Fancy the poor woman losing the tool bag trying to clean all the grease off... just like in the Impostors. Where's TB3 when you want to save a spanner.

Actually, I seem to recall that TB3 DIDN'T pick up the spanner...

There has been talk of at least one mission and possibly two added to the current shuttle manifest (one to fly a magnetic spectrometer payload to the ISS, it was built and sits in a hangar, but NASA isn't manifested to fly it). And the fleet may not retire until 2012 (with only 2 flights in 2011 and maybe a pair in 2012) as the gap between shuttle ending and Orion beginning is stretching out a bit due to the meager funds congress is sending NASA's way. So 2010 may not be the last year afterall. Apparently the incoming US presidential administration is at least open to this.

That's good news.

Bad for me, though as that would mean I'd have to continue working on the ISS model for another couple of years ! I'd just like to get it finished!
