I am looking for the Terminal Countdown Demonstration Test (TCDT) dates for the following space shuttle missions:
STS-5, STS-6, STS-7, STS-8, STS-9, STS 41-B, STS 41-C, STS 41-D, STS 41-G, STS 51-A, STS 51-C, STS-51-D, STS 51-B, STS 51-G, STS 51-F, STS-51-I, STS 51-J, STS-61-A, STS 61-B, STS 61-C, STS 51-L, STS-26, STS-27, STS-29, STS-30, STS-28, STS-34, STS-33, STS-32, STS-36, STS-31, STS-41, STS-38, STS-35, STS-37, STS-39, STS-40, STS-43, STS-48, STS-44, STS-42, STS-45, STS-STS-46, STS-47, STS-52, STS-53, STS-54, STS-55, STS-58, STS-62, STS-68, STS-66, STS-71, STS-91, STS-96, STS-93, STS-103, STS-99, STS-101, STS-106, STS-97, STS-98, STS-102, STS-100, STS-104, STS-105, STS-108, STS-109 and STS-110.
These are when the astronauts are suited up and practice the countdown in the space shuttle cockpit/flight deck/mid deck. These occurred on the launch pads as well. Some space shuttle missions may of have had two TCDT due to launch scrubs/aborts and mission schedules changing?
Any information on TCDT would be very helpful. Thank you.
