The Space Transportation System ended up costing $1.5 billion for each mission. It was a technical marvel and a miserable failure. In the long run the STS was the death of manned space flight for America. It cost too much, delivered too little, and was a dead end. Too much was asked by too many, and too many bad compromises had to be made to deliver a practical system.
