Powered Flight Deck of the Space Shuttle Endeavour photos - 0 views

  •  
    The most complex machine ever built by mankind. Check it out. Just think, the commander of the shuttle must know ever knob, dial and gauge and know how they all interact. Mind bending! After all that they must dead-stick the landing from space at enormous speeds, hit the spot and no go-arounds. One shot only. Interior Photos of Endeavour These photos capture the Flight Deck (cockpit) of the Space Shuttle Endeavour, fully powered for one of the final times. Just a few weeks later, at 9:58am EDT on May 11, Endeavour was powered down for the final time in history. It was the last of the three space shuttles to have power. Below, other views show the mid-deck, gutted of its lockers and storage areas, and three final photos show the white room entrance in the Orbiter Processing Facility, signed by thousands over the years.

    "Personal observations on the reliability of the Shuttle by R. P. Feynman Introduction It appears that there are enormous differences of opinion as to the probability of a failure with loss of vehicle and of human life. The estimates range from roughly 1 in 100 to 1 in 100,000. The higher figures come from the working engineers, and the very low figures from management. What are the causes and consequences of this lack of agreement? Since 1 part in 100,000 would imply that one could put a Shuttle up each day for 300 years expecting to lose only one, we could properly ask "What is the cause of management's fantastic faith in the machinery?""

    This is really time lapse photography as the journey to the launch pad takes 5-7 hours and it is sped up to only a few minutes.
