No problem Joey.  I should have posted sooner.  I got a new monitor at work so I was watching most of the mission including the docking with the ISS, etc.  Definitely a link to keep as they do broadcast live from the ISS as well.

So correct me if I'm wrong, but there are only two more shuttle fights remaining, one for the Atlantis, and one for the Endeavour, bringing the total to 135 missions for the Shuttle Program.

What they have been saying all week is a max of 2 but a guarantee of 1 more.  I'm not sure what they will be replacing the shuttle with, perhaps to long awaited 787 LOL.

Since they are having lots of success, I would guess the other shuttles have less flights than the discovery so are probably good for more space travel, but I guess the $$$$ is a factor.

For sure the Soyuz is twice as 1/2 the price of 1 spaceshuttle launch, so even the Ariana (French) is not this expensive.....  We'll see, there are unmanned mini shuttles around.. afro
