In this STS-61B onboard photo, astronaut Jerry Ross, perched on the Manipulator Foot Restraint, approaches the Assembly Concept for Construction of Erectable Space Structure (ACCESS) experiment. The experiment was one of two designed to test the structural assembly concepts for suitability as the framework for larger space structures, and to identify ways to improve the productivity of space construction.

Space shuttle Atlantis lifts off of Launch Pad 39B on the STS-37 mission. The primary payload, Gamma Ray Observatory (GRO), was deployed on flight day three of the mission. The GRO high-gain antenna failed to deploy on command but was finally freed and manually deployed by Mission Specialists Jerry L. Ross and Jay Apt during an unscheduled contingency space walk, the first since April 1985. Photo credit: NASA/KSC April 5, 1991

Space shuttle Atlantis, OV-104, was delivered to NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, in April of 1985. Mission STS-51J was the first flight of space shuttle Atlantis, launching Oct. 3, 1985 to deliver a communications satellite for the Department of Defense. Studies also were conducted by the crew on space motion sickness, cardiovascular deconditioning, muscle loss, changes in coordination, balance strategies, and changes in the body's biochemistry. Atlantis landed at Edwards Air Force Base...

The Compton Gamma-Ray Observatory is released from space shuttle Atlantis' robotic arm during the STS-35 mission. For nearly nine years, the observatory's Burst and Transient Source Experiment kept an unblinking watch on the universe to alert scientists to the invisible, mysterious gamma-ray bursts that had puzzled them for decades. By studying gamma-rays from objects like black holes, pulsars, quasars, neutron stars, and other exotic objects, scientists discovered clues to the birth,...

The newest addition to the Space Shuttle orbiter fleet, Endeavour, arrives at KSC atop the 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft on May 7. OV-105 will be demated from the Boeing aircraft, and towed to the Vehicle Assembly Building for installation of several major flight components. Next step will be a lengthy stay in the Orbiter Processing Facility for a rigorous series of first flow tests. Endeavour is scheduled to lift off on its maiden space flight in 1992.

The Space Shuttle Endeavour lifts off from launch Pad 39A on April 9, 1994, at 7:05 a.m. EDT to begin the nine-day STS-59/Space Radar Laboratory mission. The mission countdown clock also can be seen, giving the time into the mission after liftoff. The STS-59 mission is scheduled to end with a landing at KSC's Shuttle Landing Facility.

Astronaut Bruce McCandless II, STS 41-B mission specialist, participates in a historical spacewalk. He is pictured a few meters away from the cabin of the Earth-orbiting Space Shuttle Challenger. This spacewalk represented the first use of a nitrogen-propelled, hand-controlled device called the Manned Maneuvering Unit (MMU), which allows for much greater mobility than that afforded previous space walkers who had to use restrictive tethers.

The Space Shuttle Challenger, atop a mobile launch platform, slowly moves through the Florida fog to Launch Pad 39A in preparation for its first liftoff on the STS-6 mission. The fully assembled Shuttle, weighting 12,000 pounds less than predecessor Columbia, completed the trip to the pad in just over six hours on Nov. 30, 1982. Image Credit: NASA

This tribute to space shuttle Atlantis, OV-104, hangs in Firing Room 4 of the Launch Control Center at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. It features, Atlantis soaring above Earth. Threaded through the design are the mission patches for each of Atlantis' flights. Atlantis' accomplishments include seven missions to the Russian space station Mir and several assembly, construction and resupply missions to the International Space Station. Atlantis also flew the last Hubble Space Telescope...

As a tribute to NASA's Space Shuttle Program, artist Brian Basset created this commemorative drawing depicting his characters, Red and Rover, racing alongside the space shuttle as it lands for the final time later this year. In 2004, Basset was honored with a one-man show of his space-themed comic strips at NASA Headquarters in Washington, D.C. On July 26, 2005, an original drawing by Basset commemorating America's return to flight launched aboard shuttle Discovery on the STS-114 mission....

A morning sky drenched in vibrant color welcomes the Space Shuttle Endeavour as it rolls out to Launch Pad 39A today. Endeavour is being readied for the STS-61 mission, targeted for liftoff in early December. During the 11-day flight, a seven-member crew will carry out the first servicing of the Hubble Space Telescope.

The space shuttle Endeavour orbiter tribute, or OV-105, hangs in Firing Room 4 of the Launch Control Center at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. It features Endeavour soaring into orbit above the sailing vessel HMS Endeavour for which it was named. The Cupola, delivered to the International Space Station by Endeavour on STS-130, frames various images that represent the processing and execution of the Space Shuttle Program. Clockwise from top, are the first-ever use of a drag chute during...

The Space Shuttle Endeavour is being rolled around from Launch Pad 39A to Launch Pad 39B. The rare pad switch was deemed necessary after contamination was discovered in the Payload Changeout Room at Pad A. The transfer began around noon and was completed about seven hours later. Still to come are the payloads for the upcoming STS-61 mission, the first servicing of the Hubble Space Telescope.

From left to right: Mission Specialists(MS) Richard J. Hieb, Thomas D. Akers, and Pierre J. Thuot. The three prepare to attach the capture bar which is tethered to Hieb. Thuot is positioned on the Remote Manipulator System (RMS) arm, from which he...

The Space Shuttle Endeavour receives a high-flying salute from its sister Shuttle Columbia, atop NASA's Shuttle Carrier Aircraft, shortly after its landing Oct. 12, 1994 at Edwards, California, to complete mission STS-68. Columbia was being ferried from the Kennedy Space Center, Florida to Air Force Plant 42, Palmdale, California, where it will undergo six months of inspections, modifications, and systems upgrades. The STS-68 11-day mission was devoted to radar imaging of Earth's geological...

NASA's 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft No. 911, with the space shuttle orbiter Endeavour securely mounted atop its fuselage, taxies to the runway to begin the ferry flight from Rockwell's Plant 42 at Palmdale, California, where the orbiter was built, to the Kennedy Space Center, Florida. At Kennedy, the space vehicle was processed and launched on orbital mission STS-49, which landed at NASA's Ames-Dryden Flight Research Facility (later redesignated Dryden Flight Research Center), Edwards,...

Astronaut F. Story Musgrave, anchored on the end of the Remote Manipulator System (RMS) arm, prepares to be elevated to the top of the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) to install protective covers on the magnetometers. Astronaut Jeffrey A. Hoffman inside payload bay, assisted Musgrave with final servicing tasks on the telescope, wrapping up five days of space walks.
