Shuttle Carrier Aircraft / Solid Rocket Booster Retrieval Ships

This effort involved the collection of history from key individuals associated with the agency’s Shuttle Carrier Aircraft (SCA) and Solid Rocket Booster (SRB) Recovery programs. The interviews include information on a number of aspects from concept development to retirement, and focus on development and operations.

Additionally, the SCAs and the SRB Retrieval Ships now have their own websites as part of NASA’s Space Shuttle Recordation Website.
