Description

Soon after the start of the space race, a major problem with space flight became obvious: it was really expensive.

The high cost of space flight was in large part due to the fact that every rocket and spacecraft was expendable. Every trip meant a new rocket and a new vehicle. 

To solve this problem, in the early 1970s, the United States launched a new program to create a reusable spacecraft.
