Space Shuttle Orbiter Paper Airplane

Hello everyone! 
Today's paper airplane is a Space Shuttle orbiter. The Space Shuttle orbiter was the reusable spaceplane component of the Space Shuttle program. Operated by NASA, this vehicle could carry astronauts and payloads into low Earth orbit, preform in-space operation, then re-enter the atmosphere and land as a glider, retuning its crew and any on-board payload to Earth. The first Space Shuttle that was launched, was the Space Shuttle Columbia on April 12,1981.
The last Space Shuttle launched, was the Space Shuttle Atlantis on July 8, 2011. The Space Shuttle was retired on July 21, 1981.
