Down 4.09 panel cites management design problems Date of shuttle s return Uncertain an a news analysis Washington apr returning the shuttle to orbit will take time and will require revitalized management at Nasa and the Likely redesign of not Only the solid fuel Booster rockets but also the main engines brakes and other systems. The return to space and the flight rate will depend on a number of unresolved issues such As the number of changes required an escape Mode for the astronauts during the critical moments of Landing new stands for test ing the overhauled rockets a replacement for the destroyed challenger and the use of unmanned rockets to carry Many payloads earmarked for the shuttle. In its report on the Jan. 28 shuttle explosion the Rogers commission addressed these issues monday making specific recommendations in some cases and leaving the solution of others up to Nasa. A we found a lot of things that need attention a chairman William p. Rogers told a news conference. If the space Agency adopts All the commission recommendations and suggestions its goal of flight resumption in july 1987 could be pushed Back a year or two. Resumption of flights could be delayed by several months if officials accept the commissions suggestion that a full consideration should be Given to test firing redesigned Booster rockets upright instead of horizontally As in the past so As to More closely approximate launch conditions. Nasa said this would require building new test stands and would be a costly and complicated procedure. The commission blamed the Accident on a poorly designed Booster rocket joint and its no. 1 recommendation was that a the faulty solid rocket motor joint and Seal must be changed without regard to Cost or t Ime. The report said problems with the joints were known but unsolved be cause of a weak management and communications Structure both within Nasa and the Booster rocket contractor Morton thi Okol. It said the joints a should be fully understood tested and verified and their strength should equal or surpass that of the rocket casing in recent congressional testimony Arnold Aldrich manager of the shuttle office at the Johnson space Center said 44 potential shuttle safety concerns had been identified involving the orbiter the fuel tank and the main shuttle engine he said All of these might have to be addressed before resuming flights. The main shuttle engines have experienced valve failures leaks and premature wearing and cracking of Turbine Blades. The brakes have locked on some landings. The report recommended an overhaul of nasal a management Structure and said the space Agency a shuttle chief at Headquarters should exert More control Over individual Field centers. Without being specific the commission said the Agency should make All efforts to provide a Crew escape system for use during the critical moments when a shuttle is gliding Back to Earth for a Landing. To do so also w Ould require a major redesign which could take considerable time. The report recognized there is Little Chance a Crew could escape if trouble developed during the first two minutes after liftoff when the Booster rockets Are firing so it did not recommend an escape system for that period. But it said Nasa should make every Effort a to increase the Range of flight conditions under which an emergency runway Landing can be successfully conducted in the event two or three main engines fail Early in that might involve landings at municipal airports along the Florida East coast. Still to be decided is whether to build a replacement for challenger.
