Did it fuckin matter if the goddamned equipment didn't work well????
Would they have helped them live at 12,000 miles an hour?

What bullshit. The restraints and helmets obviously worked, else they
wouldn't have made the launch. The fact is, the space frame tore apart due
to structural failure from the plasma and high heat during re-entry. The 5
on board computers tried to adjust the course of the shuttle, unfortunately
they had too much yaw, and the left wing was ripped off, causing them to
come in on a flat spin at over mach 20. Sad as it was, this is what really
happened, and the news has the gall to claim that NASA said it was due to
restraints, seats, and helmets? WTF?!!!!

Last words were "Things are heating up" That was the final words NASA
received from the ship. Unfortunately, they knew the tires were destroyed
which meant that craft would crash on landing & they would all die so they
did know in fact they were all going to die yet they were not sure if the
temps being reported on the left wing which was actually what caused the
tire failure were real or just computer mistake. It seems to have been only
seconds from the time the Pilot knew about the tires from the time he said
things were heating up as in it was hot in there. Just a second after he
said that, the ship disintegrated so they felt no physical pain but how
many seconds of emotional pain did they have? 10, 30 or 60? We will never

Seat restraints can only do so much. Describing what happened and how
things failed does not mean there was a design failure in layman's terms.

That's not what the NASA report says. It notes that the helmet design and
strap design did not prevent lethal trauma following the breakup, but that
the crew were at that point either already dead or irretrievably
unconscious due to the rapid depressurisation event preceding it. The
equipment as such worked well within its design specifications. The
problem was the hole in the wing...

The sad thing is..and the real truth is..them poor ppl didn't need to be up
there in that shuttle at all anyway coz the TR-3Bs been flying for our
governments for years now, and its the TR-3Bs what's eventually spelt the
end of the shuttle program, much better stats and safety, its just that
until DISCLOSURE none of them governments will admit it?..so none of the
them poor doomed ppl even should have been put in that position at all.
Lying governments think they save lives through there lies..but they COST
lives to... RIP to all.

Alright AP, "failed" in engineering terms does not mean that they didn't
work well. It means that they broke after being subjected to forces well
beyond what they were designed for. If your skull failed after being run
over by a steam roller you would not say that your bones didn't work well.

Only in NASA. You see, here is all the evidence you need to understand that
the United States will never get Americans back on the Moon or to Mars:

The shuttle disintegrates around the astronauts in a fiery explosion, but
the geniuses at NASA surmises that it's the inadequate seat restraints,
suits and helmets that ultimately sealed their doom.

Автор carsearch2001 ( назад)
Lack of cabin pressure? They were so high that they exploded as if in
space (vacuum)? Plus flying at over Mach 5 (my guess); man you would have
to be very prepared for that to even survive for a few seconds.

The space shuttle's cabin itself came apart in this accident, and
disintegration was severe enough that the pressure suits would have had to
not only be designed to withstands the rigors, and heat of reentry without
the protection of the shuttle, but the suits would have also needs to be
designed to protect the crew from the crush, and impact injuries that they
no doubt incurred in that accident. At the end of the day the suits were
only designed to protect the crew from decompression. Even if the
restraints held, and the suits were designed to protect the crew from
direct exposure to reentry conditions the cabin itself still came apart,
and no !matter how you look at it that would have been no surviving that

...Ya think? Fuqin MORONS. They weren't designed to help the astronauts
survive a catastrophic hull failure and break up hundreds of thousands of

Lethal trauma!? Really!!!! This shows how moronic the associated press is.
Cause of death was incineration, if they were killed any other way before
they were cremated it would have been a blessing to them.

Автор Hitch Slap ( назад)
The astronauts were dead when they left the launch pad. NASA knew it.
Restraints, suits, and helmets are irrelevant, and a distraction from the
fact that it was a doomed flight before it ever reached space.

Or maybe they all died in the FUCKING EXPLOSION. I doubt any amount of

As much as I loved the Shuttle program, it was in my opinion, like putting
space on pause. Sure they delivered all kinds of stuff into space, but as
we know now, it was nothing more then an expensive taxi..

about "Space" and the shuttle, and asked him if the shuttle could be used
to deliver a craft to the moon... he said "The shuttle cant land on the

Not my question and not the answer I wanted... In any case, sending
Satellites into space is old hat, I guess my issue was why we were staying
in low orbit.
And now since the Shuttle is gone, we seem to be working past low orbit and
thinking larger. I only wish we did this in the 80s, we as in humans, would
be so far ahead.

Just reading the Columbia report. 19th Feb 2004 was US Core Complete day
which NASA was racing headlong towards which meant launch of Node 2 payload
for completion of the USA part of ISS initial assembly.

Launch timeframes were compressed massively, faults in previous flights not
closed off, workforce numbers had bern culled and pressure was immense on
all launches leading up to.19th February. Only 2 orbiters were available
and Columbia was going to be modified after STS-107 to be able to fly to
the ISS. This all made safety decisions very contentious points as they
would have affected meeting 19th February date. Worries about unresolved
investigations into causes of ongoing foam debris were effectively passed
over in a blind race to deliver Node 2 on time.

Most likely, the crew felt and experienced no pain. The instant any part of
the crew compartment was opened to the wind stream, it was instant death
for them. A nano-second. You're talking about a 27000 mph superheated
wind that's like a blast furnace. A little less than being at Hiroshima
ground zero when the A-Bomb detonated. There is nothing that could
withstand that force and heat. Helmets, suits, seat belts... wouldn't
matter. It all vaporizes in an instant.

You would think they would design the shuttle so the main crew compartment
could be a separate reentry vehicle that could continue on it's own after
the rest of the shuttle deteriorated away.

Автор hebber1961 ( назад)
I'm sure the windshield didn't work well either and is as revelant as the
seat restraints in that kind of accident. Even if the helmets mattered,
the retrieved video shows them with open face shields just prior.
The only thing that MIGHT have saved them at that point is a sealed cabin
capsule with it's own system and parachute.

It would be smartest to have a MOON base before any attempts at MARS or
COMETS or ASTEROIDS. Putting our equipment on the MOON FIRST for several
YEARS of testing and use and will expose errors, weaknesses, and stimulate
new ideas plus allow Lunar exploration far beyond any so far.

I remember Challenger and I remember Columbia. Yes they knew the risks
involved and that just makes it more painful. Space exploration should be
front and center when it comes to government spending. Finding advances in
medicine and looking out for the those less fortunate should be a given
(sad it's not), but space exploration is what gives life a zest it can't
get elsewhere. We are a curios species and we're made to explore. It's our
best trait. It brings us together and gives us a purpose.

It is the big orange fuel tank that has foam covering, it is so that the
liquid oxygen/liquid hydrogen fuel mixture does not evaporate in the heat
as quickly. Also, Titanium is not very strong unless it is alloyed, people
like it due to its good strength-to-weight ratio but it is not Adamantium.
Also, at those speeds titanium would rip apart just as easily as anything
else. The Shuttle itself IS made of something other than foam. I can go
into more detail on the shuttles design if you want.

When the hole in the wing started to prevent the shuttle from flying
normally the onboard computer started firing its jet engines (not the three
big ones). This was supposed to happen, but not as frequently as it did.
During the final period before main veicle body break-up the jets were
firing continously meaning that the computer was desperately trying to
maintain the shuttles attitude. When it failed the shutlle spun out of
control and broke up. This was when the astronauts died.

Автор Michael Ambech ( назад)
Wouldn't work... the shuttle or any other vehicle on reentry would be going
way too fast. They were too high going way too fast... Failure during
reentry equals death sadly...

Автор Michael Ambech ( назад)
No there is not... The minute the shuttle starts its engines to slow down
it begins to fall... Once they've done that, there is no way back - unless
of course they very quickly fire the engines again.

Автор RunPJs ( назад)
They would need a Dr Who spacesuit to survive that!

Автор danix454 ( назад)
The air pressure was unequal and caused the movement as air (friction) and
gases got into the hole that was made on the left side, which caused it to
roc. NASA was negligent. Engineers were worried about the foam debris - ice
is what did the Challenger in - and the flight director said there was no
issue, so there was no investigation. They already slowed the craft down
sufficiently enough for re-entry which is standard, but if no one
acknowledged or saw a problem, what could have been done?

Автор Robert Gift ( назад)
"Foam"? From what? Not ice? I would not have expected initial burning
re-entry to cause the shuttle to violently move. (Upper atmosphere gasses
not dense enough.) I am also dismayed that they did not perform an EVA? to
examine critical fragile areas for damage. I would expect such every time a
shuttle attained orbit. Is there no way to re-enter at slower speeds at
which one will not burn up?

Автор danix454 ( назад)
Also (adding to what I said), they stated that unconscious bodies would've
been flying everywhere while the craft tumbled, tore apart, and then they
all would have just burnt up rather quickly and painlessly. Keep in mind a
torso/chest was found, torn in half. Another person's thigh was found with
the thin skin cleanly torn off. This lets you know that they were
ejaculated from the craft; some of them were found burnt up. So they were
basically shredded, and disposed of by either wind or fire.

Автор danix454 ( назад)
Oh, yes. NASA was a bit negligent in dealing with the situation - they knew
two days or so after launch that the foam had hit the left wing #8 panel.
This often happened, however. Foam debris would hit many of their shuttles,
but it was fine, because it never caused damage. This time it did. They
would have repaired the tiles if NASA knew, but they didn't know it had
done lethal damage. Most likely, they were just panicking as their shuttle
rolled/shifted side to side, and then were knocked out.

Автор Robert Gift ( назад)
"Robert, there was no way they would have survived this incident. They died
in a few seconds, and in those last few seconds of their lives, they didn't
know anything was wrong." Thank you. But sadly, they had time to know and
some likely felt horrible burning while still conscious. After pressure
loss, how soon to complete unconsciousness? Could another less efficient
and more risky attitude have allowed them to survive? Cannot believe there
was no way to sufficiently repair fragile tiles.

Автор danix454 ( назад)
Robert, there was no way they would have survived this incident. They died
in a few seconds, and in those last few seconds of their lives, they didn't
know anything was wrong. What they were doing was normal protocol for
re-entry. When NASA figured it out, very little time to act and alert the
astronauts, and that was entirely too short of a time to make any
difference. Also, NASA had other shuttles hit with foam debris, but never
thought it was a serious thing until the Columbia incident.
