PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a 17 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on The Space Race - The Shuttle Program. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

Conceived as a means to reduce the cost of space flights, NASA's Shuttle Program originally was supposed to produce completely reusable vehicles, which would make launches routine and relatively cheap. The shuttle was later redesigned as semi-reusable. NASA’s previous space vehicles were costly because they were designed with the expendable launch-system technology, whereby each vehicle was launched, then discarded after one use.

In semi-reusable form, the shuttle completed dozens of successful missions, but 2 disasters have been etched into the nation's collective memory. The original idea of reaching space in vehicles that resembled airplanes rather than rockets dates to before World War II.

NASA's space shuttle program came to its official end on Aug. 31, 2011 after a 30 year run and 135 missions, just almost 1 month after the final mission landed on Earth.

Discovery, is now on display at the Smithsonian's Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in northern VA. Endeavour is on display at the California Science Center in Los Angeles. Atlantis, is on display at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in FL.
NASA's first 2 orbiters to fly, Columbia and Challenger, were lost with their crews to in-flight accidents in February 2003 and January 1986 respectively.
