Transcript: Fifty-two computers control the systems on the ISS. The same rocket fuel that helps launch the space shuttle is now being used to save lives— by destroying land mines. A flare device, using leftover fuel donated by NASA, is placed next to the uncovered land mine and ignited from a safe distance using a battery-triggered electric match. The End. Thank you. Space Shuttle Space Shuttle Program alone has generated more than 100 technology spinoffs Facts & Figures 30 years of missions First launch: April 12, 1981 (officially out of commission April 12, 2011) There were 135 missions in total http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/shuttle/shuttlemissions/archives/sts-51L.html http://www.nasa.govpdf/566250main_2011.07.05%20SHUTTLE%20ERA%20FACTS.pdf http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/shuttle/upgrades/index.html http://www.history.nasa.gov/shuttlehistory.html http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/station/behindscenes/index.html#.VBZaKECiokP http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/station/main/onthestation/facts_and_figures.html#.VBZaI0CiokP http://www.nasa.gov/centers/langley/news/factsheets/Contributions.html The ISS (International Space Station) and the Space Shuttle Image, Construction, & Purpose Artificial Heart International Space Station JAXA aims both to "Stimulate the curiosity of children, cultivating their spirits, and encouraging their passion to pursue craftsmanship" Some of the Technology Spinoffs. http://www.nasa.gov/externalflash/the_shuttle/ Lines of Computer Code: approximately 2.3 million The Space Shuttle(s): NASA Langley Research The ISS: the United states & Russia ESA, Canada, Japan, Brazil The Six Shuttles: Enterprise(never flew in space), Columbia, Challenger, Discovery, Endeavor and Atlantis Who? Infrared Camera Colombia: its 28th mission, during re-entry it broke apart Challenger: its 10th mission when a seal on one of its boosters failed and hot gas burned through the external tank, igniting the propellants and causing the shuttle to break up in the resulting explosion A sensitive infrared hand-held camera that observes the blazing plumes from the Shuttle also is capable of scanning for fires. During the brush fires that ravaged Malibu, CA in 1996, the camera was used to point out hot spots for firefighters. Humanity's first reusable space craft The Shuttle & the ISS the two most renowned manned space research advancements that have been used for the studying in and of space Land Mine Removal Device Power Generation: 8 solar arrays = 84 kilowatts - spans more than half an acre Links/Works Cited The technology used in space shuttle fuel pumps led to the development of a miniaturized ventricular assist pump by NASA and renowned heart surgeon Dr. Michael DeBakey The tiny pump -- 2-inches long, 1-inch in diameter and weighing less than four ounces has been successfully implanted into more than 20 people Manned Flight Space Research Life Saving Light The Image, Construction & Purpose Special lighting technology developed for plant growth experiments on space shuttle missions is being studied to treat brain tumors in children. Doctors are working with light emitting diodes in a treatment called photodynamic therapy, a form of chemotherapy, to kill cancerous tumors. every 90 minutes it completes orbit Space Shuttle Launch : STS-129 planned to provide transportation, maintenance, and act as a staging base for possible future missions to the Moon, Mars and asteroids The life of the shuttle program has cost $113.7 billion Fun & Not-so-fun Facts A total of 180 spacewalks; totaling over 1,130 hours, or approximately 47 days parts launched into space and put together, or shuttles would transfer pieces and parts Fun & Not-so-fun Facts Cntd. Enterprise Columbia Challenger Discovery Atlantis Endeavor It has a: pressurized living and working space approximately equivalent to the volume of a 747 jumbo-jet or a conventional five-bedroom house can accommodate up to seven astronauts a gymnasium, two bathrooms, and a bay window

Transcript: My glider went on average 29.6 feet in 1.46 seconds before i made a modification and after I made the modification the glider went on average of 29.3 feet in 1.7 seconds Masses..... Aerospace presentation By Joshua Swynenburg What was my modification? and how did it affect my glider what could I do different? What I could do different for next time is make my plane more stronger so when the plane hits the ground it will be harder to break and bend. 0 My hypothesis was that if I made my horizontal stabilizer a little smaller my glider would fly straighter. My hypothesis was correct. My glider past the minimum distance to be reached every time in a reasonable amount of time . My design.... I choose my design because: A cylinder for a fusilage because air can go through the glider making it basically float A wing that is an incline in the front because the air will go over the incline creating lift A triangular vertical stabilizer because it is a common efficient design, same reason for my horizontal stabilizer 19.99 My modification was cutting off 1/4 inch of the horizontal stabilizer. I did this because one side of the horizontal stabilizer was longer than the other. I did this hoping that my plane would fly straighter, and my hypothesis was correct! How far did my plane go Before my modification my glider weighed 2 grams after my modification my glider weighed 1.99 grams Conclusion

Transcript: By Aaron Brija A starter job will make you about $60,000 a year, and with about 10 years of experience you can make around $120,000 a year. Texas A&M University University of Texas at Arlington University of Texas at Austin Aerospace engineering is all about aircraft and spacecraft. Aerospace engineering is made up of two groups: aeronautical engineering (planes), and astronautical engineering (spacecraft). Salaries Schools With experience you move up to managing groups, but still participating in the project and guiding your co-workers. You can earn different level degrees for aerospace engineering. Advanced diploma, bachelor's, master's, and Ph.D. are levels of degrees you can earn. The better degree you have, usually, the better you are paid. Experience Required The End . Advancement Aerospace Engineering . What is that? Benefits Benefits usually include health and dental coverage, paid vacation days, basic life insurance, retirement benefits, and profit sharing.
