STS-51F: Shuttle becomes observatory
Posted: May 7, 2006
Duration: 20 min
Space shuttle Challenger was transformed into an orbiting observatory to study the sun, stars and space environment during the Spacelab 2 mission in the summer of 1985. But getting into space wasn't easy. The shuttle suffered an engine shutdown on the launch pad, then during ascent two weeks later lost one of its three main engines. It marked the first Abort To Orbit in shuttle history. In this post-flight film, the crew of STS-51F narrates highlights of the mission that includes tests using a small plasma-monitoring satellite was launched from Challenger's robot arm.

Duration: 23 min 22 sec
A seven-person crew featuring payload specialists from France and Saudi Arabia flew aboard the June 1985 mission of space shuttle Discovery. They narrate the highlights of STS-51G in this post-flight film. Three communications satellites -- for Mexico, the Arab countries and the U.S. -- were launched from the payload bay. And the SPARTAN 1 astrophysics spacecraft was deployed from the shuttle's robot arm for a two-day freeflight to make its science observations before being retrieved and returned to Earth.

STS-51B: Monkeys, bubbles and auroras....oh my!
Posted: May 1, 2006
Duration: 19 min 14 sec
The flight of Spacelab 3 aboard Challenger in April/May 1985 was a week-long scientific research mission using a laboratory tucked in the shuttle's payload bay. The astronauts floated in and out of the module via a connecting tunnel. Experiments focused on material and fluid behaviors in weightlessness, plus observations of monkeys in the lab. The crew also watched amazing auroral displays over the Earth. This post-flight crew film shows the highlights of STS-51B and includes remarkable views out the shuttle cockpit window during launch showing the Chesapeake Bay, New York City and Cape Cod as Challenger soared up the eastern seaboard.

STS-51D: Astronauts try to save ailing satellite after deployment
Posted: April 30, 2006
Duration: 23 min 48 sec
Discovery launched April 12, 1985 on the STS-51D mission, four years to the day of the maiden space shuttle flight. A Canadian communications spacecraft was successfully dispatched from the payload bay. But a U.S. military communications satellite, known as Leasat 3, failed to activate after its deployment. That set the stage for a spacewalk -- the shuttle program's first unplanned EVA -- to attach handcrafted "Flyswatter" objects on the shuttle robotic arm to hit a timing switch on the satellite. The rescue attempt did not succeed (requiring the later STS-51I repair mission). Upon landing at Kennedy Space Center, Discovery blew a tire. The crew of seven, including Senator Jake Garn of Utah, narrate this post-flight film of highlights from the week-long mission.
