    Yeah, my little brother (space expert and educating himself to be an engeineer at NASA) Says that in about 10 years the will HAVE to replace them, and as much as he supports NASA, he said that they are pushing the life and the limit of the shuttles. My thought is they are just waiting to be sued.

    I don't understand where all of the money goes that NASA receives for research and development when they keep repeating the same mistakes with the same materials. I would think by now they could've come up with better materials for the ships. Maybe they're not getting all of the funds the used to b/c of the war. I'm just glad everything went fine with the launch this time. I watched it on tv

    Actually I was reading the other day that with every successful launch that NASA has now, they're funding gets raised by thousands of dollars. I am very glad also that the past two shuttle launches (including Atlantis have been successful). Now we just have to await the return of Atlantis to make it two.

    Yes. And those astronauts have seen what's happened in the past, and are trying to learn also. They did an inspection of the ship, and didn't find anything too extensive. So, I beleive they're going to return home safely.
