The Space Shuttle was a partially reusable launch method, and orbital spacecraft operated by the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) for human spaceflight destination . The system combined rocket launch, orbital spacecraft, and re-entry smooth with modular add-nos. The first of four orbital test flights occurred in 1981 leading to operational flights beginning in 1982. It was applied on a total of 135 missions from 1981 to 2011 all launched from the Kennedy Space Center, Florida.
Major missions covered launching numerous satellites, interplanetary probes, the Hubble Space Telescope (HST), conducting space science examination, and constructing and servicing the International Space Station. Major element included the orbiters, recoverable boosters, external tanks, payloads, and supporting infrastructure. Five space-worthy orbiters were built; two were exterminated in mission accidents.The Space Shuttle at launch consisted of the Orbiter conveyance, one external tank (ET), and two Solid Rocket Boosters (SRBs). It was launched vertically like a conventional rocket with kickback from the two SRBs and three main engines. During launch, the external tank shift fuel for the orbiter’s main engines. The SRBs and ET were jettisoned before the orbiter reached orbit. At the end of the orbiter’s space mission, it fired its thrusts to drop out of orbit and re-enter the lower atmosphere. The orbiter Slowly in the atmosphere before flying like a glider but with reaction control system thrusts before landing on a long runway.
