Naming in the US Space Shuttle (STS) program

The shuttle is officially referred to as the Space Transportation System (STS). Specific shuttle missions are therefore designated with the prefix "STS." Initially, the launches were given sequential numbers indicating order of launch, such as STS-9. For the American instrumental rock band, see Sound Tribe Sector 9. ...


Beginning in 1984, each mission was assigned a code, such as STS-41-B, with the first digit indicating the federal fiscal year offset into the program (so 41-B was scheduled for FY 1984, 51-L originally for FY 1985 and the third flight in FY 1995 would have been named 151-C), the second digit indicating the launch site (1 was Kennedy Space Center and 2 was Shuttle Launch Complex (SLC) 6 at Vandenberg Air Force Base, although Vandenberg was never used), and the letter indicating scheduling sequence. These codes were assigned when the launches were initially scheduled and were not changed as missions were delayed or rescheduled. // Crew Vance Brand (flew on Apollo-Soyuz, STS-5, STS-41-B & STS-35), Commander Robert L. Gibson (flew on STS-41-B, STS-61-C, STS-27, STS-47 & STS-71), Pilot Bruce McCandless II (flew on STS-41-B & STS-31), Mission Specialist Ronald E. McNair (flew on...

After the Challenger disaster, a sequential numbering system was restored, with the number according to counting from the beginning, although, unlike the initial system, the assignment of numbers is based on the initial schedule and may not reflect launch order. The letter indicates that the intermediate numbering system applies, and e.g. flight STS-51 was many years after STS-51-A. The launch of the Space Shuttle Challenger on mission 51L/STS-33, the 25th of the STS (Space Transportation System) program, began at an estimated time of 16:38:00. ... // Frank L. Culbertson, Jr. ... STS 51-A was the fourteenth flight of a Space Shuttle and the second flight of Discovery. ...


STS-300 was the designation for the Space Shuttle rescue missions to be launched on short notice for STS-114 and STS-121. After STS-121, the rescue flight for STS-115, if needed, would have been STS-301. After STS-115, the rescue mission designations changed again. They are now based on the corresponding regular mission that would be replaced should the rescue mission be needed. For example, the STS-116 rescue mission was branded STS-317, because the normal mission scheduled after STS-116 was STS-117. Should the rescue mission be needed, the crew and vehicle for STS-117 would assume the rescue mission profile and become STS-317. STS-300 is the designation of the mission which will be mounted to rescue the crew of Space Shuttle mission STS-121 if their shuttle is deemed unable to make a successful reentry; STS-301 is the rescue mission designation in case of the shuttle used in STS-115 becoming...
