Spacecraft Atmosphere

MA-007 Stratospheric Aerosol Measurement Another experiment directed toward developing instruments and techniques for use in future spacecraft. Small, solid particles called aerosols remain suspended in the atmosphere for days or longer in the troposphere (lower atmosphere) and well into the stratosphere (upper atmosphere). The aerosol-measurement experiment will investigate the photometer technique as a potential method for long-term satellite monitoring of atmospheric aerosols, while taking...

Usns Vanguard 1977 Voyager 1-2 Test Support Mission

The entire network is linked by the facilities of the NASA Communications Network (NASCOM), a global communications network established by NASA to provide operational ground communications for support of all spaceflight operations. The NASA Communications Network, one of the most extensive and sophisticated communications networks in existence, links all the STDN stations and NASA installations together. More than two million circuit miles covered by the network includes data and voice...

Apollo Menu

Everything from soup to nuts is an apt phrase to describe the 10-day food supply stowed in the command module food lockers. Each crewman selected his daily menu from the wide range of food items qualified for space flight in canned, thermostabilized pouch, thermostabilized can, rehydratable and natural forms. Breakfast, lunch and dinner menus repeat for mission days 1, 5 and 9 days 2, 6 and 10 days 3, 7 and 11 and days 4 and 8. Food items range from shrimp cocktail and steak to peanut butter...

Country Preparation Phasing And Constraints

Install launch vehicle batteries for first Soyuz launch. Launch within 5 days or replace batteries. Batteries can normally be replaced without launch delay. Load first Soyuz vehicle propellants, maximum launch delay is 24 hours, the allowable exposure limit of systems to liquid oxygen. Mobile Service Structure is moved from Pad B back to park site. Subsequent need for the MSS will cause launch delay. U.S.S.R. Mobile Service Structure retracted from first Soyuz. Subsequent need for the...

Astp Experiments

The 27 experiments to be conducted during the ASTP mission fall into three basic categories space sciences, life sciences and applications. Five of the space sciences experiments examine phenomena within the solar system and toward the outer fringes of our galaxy, while five other experiments look inward toward the Earth and its envelope of atmosphere. The space sciences-astronomy experiments are MA-048 Soft X-Ray to observe X-ray sources within and outside of our galaxy MA-083 Extreme...

Tracking And Communications

The ASTP mission presents an unprecedented challenge to the personnel of the Spaceflight Tracking and Data Network to provide the vital link between the Earth and the two orbiting spacecraft. To meet this challenge many changes have been made to the data acquisition, communications and command equipment at the far flung global network of stations. Much of this was accomplished during the interim between Skylab and the Apollo Soyuz programs. Flight control personnel will maintain contact with...

Crew Equipment

The survival kit is stowed in two rucksacks in the right-hand forward equipment bay of the command module above the docking module pilot couch. Contents of Rucksack 1 are two combination survival lights, one desalter kit, three pairs of sunglasses, one radio beacon, one spare radio beacon battery and spacecraft connector cable, one knife in sheath, three water containers, two containers of sun lotion, two utility knives, three survival blankets and one utility netting. Rucksack 2 contains one...
