I thought this was the last flight for Atlantis, but that there were a few more flights for one of the other shuttles? :scratch:

^ Yep. Their are two more flights, with Atlantis serving as standby. So, I hope this is the last flight of the Atlantis.

I grew up with the shuttle program. :(

Man, this is going to be the end of an era. :/ Check me if I'm wrong, but they made the decision to scrap the Shuttle expecting to have a replacement ready, which as of yet has not materialized?

Nope, the plan is to rely on Russia to get our astronauts into orbit for the next two years. Thanks, Bush. :noway:

It is retarded that we do not yet have the next generation of manned technology. Once we were pioneers, now we are not much further - possibly no further, than we were decades ago.
