Interesting how it accelerates, decelerates, then accelerates and decelerates again.

I’m just trying to wrap my mind around the concept that those
things are tumbling through the air at Mach 4 when they’re cut
loose. Granted, it’s very, very thin air at that altitude, but
still…

And the landing was something else. Chute deployment at 400 MPH!
And the thing is still decelerating when it hits the ocean,
traveling almost as fast as a car on the freeway. I’d always
picted the SRB’s drifting lazily back to earth like a giant Estes
rocket. Nope. The chute pops at the last possible second to break
freefall, and the boosters come skidding to a near stop right
before slamming into the water at a speed that would kill a human!–

We went over to New York on Saturday May 5th.

While taxiing on JFK airport the Captain announced to have a look
through the right windows and catch a glimpse of
the shuttle still on top of the Boeing 747.

I just managed to get a view, very Impressive .
The combination was parked nose front into a hangar but was so high
it did not fit.
Most was still out.

I believe that the Shutlle will be on exhibition on or near the
aircraft carrier Intrepid.
The Concorde stood next to the Intrepid which my son and I visited.

I was kinda lucky in that I was one of the IBM technicians who had
responsibility for the on-site equipment at the 1984 New Orleans World
Fair. The shuttle came in on the back of a 747…totally cool to
see and, back then at least, eye-popping to see it up close at the
fair!On Mon, May 21, 2012 at 1:09 PM, Jos Raven mraven@home.nl wrote:

Wow… almost religious for a guy who followed such things as
a child. Shame the idiots in DC have removed the lofty goals
of humankind.

When I was in college in Abilene, I lived about 1/4 mile from the
back fence of Dyess AFB. One day, on the front page of the campus
newspaper is a picture of Columbia perched on top of a 747. The
caption read that the 747 had a minor malfunction in one of its
engines, and had to make an unscheduled landing at Dyess. It was
laid up several days waiting on spare parts. When I got hom, I
went to the end of my street, turned right, and drove right up to
the back fence. Sure enough, parked at the far end of the runway
was Columbia perched atop her 747 ferry plane. Closest I ever got
to a real shuttle. I definately plan to make another pilgrimmage
to DC to see Discovery in the Smithsonian, though.–

I was surprised that they jettison some nozzle hardware “after”
deploying the chutes. Would have thought that stuff would have
shredded them or at best damage, guess not.

What I find the most staggering is the amount of time it takes
to launch something into outer space. You plan for a decade -
and then it takes only a minute or two.–

I think they could do it a trifle quicker if they didn’t have to worry
about there being people on board Andrys…:-)On Mon, May 21, 2012 at 5:55 PM, Andrys Posthuma andrys_posthuma@hotmail.com wrote:

Good point, I was wondering about that too. At first I figured it was to save the parts, but of course they don’t float. So why go through all that work for ‘nothin’?

Yeh, you got a point. You plan for weeks to take your girlfriend on a date, dinner, movie, etc… then an orgasm takes twenty seconds.
Go figure.

Thing is, there’s no back-up warning system to actually tell
