The ET (External Tank) is the largest element of the space shuttle, and when loaded, it is also the heaviest. It consists of three major components: the forward liquid oxygen (LOX) tank an unpressurized intertank that contains most of the electrical components the aft liquid hydrogen (LH2) tank; this is the largest part, but it is relatively light, due to hydrogen's very low density. Those 2 chemicals funnel out of the engine and when combined energy is released.
