The ET (External Tank) is the largest element of the space shuttle, and when loaded, it is also the heaviest. It consists of three major components: the forward liquid oxygen (LOX) tank an unpressurized intertank that contains most of the electrical components the aft liquid hydrogen (LH2) tank; this is the largest part, but it is relatively light, due to hydrogen's very low density. Those 2 chemicals funnel out of the engine and when combined energy is released.

Rare photos capture the Flight Deck (cockpit) of the Space Shuttle Endeavour, fully powered for one of the final times. Just a few weeks later, at 9:58am EDT on May 11, Endeavour was powered down for the final time in history. It was the last of the three space shuttles to have power. Below, other views show the mid-deck, gutted of its lockers and storage areas, and three final photos show the white room entrance in the Orbiter Processing Facility, signed by thousands over the years.
