Hmmm - the US has money for nothing if you follow the discussions in the news. But which country doesn't have debts nowadays? San Marino?
So i think the next kind of Space Shuttle will be paid be private investors.

dear friends,

surely yesterday at 5:57 EST an era did end at KSC in Florida with the successful landing of space shuttle ATLANTIS. :Bravo:

30 years did pass and 135 missions. It was great to watch these flights.

Unfortunately manned spaceflight on US spaceships is impossible for a long? time. :(

The thrill of a spaceships launch will be far in the future. :unknown:

kind regards

Uli in Germany
