Excalibur was a NASA manned satellite. The crew discovered the launch vibrations shook the hyrdraulic struts loose. They scrambled back inside when an asteroid was detected to be on a collision course with them. Unable to launch, Hank Henshaw placed his faith in Superman rescuing them. Superman never came. The asteroid debris devastated Excalibur. The crew and Henshaw's wife, Terri, were jettisoned out of the shuttle. The asteroid shot right through the shuttle, blowing it and Henshaw up, as it continued to Earth. Superman later recovered Terri Henshaw's body and flew back to NASA headquarters.
