The iconic Pathfinder Shuttle Stack stands as a testament to the 30-year program that moved humans from a space-launch people to a space-dwelling people. The space shuttle’s main engines, external fuel tank and solid rocket boosters—the heart that powered the shuttle fleet—were designed, manufactured, and built in Alabama.

The Space Transportation System (STS) includes two solid rocket boosters, genuine space shuttle main engine nozzles and a genuine external tank. The STS is flanked by a T-38, a twin-engine supersonic jet used in astronaut training, and the Shuttle Training Aircraft (STA), the only one of NASA’s four modified Gulfstream II aircraft on display anywhere in the world.
