Hi all...Trying to find out this for some time..but from all access media or internet that I can find all indicating that after the schedulled 2010-2012 retirement..The NASA Space Shuttle still do not have viable replacement in hand..and the International Space Stations will have to soldier on with Old SOYUZ to continue operated... Space Shuttle will gone in the next two - four years..BURAN projects will not and realistically can not be revived from the graves.. The Puttin new space 'TAXI' projects are still in the dark (right..??) The European and Japanese Shuttle programs were history right now (correct ???) The Chinese only can offer less than what the Old SOYUZ can offered... So What's Left..??? I know this is not an International Defence related Topics..Thus why I put it in this catagory..Hope it's all right with the Mod's.. Thanks in the advances for any info..
