Rocket ship coloring pages to print

A space vehicle or spaceship is a rocket-powered vehicle used to transport robotic spacecraft or people between the Earth’s surface and outer space. The earliest space vehicles were expendable launch systems, consisting of two parts: a single or multistage rocket launch vehicle, which carried a spacecraft payload (satellite or crew-bearing space capsule) which were relatively small portions of the total vehicle size and mass. An early exception to this, the United States Space Shuttle space vehicle, which flew from 1981 to 2011, consisted of a reusable orbiter spaceplane carrying crew and payload, supported by an expendable external propellant tank and two reusable solid-fuel booster rockets.
