ABSTRACT

The American space shuttle program has had a great run overall but every good thing has its shortcomings. Out of 5 space crafts in the program, 2 were destroyed, killing everyone on board.

1. Discovery
2. Atlantis
3. Colombia (was destroyed in the year 1986)
4. Challenger (was destroyed in the year 2003)
