STS-40 Columbia Lift Off

10  x  8  Colour Glossy NASA Photograph

NASA  No.  KSC-91PC-954

5 June 1991

The STS-40 Columbia, Orbiter Vehicle (OV) 102, riding atop the external tank, lifts off from the Cape's Launch Complex 39 Pad B at 9:24:51 a.m. EDT. Exhaust plumes billow from the solid rocket booster as the space plane heads for space.

The launch was originally set for May 22, 1991. The mission was postponed less than 48 hours before launch when it became known that a leaking liquid hydrogen transducer in the orbiter main propulsion system, which was removed and replaced during leak testing in 1990, had failed an analysis by the vendor. Engineers feared that one or more of the nine liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen transducers protruding into fuel and oxidizer lines could break off and be ingested by the engine turbo-pumps, causing engine failure.

STS-40 Columbia The SLS-1 And Earth

10  x  8  Colour Glossy NASA Photograph

NASA  No.  STS40-77-010

5 - 14 June 1991

The laboratory module in the cargo bay of the Space Shuttle Orbiter Columbia was photographed during the Spacelab Life Science-1 (SLS-1) mission. SLS-1 was the first Spacelab mission dedicated solely to life sciences. The main purpose of the SLS-1 mission was to study the mechanisms, magnitudes, and time courses of certain physiological changes that occur during space flight, to investigate the consequences of the body's adaptation to microgravity and readjustment to Earth's gravity, and to bring the benefits back home to Earth.

Earth observation taken onboard Atlantis, Orbiter Vehicle (OV) 104, is of an active auroral display. The multiple auroral arcs are indicative of magnetic sub-storms caused by the intervention of the solar wind with the Earth's magnetosphere. The red and green colours are caused by emissions from different atmospheric gases. This photograph was acquired while OV-104 was over the South Atlantic Ocean on revolution 65. Barely visible in the foreground is the dark payload bay, OV-104's left wing tip, the orbital manoeuvring system (OMS) pods, and the vertical tail.

STS-46 Atlantis, Orbiter Vehicle (OV) 104, Tethered Satellite System 1 (TSS-1) is mated to the satellite support assembly (SSA) during pre-flight processing at the Kennedy Space Center's Operations and Checkout Building. Technicians lower the TSS-1 satellite into the SSA which is mounted on an un-pressurized spacelab (SL) pallet. As the mating process proceeds the tether, shown attached to satellite and handled by technicians is pulled. The tether is a dielectric Kevlar cord roughly the diameter of a pencil lead. During TSS-1's first flight, the approximately 1,000-pound tethered satellite will be deployed some 12 miles from the orbiter to verify the system and for research purposes.
