Hmm, some light reading! Seriously though, that's neat stuff. What I find amazing is this thing came back from orbit... When it is landing in Florida, for instance on the last flight, it came over Winter Haven at 90,000 ft and Mach 3, and a few minutes later did a dead-stick landing at the Cape. No second chance, no go-around. Compare to us on an airliner: easing down from 35K or so and cutting back from 0.87 mach, and taking a half an hour or so to get to the ground...
wow basically you memorize the entire shuttle inside out
This is too cool not to share. Had to post it on our club's FB page. Thanks Winston!
wow I think this is really cool!! I mean I just browsed through it but imagine having to know all of it and where to look if you have an issue in space???
