The Space Shuttle: Triumph and Tragedy

The Space Shuttle: Triumph and Tragedy tells the story of NASA’s iconic Space Shuttle programme – from its very first test flight to its final mission. The Shuttle heralded a new era in space exploration, was instrumental in launching the Hubble telescope and in building the International Space Station but there was also a secret side to the programme. The Shuttle was designed as a military craft that would give the United States the edge over the Soviet Union and bring about an end to the cold war.
