εξωτερική συνδετική φλάντζα
Explanation:
The shuttle was equipped with two rocket boosters that send the rocket into orbit. The boosters are fastened together by field joints and the O-rings seal the joints. The seals then restrain the burning fuel from leaking out of the rocket boosters. If the temperature is too cold, the O-rings will not seal properly.
