 The Hard Road to Space
The erosion was the deepest experienced in flight in a case field joint, until the loss of the space shuttle Challenger on flight STS 51-L. Mercury MA-6.
Experienced erosion of the right-hand nozzle primary O-ring and the first case-to-case field joint O-ring anomaly since mission STS 51-C. There was blow-by past the primary O-rings in the centre and aft field joints on the left-hand SRM.
Crew nearly froze to death after an emergency landing in a lake in a blizzard at -20 deg C. It took hours before the capsule could be dragged to shore.

 Strange Shuttle Sights: Unearthly and Mundane
STS 41-D (1984) has views of the meter-long "space icicle" that had tobe knocked loose from the shuttle's water dump port.
STS 75 (1996) has great views of the broken tether that led to the loss of a satellite, but the weirdest sequence shows a cloud of ice crystals floating ahead of and below the shuttle in the dark, flickering randomly in the moonlight.
The notorious STS 48 and STS 80 videos, for example, share some common factors not known to amateur investigators, and these factors provide convincing proof of their routine nature.

 Space Shuttle program - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
To the extent that the hydrogen and oxygen are not needed, they are used up deliberately to allow the ET to be discarded safely.
The company that secured the SRB contract, Morton Thiokol, is based in Utah, necessitating the modular design that contributed to the Challenger loss.
Ironically, the U.S. aerospace mergers of the 1990s mean that the vast majority of the STS contracts are now held by a single company (Boeing).

The ATS/STS 80 (HD) observation telescopes set the highest standards among telescopes in this category.
Even with the easy-to-handle fully rubberized armouring, the ATA/STS 80 (HD) are by far the lightest of the larger observation telescopes.
Thanks to a recalculated optical system, they offer a precise observation of detail, optimum edge-to-edge images and almost 100 per cent colour fidelity with an extremely wide field of view, thereby achieving a revolutionary image quality.

 Motor Boating Magazine - Features - Riding High
A tweaked version of the single-engine X-80 (see our review in April), the X-80 STS is the first twin-engine inboard towboat on the market, providing more muscle and get-home reliability to those who want to tackle big lakes, bays and coastal waters—places where most watersports boats don’t dare go.
Though the X-80 STS seats a crowd of 15 and holds about as much cargo as a FedEx truck, we also had a Pursuit 2670 center console with us (look for a review of this new boat in a future issue).
The big V-8s sprang to life, and Zane, arguably one of the best wake boarder’s in the world, soon launched off the tall, clean wake into aerial acrobatics like he was part Olympic gymnast and part flying fish.

 STS-63 Anomalies
In later 1999, I started communicating with James Oberg (Computer Systems Analyst) about our different POVs regarding the STS-48 (and 80) footage where a white object drifting in dark space amongst a field of similar-looking white objects seems to be "fired" upon and object is seen taking off at a high rate of speed.
I could not accept the official explanations that the objects were ice crystals illuminated by the sun and affected by various Shuttle firing mechanisms.
My opinion of the STS-48 footage is shared by what seems to be the majority of people with at least one Ph.D. (Jack Kasher) which puts us in good company.
