Posted in Uncategorized by confuciustimes on March 21, 2008

STS-75 was a NASA Space Shuttle mission, the 19th mission of the Columbia orbiter. It launched on the February 22, 1996.

The primary objective of STS-75 was to carry the Tethered Satellite System Reflight (TSS-1R) into orbit and to deploy it spaceward on a conducting tether. See first video for futher explaination.

The STS-75 tether videos are remarkable scenes and convey a powerful impression of large, distant circular unknowns. The video is visually striking.
