Caption

Computer simulation of the surface pressure experienced by the space shuttle during its ascent stage. The colours on the surface of the shuttle represent the varying levels of surface pressure. The airflow model has been set up by NASA engineers at the Ames Research Center using a Cray-2 supercomputer. They are using the numerical simulations to analyse flight performance and crew escape procedures. A masked version of T612/001; without the air flow contours.
