Developed by the US space agency NASA, the "Space Shuttle" is the world's only reusable space transport system.
It consists of the Space Shuttle (Orbiter) components, three reusable main engines, one external fuel tank and two solid rockets with a total takeoff thrust of 12.46 MN (1,270,566 kp).
The space shuttle can simultaneously bring 24.5 tonnes of payload and 7 astronauts in a low Earth orbit between 200 and 650 kilo-meters of railway height.
Since October 3, 1985, the fourth space shuttle "Atlantis" was used in 35 missions. In 2012, the shuttle program was discontinued after more than 30 years.
