Imagine a space shuttle in orbit, its payload bay doors opened wide. Sticking up from that payload bay is a monstrous spy satellite, almost fifty percent longer than the Hubble, with astronauts clustered around it, replacing components and refueling it for further use. That was the vision that a group of contractors and government personnel considered in the 1970s as they contemplated combining the shuttle’s expected capabilities with their latest piece of top secret hardware, the KH-9 HEXAGON reconnaissance satellite.
