I’m a huge supporter of the United States Space Program, both the military and civilian branches, and this painting is a tribute to them. I love traveling to new places, and for me, outer space would be the ultimate adventure in this physical universe.
About the U.S. Space Shuttle
The Space Shuttle is a retired spacecraft system operated by NASA from 1981 to 2011 as part of the United States Space Shuttle program. It was intended to be a partially reusable spacecraft that would be launched like a rocket and landed on a runway like a glider. The space shuttle launched astronauts and cargo into space and returned them safely.
Six space shuttles have been built for the United States Space Program since its inception. The first space shuttle, Enterprise, was a prototype that was carried on its maiden voyage by a Boeing 747, but it never made it into space. Challenger, Columbia, Discovery, Atlantis, and Endeavour were the other five space shuttles. All five went on space missions.
