    When it comes to space exploration, there is only one Star City. ;)

    Remember, with the NASA shuttle being retired future flights will be courtesy of Russia's Russian Federal Space Agency.

    Or until NASA's Commercial Orbital Transportation Services program is fully operational. Once that'a up-and-running, NASA can then focus on deep-space efforts while SpaceX & other commercial efforts take the brunt of the LEO work.
