protection. Mufflers and shields eventually will be added; in the meantime, everyone inside, Atlantis' crew included, will have earplugs. Space shuttle Discovery must follow with the first piece of space station truss, or framework, before the first permanent residents can move in at the beginning of November. Altogether, NASA plans eight shuttle flights to the space station over the next year, beginning with Atlantis' mission. The high point will be the launch of the U-S lab Destiny in January. At that point, the international space station will be larger than Russia's Mir. That is also when controllers in Houston will take over day-to-day space station operations from their counterparts in Moscow. Russia is supposed to supply more cargo ships and more space station components, but because of the country's financial crisis, everything after this year is in question.

The Great Space Shuttle Gag
It was the best practical effects hoax of all time. How they fooled the world is truly astounding. To the Freemason space fakers, I must tip me cap to ya fellows, very crafty. How they did it, to make it seem as if the space shuttles columbia, endeavor, discovery, atlantis, and challenger were each one vehicle, that actually went to space and did “science”. Love my videos? I’ve 10 Patrons, while channels who validate the sincerity of NASA (paid 56 million dollars every day by us) have over thousands contributing to THEM to further spread the narrative of outer space science fiction. I'm actually helping you get smarter every minute, practically a lone voice in a cacophony of phonies. Share, and go to Patreon and show some love. https://www.patreon.com/UAPch UAP Channel presents more divine knowledge in pursuit of whatever is true but uncommon, with a little humor and music, great science, good sense, and a little non-sense.

10 AMAZING ROCKET BOOSTER Separation Videos!
A multistage (or multi-stage) rocket is a rocket that uses two or more stages, each of which contains its own engines and propellant. A tandem or serial stage is mounted on top of another stage; a parallel stage is attached alongside another stage. The result is effectively two or more rockets stacked on top of or attached next to each other. Taken together these are sometimes called a launch vehicle. Two-stage rockets are quite common, but rockets with as many as five separate stages have been successfully launched. By jettisoning stages when they run out of propellant, the mass of the remaining rocket is decreased. This staging allows the thrust of the remaining stages to more easily accelerate the rocket to its final speed and height. In serial or tandem staging schemes, the first stage is at the bottom and is usually the largest, the second stage and subsequent upper stages are above it, usually decreasing in size. In parallel staging schemes solid or liquid rocket boosters are used to assist with lift-off. These are sometimes referred to as "stage 0". In the typical case, the first-stage and booster engines fire to propel the entire rocket upwards. When the boosters run out of fuel, they are detached from the rest of the rocket (usually with some kind of small explosive charge) and fall away. The first stage then burns to completion and falls off. This leaves a smaller rocket, with the second stage on the bottom, which then fires. Known in rocketry circles as staging, this process is repeated until the final stage's motor burns to completion. In some cases with serial staging, the upper stage ignites before the separation- the interstage ring is designed with this in mind, and the thrust is used to help positively separate the two vehicles. Space launch is the earliest part of a flight that reaches space. Space launch involves liftoff, when a rocket or other space launch vehicle leaves the ground, floating ship or midair aircraft at the start of a flight. Liftoff is of two main types: rocket launch (the current conventional method), and non-rocket space launch (where other forms of propulsion are employed, including airbreathing jet engines or other kinds). Following are the rockets illustrated in the video : 10) Soyuz 9) Space Shuttle Atlantis 8) Delta IV Medium 7) Delta IV Medium 6) Space Shuttle atlantis 5) Titan IV - B 4) Space shuttle Atlantis 3) Space Shuttle Discovery 2) Titan - II 1) Space Shuttle Discovery

Final Space Shuttle Flight: Atlantis STS 135, July 8, 2011
Manned space flight enters a new era. No longer will American NASA owned shuttles transport humans to space. I was not prepared for the size and sound of this amazing spacecraft designed decades ago. Awe is the word you get, a rare sensation that you get only when you've seen something most humans never have. It's a similar sensation to observing rattlesnakes wrestling over territory, or a total eclipse. I would see a space shuttle fly again, but only on the back of a cargo plane, on it's way to it's final resting place. This conjured a true sense of disappointment in me, a surprising amount. I was in my backyard at the time, knowing it was about to fly out of my hometown of Sacramento. I saw it in the distance, only a mere glimpse as some neighbor's trees blocked the rest of the view, and that was it. I have a notion that was put in my mind by some who believe it would be more efficient to send us up into space with smaller, safer rockets, and that may be true.
