Is art allowed here?

Shuttles, Stations, and Spacewalkers by Bob McCall, from such an optimistic era.

This 1979 mural depicting multiple shuttles, stations and astronauts at work is on display in the auditorium at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston.

Shuttle arrived at the Space Station Freedom. The concept of the baseline configuration was close to the real space station.

If you remember, the original Rocketdyne turbo pumps had to be removed after every flight and completely overhauled. They were a major safety worry at NASA as a high risk of in flight failure. NASA contracted with P&W to develop alternate oxygen and hydrogen turbo pumps that had significantly higher reliability and could operate 10 missions between overhauls.

Link to the Critical Design Review of the alternate Oxygen turbo pump, if you are interested in what goes on in the engineering of these pumps: https://gandalfddi.z19.web.core.windows ... 930802.pdf
