Two Space Shuttles were lost in flight: Challenger (STS-51L) and Columbia (STS-107).

Space Shuttle Columbia was the world's first reusable spacecraft. It could take up to 8 astronauts into orbit to conduct experiments and launch + repair satellites. Four more space-rated orbiters were built: Challenger, Discovery, Atlantis, and Endeavour. On April 12, 1981, astronauts John Young and Bob Crippen launched Space Shuttle Columbia from Kennedy Space Center, Launch Complex 39A. The mission goal was a safe ascend to orbit and a safe return to Earth for the orbiter and the crew. The Shuttle landed on April 14 at Edwards Airforce Base in California.
