4. Of the 106 Shuttle missions, how many of the missions were ended earlier than the originally scheduled date?

Answer: 5

The last was on April 8, 1997. Atlantis was brought back from orbit early due to a malfunction of the number two fuel cell.
5. Mission STS-80 lasted 17 Days, 15 Hours, 53 Minutes, 18 Seconds, which shuttle orbitor flew that mission?

Answer: Columbia

The average shuttle mission is ten days, but in 1992 the Space Shuttle Columbia was outfitted with Extended Duration Orbitor Hardware. It gave the orbitor the ability to stay for a longer period of time. The new hardware managed fuel, so the shuttle could stay that long in space. Since 1992, there have been 12 missions of of 13 days or longer. Of the twelve, Columbia has completed 11 of those missions. Endeavour has done the other.
