[P J Anderson; P Nussbaum; G Gustafson; Honeywell Inc. Solid State Electronics Division.; George C. Marshall Space Flight Center.]. To obtain a more vibration resistant pressure sensor for use on the Space Shuttle Main Engine, a proximity probe based, diaphragm type pressure sensor breadboard was developed.

A fiber optic proximity probe was selected as the sensor. In combination with existing electronics, a thermal stability evaluation of the entire probe system was : L.

Hoogenboom, G. Hull-Allen. Therefore, for each Space Shuttle flight, the SRB contributes over channels of telemetered data. Each Space Shuttle Main Engine (SSME) contributes 66 more channels of telemetered data, making a total of channels of telemetered data for the reusable propulsion system components of the Space Shuttle.

John C. Stennis Space Center was established to test the engines used to propel the Apollo spacecraft to the moon. The Space Shuttle’s Main Engine (SSME) was a highly innovative, high performance, liquid propelled rocket engine with a variable thrust and mixture ratio.

It was controlled electronically by an automatic system that could perform checkout, start, mainstage and shutdown functions/5(13). History of the Space Shuttle Main Engine.

Each Space Shuttle consisted of three Space Shuttle Main Engines. The three SSME's, in conjunction with the Solid Rocket Boosters, provided thrust to lift the Author: Samuel Serafini. The digital data base has also been distributed to NASA's Ames Research Center, Langley Research Center, and Marshall Space Flight Center, and to Rockwell International, the Space Shuttle prime contractor, to facilitate access to the data base by the analysts.

"Wings in Orbit" is an authoritative documentation of the many accomplishments of the NASA Space Shuttle Program. Starting with a foreword written by astronauts John Young and Robert Crippen, this compelling book provides accurate, authentic and easily understood accounts from NASA's best subject matter experts and external resources.

The book captures the passion of those who devoted their 4/5(1). A Space Shuttle Main Engine (SSME) hoist prepares to lift the first Block I engine to be installed in an orbiter into the number one position on Discovery while the spaceplane is being prepared for the STS mission in the high bay of Orbiter Processing Facility bay 2.

The cabin was filled with a pure oxygen atmosphere and pressurized greater than ambient pressure ( psi). Over the course of several hours, the oxygen permeated all materials in the cabin, which had been tested to the normal flight pressure of pure oxygen (5 psi).

When the fire began it spread rapidly. This fact, in combination with its high, throttleable thrust, led NASA to the decision to use the remaining engines from the space shuttle program for their new space launch system, with the first launch being scheduled for Metals and highly optimised superalloys enabled modern space exploration.

Yet, the possibilities to develop novel. STS On Ma the third launch attempt of STS was aborted at T-3 seconds when the Space Shuttle Main Engine (SSME) 3 oxidizer preburner purge pressure exceeded the maximum pressure.

The monitor detected that the combustion product pressure exceeded the 50 psi redline due to one of the five check valves in the purge system leaking. The Space Shuttle Program has also served as an inspiration for young people to study science, technology, engineering, and math, which is so important to the future of our nation.

The Space Shuttle is an engineering marvel perhaps only exceeded by the station itself. The shuttle was based on the technology of the s and early Size: 3MB. Both NASA and the U.S. scientific community are beneficiaries of this approach. The Space Shuttle is a domestically and internationally desired research facility because of its unique ability to provide on-orbit crew operations, rendezvous/retrieval, and payload provisions, such as power, telemetry, pointing and active cooling to payloads.
