"what the drat is going on, why are they ending this?

Because Obama is a douche and ended the Constellation space program that would`ve replaced the shuttle."

Way to unnecessarily interject your opinion without actually answering the question, Crakr. *applauds* You are amazing at times.

Q: How will astronauts get to the space station?

A: NASA will continue to buys seats on Russian Soyuz capsules to ferry space station residents. The $56 million price per head will go up to $63 million, which is still cheaper per person than the space shuttle.

Q: Is there any other way to get into space?

A: Not from U.S. soil once the shuttles retire. NASA could eventually use the commercial rockets and capsules being developed by private companies. Two companies predict they could fly astronauts to the space station within three years. NASA is under orders to build a giant rocket to go beyond Earth orbit.
