The Survey of Space Shuttle

Rohit Raju Nikam


Abstract: The Space Shuttle was a spacecraft which was used by the American National Aeronautics and Space Administration, or NASA. Space Shuttles were used to carry astronauts and cargo into space. Cargo such as satellites, parts of a space station or scientific instruments were taken up into space by the space shuttle. The Space Shuttle design was remarkable. The idea of wings in orbit took concrete shape in the brilliant minds of NASA engineers, and the result was the most innovative, elegant, versatile, and highly functional vehicle of its time. The shuttle was indeed an engineering marvel on many counts. Accomplishing these feats required the design of a very complex system. It was a new kind of spacecraft because it could be used again and again. In this paper we summarize the development of space shuttle including assembly, inspection and maintenance.
