Abstract:

Contains the original NASA film describing Skylab, America's first scientific space station. On the unmanned launch of Skylab 1, mission-threatening problems arose. Scientists had determined excessive heating was due to the loss of a meteoroid shield and the low power supply was due to ineffective solar panel deployment. Skylab 2 would have to be a repair mission if this program were to survive. Astronauts had to perform deep-water executions to practice the repair. Thanks to planning and training, they were successful, and were able to proceed with biomedical and scientific experiments and even enjoyment of the weightlessness. The film also shows the special equipment aboard designed to provide a vast amount of information about solar physics, stellar astronomy, space physics, Earth observations, life sciences, and materials sciences.
