Before venturing into doing something as monumental as launching a space shuttle into space, it must first be met by a number of guidelines as well as limitations.


This is the reason why the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) have a special shuttle program. This ensures that the space shuttles launched into space are of superior quality and the training procedures, as well as other details of the launch itself are well met, so that safety will be ensured.

Space Shuttle ProgramThe NASA’s Space Shuttle Program was created in the 1960s. It is aimed at following a specific guideline of space shuttle designs, the main goal such is the reduction of the present costs of operation without sacrificing the safety and standard guidelines. This includes the creation and development of an engine which maximizes propelling its own weight and desired load, the development of a heat reentry shield, and the development area of a checkout and control system for the autonomous operation of the crew in the space shuttle.

Space shuttle development is dependent on the guidelines of the space shuttle program. The optimal shuttle design which best balances development and operational costs, and capability is being aimed for and striven for in the space shuttle program.
