yeah, its a pity. the problem is that, technically, the only reasons for the space shuttle are hubble and the ISS. otherwise, its useless. theres a
theory saying that hubble was made only so the shuttle wud be justified, but thats up there with the xerox scam.
bascially, if money is gonna be used to get to moon, mars, and for insane amounts of research, the shuttle will be tossed, cuz its pointless and
obsolete (the most complex machine in the world is obsolete. great), and that means hubble has to go. its jsut not worth the costs to keep it
activated. spitzer is goin great tho, that rose
