Built without engines or a working heat shield for use as a testbed, she was originally meant to be retrofitted for spaceflight, but design changes and other cheaper options meant it wasnt to be.

She made nine flights successfully before breaking up 73 seconds after launch on the tenth, STS51L on 28 January 1986. The crew of seven was killed and the shuttle fleet grounded for two and a half years as a result. DISCOVERY: After her first flight on 30 August 1984, OV103 went on to complete 39 missions in the next 27 years. She was the first shuttle to retire, having undertaken more spaceflights than any other vehicle, including lifting the Hubble telescope and International Space Station parts into orbit. Her last mission was STS133 on 24 February 2011. Discovery now lives in the Smithsonian Institutions National Air and Space Museum. ATLANTIS: Given the designation OV104, Atlantis first flew on mission STS51J between the 3rd and 7th of October, 1985. She undertook the final ever shuttle mission (STS135), her 33rd, on 08 July 2011. Over a successful career, Atlantis had orbited the Earth 4,848 times, covering a staggering 126 million miles. She is displayed at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. ENDEAVOUR: The fifth and final spaceworthy shuttle to be built (OV105), Endeavour was constructed partly from spares to replace the tragically lost Challenger.
