; ref The video was near perfect until the two solid rocket boosters were jettisoned. At that point, the exhaust from the separation motors fogged the camera lens and made the rest of the video difficult to see. Space flight experience STS-47 Spacelab-J (September 12–20, 1992) was an eight-day cooperative mission between the United States and Japan focused on life science and materials processing experiments in space. After completing 126 orbits of Earth

and solar physics (physics), 3 were for studies of the Earth's ionosphere, 2 were life science experiments, and 1 studied the properties of superfluid helium. During the flight, Dr. England was responsible for activating and operating the Spacelab systems, operating the Instrument Pointing System (IPS), and the Remote Manipulator System (RMS), assisting with experiment operations, and performing a contingency EVA had one been necessary. After 126 orbits of the earth, STS 51-F ''Challenger (Space Shuttle Challenger)'' landed at Edwards Air Force Base, California, on August 6, 1985. Forrester was selected as an astronaut candidate by NASA in May 1996. Having completed two years of training and evaluation, he is qualified for flight assignment as a mission specialist. Initially, Forrester was assigned to duties at the Kennedy Space Center as a member of the astronaut support team, responsible for Shuttle prelaunch vehicle checkout, crew ingress and strap-in, and crew egress after landing. He next served as the technical assistant to the Director, Flight Crew Operations. Following that, Forrester served as the Shuttle training and on-board crew procedures representative. Forrester flew on STS-105 (2001). He has logged over 285 hours in space, including four spacewalks totaling 25 hours and 30 minutes of EVA time. In 2007 was assigned to the crew of STS-117. Forrester flew as a mission specialist on the STS-128 mission that launched August 28, 2009. Spaceflight Frimout flew as a payload specialist on STS-45 Atlantis (24 March to 2 April 1992). STS-45 was launched from and returned to land at the Kennedy Space Center, Florida. It was the first Spacelab mission dedicated to NASA's Mission to Planet Earth. During the nine-day flight, the crew aboard Atlantis operated the twelve experiments that constituted the ATLAS-1 (Atmospheric Laboratory for Applications and Science) cargo. ATLAS-1 obtained a vast array of detailed measurements of atmospheric chemical and physical properties, which contributed significantly to improving our understanding of our climate and atmosphere. In addition, this was the first time an artificial beam of electrons was used to stimulate a man-made auroral discharge. At mission conclusion, Frimout had traveled 3.2 million miles in 143 Earth orbits and logged over 214 hours in space. NASA experience Selected by NASA in June 1985, Gemar completed a one-year training and evaluation program and became an astronaut in July 1986. He is qualified for assignment as a mission specialist on future Space Shuttle flight crews. Since then he has held a variety of technical assignments in support of the Space Shuttle Program including: flight software testing in the Shuttle Avionics Integration Laboratory (SAIL); launch support activities at the Kennedy Space Center; spacecraft communicator (CAPCOM (Flight controller#Capsule Communicator (CAPCOM))) in mission control during Space Shuttle missions; Chief of Astronaut Appearances. Gemar has flown three times and has logged over 580 hours in space. He flew on STS-38 (November 15–20, 1990), STS-48 (September 12–18, 1991), and STS-62 (March 4–18, 1994). On his first mission, Gemar served on the five-man crew of STS-38 which launched at night from the Kennedy Space Center, Florida, on November 15, 1990. During the five-day mission crew members conducted Department of Defense (United States Department of Defense) operations. After 80 orbits of the Earth in 117 hours, in the first Shuttle recovery in Florida since 1985, Space Shuttle ''Atlantis (Space Shuttle Atlantis)'' and her crew landed back at the Kennedy Space Center on November 20, 1990. STS-30 Atlantis launched from Kennedy Space Center, Florida, on May 4, 1989. During the four-day mission, the crew successfully deployed the Magellan (Magellan probe) Venus-exploration spacecraft, the first U.S. planetary science mission launched since 1978, and the first planetary probe to be deployed from the Shuttle. Magellan arrived at Venus in mid-1990, and mapped over 95% of the surface of Venus. Magellan has been one of NASA's most successful scientific missions and continues to operate today gaining information about the Venetian atmosphere and magnetic field. In addition, crew members also worked on secondary payloads involving fluid research in general, chemistry, and electrical storm studies. Following 64 orbits of the Earth, the STS-30 mission concluded with a landing at Edwards Air Force Base, California, on May 8, 1989. Mission duration was 96 hours, 57 minutes, 35 seconds. NASA experience Selected by NASA in May 1984, Gutierrez became an astronaut in June 1985. In his first technical assignment he served as commander for the Shuttle Avionics Integration Laboratory (SAIL), flying simulated missions to verify Shuttle flight software. Following the Shuttle Challenger accident (STS-51-L) he served as an action officer for the Associate Administrator for Space Flight at NASA Headquarters. His duties included coordinating requests from the Presidential Commission (Rogers Commission) and the U.S. Congress during the investigation. In 1986 and 1987, he participated in the recertification of the Space Shuttle Main Engines, Main Propulsion System, and External Tank (Space Shuttle external tank). In 1988, he became the Astronaut Office lead for Shuttle software development, verification, and future requirements definition. In 1989 he supported launches of STS-28, 30 (STS-30), 32 (STS-32), 33 (STS-33) and 34 (STS-34) at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Spaceflight experience STS-67 Astro-2 Space Shuttle Discovery (w:Space Shuttle Discovery) has successfully launched from Kennedy Space Center (w:Kennedy Space Center) in Florida on mission STS-128 (w:STS-128). Discovery took off at 11:59 p.m. (EDT (w:Eastern Time Zone)) for a 13-day mission to the International Space Station (ISS). On Thursday, NASA officials confirmed that a small plastic bag of cocaine (w:cocaine) was found two days before in a secure space shuttle (w:space shuttle) processing facility within the Kennedy Space Center (w:Kennedy Space Center) located in Merritt Island (w:Merritt Island), Florida (w:Florida). ''Atlantis'' lifted off in fair weather at 2:20 p.m. EDT (1820 UTC) from the Kennedy Space Center (w:Kennedy Space Center) in Cape Canaveral (w:Cape Canaveral), Florida.

History The oldest human artifacts found in Whitchurch Township date back to 1500 BC and were found in the hamlet of Ringwood (Ringwood, Ontario) (now part of urban Stouffville). Barkey et al., Whitchurch Township, 118f.; for a very descriptive account of ancient native burial grounds in Whitchurch Township written in 188, cf. C. Mulvany et al., History of Toronto and County of York, Ontario (Toronto: C. Blackett Robinson, 1885), 148-151. Prior to the arrival of Europeans, two Native trails crossed through what is today Whitchurch–Stouffville. The ''Vandorf Trail'' ran from the source waters of the Rouge River (Rouge River (Ontario)) to Newmarket (Newmarket, Ontario), across the heights of the hamlet of Vandorf (Vandorf, Ontario), and the ''Rouge Trail'' ran along the Rouge River and northwest from Musselman Lake; both were part of the aboriginal and Coureur des bois trail system leading through dense forests from Lake Ontario to Lake Simcoe. Barkey et al., Whitchurch Township, ch. 1, pp. 9ff., 18. Cf. also C.P. Mulvany, et al., Whitchurch, ''History of Toronto and County of York, Ontario'' (Toronto: C.B. Robinson, 1885), 148ff.; cf. 1718 map by Guillaume de L'Isle , ''' Vaughan :''' CFU758 90.7 (CFU758) group6 Halton Region (Regional Municipality of Halton) - Whitchurch–Stouffville Wayne Emmerson - '''Ballantrae, Ontario''' (2011 population (Canada 2011 Census) 1,382) is a hamlet (hamlet (place)) in the Town of Whitchurch–Stouffville (Whitchurch–Stouffville). Named for the village of Ballantrae in South Ayrshire, Scotland, the community is centred around the intersection of Aurora Road (York Regional Road 15) and Highway 48 (Highway 48 (Ontario)). The hamlet was first settled in the early 19th century, and by 1895 it had a population of 300. Cf. a thorough account of Ballantrae's history in Jean Barkey et al., Whitchurch Township (Erin, ON: Boston Mills, 1993), 87-90. See also the detailed 1878 map, Township of Whitchurch, ''Illustrated historical atlas of the county of York and the township of West Gwillimbury & town of Bradford in the county of Simcoe, Ont.'' (Toronto: Miles & Co., 1878). The town was located on the edge of the vast lumber industry centred in the hamlet of Vivian (Vivian, Ontario); a spur-line of the Toronto and Nipissing Railway built in 1877 ran through Ballantrae from Stouffville (Whitchurch-Stouffville) to Jackson's Point (Jackson's Point, Ontario) on Lake Simcoe. In the early 20th century, Ballantrae's population declined dramatically due to large-scale deforestation and the erosion of the thin soil of northern Whitchurch Township into virtual sand deserts. Barkey et al., Whitchurch Township, 89; 30f. In 1910, its population was 250; cf. Province of Ontario, Gazatteer and Directory, 1910-1911 (Ingersoll: Union, 1910), p. 46. With the passage of the Reforestation Act (1911), the process of reclaiming these areas slowly began. The Vivian Forest, a large conservation area on the edge of Ballantrae, was established in 1924 for this purpose.

, owner Carl Pohlad almost sold the Twins to North Carolina businessman Don Beaver, who would have moved the team to the Piedmont Triad (Greensboro (Greensboro, North Carolina) – Winston-Salem (Winston-Salem, North Carolina) – High Point (High Point, North Carolina)) area. The defeat of a referendum for a stadium in North Carolina and a lack of interest in building a stadium for the Twins in Charlotte (Charlotte, North Carolina) killed the deal.

and life science center in the United States. Then again on Sunday, calls to 9-1-1 (w:9-1-1) began to come in to Williamson County (w:Williamson County, Texas), Texas sheriff's office around 12:30 p.m. (Central time (w:Central Time Zone)) that burning debris and fireballs were seen falling from the sky onto parts of Austin (w:Austin, Texas), Houston (w:Houston, Texas), Waco (w:Waco, Texas) and San Antonio (w:San Antonio, Texas). By this time, I’m thinking that it might be good for a change. Bye to California, I’ll try Austin (w:Austin, Texas) for a while. So I moved, only to find out that this is a place with a highly inflated sense of self-importance and where damn little real engineering work is done. I’ve never experienced such a hard time finding work. The rates are 1 3 of what I was earning before the crash, because pay rates here are fixed by the three or four large companies in the area who are in collusion to drive down prices and wages… and this happens because the justice department (w:United States Department of Justice) is all on the take and doesn’t give a fuck about serving anyone or anything but themselves and their rich buddies.
