First Flight of Columbia

The STS-1 space shuttle launch team celebrates a successful liftoff of Columbia from Launch Pad 39A a few seconds past 7 a.m. The orbital mission ended with an unpowered landing at Edwards Air Force Base in California. Known as a shuttle systems test flight, STS-1 sought to demonstrate safe launch into orbit and safe return of the orbiter and crew and verify the combined performance of the entire shuttle vehicle — orbiter, solid rocket boosters and external tank.
