The POW Medal was presented to WW II Army Air Corps SSgt. Charles Brudo at the request of USAF (ret) Col Vincent Fonke who was the pilot of the ill fated B-17 that was abandoned after heavy damage by German fighters on Aug 16, 1944; both were taken prisoner and liberated on April 29, 1945.

Space Test Program Experiments

M88-1 on STS-44. M88-1 was part of the Military Man in Space (MMIS) program. At this time the military was trying to decide if it had a manned requirement in space. This program evaluated the capability of man in space to enhance air, naval and ground force operations and assessed the feasibility of observations of space debris while in orbit. M88-1 was a test of what a manned (military) observer in space could accomplish. The collective results from this experiment and others were essentially that the Department of Defense did not see utility in manned space and the MMIS program was cancelled. The DoD focused on robotic systems that we fly today. (USAF photo)

Space Test Program Experiments

The study of satellite systems and subsystems of spacecraft components are necessary to develop sustainability and reliability of spacecraft function. They form the focus of the second type of STP experiments and logically flow from the space environment studies. The satellite systems below illustrate two of many ways these STP experiments have improved satellite function and reliability. One of the hazards associated with the operation and physical composition of a spacecraft in orbit is the phenomenon known as spacecraft charging. Spacecraft charging results from different electric potentials being built upon various spacecraft surfaces. The different potentials cause arcing and can disable a spacecraft. In 1979, STP launched the SCATHA satellite, which carried out 14 experiments related to spacecraft charging. SCATHA had operated in geosynchronous orbit for over 10 years and had returned a wealth of useful data. SCATHA provided the data base for analyzing spacecraft anomalies and was the primary source of data for military standards related to spacecraft charging. The Combined Release and Radiation Effects Satellite (CRRES) mission launched by STP in 1990 carried out two particularly useful experiments in support of military operations in space. First, CRRES demonstrated and evaluated a new high efficiency solar panel. The experiment contributed to improved space power systems. CRRES also tested and space qualified advanced microelectronic components in space and has contributed to improved military space systems. (USAF photo)

The Sun’s magnetic field and the release of plasma directly affect Earth and the rest of the solar system. Solar wind shapes the Earth’s magnetosphere and magnetic storms are illustrated here as approaching Earth. These storms, which occur frequently, can disrupt communications and navigational equipment, damage satellites, and even cause blackouts. The white lines represent the solar wind; the purple line is the bow shock line; and the blue lines surrounding the Earth represent its protective magnetosphere. The magnetic cloud of plasma can extend to 30 million miles wide by the time it reaches earth. (Image and caption courtesy of NASA Image Gallery)

Long-Duration Exposure Facility

The Long-Duration Exposure Facility (LDEF) was a largely passive re-usable satellite payload tailored to exploit the Space Shuttle’s two-way transportation capability. Specifically, the LDEF was designed to provide a large number of economical opportunities for science and technology experiments that required modest electrical power and data processing while in space and which benefited from post-flight laboratory investigations with the retrieved experiment hardware. In fact, many of the experiments developed for the LDEF-STS mission were completely passive and depended entirely on post-flight laboratory investigations for the experiment results. (USAF photo)
