STSC was NASA's 11th Space Shuttle mission, and the fifth mission of Space Shuttle launch, which took place on April 6,marked the first direct ascent trajectory for a shuttle mission. During the mission, Challenger's crew captured and repaired the malfunctioning Solar Maximum Mission ("Solar Max") satellite, and deployed the Long Duration Exposure Facility (LDEF Crew size: 5.

STSD was the 12th flight of NASA's Space Shuttle program, and the first mission of Space Shuttle was launched from Kennedy Space Center, Florida, on 30 Augustand landed at Edwards Air Force Base, California, on 5 commercial communications satellites were deployed into orbit during the six-day mission, and a number of scientific experiments were size: 6.

The foot-tall, foot-wide Office of Application and Space Technology (OAST-1) solar wing extended from the payload bay.

The wing carried different types of solar cells and extended to its full height several times. It demonstrated large lightweight solar arrays for a future in building large facilities in space such as a space station.
