NASA. The impressive silhouette of the "TRACKING AND DATA RELAY SATELLITE" (TDRS-E) stands out against a dramatic Earth sky, with its carrier rocket at the base to carry it into its final orbit. TDRS-E majestically emerges from the payload bay of the space shuttle ATLANTIS (Mission STS-43). TDRS-E is built by TRW, and after its commissioning tests will be christened TDRS-5. It will replace its predecessor TDRS-3. This type of space-to-ground tracking and data relay satellite enables orbital communications, direct television transmissions from space and continuous dialogue between astronauts and ground control stations. August 2, 1991.
