I'm assuming you are referring to the space shuttle. There are lots of different kinds of information that could be included regarding different aspects of the development and use of the shuttle; these are some possibilities.

One of your topics could deal with the designing and building of the reusable space shuttle orbiter vehicle itself and the system of solid rocket boosters and external fuel tank used to propel it into orbit. The history of that process involved solving many challenges that had not been dealt with prior to the development of the shuttle. You might devote another space to the new systems created for the shuttle, such as the technology needed for the computerized flight control system. Another space could deal with upgrades and updating of equipment that happened during the lifetime of the shuttle program.

You will need to devote several spaces to the work of the shuttle. One topic could examine the different configurations of the payload area and how they have allowed the shuttle to accomplish many different types of missions. Other spaces could examine the major types of work accomplished through use of the shuttle - the building and supplying of the International Space Station, the scientific experiments that have been conducted under weightless conditions, the studies of weather systems on Earth that have been supported by data collected from photographs taken from the shuttle, the medical data collected from the astronauts' experiences and experiments.

If you still have space, you could use one space to record the names, nationalities and responsibilities of the international astronauts who have flown on the shuttle. There should be no problem filling your storyboard.
