I can't believe I just watched the last launch of the space shuttle Atlantis.
The Ultimate Bottle Rocket

What do they have in mind next ?

They are still working but through other entities/countries. My Dad is working on a project with NASA right now. They put $250,000 down on getting equipment to the space station and ESA (European outfit) keeps holding them up. It was cool to see them talk to the guys on the station via SCTV.

I had a major fascination with space/astronauts/stars as a kid. It is sad to see our program dwindle so much. But when the money isn't there...

Today was definitely one to remember, a sad day indeed. I can't imagine being in the space program waiting for 2015 to come around to see the new "prototype" deep space/cargo hauler of the future may be. I'd be even more concerned knowing I have to ride a Russian rocket with those cowboys lol.....at 15mil a ticket:smiley_blackeye:
