It is obvious that the Space Shuttle needs replacement.

Its obvious the Shuttle needed replacement about 10 years ago. The shuttle is made up of largely mid 1970's technology, that'd be like the Air Force flying a B-17 bomber in the 1980's. Sadly it seems there will be no real replacement as again scientific exploration will fall prey to short sighted political leadership.
