# What is approximately critical Q for the space shuttle? [closed]

Everything is in the title, I wonder what was approximately the critical dynamic pressure the space shuttle (RIP) could handle, as I am trying to create a simple space flight simulator. I don't need a very precise value, there will only be futuristic space ships but I don't want to be too far from reality.

Hmm, this is more of an engineering question, and thus off topic. Please read the faq before posting a question here :) –  Manishearth Dec 28 '12 at 12:40
