The space shuttle program has been developed by North American Rockwell and a group of associate contractors on behalf of NASA since 1971. Development and development work was carried out in the framework of a joint program of NASA and the Air Force. When creating the system, a number of technical solutions for the lunar modules of the Apollo program of the 1960s were used: experiments with solid-fuel boosters, systems for separating them, and receiving fuel from an external tank. A total of five shuttles were built (two of them died in accidents) and one prototype. Space flights were carried out from April 12, 1981, to July 21, 2011.

In 1985, NASA planned that by 1990 there would be 24 launches per year, and each of the ships would complete up to 100 flights into space. In practice, they were used much less – for 30 years of operation, 135 starts were made. Most of all flights made the space shuttle Discovery.
