It has been called the world's greatest piggyback ride: a space shuttle, atop a Boeing 747 jet aircraft. But this is no ordinary 747, this is the Shuttle Carrier Aircraft...the SCA. This specially modified jumbo jet was not only a taxi service for the shuttle, but also helped in the development of the shuttle itself. In 30 years of flying, the majestic image of a spacecraft joined to the SCA, became a symbol of American invention and ingenuity.
NASA's modified Boeing 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft (SCA), has come a long way since it first took to the air in the 1970s as an American Airlines passenger jumbo jet. Purchased by NASA from the airline in 1974 for $15,601,000 NASA 905 was modified by Boeing to first carry the prototype Enterprise for approach and landing tests and then later to ferry the space-worthy orbiters on transcontinental flights between their landing and launch sites. On 26 July 1972, NASA officially awarded the contract for construction for its very first Space Shuttle orbiter to Rockwell International (now Boeing). On 18 June 1977, a test-pilot crew boarded Enterprise at the MDD and rode in her crew module for the duration of the first Captive-Active Flight of the Space Shuttle Enterprise/SCA mated pair. For...
The temperature of space shuttle's jet nozzle is very hot. It can reach about 3.300 degrees celcius. Every metals in the earth are melt down at such temperatures. So, how did the aerospace engineers solve that complicated problem ? What kind of cooling system that they used ? The footage video belongs to BBC and i didn't have any copyright for that. Thanks for watching !! ----------------------------------mechanicalengboy.wordpress.com-----------------------------------
Scary Moment.!!

Space Shuttle Landing Atlantis Nasa HD video. Space shuttle Atlantis and 7 astronauts ended an 11 day journey to space. The landing was at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida November 27, 2009. The mission was named STS-129. It included 3 spacewalks and the installation of two platforms to the International Space Station's truss aka backbone. The platforms hold large spare parts to hold the station operations after the shuttles are retired. The shuttle astronauts delivered 30,000 pounds of replacement parts for systems that provide power to the international space station to keep it from overheating and to maintain a proper orientation in space. Nasa said this is Space Shuttle Atlantis final landing. http://www.nasa.gov
- - Created through FAIR USE for educational purposes - - STS-121 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 video. I made this for all the people who dreamed of seeing a launch in person but were never able to make the trip themselves. Using dozens of different video sources and countless audio versions of Shuttle launches I mixed this little clip together to mimic as close an experience to the real thing as I could. I know that the exact sequence of countdown events is somewhat compressed and not time-accurate but I was going more for the 'feel' of a high energy launch experience rather than a technical documentary. Throttle Up and SRB Separation are sounds as might be heard from onboard acoustic tran...

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. 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. 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-3...
NASA’s first Shuttle Carrier Aircraft, NASA 905, was acquired from American Airlines in 1974 and flew several aeronautic research projects at NASA Dryden before being modified by Boeing for the shuttle carrier role in 1976. It carried the shuttle prototype Enterprise, which was not designed for actual spaceflight. On the Approach and Landing Tests at Edwards in 1977 and also flew the majority of the shuttle ferry flights, including the final “Tour of California” ferry flight of the retired shuttle Endeavour to Los Angeles in September 2012. Endeavour is now on public display in the Samuel Oschin Pavilion at the California Science Center in Los Angeles. Shuttle Carrier N905NA was the largest aircraft carrier, used to ferry the retired Shuttles to their respective museums. It returned to ...

Space shuttle Discovery and seven astronauts ended a two-week journey of more than 6.2 million miles with a Tuesday morning landing at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Returning to Earth aboard the orbiter were STS-131 Commander Alan Poindexter, Pilot Jim Dutton, and Mission Specialists Stephanie Wilson, Rick Mastracchio, Clay Anderson, Dottie Metcalf-Lindenburger and Naoko Yamazaki of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency. The STS-131 mission to the International Space Station included three spacewalks, the installation of equipment outside the ISS, and the transfer of thousands of pounds of cargo and supplies from the orbiter's payload bay to various locations on the station.
On November 15, 1988, the world learned that the Soviet Union also had their own space shuttle. It had been secretly under development for well over a decade and it had cost the Soviets billions to build it. Several of the spacecraft were in various stages of construction. But the Soviet shuttle, named the Buran, would only ever launch once. Its development had largely been driven by the need to respond to the perceived military potential of the NASA Space Shuttle. When the Buran was first launched, the world speculated that it would be used to build Soviet space stations or even assemble spacecraft for a manned mars mission. But as the Soviet Union began to collapse, funding for the Buran program was limited and eventually cut off entirely. There’s no denying that the Buran looks very s...
Presented on Halloween (October 31st) at Stack Overflow’s 2016 Remote Meetup in Philadelphia. #PhillyCheeseStack If you want to try landing the shuttle for yourself for fun, try F-Sim http://www.f-sim.com/ (I have no affiliation... just a fan). Sorry about the autofocus (we disabled it in later talks). Me running around on stage didn't help. As always, send complaints to Steve. If you're interested in more details on reentry and landing, I also wrote an answer on Stack Exchange Aviation: http://aviation.stackexchange.com/questions/21981/how-does-the-space-shuttle-slow-down-on-the-re-entry-descent-and-landing/23889#23889 --- This was one of nine "Tiny Talks" given over three days at the meetup.

NASA has released the first ever up-close, high-definition video of Kennedy Space Center's solid rocket booster (SRB) recovery ships retrieving SRB segments from the Atlantic Ocean following a space shuttle launch. The unprecedented video is from the launch of the most recent shuttle mission, STS-133, Discovery's final flight, on Feb. 24. Following each space shuttle launch, crew members of Liberty Star and Freedom Star pull the spent boosters out of the ocean and return them to Hangar AF at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. Once they are processed, the boosters are transported to Utah, where they are refurbished and stored, if needed.
