Drawing Upon Skylab's Engineering Legacy

Editor’s note: Update from the Sklab Restoration Project: “We received a request for data about the Multiple Docking Adapter (MDA) docking ports from the Orion project at JSC. The MDA docking port may serve as a guide or model (even a good starting point) for Orion’s passive docking capability. Skylab’s grid decking is servicing as a guide for a new way to mount avionics for Ares 1. It’s good to see the Constellation program is drawing on Skylab.”
