official role in the U.S. space satellite program was delayed, however, after higher authorities elected to use the Vanguard rocket (Vanguard (rocket)) then being developed by the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL). In February 1956, the Army Ballistic Missile Agency (ABMA) was established; von Braun was the director of the Development Operations Division. One of the primary programs was a When the problem reoccurred, NASA ran a fuel test, which led them to believe the problem lied in the faulty connector. The connector was then removed from the tank and taken to Marshall Space Flight Center (w:Marshall Space Flight Center) in Huntsville (w:Huntsville, Alabama), Alabama, where it is currently undergoing extensive analysis and modification. The new connector is scheduled to be installed by January 10. At the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center (w:Marshall Space Flight Center) activities will focus on their slogan for Earth Day 2009, "Just One Drop ... PRICELESS" and will demonstrate how the Environmental Control Life Support System (w:Life support system) operates as used on the International Space Staton (w:International Space Station) (ISS).
. Controversies and future outlook Only a few political controversies are known concerning OTRAG because of concerns of neighbors of Zaire and Libya about the dual use potential of rockets (dual use). A full orbital launch vehicle was never assembled. Modules were flight tested in Zaire and Libya. 6,000 static rocket engine tests and 16 single stage qualification tests were made to prove the concept as feasible. Small, 4-unit vehicles were built and tested in Shaba North, Zaire
Challenge season 2009 it has been the opening round of the Intercontinental Rally Challenge (IRC) programme. As recently as 1991 (1991 World Rally Championship season), competitors were able to choose their starting points from approximately five venues roughly equidistant from Monte Carlo (one of Monaco's administrative areas) itself. With often varying conditions at each starting point (typically comprising dry tarmac, wet tarmac, snow, and ice, sometimes all in a single stage of the rally), this placed a big emphasis on tyre choices, as a driver has to balance the need for grip on ice and snow with the need for grip on dry tarmac. For the driver, this is often a difficult choice as the tyres that work well on snow and ice normally perform badly on dry tarmac. Settlement of estate His first will (will (law)) was opened the day after his death and a second will, within the same month of September. Formula One looks set to enter an era of standardised engines. The FIA (w:FIA) is meeting with teams in Monte Carlo (w:Monte Carlo) and is expected to approve the use by some teams of a standardised power unit provided by Cosworth (w:Cosworth), an automotive engineering company, from 2010 onwards. The move to a standard engine, which is common in lower tiers of open wheeled racing such as GP2 (w:GP2 Series), was pushed for by FIA President Max Mosley (w:Max Mosley) earlier this year as he aims to reduce team costs. This would not see the exclusion of manufacturer made engines, as at this time participation in the system would be voluntary and teams would be free to build licensed Cosworth engines or their own powerplants but on a performance par with the Cosworth unit. Mosley has stated that stabilising Formula One means that the FIA "...must stabilize the system with a base engine which anyone can have and which is inexpensive, as well as a standard gearbox" and has warned of future budget problems, saying that "Honda pulled out because of falling car sales and there is no guarantee that these falling sales, which affect all manufacturers, will not drop further". thumb left Circuit de Monaco (File:Circuit_Monaco.svg) Brawn (w:Brawn GP) Mercedes (w:Mercedes-Benz in motorsport) driver Jenson Button (w:Jenson Button) won today's FIA (w:Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile) Formula One (w:Formula One) 2009 (w:2009 Monaco Grand Prix) Grand Prix de Monaco (w:Monaco Grand Prix) on the Circuit de Monaco (w:Circuit de Monaco) at Monte Carlo (w:Monte Carlo), Monaco.

Experiments for Advancing Missions in Space (TEAMS) also flew in the Shuttle's payload bay. VentureStar was to be a single-stage-to-orbit vehicle that would take off vertically and land like an airplane. VentureStar was to be a commercial endeavor, and flights would have been leased to NASA as needed. After failures with the X-33 (Lockheed Martin X-33) subscale technology demonstrator test vehicle, funding was canceled in 2001. Following analog electronic control, the logical progression
fuel tanks, and the aerospike engine, NASA and Lockheed Martin hoped to test fly a craft that would demonstrate the viability of a single-stage-to-orbit (SSTO) design. An SSTO craft would not require external fuel tanks or boosters to reach low-earth orbit. Doing away with the need for "staging" with launch vehicles, such as with the Shuttle and the Apollo rockets, would lead to an inherently more reliable and safer space launch vehicle. While the X-33 would not approach
is that NASA, far from helping space exploration, actually prevents it from going forth. The narrative follows disparate engineering efforts, ranging from New York University engineering students working out of a warehouse in the Bronx to full-fledged commercial rocket operations, to create a single-stage to orbit reusable launch vehicle.

the rebuilding of the railway network in Soviet Union after the Second World War (World War II) and have since been used on the whole broad gauge network, including Finland and Mongolia. It is also used on the standard gauge networks of Iraq and on Malmbanan in Sweden for ore trains. The '''RPG-26''' ''Aglen'' is a disposable anti-tank rocket launcher (Rocket-propelled grenade) developed by the Soviet Union. It fires a single-stage rocket with jack-knife fins, which unfold after launch. The rocket carries a 72.5 millimeter diameter high explosive anti-tank (HEAT) single shaped charge warhead capable of penetrating 440 millimeters of armour (Vehicle armour), one meter of reinforced concrete or one and a half meters of brickwork. It has a maximum effective range of around 250 meters. History The RPG-27 ''Tavolga'' ('meadow grass') was developed by the State Research and Production Enterprise, Bazalt as a modern anti-tank grenade launcher designed to defeat modern and future tanks with advanced reactive (Reactive armour) and composite armor as well as fortified infantry.
