No new episode this week because I got appendicitis and need to recover from my appendectomy. Sorry! New episode in two weeks.
STS-41B left some unfinished business in low earth orbit in the form of a couple of stranded communications satellites. On STS-51A, we're gonna go get 'em.
Challenger's back on the launch pad with the biggest crew we've seen yet, but something seems to be wrong with the Ku-band antenna. I hope you're ready for some orbiter attitude gymnastics!
Space Shuttle Discovery joins the cast, and makes a dramatic entrance.
The Solar Maximum Mission is in trouble, and only the crew of STS-41C can save it. Join us for the shuttle's first on-orbit repair of an uncrewed satellite!
STS-41B (wait, what happened to STS-10?) runs into a few bumps in the road, but clears the road for the next mission and comes home with some pretty spiffy photos.
John Young flies for one last time, carrying a payload bay full of science. Wait, does someone hear a sizzling sound coming from the engine compartment?
Challenger hauls the mail on STS-8, before using a giant dumbbell to flex its remote manipulator system muscles.
Sally Ride becomes America's first female astronaut to fly in space, and teaches Challenger how to say 7 for the camera.
