DailyDirt: The Space Shuttle Era Ends Soon...
from the urls-we-dig-up dept
The last space shuttle mission will take place pretty soon, and after that mission, the shuttles are all destined to be stored in museums (and not sent to destroy asteroids headed for Earth). Here are a few more programs for continuing to explore space.
- Here's a brief video tribute to the space shuttle program. Disposable space vehicles, FTW? [url]
- Space enthusiasts seem to be looking forward to more deep-space missions now. Settlement missions sound like exciting programs.. for our great-grandkids. [url]
- The European Space Agency is scheduled to have a re-usable autonomous spacecraft in 2013. Robots want to return to Earth, too. [url]
- China has plans for its own space station set for 2020. It'll be a bit smaller than Mir or the ISS, but it's also supposed to be compatible with ISS modules in case other countries ever want to dock with it. [url]
