The Space Shuttle orbiter was the orbital spacecraft of the Space Shuttle program operated by NASA, the space agency of the United States. The orbiter was a reusable winged "space-plane", a mixture of rockets, spacecraft, and aircraft. This space-plane could carry crews and payloads into low Earth orbit, perform on-orbit operations, then re-enter the atmosphere and land as a glider, returning its crew and any on-board payload to the Earth. A total of six Orbiters were built for flight: Atlantis, Challenger, Columbia, Discovery, Endeavour and Enterprise.
This handcrafted model collection is painstakingly built by our skilled craftsmen with a wealth of detail and makes a great gift for any space buff or history fan.
