The Space Shuttle

I know it’s hard sometimes for us to feel good about ourselves. I mean there are models in the magazine who look as if they have never eaten a cheeseburger in their lives, and there’s me who looks like I eat twelve a day. So I am comforted daily as I run into things in the world that weigh more than me (and more than you too.) Here’s my first entry:

OBJECT: The Space Shuttle (Endeavor)

# Empty weight: 172,000 lb (78,000 kg)[14]
# Gross liftoff weight: 240,000 lb (110,000 kg)
