Launching for the first time in 1981 as part of the Space Shuttle Program, the Space Shuttle is a Low Earth Orbital spacecraft responsible for the manned orbital launch and re-entry into Earth's atmosphere. Making history as the first reusable spacecraft, the Space Shuttle became the first spacecraft to transport communication satellites to and from orbit. On various missions the Space Shuttle has launched crews between 2-7 members, transporting them within the Orbiter, and boasts two solid rocket boosters. Operational between 1981-2011, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's initiative produced five of the spacecraft, and completed 133 successful missions within the program's lifecycle.

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.
