Additional Details:
The third space shuttle vehicle (STS-3) thunders aloft on twin clouds of fire, beginning a planned week-long mission for Commander Jack Lousma and Pilot Gordon Fullerton. The reusable spacecraft Columbia began it's third trip into orbit at a fraction of a second before 11:00 a.m. EST on March 22, carrying an OSS-1 pallet of experiments to sense the orbiter's environment and observe the sun, two experiments for materials processing and two for studying plant-growth in zero-gravity, a "getaway special" canister and the remote manipulator system.
