Transcript of "Canadian contributions"

  1. 1. 01/30/15Sunday SPACE Canadian Firsts in Space.
  2. 2. 01/30/15 The Avro Arrow and the Man On Moon
  3. 3. 01/30/15  Canadians played an important role in Apollo.  When the Canadian government cancelled the CF-105 Avro Arrow program in 1959, the U.S. space agency NASA hired 31 engineers from Avro Canada.
  4. 4. 01/30/15  Jim Chamberlin, the leader of the Avro group, made major contributions to the U.S. Moon effort.  Chamberlin was head of engineering in the Mercury Program, and then designed the Gemini spacecraft and served as Gemini's first program manager.  He also played a key role in deciding how Apollo would go to the Moon, and he served as an engineering troubleshooter for Apollo.  Chamberlin was born in Kamloops B.C. and raised in Toronto.
  5. 5. 01/30/15  Owen Maynard, a native of Sarnia, Ontario, was head of systems engineering in the Apollo Spacecraft Program Office.  Maynard was the first person in NASA to start design work on the lunar module, and as head of systems engineering, he was responsible for integration and coordination of various spacecraft systems.  He also drew up the plan of missions leading up to the first lunar landing on Apollo 11.
  6. 6. 01/30/15  Bryan Erb played a key role in developing Apollo's heat shield, and his contributions to the U.S. and Canadian space programs continue up to today's International space station.  Six lunar modules, starting with Apollo 11's Eagle, landed on the Moon using legs that were made by Héroux Machine Parts Ltd. of Longueuil, Québec. These legs were left behind on the Moon with the descent stages of the lunar modules
  7. 7. 01/30/15 First Satellite  Canada's first satellite was called Alouette. When Canada launched Alouette on September 29, 1962, Canada became the third country in the world to have a satellite in orbit, after the Soviet Union and the United States.
  8. 8. 01/30/15 First Robotic Arm in Space  Canadarm 1
  9. 9. 01/30/15 George J. Klein – Inventor and Engineer of Canadarm

  18. 18. 01/30/15 Julie Payette
  19. 19. 01/30/15 Canada’s First Space Telescope  MOST is a suitcase-sized (65 cm x 65 cm x 30 cm, 60 kg) microsatellite designed to probe stars and extrasolar planets by measuring tiny light variations undetectable from Earth.  This can be done with such a small telescope (15 cm aperture) thanks to new Canadian attitude control technology.
  20. 20. 01/30/15 Canada’s Satellites  Animation 1  Animation 2  Radarsat 1  Radarsat 2 – the Americans refused to launch Radarsat 2 for us because they thought it was a threat to their national security. The Russians launched it for us instead.
  21. 21. 01/30/15 Each group researches one and presents to class  Marc Garneau,  Roberta Bondar, Julie Payette, Chris Hadfield, Bob Trisk, Steve  MacLean, Dave Williams, Bjarnie Trygvasson, and George J. Klein  Inventor of canadarm  http://www.asc- csa.gc.ca/eng/astronauts/ default.asp
