I was doing research on some of the NASA missions and realized that usually oxygen and hdrogen make water or hydrogen peroxide. Water being H2O does not burn and it is a simplier molecule so it seems it would probably combine to form water. Hydrogen peroxide which is H2O2 and can be used as an oxidizer and is probably not formed as often because the molecule is a little more complex. So why does it burn for the shuttle if it is most likely to form water?
