CAN DO Project - BEST Shuttle Flights

B.E.S.T. Flights

Can Do designed a GAS canister with active and passive experiments on the STS-57 Endeavor when it flew in June 1993.


Can Do designed two drawers of the first flight of the SEMS Module on the STS-80 Columbia in December 1996.

A total of three SEM Modules (one active, two passives) were manifested and flown on STS-85 in August of 1997.


Next SEM flight was STS-91 in June 1998.

When Does Can Do Fly Again?

Teachers and students were very busy preparing experimental payloads during the 1996-1997 school year. In December we prepared payload modules for the SEMS Project with both active and passive experiments included. They flew on STS-85 in August 1997. It had been delayed by the need to refly the STS-83 mission.


Can Do has already prepared experimental vials for a mission on the SEMS Module in the summer of 1998. It was hoped they would fly on STS-87 but were postponed until STS-91.
