Equator. All space shuttle launches to the International Space Station use an inclination of degrees. The lower inclination launches allowed for a higher maximum payload weight but are no longer used. High- or low-inclination launches require different contin-gency landing sites, with two or three of the landing sites staffed.

Space cooperation of State.]. The Shuttle Landing Facility at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida has a sinfoot (4, m) concrete runway, 15/ It is designated Runway 15 or 33, depending on the direction of use. The first landing at the SLF was for mission STSB in ; landings were suspended at the site following brake damage and a blown tire during the STSD landing inand.

Long before a space shuttle crew spots its intended landing target, mission controllers closely monitor the spacecraft, the astronauts and the weather at a roster of runways around the globe. Meanwhile, support crews are ready and eager to usher the astronauts in.

Space Shuttle abort modes were procedures by which the nominal launch of the NASA Space Shuttle could be terminated. A pad abort occurred after ignition of the shuttle's main engines but prior to liftoff.

An abort during ascent that would result in the orbiter returning to a runway or to a lower than planned orbit was called an "intact abort", while an abort in which the orbiter would.

For the first three Space Shuttle missions, the trajectory inclination was about 28 degrees which made the U.S. Air Force bases at Zaragoza and Moron in Spain, the most ideal landing sites for TAL.

Later Shuttle missions called for air fields at Dakar, Senegal, and Casablanca, Morocco, as TAL-option landing sites.
