From the box: The U.S. Space Shuttle is a reusable spaccraft selected by NASA to replace the expensive single-use rockets of previous space programs. The shuttle's three main components are the orbiter, external fuel tank and solid rocket boosters. The fuel tank is the largest part of the space shuttle. It holds the liquid oxygen and hydrogen fuel used during takeoff. The solid rocket boosters, or SRB's, rest on either side of the guel tank. The boosters produce the 2.5 million pounds of thrust needed to launch the shuttle into orbit. By the time the shuttle has climbed to a height of 68 miles, the solid rocket boosters and the fuel tank have separated and fallen to earth for retrieval. The boosters are repaired and used in future launches. However, the large fuel tank can not be reused. After the tanks and solid rocket boosters separate, the shuttle orbiter contines its flight, using 44 small thrusters and rockets to reach its final orbit. At the mission's end, the orbiter returns to Earth and glides to a halt on the runway. Shuttle missions usually land at Cape Canaveral, Florida, but in cases of bad weather it can land at several bases worldwide and be transported back to florida on a converted Boeing 747.
