"The grant will help sustain conservation projects that aim to protect threatened species and habitats within the SSME
, as well as the livelihoods of people who depend on them," Paje said.
The first stage of SLS will be powered by three Rocketdyne RD-25D/E rockets, also known as Space Shuttle main engines (SSME
), assisted in the first minutes of flight by two five-segment solid rocket boosters also derived from Shuttle systems.
is the world's most reliable and highly tested large rocket engine ever built, and operates under extreme temperatures ranging from -423 degrees Fahrenheit to 6,000 degrees Fahrenheit - half the surface temperature of the sun.
The company said that the SSME
is the only fully reusable high-performance rocket engine rated for human spaceflight, having delivered the majority of US astronauts into space since its maiden Mission STS-1 on 12 April 1981.
NASA selected its contractors and they went to work, but two critical components of this reusable system--the Space Shuttle main engines (SSME
) and a thermal protection system--would perplex and challenge engineers and ultimately delay the program beyond the target launch date in 1979.
IBM consultants will also support JUST with curriculum development and provide expertise in the area of Services Science Management and Engineering (SSME
These courses were Computer Programming I, offered by the Secondary Science and Math Education Department (SSME
) for freshmen; Applications of Authoring Languages in an Internet Environment, offered for juniors by the Computer Education and Instructional Technologies Department (CEIT); and Design, Development, and Evaluation of Educational Software, offered by the same department for seniors.
The Space Shuttle Main Engine (SSME
) is arguably the most ambitious, most successful liquid rocket engine program in history.
He said IBM is investing in service innovation by pushing for its Services Science, Management and Engineering (SSME
) curriculum among the academe, IT industry, and government.
Information technology company IBM (NYSE:IBM) announced on Monday (13 April) it is collaborating with more than 250 universities in 50 countries that are offering courses or degree programs in Service Science, Management and Engineering (SSME
In a volume published for the American Astronomical Society (AAS), the principal engineer for the Space Shuttle Main Engine (SSME
) project, who directed the engine tests from 1975-1985, presents an illustrated history of the development of this pivotal component of the US space program.
This year saw ITIDA join forces with multinationals operating in Egypt -- such as IBM -- to promote investments, including Egypt's first Nanotechnology Center, training and human recourses development services through introducing the Science, Management and Engineering (SSME
) into Egyptian universities' curricula and the establishment of a new IBM Egypt Global Delivery Center.
