Aerial view of Shuttle STS-6 on way to launchpad

Space shuttle Challenger, mission STS-6, seen here climbing the ramp to the launchpad at Kennedy Space Centre, Florida. STS-6 was Challenger's first flight, commencing on 5th April 1983 and ending five days later. The mission saw the launch of the TDRS-1 space communications satellite using the Interim Upper Stage (IUS). This is a booster attached to the satellite allowing injection from the Shuttle's low altitude orbit into one sufficiently high for geostationary positioning. The mission also saw the Shuttle's first space walks, by D Peterson ands Musgrave
