cd-w Space Shuttle (101 comments)

The United States beat the Soviet Union in developing multiple-use Space Shuttle rockets, which form its current fleet of manned spacecraft.

  • Vulnerable to damage on launch.

  • Very expensive to launch.
  • No launch escape system.
  • Not actually very reusable at all.
