‘Spaceship called Enterprise’: The first space shuttle to fly was dubbed Enterprise, this was only after the American public, and in particular science fiction fans, pressured NASA to name it after a popular TV show’s spacecraft. Unfortunately for “Trekkies” everywhere, the Enterprise was merely an atmospheric testing device, never actually destined for orbit. However the Space Transport System, STS for short, or more commonly known as a space shuttle, was to be a great leap forward in space transportation.
