Edition by David J. Cited by: 2. Nevertheless, the space shuttle launched a variety of commercial and military satellites, planetary probes to Venus and Jupiter, and three of the four NASA Great Observatories, including the pièce de résistance, the Hubble Space Telescope.

Only near the end was it able to demonstrate its intended purpose, building a space station/5(63). Get this from a library.

Shuttle to space station. [Brian J Knapp] -- Includes information on the Space Shuttle, Salyut and Skylab, the development and operating Mir, and the International Space Station.

Shuttle, Houston: My Life in the Center Seat of Mission Control by Paul Dye Hachette Books, Hardcover, pp., illus. ISBN US$ The recent SpaceX commercial crew mission offered a look at the future of mission control, or.

The book is written with a minimum of technical jargon and puts the reader on Discovery’s flight deck during some of the most important missions of the Space Shuttle era from satellite retrieval, to deployment of the Hubble Space Telescope, to construction of the International Space Station, and the Return to Flight after two tragic losses.

A loss-of-pressure alarm had gone off in the International Space Station. The Space Shuttle Atlantis was docked, and the immediate concern was how to localize and find the source of the problem in the huge orbiting complex. While the symptom was obvious—onboard atmosphere leaking into the vacuum of space—the diagnosis could be a faulty.

This comprehensive book about the Space Shuttle describes its origins, operations, and explorations, as well as discussing weightlessness, exploration, and outposts. The book also contains a Space Shuttle mission log, glossary, and bibliography.

Endeavour's story was not to end with 25 missions in space but with one final mission, miss her move from Florida to her new home in California. Atop the Shuttle Carrier Aircraft, Endeavour was flown piggyback across the United States for her final victory lap.

The Space Shuttle: Celebrating Thirty Years of NASA’s First Space Plane details this period, as well as the tragic loss of the shuttle Columbia in with great care and attention to detail. Looks at the operations of the International Space Station from the perspective of the Houston flight control team, under the leadership of NASA's flight directors, who authored the book.

The book provides insight into the vast amount of time and energy that these teams devote to the development, planning and integration of a mission before it is executed.

In the early s NASA shifted its focus from the Lunar missions to the Space Shuttle, and also space research. The NASA Administrator at the time moved the focus from a new space station to space laboratory for planned Space Shuttle. This would allow technologies for future space stations to be researched and harness the capabilities of the Space Shuttle for research.

His first book To Orbit and Back Again: How the Space Shuttle Flew in Space was born from a life-long passion for the space shuttle program.

While previous books about the space shuttle focused on its development and technology, this one looks at the shuttle in terms of employing its special characteristics in operational use. NASA and SpaceX plan to launch astronauts to the International Space Station on Wednesday.

It'll be the first time a new kind of spacecraft has launched astronauts into orbit since the space shuttle. Since the end of the space shuttle program inNASA has relied on the Russian Soyuz spacecraft to ferry its astronauts to and from the International Space Station (ISS).

This book will cover in great detail the newest construction and uses of the International Space Station. The new volume will continue on from the end of Creating the International Space Station by David Harland and John Catchpole (published in January by Springer Praxis), providing flight by flight details and relevant political and "behind the scenes" activities as are necessary to.
