Abstract

She was not returning from an ambitious science mission, trailing double sonic booms in her wake as she swept into California’s desolate Edwards Air Force Base or the marshy expanse of the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Nor was she roaring into orbit under the combined thrust of two immense Solid Rocket Boosters and three main rocket engines to deploy an important satellite, upgrade a world-class observatory or haul hardware aloft for the International Space Station.
