[i]"The more we delved into engineering the vertical stack using replica parts, the more we realized it was going to be a huge engineering challenge to design and, even more importantly, verify the load paths would meet all of the seismic requirements and correctly support Endeavour."
"As we discussed it with our building engineer and engineers from Boeing it became obvious that using a complete flight hardware stack would simplify the verification effort since NASA already knew the loads all of the vehicle components were certified for. As long as the seismic requirements were completely enveloped by the certified flight loads, we were good."[/i]
