Over a march of a tellurian function from May 25, 1973, to Feb 8, 1974, 3 crews visited Skylab, carried out 270 systematic and technical investigations and logged a total 171 days on orbit. Today, Marshall’s Payload Operations Integration Center serves as “science central” for a International Space Station, operative 24/7, 365 days a year in support of a orbiting laboratory’s systematic experiments. The NASA History Program is obliged for generating, disseminating, and preserving NASA’s conspicuous story and providing a extensive bargain of a institutional, cultural, social, political, economic, technological, and systematic aspects of NASA’s activities in aeronautics and space.
