NASA : April 14, 1981, Landing of First Space Shuttle Mission .- 14 de abril de 1981,la primera misión de aterrizaje del transbordador espacial

Hola amigos: A VUELO DE UN QUINDE EL BLOG., El 14 de abril de 1981, las ruedas traseras del transbordador espacial Columbia tocaron tierra en el lago seco Rogers en la Base Edwards de la Fuerza Aérea, Centro de la NASA Armstrong Investigación de Vuelo (entonces Dryden Flight Research Center), en el sur de California, para completar con éxito una estancia en espacio de más de dos días. Los astronautas John W. Young, comandante de la misión STS-1, y Robert L. Crippen, piloto, estaban a bordo del vehículo. La misión marcó el primer vuelo de la NASA para terminar con un aterrizaje con ruedas y representó el comienzo de una nueva era de vuelos espaciales que emplean el mismo hardware de forma repetida.
Un área de la base aérea se reservó para la exhibición pública del aterrizaje, y las multitudes contados más de 200.000 personas, con algunas estimaciones de hasta 300.000 visitantes que acudieron al sitio. Los medios de comunicación de todo el mundo añade a la multitud, como radio y televisión camiones de todos los tamaños y formas enrolladas de todas partes.
James Young, Historiador Jefe del Centro de Ensayos en Vuelo de la Fuerza Aérea en la Base Aérea Edwards, recordaba bien el aterrizaje. "Sólo había que estar allí para escuchar, incluso sentir, la doble rendija de la explosión sónica", dijo Young. "Fue una tremenda sensación de excitación tal de ver algo nunca antes visto, para presenciar un evento histórico."

Shuttle Columbia landing on dry lake bed
On April 14, 1981, the rear wheels of the space shuttle orbiter Columbia touched down on Rogers dry lake at Edwards Air Force Base, NASA's Armstrong Flight Research Center (then Dryden Flight Research Center), in southern California, to successfully complete a stay in space of more than two days. Astronauts John W. Young, STS-1 commander, and Robert L. Crippen, pilot, were aboard the vehicle. The mission marked the first NASA flight to end with a wheeled landing and represented the beginning of a new age of spaceflight that would employ the same hardware repeatedly.
An area of the air base was set aside for public viewing of the landing, and crowds numbered well over 200,000 people, with some estimates as high as 300,000 visitors who flocked to the site. Media from around the world added to the throng, as radio and TV trucks of all shapes and sizes rolled in from everywhere.
James Young, Chief Historian of the Air Force Flight Test Center at Edwards AFB, remembered the landing well. "You just had to be there to hear, even feel, the double crack of the sonic boom," Young said. "It was such a tremendous sense of excitement to see something never seen before, to witness such a historic event."
