Launch attempt June 25 scrubbed during T-9 minute hold due to failure of orbiter's back-up general purpose computer (GPC). Launch attempt June 26 aborted at T-4 seconds when GPC detected anomaly in orbiter's number three main engine.To preserve launch schedule of future missions, 41-D cargo remanifested to include payload elements from both 41-D and 41-F flights; 41-F mission cancelled. 29 delayed when discrepancy noted in flight software of Discovery's master events controller relating to solid rocket booster fire commands. A software patch was verified and implemented to assure all three booster fire commands were issued in the proper time interval. 30 delayed six minutes, 50 seconds when private aircraft intruded into warning area off coast of Cape Canaveral.
Launch Weight: 263,477 lbs. Orbit: Altitude: 184nm Inclination: 28.5 degrees Orbits: 97 Duration: Six days, zero hours, 56 minutes, four seconds. Distance: 2,490,000 miles Hardware: SRB: BI-011 SRM: 013LW(HPM) ET : 13/LWT-6 MLP : 2 SSME-1: SN-2109 SSME-2: SN-2018 SSME-3: SN-2021 Landing: September 5, 1984, 8:37:54 s. PDT, Runway 17, Edwards Air Force Base, Calif.Rollout distance: 10,275 feet. Landing planned for Edwards desert runway because it was Discovery's first flight. Landing Weight: 201,674 lbs. Mission Highlights: Three satellites deployed: Satellite Business System SBS-D, SYNCOM IV-2 (also known as LEASAT2) and TELSTAR. The 102- foot-tall, 13-loot-wide Office of Application and Space Technology (OAST-1) solar wing extended from payload bay.
Wing carried different types of solar cells and extended to full height several times. It demonstrated large lightweight solar arrays for future in building large facilities in space such as Space Station. Other payloads: Continuous Flow Electrophoresis System (CFES) Ill; Radiation Monitoring Equipment (RME); Shuttle Student Involvement Program (SSIP) experiment; lMAX camera, being flown second time; and an Air Force experiment, Cloud Logic to Optimize Use of Defense Systems (CLOUDS).
