  • STS-120 Discovery - Node 2 "Harmony"


    Space Shuttle Atlantis will deliver the U.S. Harmony module, and will
    reconfigure part of the station to prepare for future assembly missions.



    STS-120

    STS-120 (englisch Space Transportation System)
    ist eine Missionsbezeichnung für den US-amerikanischen Space Shuttle
    Atlantis (OV-104) der NASA.

    Der Start ist momentan für den 26. August 2007 von der Startrampe 39A
    vorgesehen.

    STS-120 Mission Patch

    The STS-120 crew, led by commander Pam Melroy, will wear a black,
    blue and gold mission patch that features their primary payload and that
    appears to draw from the Astronaut Office symbol for its design. The
    circular badge is ringed by the seven names of the crew, including an
    Italian flag next to European Space Agency astronaut Paolo Nespoli's
    name. The insignia displays a shuttle orbiter with the embedded outline of
    the Node 2 multi-port module. The constellation Orion appears to be rising
    over Earth's horizon, below the Moon and Mars. A sunburst balances the
    patch, opposite the planets. A stylized vector gold completes the insignia.



    STS-120 Overview

    STS-120 is the 23rd shuttle mission to the International Space Station, and
    will launch an Italian-built U.S. multi-port module for the station.

    Air Force Col. Pamela A. Melroy will command the STS-120 mission to
    take the Node 2 connecting module to the station. Melroy, a veteran
    shuttle pilot, is the second woman to command a shuttle. Marine Corps
    Col. George D. Zamka will serve as pilot. The flight's mission specialists
    will be Scott E. Parazynski, Army Col. Douglas H. Wheelock, Stephanie D.
    Wilson and Paolo A. Nespoli, a European Space Agency astronaut from
    Italy. Zamka, Wheelock and Nespoli will be making their first spaceflight.

    Expedition 15 Flight Engineer Clayton Anderson will return to Earth from
    the space station aboard shuttle mission STS-120. That flight will carry his
    replacement, Daniel Tani, to the station. Tani will return on shuttle mission
    STS-122.

    NASA Space Station Module In
    Perfect ‘Harmony’ With New Name


    14 March 2007

    Ever since it was designed and built for the International Space Station, it
    has been known as the Node 2 module. Now thanks to students from
    across the United States, Node 2 also will be known as Harmony.


    The name was chosen from an academic competition involving more than
    2,200 students in kindergarten through high school from 32 states. The
    Node 2 Challenge required students to learn about the space station, build
    a scale model and write an essay explaining their proposed name for the
    module that will serve as a central hub for science labs.

    Station after the Harmony connecting node (circled in yellow) is relocated
    from the Unity node port side to the forward port of the Destiny
    Laboratory. Credit: NASA


    Six different schools submitted Harmony. A panel of NASA educators,
    engineers, scientists and senior agency management selected it because
    the name symbolizes the spirit of international cooperation embodied by
    the space station, as well as the specific role played by the module in tying
    together the international partner modules.

                Inclination/Orbit Altitude: 51.6 degrees/122 nautical miles

                In Orbiter Processing Facility bay No. 3, forward and aft closeout work
                continues. Work is under way to test for orbiter structural leakage and
                positive pressure. Final orbiter power down is scheduled for next week.

                In the Vehicle Assembly Building, external tank No. 120 was transferred
                on Wednesday from its checkout cell to high bay No. 1 for mating to the
                solid rocket boosters. Closeout work is now under way, including
                mechanical and electrical connections of the tank and boosters.

                  In Orbiter Processing Facility bay 3, forward and aft closeout work is
                  complete. The payload bay doors were opened this week in order to install
                  the tool stowage assembly that will be used by crew members on orbit to
                  test tile repair techniques. The payload bay doors are now closed for
                  rollover, and the vehicle has been powered down.

                  The orbiter weight and center of gravity have been determined. This is the
                  final task prior to transferring Discovery to the orbiter transporter in
                  preparation for rollover to the Vehicle Assembly Building. Rollover is
                  scheduled for 6:30 a.m. Sept. 19.

                  In the Vehicle Assembly Building, mating closeout work continues on the
                  external fuel tank and solid rocket boosters in high bay 1.

                    Verzögerung!

                    17. September 2007, Montag

                    Die NASA hat heute beschlossen, daß die leckenden Dichtungen in der Hydraulik am Steuerbordhauptfahrwerk der DISCOVERY ausgetauscht werden sollen. Die Undichtigkeit war bei routinemäßigen Tests, die vor dem Herüberrollen des Orbiters in das VAB durchgeführt werden, entdeckt worden. Die erlaubte Leckrate für die fraglichen Dichtungen beträgt 1 Tropfen pro Stunde. Als die Hydraulikböcke, die die DISCOVERY über dem Hangarboden gehalten hatten, abgelassen wurden, und das volle gewicht wieder auf dem Fahrwerk ruhte, bemerkten Ingenieure eine Leckage von 285 Tropfen pro Stunde. Nachdem das Fahrwerk mehrmals ein- und wieder ausgefahren worden war, war die Leckacke zwar auf 23 Tropfen pro Stunde gesunken, aber das war immer noch weit über den Spezifikationen und nachdem das Problem heute zwischen NASA-Programmleitern und den Vertretern der Vertragsfirmen besprochen worden war, ordnete der Leiter der Shuttle-Integration am Kennedy Raumfahrtzentrum, LeRoy Cain, an, daß beide Dichtungen ausgetauscht werden sollten.
                    Die Arbeiten erfordern, daß die Techniker die Räder und Bremsen am Rechten Fahrwerk abbauen und das Hydrauliksystem und die Instrumente abklemmen, bevor sie die Dichtungen austauschen können. Der Hersteller (Goodrich) wird am Dienstag am KSC erwartet, die neuen Dichtungen sollen am Mittwoch geliefert werden. Bis dahin soll das Raumfahrzeug für den Austausch der Dichtungen vorbereitet sein.
                    Die Überführung zum VAB war ursprünglich für Mittwoch geplant, wird sich jetzt aber um rund eine Woche auf den 25. oder 26. September verzögern. Die Startmannschaft hatte 5 Tage an Pufferzeit in ihrem Zeitplan eingebaut. Berücksichtigt man das, könnte der Austausch der Dichtungen den Start um zwei bis drei Tage verzögern. NASA-Funktionäre sagten aber auch, daß es zu früh ist zu sagen, welchen Einfluß die Reparatur tatsächlich haben wird. Die Schätzungen von NASA und ihren Vertragsfirmen neigen üblicherweise zu einer eher konservativer Sicht der Lage und die Techniker arbeiten für gewöhnlich besser als erwartet.
                    In einer anderen, davon unabhängigen Entscheidung wurde von Seiten der Missionsleitung beschlossen, einen fünften Außeneinsatz in den Missionsplan einzubauen, bei dem ein neues Werkzeug zur Kachelreparatur getestet werden soll.

                      In Orbiter Processing Facility bay No. 3, workers replaced four seals and
                      their associated components on the right-hand main landing gear strut
                      after a hydraulic fluid leak was discovered during the "weight on wheels"
                      test. The landing gear has been reassembled and testing is under way. If
                      all tests are successful, Discovery will roll over to the Vehicle Assembly
                      Building on Sunday morning.

                      In the assembly building, mate closeout work is complete on the external
                      fuel tank and solid rocket boosters in high bay No. 1, and preparations are
                      in progress for the orbiter mate on Monday. Rollout to Pad 39A is targeted
                      for Sept. 30.

                      Goodrich technicians begin work on the starboard landing gear assembly
                      of space shuttle Discovery. They will replace a leaking dynamic seal in
                      Discovery's right main-gear strut. The struts act as shock absorbers
                      during the shuttle's landing. Engineers determined the observed leak of
                      hydraulic fluid in the main landing gear strut exceeded specification and
                      could not be reduced to an acceptable rate. Removing the strut and
                      replacing seals require disconnecting and replacing the brakes and tires,
                      disconnecting and reconnecting instruments and other requirements to
                      allow access to the strut. Discovery had been scheduled to roll over
                      Sept. 19 from its processing hangar to the Vehicle Assembly Building. A
                      new rollover date will be set after technicians determine how long
                      replacing the seal will take. Photo credit: NASA/George Shelton

                      right main-gear strut. Engineers determined an observed leak of hydraulic
                      fluid in the main landing gear strut exceeded specification and could not be
                      reduced to an acceptable rate. Thus, the leaky seal and three other seals
                      were replaced. Prior to discovery of the leak, the vehicle had been
                      scheduled to roll over Sept. 19 from the OPF to the Vehicle Assembly
                      Building. A new rollover date will be set for Discovery, which is targeted

                      With space shuttle Discovery's right main landing gear reassembled
                      following the replacement of its four hydraulic seals, technicians now are
                      carrying out a series of tests on the system. The shuttle is in the Orbiter
                      Processing Facility, or OPF. One of Discovery's struts, which act as shock
                      absorbers during the shuttle's landing, began leaking hydraulic fluid last
                      week. Prior to discovery of the leak, the vehicle had been scheduled to roll
                      over Sept. 19 from the OPF to the Vehicle Assembly Building. The rollover
                      date will be determined after the tests. Discovery is targeted for launch on

                      Node 2 module, known as Harmony, from its stand. The crane will transfer
                      the module to the payload canister in another area of the facility. The
                      canister will deliver Harmony to Launch Pad 39A for installation into space
                      shuttle Discovery's payload bay.

                      above the floor of the Space Station Processing Facility as the module is
                      transferred to the payload canister. The canister will deliver Harmony to
                      Launch Pad 39A for installation into space shuttle Discovery's payload bay.
                      The Italian-built module is about 21 feet long and 14 feet in diameter. The
                      pressurized module will act as an internal connecting port and passageway
                      to additional international science labs and cargo spacecraft. In addition to
                      increasing the living and working space inside the station, it also will serve
                      as a work platform outside for the station's robotic arm. Harmony will be
                      installed on the station during mission STS-120, targeted to launch

                              U.S. Node 2 "Harmony"
                              Vehicle: Discovery (OV-103)
                              Location: Launch Pad 39A
                              Launch Date: Targeted for Oct. 23, 2007
                              Launch Pad: 39A
                              Crew: Pamela Melroy, George Zamka, Scott Parazynski,
                              Douglas Wheelock, Stephanie Wilson, Paolo Nespoli and Daniel Tani
                              Inclination/Orbit Altitude: 51.6 degrees/122 nautical miles

                              On Sunday, STS-120 was transported via the crawler transporter to
                              Launch Pad 39A. The rotating service structure, which protects and
                              provides access to the orbiter at the pad, was rolled into position on
                              Monday. During the week, workers performed shuttle interface testing,
                              orbiter/external tank leak checks and launch pad validations. The payload
                              was installed in the orbiter on Thursday, and the sensor packs were
                              installed on the orbiter boom sensor system.

                              Loading of hypergolic propellants aboard Discovery is scheduled for this
                              weekend. Next week, the terminal countdown demonstration test is
                              scheduled with the STS-120 astronauts and the launch team. This routine
                              series of events includes emergency training procedures and a launch
                              countdown dress rehearsal.

                              After the hail monitoring system at the pad showed possible hail in the
                              predawn hours of Wednesday, engineers fully inspected the space shuttle
                              but found no damage. There were no radar indications of hail, though
                              wind-driven rain may have been possible. The calibration of the hail
                              monitoring system sensors and associated instrumentation is being
                              assessed.
