I was wondering if anyone could recommend some books that would contain information about the equipment that supported the space shuttle program, such as the Shuttle Carrier Aircraft, the Shuttle Training Aircraft, the Rotating Service structure, the Crawler, etc.

Most of the resources I have consulted so far concentrate on the main components of the shuttle stack, with very detailed descriptions on the orbiters and boosters. I'd like to learn more about other "stuff."

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

Not "books," per se, but you might try nosing around Scribd, especially the Bob Andrepont collection. He has some Rockwell program documents and NASA Facts that cover some ground support activities.

Seconded on the Bob Andrepont Scribd page. Nearly 700 Shuttle-related docs, many concentrating on support facilities and equipment.

Note the Bob Andrepont link above seems to not work. This sounds interesting and I'd like to see the docs referenced. Thank you.

Odd... it works for me. You could also go to scribd.com/bandrepont. The Shuttle collections is in the first page.

Part 3 of the upcoming Apogee Books title, "Live TV From Orbit" covers the entire TV system development for the shuttle CCTV. It also includes details of post STS-1 changes/modifications to the TV system over the course of the shuttle program.

All times are CT (US)
