Backpacking Featured Space Walk Print


Mission Specialist Bruce McCandless II ventured further away from the confines and safety of his ship than any previous astronaut ever has. This space first was made possible by the Manned Manuevering Unit or MMU, a nitrogen jet propelled backpack. After a series of test maneuvers inside and above Challenger's payload bay, McCandless went "free-flying" to a distance of 320 feet away from the Orbiter. The MMU is controled by joy sticks positioned at the end of the arm rests. Moving the joy sticks left or right or by pulling them fires nitrogen jet thrusters propelling McCandless in any direction he chooses. A still camera is mounted on the upper right portion of the MMU. This stunning view shows McCandless with the MMU out there amongst the black and blue of Earth and space


Hubble servicing Featured Space Walk Print

Hubble servicing

Hubble Telescope servicing. Astronauts perform an extravehicular activity (EVA or spacewalk) during a space shuttle mission to service the Hubble Space Telescope (HST). Hubble's solar arrays can be clearly seen at centre left & right. Astronauts Steven Smith and John Grunsfeld are replacing the gyroscopes which control HST's pointing mechanism. The astronauts are strapped to the shuttle's robo- tic arm, known as the remote manipulator system (RMS). This image was taken from the Discovery shuttle's cargo bay during mission STS-103 (19-27 December 1999). Replacing the HST's computer was also part of the servicing. This mission was the 3rd to service the HST since its launch in 1990


Astronaut van Hoften in Shuttle cargo bay, 41-C Featured Space Walk Print

Astronaut van Hoften in Shuttle cargo bay, 41-C

Satellite repair in space. Astronaut James van Hoften makes his way back to the airlock of Shuttle Challenger having helped repair the Solar Maximum Mission (SMM) satellite. The SMM can be seen protruding from the far end of the cargo bay. This mission, 41-C, was the first in which a satellite was successfully retrieved from orbit, repaired and then redeployed. This was needed to free a jammed communications antenna without which the satellite was useless. During the same mission of 6-12 April 1984, the Long Duration Exposure Facility (LDEF) satellite was deployed. Van Hoften is wearing a Manned Manoeuvering Unit (MMU) back- pack, used here for the first time in orbit
