Does anyone know how many Spaceshuttles have flown into space these last couple of years? I seem to remember quite a few taking off in quick
succession.... who were in these shuttles and did they all come back? Or have certain people gone into space to leave the rest of us here to deal with
all the mess?
Thanks! Seems to have been quite a few flights since 2000 but from 2005 there have been 13! And 3 since Nov 18th 2008..... i'm sure i was hearing
more than just 3 in this time..... seemed to be one going off every month.... must be seeing things!
Yes -- you must be seeing things. 13 since 2005 and 3 since August of 2008 sounds about right. There is usually 3 months between flights (sometimes
less, sometimes more).
There are people (including myself) who watch the space program fairly closely and would notice if they were launching shuttles monthly. The people
who live in that area of Florida would DEFINITELY notice.
