Shuttle Endeavour has MPS prevalve issue
« on: 08/27/2006 03:42 AM »
Most of you know by now that I like to try and take the news past the "usual" - so rather than just leaving the Discovery delay article at the top of the news site, I'm publishing news that has been of great interest on L2...from two documents/presentations we acquired from a PRCB meeting this month.

The story is interesting, but as with these great PRCB documents we get hold of on L2, the diagrams and images are superb, for anyone that wishes to get deep down and dirty inside a Shuttle. In this case the MPS (Main Propulsion System).

Images to follow are a select few from the presentations, relating to the article.

You can download the presentations as pdfs and powerpoints if you're on L2 (one of several hundred we have on L2 now - I'm losing track as to how many).

Screenshots - the watermark is just to stop other media from using the screenshots themselves :)

That's a cool borescope device. It's tiny.

I'll see if I can get some more images of that.

The more the merrier, although we have those in the main presentation on L2. I'll see what I can copy across into here.

It's a great system at the back of the Shuttle. I don't think I even knew how clever it is, yet was designed over 30 years ago!
