Author Topic: One year on - Report notes superb performance of STS-135's SRBs  (Read 5179 times)

Epic Chris Gebhardt article.

Rather than rehashing about the launch, this is a new IFA-style angle on the SRB performance (a good angle for several reasons, not least because the boosters are living on with new vehicles).

Excellent article, and I love to see the orbiters around for a bit again  :)

Links to L2 always lead me to digging in again and reading a few hundred pages just on one part of a launch vehicle - amazing.

Great read. Going to be many years before we get back to this, and never at all as far as the capability.

This level of detail is exactly what this site is all about. Thanks!

And special thanks for the photo showing a spaceplane headed for orbital velocity!

Such a good article, and great use of images.

Now also going through the IFA and SRB sections on L2. Some great items in there.
