    Sad indeed. Well done Challenger, Endeavour, Discovery and Atlantis. Well done to the crew and control. So long, and thanks for all the fish.

    Well, they are working on a heavy-lifting rocket as a (hopefully temporary) replacement, so it’s not like we’ll have to rely on the Russians forever.

    But we should have had a replacement by now. It also sucks that the James Webb Space Telescope appears to have been cancelled.

    The heavy lift, is derived from the current shuttle program, more of the same, no innovation or real progress.
    As for the heavy life, Heavy lift for what? There is no plan to utilize it outside maybe 2 3 launches a year if that!.
