Space Shuttle EVA Cuff Checklist
Introducing the Space Shuttle EVA Cuff Checklist, booklet and arm bracelet.
- An extraordinary replica from the spacewalks (EVA) of Discovery mission STS-82 which flew in February 1997. This was NASA's second mission to service in orbit the Hubble Space Telescope with five successful EVAs lasting 33 hours in total.
- The cuff checklist is all metal construction and painted light grey. The booklet is intended to be easily separated from the arm bracelet without specialist tools.
- The curved shape is designed to keep the booklet open at the required page.
- First few pages are reference EMU operating parameters, Displays and Control Module (DCM) diagram/comms frequencies and airlock procedures.
- Middle pages of the booklet with tabs bordered in red are concerned with EMU malfunction procedures during EVA.
- Remainder of the booklet are notes (with diagrams) on operating various items of Orbiter equipment.
- There are no instructions specific to the Hubble Space Telescope.
- Differences between this Space Shuttle EVA cuff checklist and the Apollo Lunar Surface ones: the bracelet is wider to accommodated the new catch assembly; the pages are wider with only four tabs visible at a time; there is an expandable strap integral to the arm bracelet.
