The Space Shuttle was not designed to go beyond Earth orbit.
Space Shuttle Atlantis.

No. It is in low earth orbit.
An orbital period depends on the altitude of the object. In low earth orbit the space shuttle would orbit Earth in about 88 minutes.
No. The space shuttle can only reach low Earth orbit.
On April 12, 1981 the space shuttle Columbia was the first shuttle to orbit the Earth.
The space shuttle program utilized low earth orbit, above the Earth's atmosphere.
The space shuttle travels in low earth orbit (LEO), from 120 to 380 miles in space.
No. The space shuttle is built for low Earth orbit, not moon landings.
The first space station created only to orbit the earth was called plain old, 'Space Shuttle.'
It didn't. The Space Shuttle is only a low Earth orbit spacecraft.
The second Shuttle into orbit was the Challenger; the first was Columbiachallenger, June 1983
The first space shuttle was launch in 1981. Space shuttle missions do not stay in orbit, they are designed to return to Earth after missions generally lasting 1-2 weeks.
This depends on the type of shuttle and its orbit. The speed can differ from satellite to satellite, therefore a definite answer can not be given about the exact speed of shuttle while it releases satellite.
A trip from Earth to some orbit in space, and back to Earth.
No, the space shuttle was designed for low earth orbit and generally orbits within 200-300 nautical miles of Earth.
It's the Hubble Space Telescope (not Shuttle). It's a big optical telescope in orbit around the Earth.
The space telescope that was carried into Earth orbit by a space shuttle in 1990.
Weight is an expression of the gravitational force acting on an object. When the space shuttle is in orbit around the Earth, it is held there by the Earth's gravity. Since gravity is still acting on the shuttle and the astronauts inside, they still have weight. They are described as "weightless" because an object in orbit is in a constant state of free fall.
