The available information on observations of neutral and ionic species and plasma properties around Space Shuttle has been reviewed. Possible Shuttle environment electronion generation mechanisms have been evaluated. In particular, ion observations have been successfully interpreted within the framework of a kinetic analysis which incorporates Shuttle cloudambient interactions, flow, and electromagnetic effects.
