With the retirement of the Space Shuttle fleet, NASA is looking to the private sector to provide the rockets and ships necessary to keep the International Space Station going. If things go as planned, the first privately owned space capsule will dock at the space station in November.
To say that NASA is excited would be the understatement of the decade. Aerospace giant Boeing has announced that it will build its seven-seat crew capsule to fit the super reliable Atlas V rocket -- in the hope of carrying astronauts to the International Space Station by the end of 2015.
There was stark symbolism in the night time landing of the space shuttle Atlantis early today in Florida. As Atlantis came down in the darkness, ending 30 years of shuttle missions, the entire American space program also went into the dark. No one can say for sure when the sun will rise on it again.
The Space Shuttle Endeavour and its crew of six has undocked from the International Space Station and is coming home, to close out NASA's next-to-last shuttle flight. They paused just long enough to do a victory lap and test equipment for a future interplanetary ship.
