The Space Shuttle at 40

Here’s a big idea: What if we could fly to space like we fly around the world? That’s not science fiction – that’s the reality of the Space Shuttle Program! From 1981 to 2011, space shuttles flew astronauts and payloads to space and then returned to Earth, like a plane returning to an airport. NASA used them for critical projects in a variety of ways, like launching satellites, servicing the Hubble Space Telescope, and helping build the International Space Station. On this episode, we’ll discuss the history and science of this one-of-a-kind spacecraft.
