The Space Shuttle was a partially reusable low Earth orbital spacecraft system operated by the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), as part of the Space Shuttle program. Its official program name was Space Transportation System (STS), taken from a 1969 plan for a system of reusable spacecraft of which it was the only item funded for development. The first of four orbital test flights occurred in 1981, leading to operational flights beginning in 1982. Five complete Shuttle systems were built and used on a total of 135 missions from 1981 to 2011, launched from the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Florida. Operational missions launched numerous satellites, interplanetary probes, and the Hubble Space Telescope (HST); conducted science experiments in orbit; and participated in construction and servicing of the International Space Station. The Shuttle fleet's total mission time was 1322 days, 19 hours, 21 minutes and 23 seconds.

First into Outer Space. Theodore Gordon, J., Julian Scheer.
New York: St. Martin's Press, 1959. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Hardcover. xvii, [1], 197, [5] pages. Illustrated endpapers. Illustrations. Glossary. Index. DJ is missing part of spine and is in pieces and has wear, soiling, tears, and chips. Ted Gordon was a Douglas Aircraft engineer who fired the American missile 130 that was the first to penetrate outer space. Mr. Scheer, who had covered the fledgling space program as a newspaper reporter, joined NASA in 1962 as a consultant and was named assistant administrator for public affairs in 1963. Working closely with James E. Webb, the second head of the agency but the most influential of NASA administrators, he built an information program that embraced the news media and fed their appetite for news about space. The result was a steady flow of generally positive public attention during the risky and expensive drive to land a man on the Moon, making public heroes of the early astronauts. After the lunar landing, Mr. Scheer was awarded NASA's highest recognition, the Distinguished Service Medal.
