Even though US Space Shuttle Atlantis launched for the final time on July 8, 2011; NASA is still open for business. The launch was superb, despite lightning strikes and weather warnings and the video replays will probably become a DVD for collectors and history classes.

NASA administration and staff are excited by the future.

The US Space Shuttle Mission ended 30 years of work with the next phase of Lunar Exploration, the Constellation Program, cancelled by the 2008 – 2012 White House. No Matter – NASA became the Commercial Space Flight Mission at Cape Canaveral in partnership with Johnson Space Center and the private sector.

Privatized Space Flight had been suggested by President Barack Obama (2008 – 2012) as an option for Mission to Mars and NASA took the idea farther in order to provide America with their own transportation to the International Space Station rather than or rely completely on Russian colleagues and possibly overwork those vehicles.
