Science: Space Shuttle
Since 1981, six Space Shuttles, or STSs (Space Transportation Systems) as NASA calls them, have flown on more than 120 missions, carrying payloads weighing up to 50,000 pounds--that's as heavy as four full grown elephants! And did you know that the shuttle has two Solid Rocket Boosters that are only two feet shorter than the Statue of Liberty, yet weighs three times as much? Combined, they consume 11,000 pounds of fuel per second, or two million times the gas mileage of an average family car!
