How a Shuttle Works
Hello, I am your captain for today and I will tell all about how a shuttle works from take off to landing. When a space shuttle is about to launch it fires up it's engines and begins the process. Then the ground crew counts down from 5,4,3,2,1 and the shuttle blasts off ! A loud Boom fills the air.
The space shuttle is in mid air quickly and shortly after take off the boosters fall into the ocean and a ship comes by to pick them up. Before the space shuttle enters out of space, the fuel tank falls off and falls into the ocean! Now the space shuttle clears the atmosphere!
When it is orbiting in outer space, the absences of gravity keeps it from falling. The main engine propels the space shuttle throughout the galaxy.
The space shuttle has many uses in outer space. Sometimes the space shuttle launches satellites. It also is used to collect research about outer space so we can learn more about our galaxy.
When coming back to landing it lands like and airplane, puts out a parachute and lands. The parachute helps slow it down in order for the shuttle to have a smooth landing.
