1981 Motorcycle MPG Fuel Economy Guide
World Changing Event: April 12, 1981 - The Space Shuttle program: Space Shuttle Columbia launches on the STS-1 mission, returning to Earth on April 14. This is the first time a manned reusable spacecraft has returned from orbit. The Space Shuttle was the first operational orbital spacecraft designed for reuse. It carried different payloads to low Earth orbit, provided crew rotation for the International Space Station (ISS) and performed servicing missions. The orbiter could also recover satellites and other payloads from orbit and return them to Earth. Columbia carried The Canadarm, a mechanical arm capable of deploying, retrieving or assembling payloads weighing up to 293 tons (586,000 pounds) in space.
