 Turned out it was just doing a flyby before they put it in the museum.

Turned out it was just doing a flyby before they put it in the museum.

more weight = more fuel needed. it may be able to carry the shuttle, but it will use alot of fuel and wont stay airbourne for long
#55 to #1 - anon (04/24/2013) [-]
The shuttle also creates it's own lift from the wings.

Regardless of the stupidity of this post. Overweight costs are still ********

747s used to carry space shuttles are specially designed to carry space shuttles

In reading through the comments thus far, I'd like to add something others haven't noticed.

The space shuttle....wait for it,


It's wings allow it to produce enough lift to allow it to glide through the atmosphere upon reentry, so one would assume it has enough lift to help the aircraft underneath it fly. I may not be an aerospace engineer, but for cruising, it wouldn't be burning that much more fuel to make a difference. My wager would be it burns more fuel at takeoff and landing.

Of course, if someone's more educated on this subject, please set me straight.
#21 to #20 - akimbobears (04/23/2013) [-]
Given how much it weighs. i doubt the added lift would do anything. If adding extra wings helped, planes would just have a bunch of wings.
User avatar #22 to #21 - captfuckhead ONLINE (04/23/2013) [-]
Bear in mind, for awhile, they did.
#24 to #22 - anon (04/23/2013) [-]
but now they dont...i wonder why? take into consideration the weight of a spacecraft versus a passangers bags, so yes there is a difference....the top wings dont help much especially taking into consideration that the plane underneath wasn't necesarily built to fly with cargo on top, meaning the space shuttles and the planes wings were built and made for being used on a single plane.

So we could have ******** overweight baggage fees
User avatar #33 to #20 - Gorty (04/24/2013) [-]
Now, I may be wrong or not, I don't exactly know I'm just putting this out there. The wings on the shuttle are for keeping it going straight, and to keep it from veering off path. If the shuttles wings did have lift, I feel as if it would land itself. Like I said I may be wrong, this is jut a guess.
#34 to #20 - jonnyvegas (04/24/2013) [-]
THe camber of a wing does produce lift, but in the case of the shuttle, it's just about enough to allow it to maneuver, and maintain a slightly decent glide slope. I think I read around 3:1 meaning it travels 3 feet horizontally for every 1 foot vertically it falls where as a commercial aircraft is several times higher than that, the wings are much more efficient. Shuttles have been described as flying bricks...

thank you for clarifying, good sir.

I don't really care about the fee.

But you don't pay to travel based on how much you weigh.

im sorry but that gif is only usable in very specific situations

if you make a request and you get a response that fits within the parameters of said request yet is cleary a silly exageration and not what you are seeking... that is what it is made for.

Before people start saying y you so butthurt, Im not...I just know that when used properly this is one of the funniest reaction images there is...I dont wish to see it abused

Thumb me down or whatever...At least I know I received them defending the truth

Well, the inside is entirely stripped of passengers and seats, which saves a lot of weight. Pic related, what the inside would probably look like.
User avatar #13 - exorbis ONLINE (04/23/2013) [-]
It's about the total weight to fuel ratio, If you bring more weight than expected, they have to calculate the equation all over again and thus load more fuel.

it's mainly about the baggage handlers, a lot of them had been getting injuries from lifting huge bags.

At Ft.Campbell I was lucky enough to actually see this land and take a picture of it up close.

It was kinda cool I guess, same feeling you get at a museum i suppose.

This reminds me of something my sister told me once.
If an aeroplane is getting low on fuel in the middle of flight, another aeroplane will fly up and insert a tube into it's gas thingy, but it's very difficult to do. It's like... Plane porn.
User avatar #43 - Itsgoodenough (04/24/2013) [-]
Because space shuttles cant actually provide their own lift by themselves, that's why every one has just dropped out of the sky for no reason the second it entered the atmosphere.
User avatar #50 to #43 - mrblueftw (04/24/2013) [-]
165,000 pounds not including equipment and astronauts
2 suitcases, about 30 pounds each
which means a 747 would have to hold 5500 people with 1 suitcase each to weight the same amount.
User avatar #51 to #50 - Itsgoodenough (04/24/2013) [-]
Then subtract the amount of lift provided by the Space shuttle...
#57 to #51 - mrblueftw (04/24/2013) [-]
I only did the first part. i didnt really go past that, including that the 747 is empty and stuff. I tried.
