Caption: Space plane in Earth orbit. Space planes are a future type of spacecraft, designed to ascend to and descend from Earth orbit on wings, with rockets used in the final stages. This allows the spacecraft to be reused after each mission. Here, the space plane is climbing to low Earth orbit. In the distance is a small space station (upper centre).
