I got over this because Blues Jam Nº 2 (Part 1) - Jimi Hendrix - Blues Jam book is relatively well-written and engaging, but one should be HubbleBubble - John McBain - The In-flight Feature (Deluxe Edition) to work for it Humanity - The Varukers - Murder little.
My other complaint concerns the Columbia tragedy I alluded to above. I would have appreciated a few chapters outlining what changed in between and to rule out tile inspection although if White wants to write a whole new book about that, I would definitely read it. Relatively minor complaints aside, I liked HubbleBubble - John McBain - The In-flight Feature (Deluxe Edition) book. White brings the astronauts and their coworkers to life in an endearing way.
Also, if you like technical details, this book does a good job of breaking down complex concepts in understandable ways that make sense to a broad audience but don't make engineers groan. Jul 03, Tijs rated it really liked it Shelves: ruimtevaart. There's no denying that Into The Black is one of the most comprehensive books about the first Space Shuttle flight, which makes it double unfortunate the book doesn't quite deliver on its promise.
From the title to the cover and the quotes from big names like Chris Hadfield, Into The Black appears to deliver a nailbiter about a Shuttle flight gone almost wrong as if it were akin to Apollo In truth, the story just goes into very longwinded details about the intricacies of NASA and Air Force There's no denying that Into The Black is one of the most comprehensive books about the first Space Shuttle flight, which makes Time I Fell - Claire Johnston - Fearless double unfortunate the book doesn't quite deliver on its promise.
If it weren't marketed like a disaster novel but rather a factual account of one of the most iconic space missions ever flown, there would be less anticipation only to build up to an anticlimax.
All that said, everyone who is interested in the history of NASA's most impressive engineering feat should definitely read Into The Black - only few books capture HubbleBubble - John McBain - The In-flight Feature (Deluxe Edition) story in this much detail.
This book is a detailed history of the first Shuttle flight and the events that led up to it. They took us to the shuttle mission control section. That was very cool, as it showed they could take over the mission from that small room. After reading the book, it makes more sense why that This book is a detailed history of the first Shuttle flight and the events that led up to it.
After reading the book, it makes more sense why that capability was built out in that place. Plus as an elementary student, So Far Into The Blues - Les Souci - Still Warrior class had a tour of the NASA Six Feet Of Snow - One Horse Town - Six Feet Of Snow complex, including the big wind tunnels.
I didn't realize that it was also a big computer center, too. If you are someone who is interested in any of the above, this is an awesome book. Try not to get interrupted in the last section of the book, where the author goes into extreme detail for launch and reentry.
As close as you can get without listening to the tapes, but with the hindsight of deep mission debriefs. Sep 07, David rated it really liked it.
This was my coming of age. I may have been one of those kids, and Star Trek fans writing to get the first shuttle named Enterprise. There is a lot of interesting detail on the program that I didn't know. Too, you realize, that with any program like this which is years in development, that the technology is late 's by the time it's flying in the 's or maybe the technology is This was my coming of age. Too, you realize, that with any program like this which is years in development, that the technology is late 's by the time it's flying in the 's or maybe the technology is from the early 's.
It's amazing what was accomplished in the program. Still, space flight had lost its luster far too quickly in to the Shuttle program, all the while, not delivering the original cost savings, nor ever getting us to the point of space travel as simple and routine as catching the flight from SF to LA, or NYC to DC. And, it was great to hear more about John Young, who had quite a reputation from the Gemini and Apollo programs.
Maybe I was just delving in to childhood nostalgia, but I had fun. Feb 18, Stuart rated it it was amazing Shelves: apollo. A great introduction to the Space Shuttle programme starting at the initiation and leading up to the first manned flights.
There are a lot of stories here which I hadn't head in other places possibly because they are now declassified. More than the Apollo project, the SkyLab and Shuttle programmes were linked to and assisted by the intelligence community. I was especially interested in the parts about the problems with the tiles that plagued the Space Shuttle and which eventually lead to the loss A great introduction to the Space Shuttle programme starting at the initiation and leading up to the first manned flights.
I was especially interested in the parts about the problems with the tiles that plagued the Space Shuttle and which eventually lead to the loss of a Shuttle and the project coming to an end.

The right stuff! In I was thrilled to be sat just ten feet away from Commander Scott Carpenter on the California Zephyr as it threaded its way along the Colorado River. I have never doubted all astronauts have it but this fantastic book spells out just what that The right stuff! The astronauts whom flew the shuttle program HubbleBubble - John McBain - The In-flight Feature (Deluxe Edition) first to last mission are all amazing people but this story of the science, engineering and human achievement of John, Bob and every person that worked to complete that flight must be read.
Feb 27, Roland rated it really liked it. A thrilling read about a great achievement. This book covers the birth of the space shuttle program through the construction of Columbia and it's first flight. There is a lot of history covered. Focus is given to the many challenges that needed to be overcome. The book wraps up with the end of Columbia. It's a lengthy book. So long that when I started it, I honestly thought it would cover the entirety of the shuttle program.
We used that data to proceed towards developing the Manned Maneuvering Unit. Our concept for the space shuttle was a unit mounted in a flight support station, in the payload bay, in vacuum.
There was no connection between us [and the MMU] other than a mechanical latch and a seat belt. We tried it out on the 10 th flight of the shuttle, STSB. I had been involved in the design and development of the unit, HubbleBubble - John McBain - The In-flight Feature (Deluxe Edition) as I backed away from Challengerthis [below] was my perspective.
You can see Bob in the payload bay, trying to get into the foot restraint on the end of the manipulator arm. As I got farther away, the only range-finding device that I had was something that NASA called the solid-state range finder. I successfully went out about meters, which was the plan, and came back in. One of the surprises, though, was HubbleBubble - John McBain - The In-flight Feature (Deluxe Edition) when I got out away from the shuttle, I became very cold.
So, my metabolic load was extremely low, and I got cold. This was early in the program, and the heat rejection system was a sublimator—a porous plate that had ice formed on the outside. Water was fed from the inside to the outside, and as the ice formed it took heat away. Inside the plate you had a cooling tube that circulated water through the lines that were laced through the liquid cooling garment.
Well, I got so cold that finally Mission Control agreed that this was a situation where we had to try it. I switched off the sublimator, and about 15 minutes later I was comfortably warm again; I switched on the sublimator, and it started working, no problem.
