The Space Shuttle program is NASA's manned space program that ran during the post-Apollo era from 1981 to 2011. It flew 135 missions, of which 133 of them were successful (the other two led to the catastrophic failures that killed a total of 14 astronauts in 1986 and 2003). There are five operational Space Shuttle orbiters built (Columbia, Challenger, Discovery, Atlantis, Endeavour), with the first two destroyed in the aforementioned accidents. See the table below to view each shuttle mission by date


Some shuttle missions don't work properly without the following add-ons installed

  • Hubble Space Telescope
  • International Space Station
  • Mir
  • Solar Maximum Mission


    Here are the add-ons that will populate the payload bay of a specific Shuttle mission

    • ACTS
    • Chandra
    • Compton
    • Earth Radiation Budget Satellite
    • EURECA
    • Galileo
    • HS-376
    • INSAT-1
    • Intelsat-VI
    • LAGEOS
    • Long Duration Exposure Facility
    • Magellan
    • Satcom-K
    • Syncom-IV/Leasat
    • SDS-2/Quasar
    • Tracking & Data Relay Satellite
    • UARS
    • Ulysses


      • All 135 shuttle missions included here will not appear on the Present Day. Adjust your date and time according to the dates given on the Table below
      • By default, most of the Shuttle missions have empty payload bays, but that can be filled up by the additional add-ons written above
