The Schumann resonance is a term to describe the space between the earth and the ionosphere. It does nothing in itself until stimulated by things like lightning whereupon electromagnetic detectors see a peak (or resonance) in responses coinciding with very low frequencies.
Thunderbird claimed generators of such low frequencies were used on the Space Shuttle but this is not so. The Space Shuttle has however been used as a platform for lightning studies and this may be the cause of his confusion. Perhaps he might like to confirm or deny this.
