Despite a few mishaps with rockets headed for the International Space Station (eg. SpaceX, Orbital Sciences and the Russian space agency all failed to deliver
re-supply cargo ships), there have also been some interesting space-faring developments
in the last year
or so. Fortunately, none of the lost spacecraft were manned missions, and the ISS also has the Japanese HTV
as another backup cargo ship. And with SpaceX's awesome recovery with a successful launch, it looks like re-supply missions are getting back on track -- so the ISS will probably keep going until at least 2020 (and maybe a few years more? 2024? 2028?).
