for future joint space flights, but both spacecraft also had scientific experiments. This was the last manned U.S. space mission until April 1981. HEAO The High Energy Astronomy Observatory (HEAO Program) (HEAO) Program involved three missions of large spacecraft in low-Earth orbit (low earth orbit) Each spacecraft was about 18 feet (5.5 m) in length, weighed between 6000 and 7000 lb (2700 and 3200 kg), and carried some 3000 lb (1400 kg

The last remaining debate was over the nature of the boosters. NASA examined four solutions to this problem: development of the existing Saturn lower stage, simple pressure-fed liquid-fuel engines of a new design, a large single solid rocket, or two (or more) smaller ones. Engineers at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center (where

That marked the completion of the U.S. "core" of the station. In March 2010, Boeing turned over It is planned that the International Space Station will be operated at least through the end of 2020

, highly successful missions were started in August 1977 (HEAO 1), November 1978 (HEAO 2, also called the Einstein Observatory), and September 1979 (HEAO 3). Fred A. Speer was the HEAO project manager for MSFC. Tucker, Wallace H.; "The Star Splitters: The High Energy Astronomy Observatories" NASA, SP-466, 1984; Other research Other MSFC-managed space science projects in the 1970s included the Laser Geodynamics Satellite (LAGEOS) (LAGEOS) and Gravity Probe A. In LAGEOS, laser beams from 35 ground stations are reflected by 422 prismatic mirrors on the satellite to track movements in the Earth's crust. The measurement accuracy is a few centimeters and it tracks the movement of tectonic plates with comparable accuracy. Conceived and built at MSFC, the LAGEOS was launched by a Delta (Delta (rocket family)) rocket in May 1976. "Laser Tracking Reflector", NASA Tech Data Gravity Probe A, also called the Redshift Experiment, used an extremely precise hydrogen maser clock to confirm part of Einstein's general theory of relativity (general relativity). The probe was launched in June 1976, by a Scout (Scout (rocket family)) rocket, and remained in space for near two hours, as intended. Vessot, R.F.C. et al. (1980).

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).
