Summary

The original finding aid described this as:

Description: Sequence of photos (083-111)depicting the deployment of the Syncom IV (LEASAT-2) satellite by the STS-41D crew. From the extreme aft portion of Discovery's payload bay the Syncom IV satellite begins to separate, like a frisbee, from the shuttle orbiter. Other payloads and/or their support hardware in the payload bay (forground to aft) are the OAST-1 package and the protective shield for the now vacated SDS-4 satellite. The Canadian-built remote manipulator system (RMS) arm rests at the right. The Earth's horizon can be seen at the top of the frame.

U.S. National Archives

The objects in this collection are from The U.S. National Archives. The U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) was established in 1934 by President Franklin Roosevelt. NARA keeps those Federal records that are judged to have continuing value—about 2 to 5 percent of those generated in any given year. There are approximately 10 billion pages of textual records; 12 million maps, charts, and architectural and engineering drawings; 25 million still photographs and graphics; 24 million aerial photographs; 300,000 reels of motion picture film; 400,000 video and sound recordings; and 133 terabytes of electronic data. All of these materials are preserved because they are important to the workings of Government, have long-term research worth, or provide information of value to citizens.

Disclaimer: A work of the U.S. National Archives is "a work prepared by an officer or employee" of the federal government "as part of that person's official duties." In general, under section 105 of the Copyright Act, such works are not entitled to domestic copyright protection under U.S. law and are therefore in the public domain.
