New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - July 31, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas 8A New Braunfela July Attempts to revive instrument fail CAPE AP Challengers using a new computer failed again today to restore life to their most important science a million instrument to precisely point four telescopes at the the shuttles robot arm waved a small satellite above the and engineers reported that faulty heat sensors caused Challengers engine cutoff during launch on The telescope pointing device seemed to be working better than on previous tries and briefly locked on the but Karl an We lost the track on the boresight and also on the right Evidently the centering has not one of the four solar using its own independent tracking was able for a while to zero in on the prompting Mission Control to Ex

developed a new computer program they hoped would solve its Henize used the Controllers quick thinking saved space shuttle SPACE Houston AP Splitsecond decisions by con trollers acting on reflex saved the space shuttle Challenger when an engine automatically shut leaving it in an orbit lower at one point than the altitude of most jet an engineer A spacecraft at such a low orbit quickly would have been dragged to Bob a guidante and navigation officer in Missioiji Control at the Johnson Space said He jsaid the quickthinking mission controllers ordered the firing of an rocket engine that sent the spacecraft to a safe One 6f three launch engines shut down on Challenger as it was climbing toward orbit on and the astronauts had to inhibit a computer instruction to prevent a second engine from The two working engines burned for 96 extrd giving the spacecraft orbital but Challenger was still in We were still in a critical situation because the orbit was something like 150 miles by 3 said This would have put Challenger lower than the altitude commonly used by commercial Mission Control engineers quickly calculated an Orbital Manuevering System rocket burn that would raise the spacecraft to a safe That burn came 33 minutes after launch and put Challenger into a stable orbit of 124 miles by 165 If we had not executed that OMS we were looking at an abort once said This means that Challenger would have been forced to return to Earth by landing at Edwards Air Force Base in California or at Northup Strip near White The OMS burn was and only then did we know we would be in orbit for the he During the first engine shut it was pretty much he No one was fazed by We all felt pretty But when the second engine threatened to the engineer I was We were in a failure case for going

cornerstone of the War on Drugs was to be a 1981 amendment to the Posse Comitatus Act to allow military support for civilian drug in terception But the few military sur veillance planes used in the effort by 1984 could not fly where Customs needed such as a choke point on the South American route to the United States near The military planes had to have a fighter escort to fly down said the cost of military flights on behalf of Customs didnt he giving as an example 233 hours at per hour flown by AWACs radar aircraft in 1984 that resulted in no drug cases for Customs estimates that 62 percent of illegal drugs entering the country come in by scheduled to be released tonight to fly free for several hours to make other The National Aeronautics and Space Administration announced late Tuesday that bad sensors and not a broken part caused the engine shutdown The in which two 5inch long sensors indicated fuel pumps were is not expected to delay the next shuttle of Discovery on An agency statement said a study of radio data indicated that fuel pumps on the engines performed receiving the false information from the or dered one of the three main engines to shut down 5 45 seconds after launch while Challenger was still firing toward A sensor on a second engine also indicated an extreme temperature rise and threatened to shut that Mission Control felt the reading was wrong and told shuttle commander Gordon Fullerton to disable the sensors so the remaining engines could continue to Flight director Cleon Lacefield said that if a second engine had been lost Challenger and its seven member crew would have fallen to probably on the Greek island of Crete or in the Another flight John Cox said heat sensors had occasionally failed in the but never three on one He said improved detectors have been built and will fly on Discovery next The spacecraft computer in structed the two remaining engines to fire for an extra 86 seconds and Challenger achieved though at a lower altitude than the 241 miles NASA said the 195mile orbit is high enough to permit a full weeklong with only d small loss of science The PDP satellite was examining the glow observed gleaming off spaceship surfaces by most shuttle It apparently is caused by a strong interaction between the ship and surrounding plasma an en vironment of radiation and magnetic Briefly Father acquitted in rape of
