    May 31st of 2010 will be the last space shuttle mission ever

    Final shuttle missions announced:

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/7495302.stm

    Remaining missions in 2008

    8 October - Atlantis: A mission to repair and upgrade the Hubble Space Telescope.

    10 November - Endeavour: ISS re-supply, and servicing of rotary joints that allow the big solar arrays to track the Sun.

    Missions in 2009

    12 February - Discovery: Final pair of solar arrays to be installed on the starboard end of the station's backbone.

    15 May - Endeavour: Delivery of third and final component of the Japanese Kibo Laboratory.

    30 July - Atlantis: Largely a logistics mission but it will include spacewalks to install equipment on Europe's Columbus lab.

    15 October - Discovery: The flight will take up two spare gyroscopes that are needed to maintain station stability.

    10 December - Endeavour: Delivery of the final connecting node, Node 3, together with the European-built Cupola window.

    Missions in 2010

    11 February - Atlantis: Another logistics mission to make sure the station is fully stocked with supplies.

    8 April - Discovery: The flight will see the installation of a Russian Mini Research Module to be attached at the rear of the ISS.

    31 May - Endeavour: The last flight. The 15-day mission will be the 35th orbiter flight to the station.
    So the ISS will be finished spring of 2010.

    I would LOVE to be there on the last shuttle mission to see the launch. I've never been to one.
