You are about to embark on a spectacular adventure, blazing a trail for future space travel in the world's greatest flying machine.
Prepare for lift-off using the step-by-step instructions for launch and ascent. Soar into the sky consulting the authentic gatefold reproduction of the Shuttle's instrument panel. Operate the remote manipulator arm, the space telescope, and the data relay satellite as you communicate with ground control. Chart your space flight using the authentic fold-out orbital map. Hurtle back through the Earth's atmosphere to land the aircraft gently like a glider.
Congratulations! We hope your mission is rewarding and fascinating!
