Hi, guys just browsing through the nasa website and came across this in the mission briefing materials about how the crew members would escape in the event of some danger and wow they blew me away, how planned they are and how the astronauts are training hard for that, see for yourself the first few images are that of the mission managers and the astronauts and it is from the middle that shows the brains they have, Iam literally speechless


See for yourself heres the link,

And imagine they are going to do that 350 miles above the atmosphere and one wrong move would result in disaster and even in the image itself it shows that the rescue ship would be at a clearance of 300 feet.


Amazing, Iam wondering how they planned that.


Your opinion on this please.

This will be the first time in quite a few years that two shuttles will be sitting on both shuttle launch pads simultaneously.

To me it seems that the greatest vulnerability on this flight, aside from the usual risks, would be to the astronauts on EVA. They're discussing the increased risk of orbital debris strikes from micrometeorite-sized objects - since HST is in a much higher orbit than ISS the debris environment is worse because there's less orbital drag up there to bring the garbage back down to earth. That means more paint flecks and other tiny specks that could hit an astronaut on EVA at dangerous relative speeds.

the last time 2 shuttles stood on the launchpads at the same time was way back towards the beginning of the shuttle program. And that was so Nasa could launch back to back missions if i remember right.

To bad it took losing a shuttle To force Nasa into this kind of backup

No the last time was when the construction of the international space station was started, one shuttle launched first to put unity and zarya into orbit and the next launched after a few weeks to attach zvezda and deliver the first crew to the ISS, and both shuttles were on launch pads at the same time.

i stand corrected its late here and didn't feel like looking at the launches to see which launched when. Thanks for the info.
