    Дата: 11 февраля 1998 (1998-02-11) От: Alexander Bondugin Тема: Aerospace Safety Advisory Panel To Present Report To NASA Привет всем! Вот, свалилось из Internet... Sonja Alexander Headquarters, Washington, DC February 11, 1998 (Phone: 202/358-1761) NOTE TO EDITORS: N98-13 AEROSPACE SAFETY ADVISORY PANEL TO PRESENT REPORT TO NASA The Aerospace Safety Advisory Panel (ASAP) will present its annual report at a public meeting to NASA Administrator Daniel S. Goldin at 1 p.m. EST on Thursday, Feb. 12, 1998, in the Program Review Center, room 9H40, NASA Headquarters, 300 E Street S.W., Washington, DC. Each year, the panel reviews and evaluates current and future NASA programs and activities and reports its findings to the NASA Administrator. Priority is given to programs that involve the safety of human flight. Following the Apollo spacecraft fire on Jan. 27, 1967, Congress enacted legislation to establish the ASAP as a senior advisory committee to NASA. The ASAP report will be available for media representatives at 1 p.m. Thursday in the NASA Headquarters Newsroom (202/358- 1600). The report will be distributed at the meeting and is on the Code Q home page at URL: http://www.hq.nasa.gov/office/codeq/ -end- Hа сегодня все, пока! =SANA=
    Дата: 11 февраля 1998 (1998-02-11) От: Alexander Bondugin Тема: First Major Flight Component For X-33 Arrives At Palmdale Привет всем! Вот, свалилось из Internet... Jim Cast Headquarters, Washington, DC February 11, 1998 (Phone: 202/358-1779) Dom Amatore Marshall Space Flight Center, Huntsville, AL (Phone: 205/544-0031) Ron Lindeke Lockheed Martin Skunk Works, Palmdale, CA (Phone: 805/572-4153) Marion LaNasa Lockheed Martin Michoud Space Systems, New Orleans, LA (Phone: 504/257-1307) RELEASE: 98-27 FIRST MAJOR FLIGHT COMPONENT FOR X-33 ARRIVES AT PALMDALE NASA and Lockheed Martin Tuesday saw their X-33 technology demonstrator move from drawing board to plant floor as the first major flight component arrived at the Lockheed Martin Skunk Works vehicle assembly facility in Palmdale, CA. The 26-foot-long, 5,500-pound aluminum liquid oxygen tank that will form much of the nose and forward third of the X-33 vehicle arrived Tuesday afternoon by air from the Lockheed Martin Michoud Space Systems facility, New Orleans, LA. "The arrival of the liquid oxygen tank marks the start of an ambitious assembly schedule that will see the X-33 vehicle roll out and begin flight tests within 18 months," said Jerry Rising, Lockheed Martin Skunk Works vice president for X-33/VentureStar. "This is a significant achievement in making the X-33 vehicle ready for flight, as the liquid oxygen tank is the first major element to be placed into the assembly fixture," added Gene Austin, NASA X-33 program manager. The tank, designed to hold more than 181,000 pounds of liquid oxygen, will supply the oxidizer needed to burn the vehicle's fuel, liquid hydrogen. The liquid oxygen tank design also plays a key structural role in the X-33. It has a complex, two-lobed structure allowing for a close fit within the vehicle's outer shell. When filled, the tank will account for about 65 percent of total vehicle weight at liftoff. The liquid oxygen tank design is one of a number of challenging technology areas that are key to the X-33, including the vehicle's two cutting-edge composite liquid hydrogen tanks, two linear aerospike engines, the vehicle's rugged metallic thermal protection system and advanced avionics systems, all of which will be arriving at the Palmdale facility during the coming year. Vehicle assembly is scheduled to be completed in late spring 1999, with the first flight, to be launched from Edwards Air Force Base, CA, scheduled for July 1999. The wedge-shaped X-33 is a sub-scale prototype technology demonstrator leading to the next generation of commercially developed and operated single-stage-to orbit vehicles, flying after the turn of the Century, which could dramatically reduce the cost of putting payloads into space. -end- Hа сегодня все, пока! =SANA=
    Дата: 11 февраля 1998 (1998-02-11) От: Alexander Bondugin Тема: Lunar Prospector Update #2 - February 9, 1998 Привет всем! Вот, свалилось из Internet... Lunar Prospector Status Report #19 Feburary 9, 1998 - 7:00 p.m. EST (4:00 p.m. PST) This past week, no anomalies surfaced with regard to the spacecraft or its instruments, and no commanding activities were performed. During the afternoon (PST), Feb. 9, 1998, Mission Control executed a small re-orientiation maneuver. According to mission controllers at Ames, thermal constraints made this maneuver necessary to re-position the orientation of the spacecraft's spin axis so that the Sun angle is pointing slightly toward the top of the vehicle. The Lunar Prospector spacecraft continues to perform very well according to Mission Control at NASA's Ames Research Center. The current state of the vehicle (as of 4:00 p.m. (PST) on Mon., Feb. 9, 1998), according to Mission Operations Manager Marcie Smith, is as follows: Orbit Number: 345 Data Downlink Rate: 3600 bps Spacecraft Spin Rate: 11.94 rpm Spin Axis Attitude: Longitude: 242 deg Latitude: 88.4 deg Trajectory: Periselene: 92 km Aposelene: 109 km Period: 118 minutes duration Occultations: 46 minutes duration Inclination: none Eclipses: 39 minutes duration Alison Davis Lunar Prospector Mission Office NASA Ames Research Center Moffett Field, Calif. 94035 Hа сегодня все, пока! =SANA=
