The maiden flight of the first space shuttle, Columbia, was on April 12, 1981. (On February 1, 2003, following its 28th space flight, Columbia was destroyed during reentr…y, with the loss of its crew of seven astronauts.)
The space shuttle is launched into Outer Space by having it attached to the rocket that launches up as well as the space shuttle and gradually the rocket falls apart and… lands in the Pacific ocean. It often lands there. The space shuttle then continues its mission alone.
Space station. It was also the first ever one to be launched into orbit by the United States of America. it was also in the earlyer (not shuttle) missions
This might not be completely accurate but I'm positive this is the general idea. A space probe is launched from a rocket. When the rocket reaches a certain distance into space…, parts of the rocket that aren't necessary to carry the probe to its destination break loose from the rocket.
The first space to launch in the space was Apollo 11!by,ARYA SHAH
A space probe is an unmanned spacecraft designed to explore the solar system and transmit data back to earth. A satellite is an object that orbits around a planet. By these… definitions the space shuttle is not a space probe and is only sometimes a satellite. It is considered a satellite only when it is in orbit around Earth. However, the space shuttle is not usually referred to as a 'satellite' no matter if it is in orbit or not. Normally it is called a 'launch vehicle.'
There are various reasons 1) Close to the equator which adds boost to rocket to launch. 2) very good geographical corridor to launch satellite(launch corridor). 3)It is towar…ds east side ,earth rotation give advantageous. 4)Good transportation facililty 5)Near to Sea ,in case of failure it will fall into sea. 5) uninhibited land. 6) Atmospheric reasons ,weather conditions should not be problem to launch vehicles,most of the days it should be clear .

A space shuttle isn't a probe, because humans are able to fly it. Not only that, but a space probe is most likely NOT to have life-support systems aboard.
a space shuttle is re-usable
A space probe is an unmanned device that is sent into space for purposes of exploration. The space shuttle is a manned vehicle meant for research and delivering supplies, …equipment, and people into low-Earth orbit.
Skylab was the precursor of the present International Space Station. It was a space station launched by NASA on May 14, 1973, and remained in orbit until July 11, 1979.
The USSR's Sputnik 1 on 4 October 1957.
The International Space Station was assembled in space and is designed to stay there. It is meant as a place of research and as a place for astronauts to stay in space. A …space shuttle is a vehicle that can lauch from Earth into space and then return, something a space station cannot do. Space shuttles transport people and equipment to and from space.
What are the roles of space shuttles and space stations and what features do space probes have in common?
NASA has used space shuttles to perform many important tasks. These include taking satellites into orbit, repairing damaged satellites, and carrying astronauts and equipme…nt to and from space stations. A space station provides a place where long-term observations and experiments can be carried out in space. Each space probe has a power system to produce electricity, a communication system to send and receive signals, and scientific instruments to collect data and perform experiments.
