Space Shuttle Launch System 1975-2004 Paperback / softback

Part of the New Vanguard series

Description

The Space Shuttle is one of the oldest and most famous manned launch systems.

The only launch vehicle that has been used for a longer period of time is the Soviet (now Russian) R-7 booster.

By the start of the third millennia, the Space Shuttle had carried crews into space over 85 times.

Although it is not a military structure, the Shuttle had been sold as an all-purpose launch system to be used jointly for military and civilian purposes.

Featuring full-colour photos throughout, this book covers the design, development and operational history of a unique vehicle.
