SPACE  SHUTTLE  M I S C.  M E M O R A B I L I A

 

Space Shuttle

 

Since 1981, NASA space shuttles have been rocketing from the Florida coast into Earth orbit. The five orbiters — Columbia, Challenger, Discovery, Atlantis and Endeavour — have flown more than 130 times, carrying over 350 people into space and travelling more than half a billion miles, more than enough to reach Jupiter.

Designed to return to Earth and land like a giant glider, the shuttle was the world's first reusable space vehicle. More than all of that, though, the shuttle program expanded the limits of human achievement and broadened our understanding of our world.

STS-1 Flight Data File Ascent Checklist
 Final, PCN-1, March 3, 1981
Includes page change notices 2 - 5

Maintained on his MCC console by
STS-1 (Silver) Flight Director Neil Hutchinson


This Ascent Checklist is best described using Neil's own words, ".....as a crew document  that would  have been used by me during traiining. It was not used during the actual flight but WAS KEPT on the console" 

 

You will hear throughout (though does warrant mentioning) that MCC Console materials from an historic missiion such as STS-1 are highly desirable and particularly when they come from the Launch Flight Director himself. 

 

This ascent checklist is close to 1" thick and contains 22 tabbed sections as issued.  Neil Hutcinson has marked the cover in his own hand with "Hutchinson" and as you can see in the cover scan and has also indicated the revisions included.  There are a number of hand annotations on various pages throughout the actual checklist.  It has a plastic cover with an STS sticker at it's center and is held together by three rings.  

 

This item will be accompanied by a COA hand signed by Neil Hutchinson.

STS-1 Flight Data File Ascent Checklist (AOA EDW)
Final, March 4, 1981
Includes page change notices 1 - 4
Maintained on his MCC console by
STS-1 (Silver) Flight Director Neil Hutchinson

 

This abort checklist  (AOA EDW) is best described using Neil's own words, ".....as a crew document carried onboard but would have been used by me during training.  Abort once around is a rare event and therefore this checklist was not referenced often. It was not used during the flight but WAS KEPT on the console throughout" 

 

As defined, abort once around (AOA) was available if the shuttle was unable to reach a stable orbit but had sufficient velocity to circle the Earth once and land.  That re-entry in the case of this checklist would have occured at Edwards Air Froce Base (EDW)

 

MCC Console materials from an historic missiion such as STS-1 are highly desirable and particularly when they come from the Launch Flight Director himself. 

 

This abort checklist measures 6" x 8", is 1/4" thick with 4 tabbed sections as issued.  Neil Hutchinson has marked the cover in his own hand with "Hutchinson" and as you can see in the cover scan has also indicated the revisions included.  Some hand annotations are found on various pages in the actual checklist.  Origionally held together by three rings.which are not present.

This beautiful medallion produced by Winco International, NASA's supplier of mission insignia lapel pins throughout the course of the shuttle program, feature in full color the space agency's Space Shuttle Commemorative Emblem as designed by Blake Dumesnil but otherwise differ in design and inscription.

The NASA Award Medallion (1.75" diameter) is "in recognition of all who played a vital role in supporting the shuttle program." In addition, this limited edition medallion celebrates the program's 135 missions during 30 years of innovation and service.

Metal ingots produced for this program were flown on a space shuttle mission and then included in production so each medallion would contain flown material.

On the reverse, a space shuttle launch is rendered dimensionally in antique silver. The award medallion was designed by NASA artist Sean Collins.

Seeds In Space II - FLOWN aboard STS-86 (Atlantis) from September 25th - October 6, 1997.  This is a complete package including seeds with full instructions that show their history and how one may conduct their own plant biology experiment.  One pack was flown, one pack was kept on Earth as a control group and one set was placed in an airtight container and kept underwater in the Scott Carpenter Analog Station in Key Largo, Fl. These will sometime show up on Ebay but generally only a single seed pack.  This is the entire experiment.  Very interesting and worth adding to any space memorabilia collection.
