    Template:Infobox spaceflight STS-8 was the eighth NASA Space Shuttle mission and the third flight of the Space Shuttle Challenger. It launched on Aug and landed on September 5, conducting the first night launch and night landing of the Space Shuttle program. It also carried the first African-American astronaut, Guion Bluford. The mission successfully achieved all of its planned. Hours later, engineers at the same Brigham City plant acknowledged that the space shuttle solid-fuel rocket booster -- critical to the recovery of the nation's space program -- had failed an.

    The safety of the booster rockets' performance at low temperatures had been questioned by Roger Boisjoly, a seal specialist at Thiokol, and Allan McDonald, the manager of the solid-rocket motor program. Boisjoly had directed a task force for a year to cope with evidence that . On 23 version h was released. This version of the program relaxes the constraint on launching an unstable rocket, based on user inputs. Certain types of water rockets may be unstable at launch, but quite stable in flight. An "Override" button nows allows the user to proceed to launch. On 19 version g was released.

      Because Morton Thiokol will be building the redesigned solid rocket motors until the Advanced Solid Rocket Motor plant is completed, any substantial delay or cancellation of the program "would mean that Morton Thiokol will build the rocket motors indefinitely," said Raab. several of these identifi ed areas of concern, including reusable solid rocket motor nozzle ply lifting and solid rocket booster hold-down post stud hang-up. After completion of the Space Shuttle review, the NESC Recur-ring Anomalies Review Team will begin to assess the International Space Station Program.

The Space Shuttle Solid Rocket Booster (Space Shuttle SRB) was the first solid-propellant rocket to be used for primary propulsion on a vehicle used for human spaceflight and provided the majority of the Space Shuttle's thrust during the first two minutes of flight.

After burnout, they were jettisoned and parachuted into the Atlantic Ocean where they were recovered, examined, refurbished, and Manufacturer: Thiokol, later ATK, United. Chapter Return to Flight: Richard H. Truly and the Recovery from the Challenger Accident 1.

Prepared for:. The redesign program has set a more rigorous standard for testing of material, component, and system function by includ- ing an extensive program of analysis; laboratory testing; substage motor tests; full-scaJe, short-duration motor tests; and, ultimately, five fulI-scale, full-duration tests of com.

STS was a Space Shuttle mission flown by Space Shuttle launch was originally scheduled for 31 Octoberbut was delayed to 19 November for several reasons.

Likewise, the landing, which was originally scheduled for 5 December, was pushed back to 7 December after bad weather prevented landing for two days. The mission was the longest Shuttle mission ever flown at 17. Suggested Citation:"7 Interim Report #7: September 9, "National Research Council.

The testing program to verify the SRM redesign and certify it was extensive, including laboratory and component tests, subscale tests, full-scale simulation tests and full-scale static test firings.

"All in all, the testing of the SRM redesign was a substantially greater effort than was conducted of the original design in preparation for STS The booster known as qualification motor, QM-1, is the largest solid rocket motor ever built and will be ignited on March 11 for a full duration static fire test by prime contractor Orbital ATK at.

The parachutes — the largest rocket parachutes ever manufactured — are designed to slow the rapid descent of the rocket's spent first-stage motor, permitting its recovery for use on future. A typical geometry of a solid rocket motor is illustrated in Figs.

andwhich show respectively a meridian cross section and a transverse cross section of one of these particular design shown in these figures does not reproduce exactly any rocket motor, but it is realistic in the sense that the geometry contains many of the essential features found in rocket by:   Can you tell us what the advanced solid rocket motor was compared to the redesigned solid rocket motor.

Thomas: There was a perception that there were still some safety issues with the redesigned RSRM because it had the same type joints, although they had extensive modifications. Moreover, there was a need for more Shuttle payload performance. The one I selected was a 29mm motor with a newton-impulse of To accommodate this larger motor, I completely redesigned my prototype rocket.

Once the thrust issue has been resolved, problems with stability arose. In order for a model rocket to be stable, the center of gravity (CG) has to be in front of the center of pressure (CP).

The redesigned solid rocket motor project was extremely exhausting, very challenging, but was also very rewarding.

A lot of good people worked very, very hard to make that project work. I later became project manager for an advanced solid rocket motor, which had some. A flexible, modular, fully automated, solid rocket motor performance prediction program has been developed.
