    There were no possible economies of scale when only six such space vehicles were built between 1978 and 1988.

    The needed capability of the shuttles was far beyond that found in any other kind of air or spacecraft.

    Most of the parts are made from precious metals, and the instrument panels are encrusted with expensive jewels.
