Description

A completely stock space shuttle saved as Replica STS All-Use Shuttle. Built with 165 parts, it has been tested to carry up to 36 tons into orbit (see YouTube video). Its root part is mk3Cockpit.Shuttle.

As part of ShonenNickGalactic’s (SNG’s) Recoverable Rocket Project, the SNG Shuttle was designed. Its purpose: to ferry cargoes of up to 36 tons to Low-Kerbin-Orbit and return payloads of up to 10 tons safely to the runway - regardless of urgency, orbital inclination, or the time of day.

It was quickly dubbed the Eden to differentiate it from the other shuttle systems of SNG’s times-gone-by, however this model, for use by all of Kerbin’s Space Agencies, has kept the name simple and explanatory - just Shuttle.

Safety was a top priority in the creation of the Eden Shuttle, and as a result it was heavily tested as both an orbiter and a glider prior to the first manned launch. Although the likes of Bob and Lodbart (the Eden’s official test dum- I mean pilot), congratulated the engineering team on their improvements to safety, Jeb felt that all these precautions were unnecessary, and claimed they’d get a much better T/WR if only they removed the heavy seatbelts and SAS systems and added another booster or two. In fact, he was so strongly opinionated that he has refused to fly any further missions with SNG unless they have at most a 40% chance of survival.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.0.5.
