Scope and Contents

Per Bridges, "Notes on meetings and issues from the time of the Challenger mishap until I left the astronaut program to become Wing Commander at Edwards AFB (Jan-May 1986). Most of the meetings had to do with issues with the Centaur upper stage that was to book Ulysses into polar orbit around the sun. This was the payload for mission 61F that I was training to fly as the Pilot at the time of the Challenger mishap. The Centaur and mission were cancelled prior to Discovery's return to flight. The Return to Flight crew was the 61F crew with Dick Covey replacing me as the Pilot.""
