What's Included in Virtual tour of this chapter
The space shuttle launching station is the place where a space shuttle is placed after all the preparations of launching. We will learn how the space shuttle fires up in the sky. In space, there is no gravity which is basically a force that pulls two objects towards each other. If you want to go outside in space, you have to wear a spacesuit which will protect you from harmful radiation. Space is made up of a dark atmosphere, no air, and harmful radiation. This is why astronauts wear proper gear before stepping outside the space shuttle.
