Inside Hubble's Control Room During a Spacewalk

Keith Walyus describes the experience of the Servicing Mission 4 spacewalks as head of communications in the Goddard STOCC.

The Space Telescope Operations Control Center, also known as the STOCC, is responsible 24/7, 365 days a year for monitoring all Hubble systems and facilitating all of the telescope's science observations. Two teams of flight controllers designated as the Orbit Team and the Planning Team will work closely with the mission control flight team in Houston in coordinating all of the activities planned as part of the final shuttle servicing mission to the Hubble Telescope.

Data Used:
Wide-Field Planetary Camera 2 (WFPC2) was installed in Dec 1993 and used to obtain high resolution images of astronomical objects. This camera was removed in the last servicing mission so it is no longer in service.
Note: While we identify the data sets used in these visualizations, we do not store any further details nor the data sets themselves on our site.
