CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"


A booster camera gives a unique look at the separation of the twin solid rocket boosters and external fuel tank as the shuttle Discovery and crew head into orbit for a 2-day journey to meet up at the International space station.

Video shows a camera placed on one of the rocket boosters, which separates from the Space Shuttle Discovery and the external fuel tank. After a break in the video showing the separation, the rocket booster is shown splashing down in the sea.

Space Shuttle Discovery (Orbiter Vehicle Designation: OV-103) is one of the three currently operational orbiters in the Space Shuttle fleet of NASA, the space agency of the United States. (The other two shuttle names are Atlantis and Endeavour.)


When first flown in 1984, Discovery became the third operational orbiter, and is now the oldest orbiter in service. Discovery has performed both research and International Space Station (ISS) assembly missions.

Discovery has flown 38 flights, completed 5,247 orbits, and has spent 322 days in orbit. Discovery is the orbiter fleet leader, having flown more flights than any other orbiter in the fleet, including four in 1985 alone. Discovery flew all three “return to flight” missions after the Challenger and Columbia disasters: STS-26 in 1986, STS-114 in 2005, and STS-121 in 2006.

List of flights of Space Shuttle Discovery
STS-41-D: First flight
