From the 1950's, long before Man had even stepped foot on the moon, scientists had been working on the design of a 'reusable' Shuttle. A craft able to reach the earth's orbit whilst carrying explorers and cargo, then safely return to earth to be taken back up again only weeks later. From the early days towing the "flying bathtub" behind a Pontiac convertible through to the Space Shuttle Enterprise, advances in technology and understanding slowly progressed. Over the following 30 years came Columbia, Challenger, Discovery, Atlantis, and Endeavour. Throughout the Shuttles lifetime we have observed vast amounts of both triumph and tragedy, yet these amazing machines continued to act on behalf of not only a nation, but all of humankind. Collection Editions: Space Shuttle brings together an entire history of the shuttle. Right from the original testing though to the last ever shuttle launch. Learn about designing a shuttle or becoming an astronaut, preparation for a shuttle launch, how astronauts learn to fly the shuttle, the future of NASA and the Orion program, shuttle rescue programs and procedures, all 135 shuttle launches in detail and so much more.
