The space shuttle looked like am airplane too. Any spaceship that wish to fly in the atmosphere needs wings until anti-gravity tech is discovered. It look silly because people are used to more futuristic spaceship look, but in term of tech level it's not.

Actually, this is why older space ships were imagined as "flying saucers", that design can fly in the atmosphere, because the "ring" act like a wing. See the Avrocar.

Basically, their choice was space capable airship or flying saucer!
