Yeah. Very sad, I remember the first Space Shuttle launch in April 1981. It was awesome. What are the going to replace it with? Undecided

Thanks to Captain Sim we still have a SSO that we can fly! Wink

I have some friends who work for NASA and they said that it will be replaced by a rocket (like the ones used in the early days of space-travel) but it will be state of the art. It looks pretty cool. Here's a picture of what I think it is.

That looks really nice. BUT. Does that mean the Astronauts come back to Earth in a capsule and a Splashdown? Charles Duke of Apollo 16 called it a crashdown because the capsule hits the water so hard!

I thought hey would at least try to maintain some form of winged "shuttle" for the return trip. It would be a lot better IMO.

Beam me up Scotty! Would be the best way by far! Cheesy Grin Grin

The Saturn V was considered state of the art, too.  Wink Grin

It's sad to see the Shuttle go, I went down to Cape Canaveral last winter but it had already been retired.  Sad

Maybe once they have entered the atmosphere and dropped to 130,000 feet, they will have to jump out of the capsule and parachute back to earth without it! Grin Grin
