    use of extensive hypervelocity testing to understand the response of spacecraft structures to meteoroid impact, and to identify what needed to change in order to meet requirements. This process is followed to this day by all space-faring nations. In , NASA Headquarters identified a need for a “monograph” describing the meteoroid. FIGURE MMOD impact damage to window #6 on space shuttle Endeavour during STS mission in November The impact damage measures mm by mm (measured parallel to the glass surface), with a depth of mm. According to NASA’s Orbital Debris Program Office, this is the largest shuttle window impact ever observed.

    Post-flight surveys of meteoroid and orbital debris (M/OD) impacts on the Space Shuttle Orbiter are conducted to identify damage caused by hypervelocity impacts from M/OD and to identify the source (i.e., whether meteoroid or orbital debris) of the projectiles responsible.   Cumulative impact and window removal rates. Space Shuttle Windows (8) LAB RESULTS Hypervelocity tests conducted at the NASA/JSC Hypervelocity Impact Research Laboratory (HIRL) have provided data on impact craters created by firing projectiles ranging in size from to icrons into test disks cut from shuttle thermal panes.

    NASA, for its part, had every reason to be confident about this mission. At the time, Challenger was the most-flown orbiter in NASA’s fleet. Sadly, the Challenger made history in a different way that morning, entering the books as NASA’s first space shuttle disaster. Shuttle. Effects of MOD Impact on RCC Panels. There are 22 wing leading edge panels on each wing of the Space Shuttle Orbiters. Each panel is made for a specific location. The panel shown here in the photograph is made for location 17 on the right wing.

A statistical analysis of the NASA Space Shuttle Hypervelocity Impact Database to find correlations between meteoroid and orbital debris (M/OD) impacts on the shuttle orbiter fleet and specific mission parameters; Inclination, Altitude, Duration and Year.

M/OD impact data, regardless of location, particle type or mission was examined first. A statistical analysis of the NASA Space Shuttle Hypervelocity Impact Database to find correlations between meteoroid and orbital debris (M/OD) impacts on the shuttle orbiter fleet. (2) NASA/JSC, Houston, TX,[email protected] (3) NASA/JSC, Houston, TX,@ With three flights remaining on the manifest, the shuttle impact hypervelocity database has over entries.

The data is currently divided into tables for crew module windows, payload bay door radiators.

SHUTTLE HYPERVELOCITY IMPACT DATABASE IAC 3 - 7 Oct Hypervelocity Impact NASA Johnson Space Center Technology Group Impact features down to μm in diameter were easy to detect on the vehicle with clean windows and good lighting.

New impacts on W1 and W6 (LH & RH sides) displace plume deposits from Solid Rocket Booster separation. The Shuttle Hypervelocity Impact Database documents damage features on each Orbiter thought to be from micrometeoroids (MM) or orbital debris (OD).

Data is divided into tables for crew module windows, payload bay door radiators and thermal protection systems along with other.

Research was performed in the area of hypervelocity impact physics to analyze the damage that occurs when a space vehicle is impacted by a micro-meteoroid or a space debris particle. Specifically, an impact analysis of over test specimens was per- formed to generate a Hypervelocity Impact Damage Database.

The WSTF Hypervelocity Impact (HVI) Testing Program assesses candidate shield materials using two-stage light-gas guns (LGG). These guns shoot projectiles at hypervelocities.

hypervelocity impact tests on the space shuttle wing leading edge. Hypervelocity impact tests were conducted to determine if Micro-Meteoroid/Orbital Debris impacts could be reliably detected and located using simple passive ultrasonic methods.

The objective of Targets A-1, A-2, and B-2 was to study hypervelocity impacts through. The Shuttle Hypervelocity Impact Database documents damage features on each Orbiter from micrometeoroids (MM) and orbital debris (OD).
