The Last Space Shuttle


As another era in the US space program comes to an end, I 'm reminded of Tom Wolf's great book, The Right Stuff.  I suppose we are slowly coming to the realization that there is only so far man can go in space and the future will be robotics.  In the meantime, a cash-strapped NASA relies more and more on joint missions with Russia, and I imagine China in the near future.  Will we see an international space program in the decades ahead?
