Shuttle Designs

I ran across the neatest book ever in the library. The title and details are in the sketch. I love this book to bits, it is as thick as a textbook and has reams and reams of info on the space shuttle and the design process that dates back to the 60's.

Above are some of the ideas the scientists had for the shuttle and boosters. They're weird configurations but I bet most folks thought the same thing when they first saw Colombia launch in 1981.
