Shuttle Sensor

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

Does anyone know what technically went wrong in the sensor circuitry on board the shuttle. All I know is the liquid H2 sensor shuts off the external booster when the fuel becomes critically low. During the pre-launch test the sensor indicated the booster was low on fuel, however the tank was completely filled. Does anyone know what caused the sensor to incorrectly measure the amount of fuel in the tank?

Bush's poor NASA budgets have the blame. The deviation of money to Iraq's war has this kind of consequences. :biggrin: :wink: Apart of this I don't know.
