Sensory Bin 101

I am sure you have seen sensory bin and sensory play ideas floating around on Pinterest. If you don’t come from an early childhood education background, you may be wondering “what the heck is a sensory bin?”. Sensory bins are so much fun and so educational and I am here to show you the why, how, and what of sensory bins and give you some tips and fun ideas to get started.

Why are sensory bins important? 

Young children learn about their world by exploring and experimenting using their senses.

By observing a young toddler exploring  their environment you will see this in action. They look at,  touch, smell, and taste just about anything they come in contact with- this is how they learn. When their senses are stimulated, messages are sent to their brain which builds neural pathways that are needed for future learning.

Sensory bins are a great way for children to learn using all 5 senses at once. Child development theorist Jean Piaget described the way children learn by calling them “little scientists“.

Through sensory play and sensory bins children are using the scientific method and are also building pre-math skills, fine motor skills, language skills, imaginative play, and much much more. Not only that but sensory bins are so visually appealing and fun!

How do I create a sensory bin?

To create a sensory bin you must first have a container to put you sensory materials in. I use one similar to this clear plastic container, that is a 6 pack and you only need one.

Next, you must decide on the theme of your bin and gather your supplies  You don’t have to have a theme but making themed sensory bins can be a lot of fun. I love doing them for holidays.

Most sensory bins have a base which is usually made with rice or another sensory material. Next you add other items including scooping materials such as spoons, measuring cups, etc for scooping and pouring.

What do I put in a sensory bin?

Here are a list of some possible bases:

  • rice
  • colored rice
  • cooked spaghetti or other pasta
  • dry pasta
  • popcorn kernels
  • oats
  • flour
  • cloud dough
  • snow dough
  • beans
  • shredded paper
  • water
  • sand
  • leaves
  • dirt
  • flour
  • cereal
  • marbles
  • water beads
  • cotton balls
  • easter grass
  • jello
  • pudding
  • shaving cream

Any of these would be great by themselves but it is fun to add manipulative items which adds extra learning and experimenting opportunities.

Here are a list of some manipulative items:

  • spoon
  • small shovel
  • tongs
  • measuring cups
  • spatulas
  • cookie cutters
  • pompoms
  • wire cleaner
  • themed objects depending on your theme
  • toys
  • small figurines for small world play
  • potato masher

Sensory Bin Tips

1.Be mindful of choking hazards.

Sensory bins are supposed to be a closely supervised activity. Only put in what you are comfortable with your child handling. When I had a toddler I stick with things that are edible and that won’t be hazardous if ingested.

2. Take sensory bins outside or use a “mess mat” when indoors to contain the mess.

I use a plastic shower curtain liner for the dollar store as my “mess mat” that I put under the sensory bin.

3.Be creative!

Don’t worry, you can’t go wrong with a sensory bin. You can be as elaborate or as simple as you want to get and it will still be very beneficial for your child.

4. Get in on the fun

Help your child get even more out of sensory bins by playing with them! Some sensory bins I enjoy playing with just as much as my child. They can be very relaxing to run your hands through! You can help them expand their knowledge while exploring. Talk with that and introduce new vocabulary words.

5.Store the materials in a large ziplock bag until you want to get it out to play again.

Most of the materials can be stored for many months and used whenever you want.

Here are some of the themed sensory bins we have done. Just click on the picture to see the details!

    STORY WRITTEN FOR & USED WITH PERMISSIONPosted: March 6, 2009Lighting up the night sky, a Delta 2 rocket roared to life and vaulted away from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station late today, boosting a powerful space telescope into orbit around the sun for a $591 million mission to search for Earth-like planets orbiting distant stars. Credit: Carleton Bailie for United Launch Alliance”I think people everywhere want to know whether, with all the stars out there, do they have planets that are Earth-sized?” said principal investigator William Borucki of NASA’s Ames Research Center. “Are Earths frequent or are they rare? And this gives us that answer. It’s the next step in mankind’s exploration of the galaxy.”The Kepler spacecraft’s three-and-a-half-year mission began on time at 10:49:57 p.m. with a crackling roar and a torrent of fire that briefly turned night into day along Florida’s space coast. Putting on a spectacular weekend sky show, the United Launch Alliance Delta 2 rocket quickly climbed from its sea-side launch pad and arced away to the east over the Atlantic Ocean as it streaked toward space.Just over one minute after launch, six solid-fuel strap-on boosters that were ignited at liftoff to assist the Delta’s first-stage engine burned out and fell away while a final set of three ignited for another one-minute burn. The first-stage engine shut down as planned four-and-a-half minutes after launch and the ascent continued on the power of the Delta’s compact second stage.Two second-stage burns were required before Kepler and its solid-fuel third stage motor were released for a final one-and-a-half-minute firing to boost the craft out of Earth orbit. Spacecraft separation came on time at 11:52 p.m. At that point, Kepler was moving out at a blistering 6.2 miles per second.This was the 339th Delta rocket launched since 1960, the 141st upgraded Delta 2, and the 86th successful Delta 2 launch in a row dating back to January 1997. The Delta 2 record now stands at 139 successful missions against just two failures.”And now we have plenty of handshakes going on here in the mission director’s center because we have confirmation of spacecraft separation,” said NASA launch commentator George Diller. “It did occur on time at 61 minutes 49 seconds. … So at this point, the Kepler team now really gets to work.”Engineers will spend about two months checking out and calibrating Kepler’s complex systems before the mission begins in earnest.Trailing the Earth in its orbit around the sun, Kepler will aim a 95-megapixel camera on a patch of sky the size of an out-stretched hand that contains more than 4.5 million detectable stars. Of that total, the science team has picked some 300,000 that are of the right age, composition and brightness to host Earth-like planets. Over the life of the mission, more than 100,000 of those will be actively monitored by Kepler.The spacecraft’s camera will not take pictures like other space telescopes. Instead, it will act as a photometer, continually monitoring the brightness of candidate stars in its wide field of view and the slight dimming that will result if planets happen to pass in front.By studying subtle changes in brightness from such planetary transits – comparable to watching a flea creep across a car’s headlight at night – and the timing of repeated cycles, scientists can ferret out potential Earth-like worlds in habitable-zone orbits.The probability of finding sun-like stars with Earth-like planets in orbits similar to ours – and aligned so that Kepler can “see” them – is about one-half of 1 percent. Given the sample size, however, that still leaves hundreds of potential discoveries.But it will take three-and-a-half years of around-the-clock observations to capture the repeated cycles needed to confirm detection of an Earth-like world in an Earth-like orbit.”There’s a lot of desire in the science community to understand extra-terrestrial planets, not just find them,” said Ed Weiler, NASA’s associate administrator for space science. “We’ve already found 300 or so, mostly from the ground. But now we’re entering the stage of going beyond just proving that they exist. It’s how many are out there, and perhaps the most important question of all, are there any Earth’s out there?”So far, even though we’ve discovered (more than) 300 planets, we haven’t discovered any that are the size of the Earth in the so-called habitable zone, that is, a planet close enough to the star where it’s warm enough for water to be liquid, not frozen, or not too close to the sun where it would boil off. So Kepler is going to be the first mission that starts to answer that question, are there any Earth’s out there?”Named in honor of Johannes Kepler, the 17th century German astronomer who formulated the laws of planetary motion, NASA’s newest science satellite weighs 2,320 pounds and measures 15.3 feet from top to bottom. It is equipped with four solar panels capable of generating 1,100 watts of power, a radiation-hardened PowerPC flight computer and a Ka-band communications link to relay science data back to Earth. The spacecraft was built by Ball Aerospace of Boulder, Colo.Kepler will pass the moon’s orbit in just two days as it heads into a 371-day orbit around the sun, separating slowly from Earth. It will aim itself at a patch of sky near the left wing of Cygnus the Swan, midway between the stars Deneb and Vega.And then, Kepler will simply stare at the same stars for three-and-a-half years.”An Earth-like planet passing in front of a sun-like star is going to cause the brightness of that star to dim by only 1 part per 10,000,” said Natalie Batalha, a Kepler co-investigator at San Jose State University. “That’s like looking at a headlight from a great distance and trying to sense the brightness change when a flea crawls across the surface. But the Kepler instrument is designed to detect such small changes in brightness.”Kepler is capable of detecting Earth-like planets around stars ranging from 600 to 3,000 light years away.The science team is particularly interested in planets that may orbit within a star’s habitable zone, the region around a star where water on a planet can exist as a liquid. Habitable zones vary in location depending on a star’s size and brilliance. By timing changes in a star’s light as a transit occurs, scientists can figure out the size of a presumed planet’s orbit and thus whether it falls in that star’s habitable zone.”The habitable zone is where we think water will be,” Borucki said. “If you can find liquid water on the surface, we think we may very well find life there. So that zone is not too close to the star, because it’s too hot and the water boils. Not too far away where the water’s condensed and ice-covered, a planet covered with glaciers. It’s the goldilocks zone, not too hot, not too cold, just right for life.”Weiler said Kepler is a pathfinder of sorts for more sophisticated missions that may one day study the atmospheres of Earth-like planets to look for signs of biological – or even industrial – activity.”A lot of scientists out there would like to immediately go out and build very large telescopes, not just to find Earth-like planets but to study their atmospheres, to search for clues that there might be life on those planets,” Weiler said. “The trouble is, most of these proposals start at about $5 billion and work upwards from there.”Before we actually take the next step, looking for signs of life on Earth-like planets, we’ve got to be sure there are at least a few Earth-like planets out there. And that’s why Kepler is so important. It’s a rather small mission, a moderate mission, around ($600 million), and it’s really a pathfinder for future large space telescopes that will go after the question that we all have, are we alone in the universe?”Additional coverage for subscribers:VIDEO:THE FULL LAUNCH EXPERIENCE VIDEO:DELTA 2 ROCKET LIFTS OFF WITH KEPLER VIDEO:KEPLER SUCCESSFULLY SEPARATES FROM ROCKET VIDEO:UPDATE FROM THE NASA LAUNCH MANAGER VIDEO:LAUNCH REPLAY: KSC TRACKER VIDEO:LAUNCH REPLAY: UCS 23 TRACKER VIDEO:LAUNCH REPLAY: TOWER CAMERA VIDEO:LAUNCH REPLAY: PATRICK AFB VIDEO:LAUNCH REPLAY: PAD CAMERA VIDEO:LAUNCH REPLAY: PRESS SITE 1 VIDEO:LAUNCH REPLAY: TRIDENT BLUFF LOCATION VIDEO:LAUNCH REPLAY: SECOND VIEW FROM BLUFF VIDEO:AN INTERVIEW WITH NASA’S SCIENCE CHIEF VIDEO:LAUNCH PAD’S SERVICE TOWER ROLLED BACK VIDEO:HIGHLIGHTS OF KEPLER LAUNCH CAMPAIGN VIDEO:HIGHLIGHTS OF THE DELTA 2’S LAUNCH CAMPAIGN VIDEO:THURSDAY’S PRE-LAUNCH NEWS CONFERENCE VIDEO:SCIENTISTS PREVIEW THE KEPLER MISSION VIDEO:KEPLER PRE-FLIGHT OVERVIEW BRIEFING VIDEO:SPACECRAFT MOUNTED ATOP ROCKET AT PAD 17B VIDEO:LEAVING ASTROTECH FOR TRIP TO LAUNCH PAD VIDEO:CANISTER PUT AROUND KEPLER FOR PAD MOVE VIDEO:SOLID-FUEL THIRD STAGE ATTACHED TO KEPLER VIDEO:BEAUTY SHOTS OF OBSERVATORY IN CLEANROOM VIDEO:SPACECRAFT UNPACKED AT ASTROTECH FACILITY VIDEO:KEPLER ARRIVES ON FLORIDA’S SPACE COAST VIDEO:DELTA ROCKET’S SECOND STAGE ERECTED STS-134 PatchFree shipping to U.S. addresses!The final planned flight of space shuttle Endeavour is symbolized in the official embroidered crew patch for STS-134.

NASA’stwo Mars rovers are also operating in their fourth year since landing inJanuary 2004. All of the missions are working to map the planet and assistin the search for past or present water.”The Mars program is constructed of interrelated orbiters and landers,”said Doug McCuistion, NASA’s Mars exploration program director. “We doreconnaissance from orbit, followed up with ground truth and greaterunderstanding from systems actually on the surface.”Phoenix blasted off from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station at 5:26 a.m.EDT Saturday, but it will take 10 months for the craft to traverse thesolar system to reach Mars. The 772-pound lander will streak into theMartian atmosphere and fire braking rockets to gently touch down on asweeping plain near the planet’s north pole. Landing is scheduled for May25, 2008.The landing site was chosen because it is believed to harbor water icenear the surface, and an eight-foot robot arm will dig up to 20 inchesinto the soil to snag ice deposits. The soil will be put into a miniaturelaboratory inside Phoenix to analyze its composition.NASA’s Mars Odyssey and Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter probes played a keyrole in selecting the Phoenix landing site. Instruments on thosespacecraft provided high resolution imagery and estimates of ice depth forpotential Phoenix touchdown points.”I am a very strong proponent of using orbiters to find the mostinteresting places to send the rovers and landers,” said Phil Christensen,lead scientist for the Thermal Emission Imaging System instrument on MarsOdyssey.The Odyssey sensor, called THEMIS, can detect changes in surfacetemperature in the infrared wavelength. Scientists can draw conclusionsfrom the temperature changes to determine the presence of ice and largerocks.”Surfaces with deep ice cool off through the late summer and falldifferently than those that have a buried ice layer,” Christensen said.The Gamma Ray Spectrometer, another instrument aboard Mars Odyssey, hasalso detected plentiful water ice in the subsurface of the planet’s polarregions.”From an historical point of view, what Phoenix does is it’s the firstreal response to a significant to a significant scientific discovery.Odyssey found the water and said there is a significant amount of waterright there,” said Barry Goldstein, the Phoenix project manager at NASA’sJet Propulsion Laboratory.Powerful radars on Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter and Europe’s Mars Expresshave also found reservoirs of frozen water deeper underground.The initial survey of the Martian polar regions for Phoenix yielded amultitude of possible landing sites. Scientists thought they had chosen afront-runner in mid-2006, but detailed images from the newly arrived MarsReconnaissance Orbiter showed the area was littered with boulders thatcould pose serious danger to Phoenix.The High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment, or HiRISE, is the mostcapable camera ever deployed into the solar system. The instrument canresolve objects as small as one meter.HiRISE arrived aboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter in March 2006, andimagery from the camera caused scientists to consider alternate landingsites.”HiRISE images were used to certify the initial landing site, which wasrejected based on the boulder abundances,” said Alfred McEwen, theinstrument’s principal investigator.Phoenix must land at a site with no rocks larger than 14 to 18 inches,according to mission officials.When HiRISE determined the primary landing site was unsafe, THEMIS datawas used to search for other favorable regions. The instrument can detectlarge rocks during nighttime passes because they retain heat, whichincreases temperature returns in the infrared wavelength, Christensensaid.”The advantage of THEMIS was that we had complete coverage of the entirenorthern plains, whereas HiRISE could only image a very small fraction ofthe plains. What we did was to find the coldest regions in the THEMIStemperature maps, and then verify that these indeed have very few rocksusing HiRISE,” Christensen said.After extensive analysis, the Phoenix science team selected a new landingsite with fewer hazardous rocks. The preferred region lies in a largeshallow valley 30 miles wide and about 800 feet deep.The location lies at about the same latitude as central Greenland ornorthern Alaska on Earth, according to scientists.Data from THEMIS also confirmed the new region has water ice within two tosix inches of the surface.”All areas at these high latitudes probably have shallow ice, so the mainconsideration was landing safety,” McEwen said.Mars orbiters will continue to guide scientists to interesting and safelanding sites in the future. Mars Odyssey instruments helped the selectionprocess for NASA’s twin rovers in 2003, and data from Mars ReconnaissanceOrbiter will be factored into choosing a touchdown point for the agency’sMars Science Laboratory, a rover the size of a small car that will arriveat the red planet in 2010.”These examples demonstrate the incredible utility for having ?eyes’ inorbit to find landing sites,” Christensen said.Phoenix is designed to complete a mission lasting about 90 Martian days.It will land in the spring season on Mars, when the ice caps haveretreated to regions further north. But scientists expect the carbondioxide ice to eventually encroach on Phoenix as winter approaches, likelyencasing the lander in a debilitating deep freeze.Spirit and Opportunity, the two NASA rovers that found proof of vastamounts of water on ancient Mars, are still operating more than threeyears after reaching their designed lifetimes.”Our experience has been that luck is a good thing to have when you’reexploring Mars,” said Steve Squyres, chief scientist for the rovers.”One thing that three-and-a-half years on Mars has taught me is humility.I wouldn’t even begin to guess what Phoenix is going to experience.”Additional coverage for subscribers:VIDEO:PHOENIX LAUNCHES!

An artist’s concept shows a DSP satellite deployed in space. Credit: Northrop GrummanThe triple-body rocket lofted the 23rd and final Defense Support Programsatellite carrying an array of infrared sensors in geosynchronous orbit todetect missile launches and nuclear activity around the world.The Air Force’s DSP fleet is being phased out in favor of the Space-BasedInfrared System, or SBIRS. The new program will include payloads ingeosynchronous and elliptical high Earth orbits.”DSP’s legacy is one of service to the nation,” said Peggy Paul, DSPprogram manager at Northrop Grumman Corp., the spacecraft’s contractor.The first launch of a Defense Support Program satellite was on Nov. 6,1970, almost precisely 37 years ago.”I like to think of DSP as really providing a blanket of security that ournational has enjoyed since the early 70s,” said Air Force Col. RogerTeague, commander of the SBIRS space group at the Space Missile SystemsCenter.The formerly classified system was later unveiled to the public, withlaunches occurring aboard Titan rockets and one space shuttle missionbefore Saturday’s spectacular Delta 4 sendoff to punctuate the program.”A lot of folks are very much tuned to this being the last DSP launch, butit also helps us look toward the future as we prepare to usher in theSBIRS constellation,” Teague said.The $400 million satellite was deployed in a circular orbit with aninclination of about four degrees. When the craft will join its counterparts already in space is classified.”We have a very healthy DSP constellation,” Teague said. “That gives usgreat confidence for the next several years that the nation will beprotected.”The latest block design of DSP spacecraft are designed to work for atleast three years, with a goal of five years of service. Officials say some of thesatellites easily surpass those marks.”They are exceeding that two-to-three times over,” said Lt. Col. JoeConiglio, Air Force DSP program director. “It is a robust system that hasbeen able to do the mission far and above what it was ever designed for.”Combined, the satellites have lived 165 years beyond their minimumexpected lifetimes, according to Paul.”That’s 30 to 50 satellites that didn’t have to be launched,” she said.”That’s a real value to the government.”Sensors aboard DSP satellites have lived an average of more than fourtimes longer than their design lives, Paul said.The DSP system, originally developed to watch for Soviet missile launchesand nuclear tests, transitioned to a new role after the end of the ColdWar. DSP satellites have met the challenge of the emergence of new playersin missile and nuclear technology, according to Teague.”That brings a new threat to the stage that we’re trying to account forand make sure that we have capabilities to guard against that,” he said.Today’s DSP satellites carry more than 6,000 infrared detectors that areconstantly on the vigil for ballistic and theater short-range missilelaunches and nuclear detonations. The satellites have proven to be aflexible asset in providing early warning of both strategic and tacticallaunches, Paul said.The fleet provided early warning of Iraqi SCUD missile launches tocivilians and coalition military forces in Saudi Arabia and Israel.”DSP has really provided that capability that allows us to live in peaceand without fear and knowing that we’ve got a system that’s alwayswatching not only our homeland but also U.S. forces and allies abroad,”Teague said.Scientists have also used DSP infrared instruments to detect volcaniceruptions and wildfires, according to the Air Force.”Even though it’s a legacy system, our folks are still finding ways toexploit the capabilities of this system,” Coniglio said.Future system on the horizonNew satellites in the SBIRS program will join the heritage constellationin geosynchronous orbit beginning in late 2009, according to Teague.”We’re still extracting every ounce of value out of the DSP system,”Teague said. “But like all great systems, we’ve found opportunities andabilities to be able to improve that and we’re doing that with SBIRS.”The next-generation system also includes sensors mounted on top secret spysatellites in egg-shaped high Earth orbits. The first instrument packageis already in space, the Air Force announced last year.”This has been a truly revolutionary capability that we now have in HEO,”Teague said. “That gives us new glimpses and new capability that we nowhave the opportunity to exploit.”The first HEO payload is not yet operational, Teague said, but officialsare using it as a learning tool before a second group of sensors islaunched on another classified host satellite. The HEO system could bedeclared operational by the middle of next year.”As we look to launch the SBIRS GEO satellites, we’ll be bringing thoseinto the operational constellation,” Teague said.Teague said the first GEO satellite payload has been sent to a LockheedMartin Corp. facility and integrated on the spacecraft bus for thebeginning of a lengthy combined test campaign.The military holds contracts for two geosynchronous satellites withLockheed Martin, with an option for a third spacecraft. Teague said adecision on whether to exercise the contract option or move on to a newdesign is being discussed at the highest levels of military leadership.”There are a number of decisions ongoing within the Pentagon with regardto at what point do you take that snapshot and draw the line in the sandand say, ‘Hey, I’m going to move on to the next generation and how do I dothat? Do I evolve my current capability? Do I go out and do somethingcompletely different? All of those discussions are underway right now,” hesaid.The SBIRS system originally included plans for additional geosynchronoussatellites, but cost overruns and development delays caused those plans tobe scrapped.Cost estimates for the program have nearly tripled since its inception in1996. The soaring costs could play a role in a decision whether to launchmore SBIRS satellites or create a new system.”A big lesson that we have to keep in mind is that we’ve got to be able toappropriately manage our risks and making sure that we don’t bite too bigof an apple off at one time and that we can deliver something on budget,on cost and on schedule,” Teague said.The infrared sensors and the associated electronic systems for the SBIRSprogram are built by Northrop Grumman.The SBIRS payloads include a scanning sensor that will provide more timelydata than the DSP instruments. Other detectors on geosynchronoussatellites will stare at specific regions with increased sensitivity.Expanded short-wave and mid-wave infrared sensors will also allow theSBIRS satellites to perform a broader range of missions.”The scanning technology that we have on orbit with HEO is the exactidentical capability that will be on orbit at GEO,” Teague said. “It givesus great confidence going forward that what we’ve got is going to workgreat.”The SBIRS constellation will work in tandem with the Space Tracking andSurveillance System managed by the Missile Defense Agency. Originallycalled SBIRS Low and managed by the Air Force, the STSS satellites will bestationed in low Earth orbit to demonstrate the tracking and quickidentification of launches for missile defense applications.The first orbital members of the STSS program will be launched next year.”In the near term, we feel very confident and comfortable about where weare with being able to provide that surveillance capability,” Teague said.Spaceflight Now’s Justin Ray contributed to this report.Additional coverage for subscribers:VIDEO:WIDESCREEN MOVIE OF LAUNCH SHOT FROM PRESS SITE VIDEO:DELTA 4-HEAVY ROCKETS LAUNCHES WITH DSP 23 VIDEO:PRE-LAUNCH NEWS CONFERENCE VIDEO:ANIMATION OF DSP SATELLITE VIDEO:DSP 23 SATELLITE IS TRANSPORTED TO PAD 37B VIDEO:THE DSP 23 SPACECRAFT MOUNTED ATOP ADAPTER VIDEO:FIRST DELTA 4-HEAVY FROM LIFTOFF TO BOOSTER SEP.

A 5-yard gain on third-and-4 is a good play, whereas a 5-yard gain on third-and-14 isn’t. A 20-yard touchdown pass when tied in the second quarter means more than a 20-yard touchdown pass when down 30 points late in the fourth quarter.

    The Delta 2 rocket ignites to launch GPS 2R-11. Credit: Carleton Bailie/BoeingAs the 50th Global Positioning System satellite rose to space Saturday, it celebrated the man who championed the concept of orbiting spacecraft serving as “lighthouses in the sky” to guide mankind with precision navigation information.The late Dr. Ivan A. Getting, credited as the visionary behind GPS and the founding president of The Aerospace Corporation, passed away last October at the age of 91.”Dr. Getting was one of the founding fathers of GPS over 30 years ago. He envisioned GPS and worked tirelessly to make it a reality,” said Jerry Heydinger, Air Force program manager for the GPS space and control segment.GPS satellites send continuous navigation signals that allow users around the world to pinpoint their position and determine time. The signals are so accurate that time can be figured to less than a millionth of a second, velocity to within a fraction of a mile per hour and location to within a few feet. In a lasting tribute that will circle 11,000 miles above the planet, a famous quote by Getting, “Lighthouses in the Sky, Serving All Mankind,” was inscribed on the GPS 2R-11 spacecraft.The quote, along with Getting’s name and the years of his birth and death were carved into a one-tenth-of-a-pound “trim weight” used on the satellite. The plate commemorating Getting is mounted on the side of the GPS satellite. Credit: Air ForceOnce the commemoration idea originated within Aerospace Corporation and the Space and Missile Systems Center at Los Angeles Air Force Base, it quickly gained momentum.”It was obviously a good choice. Dr. Getting was truly a pioneer in the space and GPS worlds,” Heydinger said.”He not only laid the groundwork for GPS, but left his imprint on many other highly successful defense and technology programs integral to our national security and well being,” added Dr. William F. Ballhaus Jr., president and Chief Executive Officer of The Aerospace Corporation.The GPS 2R-11 satellite was successfully launched at 12:53 p.m. EST (1753 GMT) Saturday from Cape Canaveral, Florida.Riding atop a three-stage Boeing Delta 2 rocket, the craft was delivered into a temporary elliptical orbit stretching from 100 miles above Earth at the closest spot to nearly 11,000 miles at apogee. The Delta 2 rocket blasts away from pad 17B on Saturday. Credit: Carleton Bailie/BoeingIn the coming days, the craft will use its kick motor to circularize the orbit at 11,000 miles and join the GPS constellation where it will replace the ailing GPS 2A-19 satellite.”(This) launch is important for ensuring that the GPS system remains robust in its mission of providing precise positioning and time information to military and civilian users around the globe,” said Lt. Col. Michael Mason, Air Force Space Command’s lead for operations and sustainment of the navigation satellite system.The fresh satellite is replacing GPS 2A-19 because the 11-year-old spacecraft has a suspect Navigation Data Unit. “Failure (of GPS 2A-19) is not imminent,” Mason said, noting that the satellite will continue to be used as a spare. “But this (launch) in an important step to make sure we maintain the robustness of the constellation.” Built by Lockheed Martin, the $45 million GPS 2R-11 satellite will fill the Plane C, Slot 3 position in the GPS network.”The 50th GPS mission is a major program milestone and we look forward to achieving a successful on-orbit checkout to quickly place the satellite’s advanced navigational capabilities into operational service,” said Dave Podlesney, Lockheed Martin’s GPS 2R program director.”It’s our fervent hope and prayer that this GPS spacecraft will serve to guide soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines to their destinations and successful completion of their mission, and to their safe return home for years to come,” said Lt. Col. Brad Broemmel, the Air Force launch director. An artist’s concept of a GPS Block 2R satellite orbiting Earth. Credit: Lockheed Martin”GPS capabilities have become a key enabler to the way we perform joint coalition warfighting,” Mason said. “Today, it is impossible to envision putting young men and women into harm’s way without the advantages that GPS brings to the battlefield.”That being said, GPS capabilities have also become a critical enabler for an untold number of civil applications, and the Air Force fully understands its responsibilities and takes its role as the steward of GPS for civil use very seriously.”Twenty-six years ago, the first GPS satellite was launched aboard an Atlas booster from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California. Eleven of the so-called Block 1 GPS satellites were launched through 1985, although one liftoff failed, as the U.S. military tested the space-based navigation concept.Today’s operational GPS system began launching in February 1989 on Delta 2 rockets from the Cape. Nine Block 2, 19 Block 2A and 11 Block 2R spacecraft have launched with one failure.The next GPS is scheduled to go up July 20, followed by another in September.Video coverage for subscribers only:VIDEO:DELTA 2 ROCKET BLASTS OFF WITH GPS 2R-11 VIDEO:LONGER LENGTH LAUNCH MOVIE VIDEO:SPACECRAFT SEPARATION ANNOUNCED VIDEO:FIRST COUNTDOWN HALTED BY ALARM Apollo 11 special patchSpecial collectors’ patch marking the 35th anniversary of the historic Apollo 11 moon landing is now available.Choose your store: – Apollo 12 tribute DVD setNew!Featuring the jovial crew of Pete Conrad, Dick Gordon and Alan Bean, the Apollo 12 mission was struck by lightning shortly after liftoff but proceeded on the second successful exploration voyage to the lunar surface.

Credit: Justin Ray/Spaceflight NowNow comes WGS 4 early next year with its built-in enhancements to support the higher data rates needed by airborne intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions.The Air Force plans to put WGS 4 into operation over the Middle East and Southeast Asia for U.S. Central Command and U.S. Pacific Command.Getting the 6.5-ton craft into orbit is the mission for the powerful Delta 4 rocket, which began its pre-flight campaign at the launch pad this week.The bright orange and white rocket, stretching 170 feet long, emerged from the Horizontal Integration Facility at 4:30 p.m. EDT Monday. Riding a 36-wheel, diesel-powered transporter, the Delta took an hour-long trip down the road and up the pad’s ramp to Cape Canaveral’s Complex 37.Initial assembly of the rocket, including mating of the cryogenic upper stage with the Common Booster Core first stage using a precision laser alignment system, had been completed inside the Horizontal Integration Facility over the past couple of months.After the vehicle arrived at the base of the pad, technicians went to work Monday evening getting equipment ready to raise the rocket vertically. The pallets cradling the Delta were tied down to the Fixed Pad Erector and the transporter used to drive the rocket to the pad disengaged to pull away.The erector system and its hydraulic pistons then lifted the rocket upright at 10 a.m. EDT Tuesday, setting the vehicle atop the pad’s launch table within 20 minutes.Workers later unhooked the booster from the cradles, allowing the erector platform along with the pallets to lower back to the ground at 5 p.m.Credit: Justin Ray/Spaceflight NowOver the next three months at Complex 37, a full pre-launch test program and the final rocket assembly steps will be carried out, including installation of the four strap-on solid-fuel motors to the first stage and attachment of the payload.WGS 4 is scheduled for shipment from the Boeing satellite manufacturing factory in Los Angeles to Cape Canaveral on November 14 to undergo checkouts and fueling before joining its rocket at the pad.When fully stacked and its nose cone in place, this Delta 4 Medium+(5,4) rocket will tower 217 feet tall. It will be 358th launch of a Delta rocket since 1960 and the 18th for the Delta 4 program since 2002.STS-134 PatchFree shipping to U.S. addresses!The final planned flight of space shuttle Endeavour is symbolized in the official embroidered crew patch for STS-134.

Credit: NASALiftoff of the GPS 2F-2 spacecraft is scheduled for July 14 during a 19-minute window extending from 2:49 to 3:08 a.m. EDT (0649-0708 GMT).The launch is timed to deliver the satellite into the GPS constellation to replace a 20-year craft that has long exceeded its expected lifespan.GPS satellites fly about 11,000 miles above the planet and emit continuous navigation signals that allow users to find their precise position in latitude, longitude and altitude and determine time. Originally built for the U.S. military, the GPS service has spread across the world as an indispensable commercial utility.The Air Force is in the midst of further upgrading the GPS network by deploying a new breed of satellite that features improved accuracy, enhanced internal atomic clocks, better anti-jam resistance, a civil signal for commercial aviation, a longer design life and reprogrammable onboard processors to evolve with future needs.The GPS 2F-2 satellite is pictured here at the El Segundo satellite integration and test complex earlier this year. Credit: The Boeing CompanyA dozen of these new satellites in the Block 2F series are being built by The Boeing Company. The first was successfully launched from the Cape on May 27, 2010.GPS 2F-2 was shipped April 19 from Boeing’s manufacturing facility in El Segundo, Calif., to the Florida spaceport in a C-17 Globemaster III airlifter. After arriving at the Skid Strip, it was taken to Area 59 were GPS spacecraft undergo their pre-flight preps.Launch base testing, the filling of maneuvering propellants and encapsulation within the two-piece rocket nose cone were among the activities accomplished at the satellite’s cleanroom hangar.A motorized trailer then carried the 3,400-pound satellite up the road to Complex 37 early Monday. It was positioned on the oceanside of the mobile service gantry and hoisted into the pad tower for bolting to the rocket’s second stage.A file image shows satellite payload ready for lifting into the Delta 4 rocket’s launch pad. Credit: NASAToday’s GPS constellation is comprised of 31 operational satellites, including 11 Block 2A’s made by Boeing, 12 Block 2R’s and seven 2R-Modernized spacecraft built by Lockheed Martin, and Boeing’s first Block 2F.Ground controllers expect to have the GPS 2F-2 satellite checked out and ready for use about 30 days after launch, the Air Force says.The new spacecraft will occupy the Plane D, Slot 2A location of the navigation network, which is divided into six orbital groupings with multiple satellites flying in each.The craft takes over the position held by the GPS 2A-11 satellite, which was launched by a Delta 2 rocket from Cape Canaveral on July 3, 1991.Remarkably, that aging bird continues to function despite the loss of some redundant systems and far outlasting its design life. It will be relocated within the same orbital plane as a reinforcement while living out its remaining usefulness.The Air Force recently completed an 18-month shuffling of six GPS satellites in the constellation to achieve “the most optimal geometry in its 42-year history,” according to the service. The effort will boost signal reception to users in difficult terrains and the system’s overall accuracy worldwide.John Glenn Mission PatchFree shipping to U.S. addresses!The historic first orbital flight by an American is marked by this commemorative patch for John Glenn and Friendship 7.Final Shuttle Mission PatchFree shipping to U.S. addresses!The crew emblem for the final space shuttle mission is available in our store.

The instruments onboard NOAA-N Prime include the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer/3 (AVHRR/3); High Resolution Infrared Radiation Sounder (HIRS/4); Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit A (AMSU-A); Microwave Humidity Sounder (MHS); Solar Backscatter Ultraviolet Radiometer/2 (SBUV-2); Space Environment Monitor/2 (SEM/2); and an Advanced Data Collection System (ADCS). In addition, it carries two search and rescue instruments: the Search and Rescue Repeater and the Search and Rescue Processor and three Digital Data Recorders. Instrument Payload and CapabilitiesFor over 30 years, NOAA has freely and openly provided satellite data through direct broadcast to users in the United States and to all countries throughout the world. In the United States, any commercial firm receiving data through direct readout may provide tailored products to customers and/or viewers. In addition, polar operational environmental satellite data products are made available to users in the United States and throughout the world through NOAA’s Satellite Active Archive. The NOAA polar operational environmental satellites collect global data on cloud cover; surface conditions such as ice, snow, and vegetation; atmospheric temperatures; and moisture, aerosol, and ozone distributions; and collect and relay information from fixed and moving data platforms. The Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer/3 is the primary imaging system and consists of visible, near infrared (IR) and thermal IR channels. The primary sounding suite flying on NOAA-N Primeis the Microwave Humidity Sounder (MHS), the High Resolution Infrared Radiation Sounder (HIRS/4) and the Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit-A, which measure atmospheric temperature and humidity. The Solar Backscatter Ultraviolet Radiometer/2 instrument is both an imager and a sounder. As an imager, it produces total column ozone maps. As a sounder, it obtains and measures the ozone distribution in the atmosphere as a function of altitude. Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer/3, built by International Telephone and Telegraph-A/CD (Fort Wayne, Ind.), is composed of six detectors: three view reflected energy in the visible portion of the electromagnetic spectrum and three view energy in the near-infrared portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. The Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (which is the type of instrument called an “imager”) observes vegetation, clouds, and the surface of bodies of water, shorelines, snow, aerosols and ice. It can detect the heat in the environment, the temperature of snowcaps and the sea surface, vegetation growth around the world and forest fires. From this data, scientists on the ground can determine whether snowcaps are growing or diminishing in size, the effects of changes in ocean temperature and other changes in the environment. The instrument has a scan mirror that continuously rotates and scans the Earth at six revolutions per second to provide continuous coverage. Scientists, commercial fisherman, teachers and many others use the data generated by the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer worldwide. High Resolution Infrared Radiation Sounder (HIRS/4), built by International Telephone and Telegraph-A/ CD (Fort Wayne, Ind.), is an atmospheric sounding instrument. It observes “columns” in the atmosphere and obtains data from each of 20 segments (or bands) in that column. Each of these 20 bands can be associated with energy from a specific region and height in the atmosphere. By combining the data from the different bands, the instrument can generate complete temperature and moisture profiles. It can also measure how much of the Sun’s energy remains as it travels through the atmosphere. The instrument has 19 infrared channels and one visible channel. Each channel takes measurements at a particular frequency that is associated with a particular element (or gas) in the atmosphere. These gases are principally carbon dioxide, water and ozone. These measurements allow scientists to determine the amount of each of these gases in the atmosphere and the altitude at which they appear. Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit-A, built by Northrop Gruman (Azusa, Calif.,) formerly Aerojet, provides data that is used along with data obtained from the High Resolution Picture Transmission to produce a new suite of microwave-based surface and hydrological products, including global atmospheric temperature and humidity profiles from the Earth’s surface to the upper stratosphere, about 48 kilometers or 29.8 miles. Among these products are total precipitable water (water vapor), cloud liquid water, rain rate, snow cover and sea ice concentration. It has 15 channels and continuously scans the Earth’s surface and the atmosphere, measuring naturally emitted microwave signals radiated by the Earth’s surface and atmosphere. The microwave signals measured by the Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit-A range from 23 gigahertz to 89 gigahertz. The Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit-A is divided into two physically separate modules, each of which operates and interfaces with the spacecraft independently. Microwave Humidity Sounder (MHS) built by EADS Astrium and donated by the European Oganisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT) (Darmstadt, Germany) is a new instrument for the NOAA series of satellites. It is a five-channel microwave instrument intended primarily to measure profiles of atmospheric humidity. It is also sensitive to liquid water in clouds and so measures cloud liquid water content. Additionally, it provides qualitative estimates of the precipitation rate. The MHS measures the amount of moisture (water) in the atmosphere. Because of the high variability of atmospheric water, the MHS has a higher resolution than the AMSU-A, with an approximate 16-km (10-mi) diameter circular field of view at nadir. Ninety such fields of view are measured in each cross-track scan. The instrument has approximately the same swath width as AMSU-A but scans across-track in one-third the time so as to keep the two instruments synchronized. By this means, arrays of 3 x 3 MHS samples will overlay each AMSU-A sample, facilitating synergistic use of these instruments. Space Environment Monitor (SEM-2) originally built by Panametrics (Waltham, Mass.), now Assurance Technology Corporation (Carlisle, Mass).The SEM-2 provides measurements to determine the intensity of the Earth’s radiation belts and the flux of charged particles at satellite altitude. It provides knowledge of solar terrestrial phenomena as well as warnings of solar wind occurrences that may impair long-range communications and high- altitude operations, damage satellite circuits and solar panels, or cause changes in drag and magnetic torque on satellites. The SEM-2 consists of two separate sensor units and a common Data Processing Unit (DPU). The sensor units are the Total Energy Detector (TED) and the Medium Energy Proton and Electron Detector (MEPED). Solar Backscatter Ultraviolet Radiometer/2, built by Ball Aerospace (Boulder, Co.) is flown on the NOAA afternoon satellites. It is a long-term monitoring device that takes global measurements and observes how elements in the atmosphere change over time. The Solar Backscatter Ultraviolet Radiometer uses its 12 channels to measure the amount of radiation (or energy) that comes directly from the Sun (using a diffuser) and how much energy is reflected back from the Earth. This information is integrated into a scientific model that calculates the concentration and distribution of ozone in the stratosphere. However, the primary use of the data from the Solar Backscatter Ultraviolet Radiometer is determining the vertical distribution of ozone over the global surface – how it varies at various distances from the Earth’s surface up to approximately 79 kilometers (or 49 miles). The instrument also provides for the generation of layer ozone values, which represent the amount of ozone found in a “chunk” of the atmosphere. Each channel on the Solar Backscatter Ultraviolet Radiometer detects a particular near-ultraviolet wavelength whose intensity depends on the ozone density at a particular height in the atmosphere. It is nadir pointing, which means that it always points directly toward the center of the Earth and does not scan the atmosphere as the other POES instruments do. The Solar Backscatter Ultraviolet Radiometer has a device called a Cloud Cover Radiometer that provides information on the amount of cloud cover in an image and removes the effects of the clouds from the data.Advanced Data Collection System provided by CNES in France measures environmental factors such as atmospheric temperature and pressure and the velocity and direction of the ocean and wind currents. Data is collected from transmitting devices on platforms in the form of buoys, free-floating balloons and remote weather stations. Transmitters are even placed on migratory animals, sea turtles, bears and other animals. Data is transmitted to the spacecraft for storage and subsequent transmission from the satellite to the ground. The stored data is transmitted once per orbit. Subsequently, the data is sent to the French Centre at the Centre National D’ Etudes Spatiales and the Service Argos Facility in Lanham, Md., for processing, distribution to users and storage for archival purposes. Search and Rescue instruments on-board NOAA-N Prime consist of a Search and Rescue Repeater built by Department of National Defense in Canada and a Search and Rescue Processor built by Centre National d’Etudes Spatiales (Toulouse, France). These instruments detect distress calls sent from emergency beacons on-board aircraft and boats and carried by people in remote areas. The instruments on the spacecraft transmit the data to ground receiving stations or local user terminals where the location of the emergency signals is determined by Doppler processing. The Local User Terminals forward the information to a Mission Control Center where further processing of the information occurs. The information is then sent to a Rescue Coordination Center that affects the search and rescue. Since its inception in 1982, the COSPAS-SARSAT system has contributed to saving more than 24,500 lives. The Search and Rescue Repeater accepts signals from emergency ground transmitters at 121.5 MHz, 243 MHz and 406.05 MHz and uptranslates, multiplexes and transmits these signals at L-band to the local user terminals. The Search and Rescue Processor is a receiver and processor that receives 406.05-MHz signals from emergency ground transmitters and demodulates, processes, stores and relays the data to the next local user terminal that is within range of the Search and Rescue Repeater. Only the 406.05 MHZ service will be supported as of February 1, 2009.

The NPP spacecraft. Credit: Ball AerospaceThe NPP spacecraft will ride a United Launch Alliance Delta 2 rocket into its orbital vantage point, looping from pole to pole some 512 miles up.Built in Colorado by Ball Aerospace, NPP is the experimental precursor to the planned next-generation of weather and climate spacecraft that NASA and NOAA have begun developing, known as the Joint Polar Satellite System.”It will fly five instruments — VIIRS, CrIS, ATMS, OMPS and CERES — which will collect data on atmospheric and sea-surface temperatures, humidity soundings, land and ocean biological productivity, and cloud and aerosol properties, along with Earth radiation budget data. These data will contribute to long-term data records in support of monitoring climate trends,” said Andrew Carson, NASA’s NPP program executive.Weighing 2.5 tons and measuring 13 feet long and 8.5 feet wide, the craft has a hydrazine fuel tank at its core for feeding 8 maneuvering thrusters. It uses Firewire for onboard data transfers, communicates with the ground via S- and X-band frequencies and runs on solar power from its three-panel wing that gets deployed minutes after reaching orbit. “Data will be transmitted to the ground-receive station in Svalbard, Norway, and brought back to the U.S. via fiber-optic cables. From there it will be sent to both the Air Force Weather Agency and the NOAA Satellite Operations Facility where it will be processed and provided to scientists and meteorologists around the world,” Carson said.Four of the instruments are updated versions of previous spaceborne devices, while the fifth comes from earlier NASA observatories. This illustration depicts the key features of NPP. Credit: NASAThe Visible/Infrared Imager Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) will produce those familiar pictures of clouds, plus take sea-surface temperatures for hurricane forecasting and perform land and ocean color surveys.This advanced environmental instrument is 10 years in the making.”It provides data products that result in action,” said Warren Flynn, VIIRS program director at Raytheon.”It provides four times better spectral resolution, three times better spatial resolution, seven times better sea-surface temperatures. It has a fully calibrated day-night band that gives us better weather coverage at night. It is taking visible radiometric imagery to the next level.”The Advanced Technology Microwave Sounder (ATMS) is another state-of-the-art instrument representing next-generation technology built smaller and less massive than before.”What’s unique about microwave sounders is (they) can see through clouds. We see all the way to ground. We provide that water vapor, temperature, pressure profile from all the way on altitude to the ground,” said Stephen Opel, civil space program manager at Northrop Grumman.”It is a significant amount of data that comes up through a 1.1-degree soda straw from the ground.”The Cross-track Infrared Sounder (CrIS) is half the size and uses half the power of comparable spectrometers previously flown in space.”CrIS is a hyperspectral infrared sounder, which is a real fancy way of saying it takes a lot of channels of data (from) a very compact infrared device. It is the next in a long line of sounders that ITT has built,” said Mark Poling, CrIS program manager at ITT Geospatial Systems.”It provides data to measure water vapor, temperature and pressure profiles from the ground all the way up to many thousands of feet. That allows numerical weather predictions to be much more accurate.”The Ozone Mapping and Profiler Suite (OMPS) will provide three views to continue the long-term data record of ozone measurements from satellites.”It is called a ‘suite’ because there are three distinct instruments aboard. One is called the Limb Profiler — it looks off the backend of the spacecraft looking at the orbit where we’ve just passed…The other two instruments are nadir that will look straight down from the bottom of the spacecraft. Total Column has a very wide field of view — over 100 degrees — and Profiler is a much smaller field of view — around 16 degrees. Together these provide a total column of ozone from the stratosphere all the way down to the Earth,” said Joan Howard, program manager at Ball Aerospace.”We also provide countless data modes so scientists will be able to mine the data for trace gas analyses and other things that we as engineers haven’t even invented yet for scientists.” The Clouds and the Earth Radiant Energy System (CERES) is the one instrument aboard NPP that is borrowed from earlier satellite missions to take the planet’s temperature and measure the Sun’s radiation reflected off Earth.”CERES monitors this radiance in three distinct wavelength bands — a shortwave band that includes all of the solar reflected light, a longwave band that measures the thermal emissions and then a total channel that goes from the ultraviolet to the far-infrared that measures the entire radiance of the Earth,” said Mark Folkman, Northrop Grumman’s director of products and sensing.”These three sensor channels are scanned back and forth across the surface of the Earth at 30 km of spatial resolution day-in-and-day-out, day-and-night, all around the globe. The trick here is that measurement is done with an unprecedented amount of absolute radiometric accuracy. By measuring the reflected sunlight thermal emission on a global scale, scientists are allowed to monitor the temperature of the planet and validate the models that calculate the effects of clouds driving planetary heating or cooling.”

    STORY WRITTEN FOR & USED WITH PERMISSIONPosted: September 11, 2006The shuttle Atlantis is closing in on the interational space station this morning for a linkup that will kick off a busy week of work to attach and deploy a $372 million set of solar arrays. Docking is expected around 6:46 a.m.”Welcome to a wonderful day in micro gravity and thanks for your excellent work!” flight controllers said in a morning message to the crew. “Today your extraterrestrial peers are looking forward to greeting you and to getting your help to upgrade their home! Have a smooth docking!”Commander Brent Jett is flying a standard rendezvous profile, approaching the lab complex from behind and below. The terminal phase of the rendezvous procedure will begin a few minutes past 4 a.m. with the shuttle trailing the station by about 9.2 miles.On final approach, at a distance of about 600 feet directly below the station, with Atlantis’ nose facing forward and its open payload bay facing the station, Jett will carry out the slow 360-degree rotational pitch maneuver, or RPM, that will point the belly of the shuttle at the station.As the shuttle’s underside rotates into view, Expedition 13 commander Pavel Vinogradov and flight engineer Jeff Williams will photograph Atlantis’ belly with handheld digital cameras equipped with 400mm and 800mm lenses. The former has a resolution of three inches while the latter has a resolution of one inch.Imagery from the station will be downlinked to Houston for detailed analysis.”The RPM maneuver, or rendezvous pitch maneuver, is actually very visually dramatic,” Jett said in a NASA interview. “But from a flying standpoint, it’s not really any more difficult than any other type flying we do for rendezvous. The real significance of the RPM is that it allows the station crew to take photos of the underbelly tile areas of the orbiter, which we don’t inspect on flight day two. On flight day two, we’re looking primarily at leading edge of the wing so this is a whole other area of the thermal protection system, which allows the folks on the ground to analyze for any damage.”If for some reason we can’t do the RPM, it’s a significant impact to our mission because we still have to, at some point, go under there and look at the tile. The RPM is a very, very efficient way for us to do a little flip maneuver, as we approach the station and allow the station crew members to use an 800mm lens to photograph all the tile and send it down to the ground and let them analyze it. So it’s a real important maneuver.”After completing the pitch-around, Jett will position Atlantis about 400 feet directly ahead of the space station with the shuttle’s nose facing deep space and its cargo bay facing the lab complex. He then will guide the spacecraft to a docking with a pressurized mating adaptor attached to the front of the Destiny laboratory module.After leak checks, Vinogradov, Williams and European Space Agency astronaut Thomas Reiter, ferried to the station aboard Discovery in July, will welcome the Atlantis crew aboard the station and provide a safety briefing before all nine astronauts get down to work.”Traditionally, space shuttle crews have kind of taken the day off after docking,” pilot Chris Ferguson said in a NASA interview. “It’s typically a very long and very busy day. They might do some general transfer operations after docking, but they would kind of pause and take the night off and begin the heavy construction the next day.”What we’ve elected to do … is to get right into the payload operations shortly after docking. So about two hours after we’re together, hard-mated and the hatches are open, Dan (Burbank) and I are going to extract the payload from the payload bay. Once again, this payload is huge, it occupies the entire payload bay and weighs about 36,000 pounds, so it’s no small operation. There are some areas where the clearances get rather tight.”Burbank, operating the arm, will have just one inch of clearance between the P3/P4 solar array truss segment and the OBSS heat shield inspection boom mounted along the right wall of the payload bay. As he is lifting the payload straight up from its perch in the cargo bay, Burbank will have to jog it slightly to the left to avoid the OBSS. It is a delicate procedure because of the payload’s inertia and the need to avoid any overshoots that could cause it to hit anything.Assuming all goes well, Burbank will position P3/P4 over the left wing of the shuttle. At that point, Canadian astronaut Steve MacLean, operating the space station’s more massive arm from inside the Destiny laboratory module, will grapple P3/P4 in a handoff maneuver and Burbank will release the truss with the shuttle’s arm.The Canadarm 2 crane will be positioned at work site 7 on the station’s P1 truss element, “which is as far as you can go on the space station with the station arm, or Canadarm 2,” MacLean said in an interview. “I’m prepositioned so I can accept the handoff. Dan will get it into position and then I’ll go in for the handshake when both arms are holding it. Dan will let go and we’ll park there over night.”MacLean said the handoff will mark a proud moment for Canada, which provided both robot arms and the Space Vision System that will be used Tuesday to precisely position P3/P4 for attachment to the station’s truss.”Don’t be surprised if you hear a call out on the ‘great Canadian handshake,'” MacLean joked at a pre-flight news conference. “But we are handshaking with a payload that is impressive, very high tech, that’s going to carry us forward to having the best orbiting laboratory in the world.”Pulling P3/P4 from the cargo bay starts a 35-hour timer. That’s how long the crew has to get the payload attached to the P1 truss and wired into the electrical system to power critical heaters. But the 13 umbilicals needed to route power and data to and from the new truss element will not be hooked up until Tuesday during a spacewalk by Tanner and Heidemarie Stefanyshyn-Piper.Instead, P3/P4 will be left hanging out over the left wing of the shuttle Monday night, safely attached to the station’s robot arm, while the astronauts wind down from a very busy third day in space.Here is an updated timeline of today’s activities (in EDT and mission elapsed time):EDTDDHHMMEVENT__________________________________________________04:00 AM011645ISS: Verify RPM photo setup ready04:08 AM011653TI rendezvous rocket firing04:20 AM011705ISS in attitude04:44 AM011729Sunset05:07 AM011752Range: 10,000 feet05:15 AM011800Range: 5,000 feet05:17 AM011802Sunrise05:20 AM011805Begin final approach05:21 AM011806Range: 3,000 feet05:25 AM011810MC-4 rendezvous burn05:29 AM011814Range: 1,500 feet05:31 AM011816RPM start window open05:34 AM011819Range: 1,000 feet05:37 AM011822KU antenna to low power05:38 AM011823+R bar arrival directly below ISS05:43 AM011828Range: 600 feet05:45 AM011830Rendezvous pitch maneuver05:46 AM011831Noon05:53 AM011838End pitch maneuver05:54 AM011839RPM full window close05:56 AM011841Start pitch up maneuver to +V bar in front of ISS06:02 AM011847RPM start window close06:07 AM011852+V bar arrival; range: 310 feet in front of ISS06:08 AM011853Range: 300 feet06:12 AM011857Range: 250 feet06:16 AM011901Sunset06:16 AM011901Range: 200 feet06:19 AM011904Range: 170 feet06:21 AM011906Range: 150 feet06:25 AM011910Range: 100 feet06:28 AM011913Range: 75 feet06:32 AM011917Range: 50 feet06:35 AM011920Range: 30 feet; start stationkeeping06:40 AM011925End stationkeeping; push to dock06:45 AM011930Range: 10 feet06:46 AM011931Atlantis docks with space station06:49 AM011934Sunrise07:05 AM011950Hatch leak checks07:20 AM012005Group B computer powerdown07:35 AM012020Orbiter docking system preps for entry07:55 AM012040Hatches opened08:05 AM012050Shuttle robot arm (SRMS) grapples P3/P408:20 AM012105Welcome aboard!08:30 AM012115Safety briefing08:55 AM012140Station arm (SSRMS> configured08:55 AM012140Post-docking EVA transfer09:25 AM012210SRMS unberths P3/410:00 AM012245Mission status briefing on NASA TV10:15 AM012300EVA tools configured10:45 AM012330SRMS hands P3/P4 to SSRMS10:55 AM012340SRMS ungrapples P3/411:30 AM020015EVA camera setup11:55 AM020040EVA-1: Procedures review02:40 PM020325EVA-1: Tanner, Piper campout prebreathe03:25 PM020410EVA-1: 10.2 depress03:45 PM020430ISS crew sleep begins04:15 PM020500STS crew sleep begins05:00 PM020545Daily video highlights reel on NASA TV06:00 PM020645Post-MMT status briefing on NASA TVTanner and Piper will spend the night sealed up in the station’s Quest airlock module as part of a new “campout” procedure.

MacLean, meanwhile, will return to the Destiny module, take control of Canadarm 2 and move P3/P4 up to a pre-install position just a few inches from the left end of the station’s main truss.Motor-driven bolts will then engage to lock the new P3/P4 truss in place, clearing the way for Tanner and Piper to begin a critical spacewalk to wire it into the station’s electrical system, to remove launch restraints and to begin preparations for solar array deployment Thursday.

    RL10 shutdown in parking orbitRocketcams offer dazzling views of Atlas 5 launch SPACEFLIGHT NOWPosted: February 26, 2012 When the largest and most powerful Atlas rocket in history thundered to space Friday, three onboard video cameras captured the stunning views of what it’s like to ride the vehicle off the launch pad and into orbit. The Atlas 5 rocket ascends from Complex 41.See a Three tiny cameras, built by Ecliptic Enterprises Corp., beamed back the imagery as the United Launch Alliance Atlas 5 departed Cape Canaveral’s Complex 41 at 5:15 p.m. EST and headed due east on its climb into a preliminary Earth orbit 12 minutes later carrying a U.S. Navy’s mobile communications satellite.Check out these amazing videos of the launch, which are presented here for Spaceflight Now+Plus with the live liftoff audio. (Subscriptions are the only source of income that keep this website alive) Additional coverage for subscribers:VIDEO:RIDE ATLAS 5 ROCKET THROUGH THE FIRST STAGE VIDEO:CENTAUR UPPER STAGE BURNS TO REACH ORBIT A pair of cameras were mounted on the exterior of the first stage, one pointed downward to watch two of the strap-on solid rocket boosters and another facing upward to view the nose cone jettisoning and the Centaur upper stage separating to ignite its main engine.A third camera was affixed to the Centaur with an ideal view of the RL10 engine burning while looking back at Earth.It was the 105th mission for Ecliptic’s “rocketcam” program, including 96 rocket launches and 9 aboard satellites. The cameras were used throughout the final phase of the space shuttle program and others are orbiting the Moon today on NASA’s twin GRAIL spacecraft to image the lunar surface as part of an educational project with Sally Ride.The footage of Friday’s launch begins with the Earth-facing camera on the first stage showing the launch pad water deluge system activating to flood the site for sound-dampening as the RD-180 main engine roars to life, shaking off layers of ice from the liquid oxygen tank. The Aerojet solid boosters then light, propelling the giant 206-foot-tall rocket off the mobile launching platform in scant seconds.A roll maneuver and pitchover is commanded to position the rocket in the correct orientation for its flight downrange over the Atlantic Ocean atop two-and-a-half-million pounds of thrust. Solid rocket booster separation.The solids did their burning in about 90 seconds, then peeled away to lessen the rocket’s weight about 30 miles in the sky as the first stage’s kerosene-fed engine continued to fire.Just over three minutes into the launch, the space-facing camera witnessed the bulbous nose cone that shrouded the Navy satellite payload during ascent through the atmosphere separating to fall away.That same camera, a minute later, showed the Centaur flying free from the core stage and igniting for the first of three planned firings to heave the 15,000-pound spacecraft into the proper orbit.A switch to Centaur’s aft-facing camera then occurred to provide a dramatic movie of what riding the venerable upper stage is like as the vehicle flew into a beautiful sunset over the Central Atlantic while accelerating to orbital velocity.The rock-steady stage and its dependable Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne RL10 fired for eight minutes to achieve a parking orbit around Earth of 90 by 337 nautical miles high, tiled 28 degrees to the equator.It was the 200th launch of a Centaur dating back 50 years.At that point in the flight, the video was finished.
