Space Shuttle Glider is a scale model of the U.S. Space Shuttle orbiter. The airplane-like orbiter usually remains in Earth orbit for up to two weeks at a time. It normally carries a six- to seven-person crew which includes the mission commander, pilot, and several mission and/or payload specialists who have specialized training associated with the payloads and experiments being flown on that mission. This brief provides a hands-on activity for building a model of the Space Shuttle. (ASK)
