Transcript: Space shuttles take/took astronauts into space, to complete missions. It carries astronauts and cargo to and from Earth. It carries about seven astronauts at a time. A rocket-launched spacecraft, able to land like an aircaft used to make repeated journeys between earth and earth orbit. Space Shuttles What is it used for spaceflight.nasa.gov Mission! The Apollo Program began before the first American was launched in to space. Many people feel that the Apollo program stands as man kind greatest technological achievement. They focused on Lunar Landing. Benefits Sources What is a Space Shuttles
Transcript: Parts of a Space Shuttle it had an orbiter that housed the astronauts in space so they could live in the airless place it had an external tank that housed fuel for the main engine it was the first spacecraft able to be reused after returning from space it can glide for a long time which is great for landing Remembered Shuttles The Challenger is the most remembered shuttles along with the Columbia.These two were destroyed and all crew members died.The challenger was going to send the first teacher to space.Since the accident there are multiple challenger learning center all over the country.These were built because we want to go farther than the boundaries. The space shuttle was invented by N.A.S.A to broaden human achievement and space research that was needed to help Americans study space closely and safely. It was started by the spacecraft STS-1. It also was to compete with the Soviet Union in the Space Race since the Soviets were first in getting humans into space.Finnaly it was used for getting astronauts to and from space Space Shuttle's History in the solid rocket boosters nose cap four booster separation motors frustum forward skirt solid rocket motor forward segment, forward center segment, and aft center segment external tank attach ring four booster separation motors solid rocket motor aft skirt nozzle extension in the external tank liquid oxygen tank inter tank lox feed line bellows bipod assembly liquid hydrogen tank in the orbiter crew cabin payload bay doors orbital maneuver system pod main engines Reasons to be invented Space Shuttles

Transcript: Challenger Space Shuttle Disaster How dangerous are space shuttles? How long does it take for a space shuttle to lift off and be in space? THANK YOU FOR WATCHING MY AWESOME PREZI!!! p.s: MR. ALI CAN YOU PLEASE GIVE ME AN A++++++++++++ Sally Ride was the first American in space. Sally Kristen Ride (May 26, 1951 – July 23, 2012) was an American physicist and astronaut. Born in Los Angeles, she joined NASA in 1978 and became the first American woman in space in 1983. She remains the youngest American astronaut to have traveled to space, having done so at the age of 32. After flying twice on the Orbiter Challenger, she left NASA in 1987. She worked for two years at Stanford University's Center for International Security and Arms Control, then at the University of California, San Diego as a professor of physics, primarily researching nonlinear optics and Thomson scattering. She served on the committees that investigated the Challenger and Columbia space shuttle disasters, the only person to participate on both. Ride died of pancreatic cancer on July 23, 2012 (aged 61). The solid-rocket boosters used on spacecraft like the Space Shuttle are examples of rockets. Unlike airplane jet engines, which take in air as they fly through the sky, space rockets have to carry their own oxygen supplies (oxidizers) with them because there is no air in space and with no air they couldn’t possibly get to space and fly in space. It takes a space shuttle approximately 8 – 9 minutes to get to orbit and if you think about it, that is pretty quick for a space shuttle launch. Once it gets up in the air and out into space there is no return for at least another 24 hrs (1 day). For a successful return to earth return to earth/landing the space shuttle a lot of things have to go right. First the orbiter must be maneuverer in the right positon, this is crucial for a safe landing. When a mission is finished and the shuttle is halfway around the world from the landing site (Kennedy Space Centre, Edwards Air Force Base Florida), mission control gives the command to come home, which prompts the crew to close the cargo bay doors and all doors in general. When the orbiter is tail first, the crew fires the OMS engines to slow the orbiter down and fall back to Earth; it will take about 25 minutes before the shuttle reaches the upper atmosphere. Space Shuttles By James Barker The evolution of the rocket has made it an indispensable tool in the exploration of space. There are some dangers though. On January 28, 1986, the challenger space shuttle had its fatal explosion. The mission’s launch from Kennedy Space Centre at Cape Canaveral, Florida, was delayed for six days due to weather and technical problems. The morning of January 28 was unusually cold, and engineers warned their superiors those certain components, particularly the rubber O-rings that sealed the joints of the shuttle’s solid rocket boosters were vulnerable to failure at low temperatures. However, these warnings went unheeded, and at 11:39 a.m. Challenger lifted off. Seventy-three seconds later, hundreds on the ground, including the families of McAuliffe and the other astronauts on board, stared in disbelief as the shuttle exploded in a forking plume of smoke and fire. Millions more watched the wrenching tragedy unfold on live television. Within instants, the spacecraft broke apart and plunged into the ocean, killing its entire crew, traumatizing the nation and throwing NASA’s shuttle program into the dumps. Who Was the First American Woman in Space? How does a Space Shuttle Come Back to Earth? One of the most dangerous places for an astronaut is the launch and re-entry of their rocket. A lot of rocket fuel for reaction mass and energy is required to attain even a low Earth orbit. The spacecraft needs to get up to least 7 miles per second or 25 000 miles per hour, which is a very scary and dangerous speed. Proof of such a thing is the Challenger disaster of 1986 when a Space Shuttle blew apart 73 seconds into its launch costing the lives of all seven members of its crew. Space shuttles were the most fatal space orbiter ever built How does a space shuttle work?

Transcript: What goes on the inside of space shuttles? The tiles are made from 90% oxygen to stop the tiles themself from getting dented or damaged. This is because oxygen is light but won't change shape when it is compressed because when it is compressed, it is more dense. Tiles Space shuttle tiles are made of 90% air (oxygen) and 10% silicon fibre. Silicon fibre is very good for resisting the heat from the Earths atmosphere and this stops the shuttle exploding or catching fire. But why use oxygen??? Space shuttles have a lot of insulation in order to stop the heat from the atmosphere getting too hot inside. How Space Shuttles are insulated... Topic 7 Oxygen Topic 5 Topic 6 Topic 4
