OHIO ART TOY SPACE SHUTTLE


DISCUSSION

Birthed in the cargo bay of the OHIO ART SPACE SHUTTLE is an orbital maneuvering vehicle (OMV). An OMV is a type of space tug boat whose mission is to move space satellites, cargo, and structures in orbit without the aid of the space shuttle. The space shuttle deploys the OMV with the Remote Manipulator System (RMS) robotic arm. The toy space shuttle pictured above has two astronauts seated side by side. Though the astronauts have helmets, their faces are exposed to the vacuum of space. The astronauts should be isolated from the environment of space using space suits and sealed helmets in order to survive.
