New Website Coming - 4th June 2018

It will be 7 years on March 13th since we launched SpaceVids back in 2011 and 5 years since the launch of the website - Since then the website has outgrown the Space sector and is in dire need of an upgrade. To mark the 5th anniversary we will be launching a brand new stunning website on April 2nd June 4th 2018, The new website will have all of the same videos along with historical data in a fully responsive view.

We have pushed launch back into June by a month to allow us to ensure the historical videos are all imported properly.

STS-135 External Tank Scanned and Engine Valve Work

On June 20, technicians continued taking Computed Radiography (CR) X-ray scans of 50 support beams, called stringers, on space shuttle Atlantis’ external fuel tank.

Technicians also are replacing the main fuel valve in Atlantis’ space shuttle main engine No. 3, which apparently developed a small liquid hydrogen leak during the tanking test. The work is expected to take about a week, which still would support Atlantis’ targeted July 8 launch date for its STS-135 mission to the International Space Station. The 12-day flight is the last mission of the Space Shuttle Program.
