    NASA is still looking into new shuttle designs and some are not as adventurous as I would like to see.
    Locheed Martin:
    CEV=Crew Exploration Vehicle


    There is also Project Constellation which ties in with the CEV for NASA

    The Mars Society is also interested in CEV and references Lockheed Martin

    Solar Voyager has lots of pictures that explore the CEV concepts for Mars

    Finally here is the site with a map of Worldwide Launch Sites


    I just realised that you can get the lat/long for the launch sites on that page and plug those coordinates into TerraFly or other flyby imagers and look at them. Nifty!

    In this day & age of reduced budgets and 'stick to what works' mentality I wouldn't at all be shocked to see NASA shuttles taking a backseat to private enterprises like SpaceShip One. And, personally, I think that's a good thing. :)
