Today’s news is a bit more positive, as we learn that the United States has launched it’s first space shuttle into space. The launch didn’t happen on Wednesday as originally planned, but instead on Saturday morning. The space shuttle will be replaced by a new spacecraft, the space station, which is scheduled to launch in mid-2021.
This new shuttle has the same name as the space shuttle, but NASA will be using the name for the new spacecraft, which will orbit the planet Earth. The launch is scheduled for May 28th, but could be pushed back to June 14th if it’s needed for another test mission.
