Assembly, Cable Cutter, Skylab. Creator: A.B. Chance Company

When Skylab was launched in May 1973, one of the solar arrays ripped off during launch and the other became jammed under a metal strap. The crew arrived at Skylab 11 days later, ready to free and extend the stuck solar array so it could produce electrical power for the space station. NASA had quickly gathered some tools for the astronauts to use to solve the unexpected problem. This cable cutter is a standard linesman's tool that was slightly modified for the task in space. It was probably used before the crew's launch to develop and practice procedures for cutting the metal strap to release the jammed solar array. The first Skylab crew carried such a cable cutter into orbit and used it successfully during an extravehicular activity or "spacewalk" to make the repair. Transferred from NASA to the Museum in 1973

Sunspots and solar prominences, 1973 Featured Image

Sunspots and solar prominences, 1973

Sunspots and solar prominences, 1973. Image from Skylab's solar telescope. Sunspots are relatively cool areas on the Sun's surface, the photosphere. Their temperature is about 3800 degrees Kelvin, as opposed to around 5800 degrees on the rest of the photosphere, and they can measure as much as 50, 000 kilometres across. The number of sunspots is greatest at the point in the cycle of solar activity known as the solar maximum, which occurs roughly every 11 years. They form when magnetic field lines below the surface become twisted and protrude through the photosphere. Sunspots are closely associated with the occurrence of solar flares, or prominences, massive eruptions of ionized hydrogen gas, often larger than the Earth, which arch away from the surface of the Sun. Some violent flares called Coronal Mass Ejections interact with the Earth's magnetic field and can disrupt radio communications and produce spectacular aurora displays
