    14:36 By 3.5 minutes into the flight it has reached a point where it could safely make it down to emergency landing sites in Europe should there be a problem or engine failure... just how fast that ship is traveling. I understand there would be additional time in the glide back down but still, just an incredible flight.

    I can't research your last statement because it makes you sound like a crazy person. The Space Station is a swimming pool and they're being puled around by scuba divers during the interview to make it look like they're in space? How would that even work? Anyways, I have spent my whole life consuming about all of the information about space science I could because I'm a giant nerd. I even made my mom get up in the middle of the night to take me to the science department of the local university in 1989 so I could watch a live feed of the processing of Voyager 2's closest approach images to Neptune and see the pictures. There is no lack of research on my end. On your end, I see you cherry picking 3 out of context sentences from various interviews and ignoring 70 years of actual evidence with a flippant "it must be fake". You're mind does not seem as open as you claim. Clearly this is a conversation where no one is likely to change their mind based on the other persons point of view.

  7. johndrocket

    johndrocket2 days ago

    +Gooblat Heckwagon Well, take a breath before you reply and do research. I leave it open that I could be wrong, but the evidence is leading me into this direction.

  8. Gooblat Heckwagon

    Well, that's interesting. BS, but interesting.

  9. johndrocket

    johndrocket2 days ago

    Gooblat Heckwagon It's evident you never checked this out for yourself because if you did then you would see astronauts in their space station (swimming pools) being pulled around by scuba divers to make it look like they're in space. They are blocked by cgi and camera work. But they didn't block them out in all instances and it is very obvious because you can at times see hands and the bodies pulling them around. The satellites that give us gps and what not do not have to leave LEO. The moon rocks and well as space pics can be faked and done over EASILY. Have you ever seen what the other planets looked through a telescope? They look nothing like Jupiter or Saturn. The Chinese and governments do the same. They can leave LEO either. The world is run by the elites and they're agenda, which is to make money and be able to control us. What motivates me is my beliefs, just like you. You people that follow all the BS without doing any research are weird. It's one thing if you have done research, but it's another if you haven't. First, do some research before you just tell me what I can already watch on mainstream media. Blind sheep like you is what takes the world down.

    The space age was symbol of America's optimal capability.

Is anyone aware that the space shuttle program carried the modules and spare parts that built the international space station?

    Negative return means if the crew has to abort they are to far out to return to KSC. They would enter another abort mode to go over seas or abort to orbit.

    Can anyone help me with the answer? Why can we use "mach number" when space shuttle at the altitude of 350000 fts ? At that height, we are in the thin air. If the air is thin, how the sound transmission? ( I mean the mediator is only a little. ) However, the mach number is the ratio of flow velocity past a boundary to the local speed of sound. How do we get a local speed of sound when we are in the situation of almost vacuum?

  38. 蔡政廷

    蔡政廷8 days ago

    +002o Ok, really thanks for answer my question:)

  39. 002o

    002o8 days ago

    They use Mach's number probably just for comparison, for imagination, they use it as if an object travels at sea level altitude. Because Mach 1 at sea level is 340 m/s, but Mach 1 at 11 km is 295 m/ s. (Because speed of sound depends on temperature.) But I also do not see any deeper logic in it why they use it...

    Hello

  42. Grenherb

    Grenherb18 days ago

    so it's around 65 miles in high altitude, but Technically, objects in low-Earth orbit are at an altitude of between 160 to 2,000 km (99 to 1200 mi) above the Earth’s surface. Any object below this altitude will being to suffer from orbital decay and will rapidly descend into the atmosphere, either burning up or crashing on the surface. Objects at this altitude also have an orbital period (i.e. the time it will take them to orbit the Earth once) of between 88 and 127 minutes. Objects that are in a low-Earth orbit are subject to atmospheric drag since they are still within the upper layers of Earth’s atmosphere - specifically the thermosphere (80 - 500 km; 50 - 310 mi), theremopause (500-1000 km; 310-620 mi), and the exosphere (1000 km; 620 mi, and beyond). The higher the object’s orbit, the lower the 1atmospheric density and drag. However, beyond 1000 km (620 mi), objects will be subject to Earth’s Van Allen Radiation Belts - a zone of charged particles that extends to a distance of 60,000 km from the Earth’s surface. In these belts, solar wind and cosmic rays have been trapped by Earth’s magnetic field, leading to varying levels of radiation. Hence why missions to LEO aim for attitudes between 160 to 1000 km (99 to 620 mi). think there missing another 100-200 miles to get to space.

UPON FUNDING APPROVAL FROM THE US CONGRESS, NASA IS NOW AT A CROSSROADS, GENERALLY, THEY HAVE A VERY GOOD SHUTTLE RECORD W/TWO TRAGIC EXCEPTIONS, THE SHUTTLES CHALLENGER IN JANUARY 1986 & THE SHUTTLE COLUMBIA DISASTER IN 2003 OF WHICH A SUITABLE RESPECTFUL AND SOLEMN MEMORIAL HAS BEEN RECENTLY DEBUTED AT THE NEWLY RESIGNED KENNEDY SPACE CENTER IN CENTRAL FLORIDA. A MReporter VIDEO IS ONLINE RE: THE NEW MEMORIAL, THE SILENCE OF IT IS DEAFENING! SPACE EXPLORATION AS EXPRESSED BY THE LATE FORMER PRESIDENT REAGAN, IS NOT FOR THE WEAK, BUT FOR THE STRONG ONLY.

    Because you don't understand that if you fly straight up, you will fall back to earth... They need to go on orbit, not in space.

  127. FromNorway

    FromNorway2 months ago

    Because you need _sideways_ velocity to get into orbit. If the shuttle continued straight up, it would fall back down once the engines stopped unless it had reached escape velocity first, but the shuttle was unable to do that. _Newton's cannonball_ gives an idea of how orbits work: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newton%27s_cannonball

    How sad to have thrown off these beautiful machines that were space shuttles! they could still render a lot of services; before placing them in museums, they could be improved even if they waited a few years to test new alloys such as titanium / chrome and modify the protection of the external tank to no longer use this foam too dangerous for the integrity of the wings. In this video we see at T + 3 min 52 sec, a piece of tank crashing into the tiles of the shuttle and fortunately miss the right wing! Shuttle is still the best, the best to send men and cargo to the ISS.

    Was that a sonic boom in the background around 11:40 seconds? I don't remember hearing one on the ground.

    I was there that February evening watching that launch. I can tell you this much, after the previous attempt to launch was a no-go and the fact we drove 12 hours to see this, I was extremely happy to see the launch. If I remember correctly it came down to the very last second in the launch window. Having watched the launch I was ecstatic and totally depressed realizing I would never be able to see another launch. Truly amazing stuff.

    Can somebody tell me how the shuttle went from 340,000 ft at ET separation to 1,200,000 ft for rendezvous with ISS without any rockets to carry it higher up?

    Thanks! I recently got Kerbal Space Program so I understand most of what you said on a visual plane now. Thanks for the extra information!

    Towards the end of the main engine burn (18:55 in the video) the shuttle started climbing again after having lost some altitude for a while. When the engines were shut down, the shuttle had enough vertical velocity (several hundred ft/sec) to continue the climb for a while without any thrust. When it reached its highest point, two smaller engines gave the shuttle the little extra speed it needed (about +1%) to maintain that altitude instead of entering the atmosphere again on the other side of the Earth. These engines, OMS, got their fuel from internal tanks in the tail section of the shuttle. They were also used to change orbit during the mission and for the braking manoeuvre needed to lower the orbit into the atmosphere before landing.

    what are the little white dots running across the screen from 18:44 on. Is it caused by radiation?

    Most likely. Charged particles aren't nice to sensitive electronics.
