Even Aerospace Industry Hit by Bad Economy (July 28, 2010)

Over 1300 space shuttle employees received notice this week that they would be laid off, as the shuttles are being retired later this year. For more news on this subject, click here.

I appreciate that civilian spacecraft like WhiteKnightTwo/SpaceShipTwo and Falcon 9/Dragon, can assist the Russian Soyez replenish food and water and air supplies. All three vessels can also transport crew to and from the ISS, but the Shuttle has done such a good job for so long that I will miss it.
