Full STS-93 Mission Control Loops - Draft
Some of the data in the above video I don’t believe to be correct. I was going to hold on publishing this until I could get it all sorted, but I think the community may be able to help. Certain things like the countdown calls are likely from the ground, not the vehicle so I just need to know what position to tie those too. Some calls overlap and I’m missing. If you see an edit that needs to be made, please help out! Leave the change in the comments below and I’ll work to update the video with all of the notes. Together I hope we can create the best STS-93 mission control loops video on the Internet! - Jami STS-93 was one of the most dynamic successful shuttle flights, ever. From the moment the vehicle lifted off the pad things started to go wrong, but the trained NASA Mission Control operators kept their cool, worked the issues and just over 8 minutes after liftoff the Shuttle crew made it safely to space. To understand exactly what happened, Wayne Hale has a great blog post here: https://waynehale.wordpress.com/2014/10/26/sts-93-we-dont-need-any-more-of-those/ This is a video with the live launch broadcast video, transcribed operator comms and the operator audio.
