Armor - Armor - Designing armor for American Soldiers. In the Armorer's Workshop of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, N.Y., under the direction of Major Bashford Dean, Ord. Dept., U.S.A. and Curator of Armor at the Museum, armor for the American soldiers fighting in France is being designed. The suits of armor used in medieval times which many collectors have brought to the museum were carefully inspected and thegood points brought to bear in fashioning this modern armor. The actual labor is being performed by Assistant Curator of Armor at the Museum, Daniel Tachaux and his assistant Sergt. Jacquest Bartel, of the Ord. Dept. American soldiers wearing this armor have gone into actual battle to test the effectiveness of the covering, and upon the result of the experiments depends whether the soldiers are to wear armor. Daniel Tachaux examining the construction of a suit of battle armor of the 16th century, to adopt its good points in designing modern armor

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- For the fourth time in Space Shuttle Program history, 350,000 gallons of water are released on a Mobile Launcher Platform (MLP) at Launch Pad 39A during a water sound suppression test. Because of the unusual event, media and workers watch from nearby vantage points on the Fixed Service Structure (left). This test is being conducted following the replacement of the six main system valves, which had been in place since the beginning of the Shuttle Program and had reached the end of their service life. Also, the hydraulic portion of the valve actuators has been redesigned and simplified to reduce maintenance costs. The sound suppression water system is installed on the launch pads to protect the orbiter and its payloads from damage by acoustical energy reflected from the MLP during launch. The system includes an elevated water tank with a capacity of 300,000 gallons. The tank is 290 feet high and stands on the northeast side of the Pad. The water is released for launch just before the ignition of the orbiter's three main engines and twin solid rocket boosters, and flows through parallel 7-foot-diameter pipes to the Pad area.

Four robots vie for position on the playing field during the 1999 FIRST Southeastern Regional robotic competition held at KSC. Powered by 12-volt batteries and operated by remote control, the robotic gladiators spent two minutes each trying to grab, claw and hoist large, satin pillows onto their machines. Student teams, shown behind protective walls, play defense by taking away competitors' pillows and generally harassing opposing machines. Two of the robots have lifted their caches of pillows above the field, a movement which earns them points. Along with the volunteer referees, at the edge of the playing field, judges at right watch the action. FIRST is a nonprofit organization, For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology. The competition comprised 27 teams, pairing high school students with engineer mentors and corporations. The FIRST robotics competition is designed to provide students with a hands-on, inside look at engineering and other professional careers KSC-99pd0278

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -  Jim Landy, NDE specialist with USA, points to   an area of a Reinforced Carbon Carbon panel just examined using flash thermography. A relatively new procedure at KSC, thermography uses high intensity light to heat areas of the panels. The panels are then immediately scanned with an infrared camera. As the panels cool, any internal flaws are revealed. The gray carbon composite RCC panels are attached to the leading edge of the wing of the orbiters.  They have sufficient strength to withstand the aerodynamic forces experienced during launch and reentry, which can reach as high as 800 pounds per square foot.  The operating range of RCC is from minus 250º F to about 3,000º F, the temperature produced by friction with the atmosphere during reentry.  The panels will be installed on the orbiter Discovery, designated  for the first Return to Flight mission, STS-114.

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA.  -  During the 2006 FIRST Robotics Regional Competition held March 9-11 at the University of Central Florida in Orlando, Kennedy Space Center Director Jim Kennedy greets members of one of the robotic teams.  To the left of Kennedy is Neil Berger, the center director's intern; at right of Kennedy is Chris Fairey, retired NASA and Regional Planning Committee co-chair.  The FIRST  Robotics Competition challenges teams of young people and their mentors to solve a common problem in a six-week timeframe using a standard "kit of parts" and a common set of rules. Teams build robots from the parts and enter them in a series of competitions.  FIRST, which is based on "For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology," redefines winning for these students. Teams are rewarded for excellence in design, demonstrated team spirit, gracious professionalism and maturity, and ability to overcome obstacles. Scoring the most points is a secondary goal. Winning means building partnerships that last.  NASA and the University of Central Florida are co-sponsors of the regional event, which this year included more than 50 teams.

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. - In Orbiter Processing Facility bay 3, STS-120 crew members practice handling tools they will use during the mission.  From left are Mission Specialist Stephanie D. Wilson, Pilot George D. Zamka and Commander Pamela A. Melroy.  The STS-120 crew is at Kennedy for a crew equipment interface test, or CEIT, which includes harness training, inspection of the thermal protection system and camera operation for planned extravehicular activities, or EVAs. The STS-120 mission will deliver the Harmony module, christened after a school contest, which will provide attachment points for European and Japanese laboratory modules on the International Space Station. Known in technical circles as Node 2, it is similar to the six-sided Unity module that links the U.S. and Russian sections of the station. Built in Italy for the United States, Harmony will be the first new U.S. pressurized component to be added.  The STS-120 mission is targeted to launch on Oct. 20.
