Moog Celebrates 25th Anniversary of the Launch of the Hubble Space Telescope

24 April 2015

Moog Inc. (NYSE: MOG.A and MOG.B) Space and Defense Group is celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the launch of the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) but the story of Hubble begins nearly 50 years ago. Hubble launched in the payload bay of the Space Shuttle Discovery on April 24, 1990 (STS-31) but was conceived of over two decades previous before man had even landed on the Moon and the Space Shuttle even existed. The Large Space Telescope (LST), as it was called initially, was originally slated for launch in 1979 but funding was cut in 1974. Astronomers lobbied for this telescope that would help unlock the mysteries of the universe. In 1978 NASA resumed funding LST with conjunction of the European Space Agency (ESA) making this a truly international effort. The new launch date was planned for 1983 but later slipped to fall of 1986. The Challenger accident in January 1986 stopped Space Shuttle launches leaving the now named Hubble Space Telescope without a launch vehicle. Finally after two years of investigation the Space Shuttles were cleared to resume flight and Hubble got its launch date 11 years after the initially scheduled date. Hubble is the only space telescope designed to be serviced by astronauts and on five different occasions repairs were performed on-orbit. These repairs and upgrades are expected to extend the life of Hubble until 2020 if not longer.

East Aurora, NY – June 15, 2010. Last update Aug. 16, 2010. ECAPS, a subsidiary of the Swedish Space Corp. (SSC), announced the successful June 15th launch of the Prisma mission on a Dnepr rocket from Yazny, Russia. The pair of Prisma satellites, named Mango and Tango, were separated on August 12 and are flying individually. The GPS on each satellite is functioning normally, and the two satellites performed a formation flying demonstration. Tango experienced its final calibration and is now fully commissioned in preparation for the remainder of the mission. The satellites demonstrate an innovative 3-propellant system: hydrazine, High Performance Green Propellant (HPGP), and micro cold gas. The Prisma mission serves as the trial flight of HPGP and as a demonstration of formation flying and micropropulsion. Moog is proud to be ECAPS’ partner in providing critical hardware and integration support of the Prisma propulsion systems.
