Notes: -  Significance: Building 1 has a long history of construction. Originally built in 1929, it was continuously remodeled, added on to, and modified up until 1996. Building 1 is the largest building on the Downey site being 1 million square feet in size. Built during a very significant period of history when aircraft production was just beginning, Building 1 was responsible for the housing and construction of many aircraft under the companies EMSCO, and Vultee. The innovative construction of the folding-wing plane by Kinner was once produced in Building 1, and during WWII under the company Vultee Aircraft Inc., 15 percent of the aircraft supplied for the WWII was built at the Downey site. Vultee was the "first aircraft manufacturing plant to use powered assembly lines, including a mechanized overhead conveyor, Vultee was able to produce more planes in a shorter span of time than any other similar plant."1 This conveyor system was located in Building 1. Not only was Building 1 significant during the aircraft age, but also during the age of missile development and research as well as the Apollo and Space Shuttle programs. Building 1 was used for large subassembly and final assembly operations on both aircraft and spacecraft command and service modules. Building 1 was also the earliest location for astronaut dormitories on the Downey site. Building 1 was utilized during the Space Shuttle program and housed the full-scale mock-up of the space shuttle. Building 1 is considered "the administrative and historical "heart" of the NASA Industrial Plant. Beneath this building's roof there are approximately 22 separate building, some of which are part of the original plant constructed in 1929, and all of which contribute to the plants 70-year history of design, production, and testing for the aircraft/aerospace industry."2 1 National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

Notes: -  Significance: Building 290 was constructed in 1965 and was significantly used until 1999 when the Downey plant was closed. It was very significant during the Apollo and Space Shuttle programs as a Systems Integration and Checkout facility and served as the final assembly facility for the service and command modules of the Apollo program. Building 290 "was the heart of the Apollo program, combined with Building 6."1 Building 290 is also known for housing the world's largest clean room for 9 months before the Soviet Union superseded it with a similar building. Building 290 was the location where the crew module and aft thrust structures were developed for the Apollo program. "In total over 20 vehicles were constructed in the building."2 At one time, a section of Building 290 was converted into dormitories for the astronauts during testing and training for the Apollo Mission. Building 290 was the location of spacecraft assembly and integration for the American Space-Age. Building 290 was used by assemblers, technicians and engineers who worked to create the hardware that was responsible for taking men to the moon and made the International Space Station possible.3 Memorial plaques for all of the astronauts who flew into space during the Space Shuttle program are located at the west facade of Building 290 in order to commemorate their bravery and good works. 1 National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

Notes: -  Significance: The facility was authorized in July 1933 and built by the Public Works Administration for $26,000. It tested complete models of aircraft and aircraft components in a high-speed airstream approaching the speed of sound. Originally capable of testing at Mach 0.75, it was repowered in the 1940s and early 1950s to have a Mach 1.2 potential. The most important contribution of the HST was defining the causes and cures for the sever adverse stability and control problems encountered in high-speed dives. This tunnel also produced the high-speed cowling shapes used in World War II aircraft, and efficient air inlets for jet aircraft. The first 500-MPH analyses of propellers were made here early in the war. After repowering, the 8-Foot Tunnel produced precise transonic data up to Mach numbers as high as 0.92 for such aircraft as the X-1, D-558, and others. Its final achievement was the development and use in routine operations of the first transonic slotted throat. The investigations of wing-body shapes in this tunnel led to Richard Whitcomb's discovery of the transonic area rule. The HST developed an impressive record in aviation history as an example of accomplishment by imaginative researchers.

Notes: -  Significance: The 8-Foot Transonic Pressure Tunnel was the first of Langley's wind tunnels to be built incorporating the new slotted throat tunnel design from its inception. A significant improvement over its retrofitted predecessors, the new tunnel allowed transonic testing in a more stable environment. In the 1960s, Langley engineer Richard T. Whitcomb and his research team used the tunnel to develop the "supercritical airfoil," which would revolutionize military and civilian aircraft design. The 8-Foot Transonic Pressure Tunnel is significant at a national level because of its role in the early development of transonic tunnels and its later role in testing aircraft designs.

Notes: -  Significance: The Orbiter Discovery, OV-103, is considered eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) in the context of the U.S. Space Shuttle Program (1969-2011) under Criterion A in the areas of Space Exploration and Transportation and under Criterion C in the area of Engineering. Because it has achieved significance within the past fifty years, Criteria Consideration G applies. Under Criterion A, Discovery is significant as the oldest of the three extant orbiter vehicles constructed for the Space Shuttle Program (SSP), the longest running American space program to date; she was the third of five orbiters built by NASA. Unlike the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo programs, the SSP's emphasis was on cost effectiveness and reusability, and eventually the construction of a space station. Including her maiden voyage (launched August 30, 1984), Discovery flew to space thirty-nine times, more than any of the other four orbiters; she was also the first orbiter to fly twenty missions. She had the honor of being chosen as the Return to Flight vehicle after both the Challenger and Columbia accidents. Discovery was the first shuttle to fly with the redesigned SRBs, a result of the Challenger accident, and the first shuttle to fly with the Phase II and Block I SSME. Discovery also carried the Hubble Space Telescope to orbit and performed two of the five servicing missions to the observatory. She flew the first and last dedicated Department of Defense (DoD) missions, as well as the first unclassified defense-related mission. In addition, Discovery was vital to the construction of the International Space Station (ISS); she flew thirteen of the thirty-seven total missions flown to the station by a U.S. Space Shuttle. She was the first orbiter to dock to the ISS, and the first to perform an exchange of a resident crew. Under Criterion C, Discovery is significant as a feat of engineering. According to Wayne Hale, a flight director from Johnson Space Center, the Space Shuttle orbiter represents a "huge technological leap from expendable rockets and capsules to a reusable, winged, hypersonic, cargo-carrying spacecraft." Although her base structure followed a conventional aircraft design, she used advanced materials that both minimized her weight for cargo-carrying purposes and featured low thermal expansion ratios, which provided a stable base for her Thermal Protection System (TPS) materials. The Space Shuttle orbiter also featured the first reusable TPS; all previous spaceflight vehicles had a single-use, ablative heat shield. Other notable engineering achievements of the orbiter included the first reusable orbital propulsion system, and the first two-fault-tolerant Integrated Avionics System. As Hale stated, the Space Shuttle remains "the largest, fastest, winged hypersonic aircraft in history," having regularly flown at twenty-five times the speed of sound.

Notes: -  Significance: Discovery, NASA's third Orbiter to join the fleet, was named after one of the two ships that were used by British explorer James Cook in the 1770s. It was the first Orbiter built solely for operations and not for testing and benefited from the knowledge gained from the construction, assembly and testing of the Orbiters Enterprise, Columbia and Challenger. When it was completed, Discovery was almost 7,000 pounds lighter than Columbia. Discovery arrived at the Kennedy Center in Florida on November 9, 1983. After checkout, testing and processing, it was launched on August 30, 1984, for its first mission, 41-D, to deploy three communications satellites. Since its inaugural flight Discovery has completed 39 missions, more flights than any other orbiter in NASA'a fleet, carried 252 crew members, spent 365 days in space and traveled over 148,000,000 miles.

Notes: -  Significance: NASA began construction of the Rocket Engine Test Facility (RETF) in 1955 on land that was formerly part of the Cleveland Municipal Airport. In 1940, the National Advisory Committee on Aeronautics selected 200 acres of the airport site for the construction of an Aircraft Engine Research Laboratory. The site of this original lab and the RETF is the present NASA John H. Glenn Research Center at Lewis Field. The construction of RETF was related to post-war missile development, which required the construction of facilities dedicated to the research and testing of rocket engines and auxiliary equipment...
