Why was Kalpana Chawala famous?

कल्पना चावला (17 मार्च 1962 - 2003 1 फरवरी), एक भारतीय अमेरिकी वैज्ञानिक और नासा के अंतरिक्ष यात्री थे. वह सात में से एक था स्पेस शटल कोलंबिया हादसे में मारे गए crewmembers.

कल्पना चावला एक पंजाबी परिवार में पैदा हुआ था करनाल, हरियाणा, भारत

चावला टैगोर पब्लिक स्कूल, करनाल में उसके पहले स्कूली शिक्षा पूरी की. वह पंजाब इंजीनियरिंग कॉलेज में वैमानिक इंजीनियरिंग में इंजीनियरिंग की डिग्री प्राप्त की उसे बैचलर कमाया में चंडीगढ़ में 1982. वह 1982 में संयुक्त राज्य अमेरिका चले गए और प्राप्त एक (1984) Arlington में टेक्सास विश्वविद्यालय से एयरोस्पेस इंजीनियरिंग में स्नातक की डिग्री के मास्टर. चावला को 1986 में विज्ञान की डिग्री के एक दूसरे मास्टर कमाने और Boulder पर कोलोराडो विश्वविद्यालय से एक एयरोस्पेस इंजीनियरिंग में 1988 में पीएचडी की डिग्री पर चला गया. चावला ने मार्च 1995 में नासा के अंतरिक्ष यात्री कोर में शामिल हुए और 1998 में अपनी पहली उड़ान के लिए चुना गया था. उसका पहला अंतरिक्ष मिशन छह अंतरिक्ष यात्री दल है कि अंतरिक्ष शटल कोलंबिया की उड़ान अनुसूचित जनजातियों-87 उड़ा के भाग के रूप में 19 नवम्बर 1997 को शुरू हुई. चावला ने पहली भारतीय महिला का जन्म हुआ

सन् 2000 में वह अपनी दूसरी उड़ान के लिए अनुसूचित जनजातियों के चालक दल के हिस्से के रूप में चयनित-107 था. 16 जनवरी 2003 को आखिरकार चावला अंतरिक्ष में लौटे पर सवार कोलंबिया पर बदकिस्मत अनुसूचित जनजातियों-107 मिशन.

Did they know challenger o rings were bad?

There is substantial evidence that at least some of the people responsible for building and maintaining Challenger either knew the O-rings were bad, or were at least likely to go bad.

How did the challenger explode?

The Challenger exploded because the primary and secondary O-rings were stiff from cold weather. They were not put in correctly and not checked. Hot gases leaked thorugh the O-rings and mixed with the fire from take off. The external tank then caught on fire and soon the Challenger exploded, killing the seven passengers including Christa McAuliffe.

Did Chuck Yeager have the right stuff in order to become an astronaut?

Yes, but he wasn't interested or eligible to apply for the astronaut program. He wasn't eligible due to not having a college degree and he wasn't interested because the seven Mercury astronauts weren't selected based on their skills as pilots, they were selected based on their ability to withstand what American scientists guessed were the extreme physical conditions that would be encountered during space flight. Because the astronauts wouldn't really be flying the space craft (which was designed to be flown automatically and remotely from Mission Control), Yeager, as America's hottest test pilot, did not want to become "Spam in a can" as he called the astronauts sitting in their capsule. Essentially he had the right stuff, however he lacked a college degree at the time, thus he wasn't eligible for the initial selection pool. Yes, he did. He was an excellent fighter pilot before becoming a test pilot. He, like many great figher pilots, had vision that was better than 20/20.

Why did the Challenger space shuttle explode?

The breakup of the space shuttle Challenger was caused by the failure of two O- rings in the aft joint in the right solid rocket booster (SRB's) to properly seal due to the cold weather. There had been problems with the seal on other missions, but it is thought that the decision to launch in near-freezing temperatures contributed to the failure, making the seal rigid and unable to seal properly.

It is interesting to note that the rings, manufactured by Thiokol, are just one of a number of synthetic rubbers developed in Germany during the 1930's and their physical/chemical properties are/were well documented in manuals out for decades: the engineers were well aware of the elasticity/resilience failure of Thiokol at low temperatures and advised their superiors of the potential disaster. Unfortunately, the administrators were unwilling to call off the launch. Some believe this was politically motivated. The seal failure led to a catastrophic chain of events. Hot gases escaped through the right Solid Rocket Booster aft field joint, followed by a flame, damaging the clamp securing the SRB, and burning through the external fuel tank causing the tank to disintegrate. The forces created caused the orbiter to disintegrate (it did not explode) before the debris crashed into the ocean.
