Description

A space shuttle has 12 windows including the six that look forward from the flight deck. Each contains three panes of glass made of aluminum silicate and fused silica, two materials of extreme strength and heat resistance. They are protected inside and out at all times, uncovered only just before launch and recovered soon after returning.
