STS-400 (STS-125 LON) Mission Patch


STS-400 (STS-125 LON) Mission Patch This is a high quality, embroidered patch with iron on properties on the back. It is approximately 3" across. STS-400 is the Space Shuttle contingency support (Launch on Need) flight, which would be launched should a major problem occur during STS-125, the final Hubble Space Telescope servicing mission (HST SM-4). Due to the much lower orbital inclination of the HST compared to the ISS, the shuttle crew will be unable to use the International Space Station as a safe haven and follow the usual plan of recovering the crew with another shuttle at a later date. Instead, NASA has developed a plan to conduct a shuttle-to-shuttle rescue mission, similar to proposed rescue missions for pre-ISS flights. This rescue mission would be launched only seven days after call up, as the maximum time the crew can remain aboard the damaged orbiter is 23 to 28 days. For this mission, the rescue shuttle Discovery will be rolled to its launch pad two weeks before the planned STS-125 shuttle launch, creating a rare scenario of two shuttles being on the launch pads at the same time. After the STS-125 mission, launch pad 39B will continue the conversion for use in Project Constellation for the Ares I and Ares V rockets. tos
