The vision of the shuttle launches that we have all come to know and love is nowcomplete.  Just this past week, the final shuttle launch ever took off for the International Space Station with a crew of just four astronauts – the final four in the shuttle program.  This program has changed the way we view and learn about space and astronomy.  So what will NASA come up with next?  And what is next for the space program?

Here is a video compiled by CNN of 135 launches in 135 seconds, as a tribute to the shuttle program.
