The Challenger launched on its first voyage in 1983. It completed the mission of first spacewalk of the Space Shuttle program and was the first satellite in the Tracking and Data Relay System constellation. It was the first orbiter to launch and land at night on mission STS-8 and Challenger was the first to carry two U.S. female astronauts on mission STS 41-G. It made the first Space Shuttle landing at Kennedy Space Center. After nine successful missions, the Challenger launched on STS-51L on January 28, 1986. 73 seconds into the mission, the Challenger exploded. The loss of Challenger did not negate the work of NASA but encouraged it to continue to better mankind in space flight and in life on Earth.

Rockwell Space Shuttle

Designed as a re-usable spacecraft for orbital human spaceflight, the Space Shuttle first flew on April 12, 1981. This American spacecraft system has flown more than 130 times, undergoing a variety of missions from satellite launch to space science experiments and construction and repair of space stations. The system is comprised of an external tank, two solid rocket boosters and an orbiter vehicle, which carries the crew and payload. The shuttle stack launches vertically, and the orbiter returns to Earth horizontally at the end of each mission. The shuttle has more than 2.5 million parts, making it one of the most complex machines ever built.
