        Space Shuttle Era: External Tank and Solid Rocket Boosters

        It takes an enormous amount of force to lift the space shuttle off the ground and into space. In this video from NASA, learn about the fuel that provides this lift, and the external fuel tank that is specially designed to store all this fuel. Also learn about the solid rocket boosters that work together with the external tank to provide the needed thrust to get the shuttle into orbit.

        This media asset is from "Space Shuttle Era: External Tank and Solid Rocket."
