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.

Moog has provided the hardware and engineering expertise to support launches since then. Moog’s Space and Defense Group supports on average two launches every month occurring across three different continents. Moog’s support ranges from servovalves used in Thrust Vector Control (TVC) actuators to the entire TVC system including the actuators, batteries, and control avionics; critical support brackets for main engine applications; valves for upper stage applications that control the super cold cryogenic liquid propellants; and a wide range of valves and actuators used throughout the launch vehicle including the valves and thrusters used for roll and reaction control systems.

NASA MMS Satellites to Study Reconnection Launch on United Launch Alliance Atlas V with Support from Moog
