Past Reentry Intercepts


Paul Maley, United Space Alliance, NASA/Johnson Space Center
We describe examples of video imagery taken during interception of the reentry trajectory of the Space Shuttle (nondestructive) and External Tank (destructive) as observed from the ground using low light gathering methods. In addition because of the analogy to ATV, we present video taken of Soyuz and Progress reentries from the vantage point of ISS.
