Solid rocket boosters (SRB) or Solid Rocket Motors, SRM, are used to provide thrust in spacecraft launches from the launchpad up to burnout of the SRBs. Many launch vehicles include SRBs, including the Ariane 5, Atlas V (optional for extra thrust), and the NASA Space Shuttle. The NASA Space Shuttle used two Space Shuttle SRBs, which were the largest of their type in production service. The propellant for each solid rocket motor on the Space Shuttle weighed approximately 500 000 kg.
