About the drop test:

Under a brilliant early morning Arizona sky, NASA conducted a successful, record-breaking test of a drogue parachute being designed to return next-generation space vehicles safely to Earth. The 77,000-pound payload used in the test was dropped from the back of a U.S. Air Force C-17 at an altitude of 25,000 feet, setting a record for the heaviest single load ever extracted out of a C-17 during flight. NASA conducted the drop test, April 14, at the U.S. Army’s Yuma Proving Ground near Yuma, Ariz.

Due to the extra weight of the test article, the Ares Projects team took extra precautions to load the drop test article onto an Air Force C-17 on April 13, 2010, in preparation for NASA’s drogue parachute test at the U.S. Army Proving Ground near Yuma, Ariz.

Inside the NASA Crawler Transporter – PART 1 of 3

This is a guided tour I was given by KSC’s Crawler Transporter manager, back in 2000. We go throughout the interior and up on the top where the Mobile Launch platform for Apollo Saturn V and later the Space Shuttle stacks are mounted and taken out to the launch pad. You can learn more about these amazing machines at: www.nasa.gov With special thanks for the kind assistance of Kennedy Space Center PAO

Part 1 Reaching for the Stars Space Exploration – BBC Exploration | Storyteller Media

Explorations this time tells the story of our place in space. At the Keck Observatory in Hawaii, scientists are engaged in one of the most important quests of modern astronomy. They’re scanning the universe for new planets. Planets that might support life now or in the future. Planets that might be like earth. Our desire to reach out into space is a compulsion. The more we soar, the greater that compulsion. In the 1970s, after decades of careful planning, 4 probes, Pioneer 10, Pioneer 11, Voyager One, and Voyager 2 were sent on missions to the outer limits of our solar system. Their journeys would last almost 30 years, and cover more than 8 billion miles. These probes brought mankind astonishing images of the planets in our solar system. Mankinds first giant leap was made with hot air in balloons. Tied to balloons, man could leave the ground and travel higher than ever before. In 1960, a balloon carrying US airforce captain Joe Kittinger ascended to the edge of space, some 100000 feet off the ground. Then he jumped out. In 4 minutes, Kittinger reached the speed of sound Storyteller produce and distribute documentaries and factual programming specialising in animals and nature; from endangered species and what’s being done to save them to mysterious animal and monster stories. www.storyteller.com.au http www.facebook.com twitter.com www.animalalliestv.com http
