EOSS Flight Archives

Summary of all Flights

The Flight History Page examines all flights as a group. For information about a particular flight beyond that limited data see the recap below for that flight.

Flight Historical Recaps 1 through 150

Recap and Pre-Flight Announcement Files

  • Click on Flight designations to see full recap of flight.
  • Under the Ans (Announcement) column, if there is a yes, you can click on it and see the original flight announcement.

Flight recaps from 1 through 12 were reconstructed from the EOSS Handbook and telemetry logs and so are somewhat brief. Flights from 13 through 15 were reconstructed entirely from memory and from telemetry logs and are extremely brief.

The similarity of the Flight Announcement files and the Recap files is no coincidence. However, I post these announcement files so that you may see what we planned as opposed to what we ended up actually flying.

Most telemetry files are linked from their associated Flight Recap pages. However, I used to place all telemetry into a zip file for flights preceding EOSS-063. You can see which of these flights had telemetry files and download them by following the menu link to the left to the "Telemetry Files".

The "Telemetry Graphs" link just shows a typical flight's telemetry. Just about all our flights will generate the same telemetry. Naturally there will be minor variations due to season, and other factors, but this one page gives a pretty fair overview of what is happening up above our heads.
