The Saturn/Apollo flights were made with a trajectory to both reduce the amount of fuel required by launching in a westerly direction from the equator, and at times that the path through the belt would be at its minimum potential for damage.

The ISS travels well below the Van Allen belt(s), and the Shuttle's engines were designed for heavy lifting rather than high altitude/geostationary orbits/planetary travel.

No CT, move along, nothing to see here

The best facial is a daily facial.

That's it then, Challenger, Endeavour, Atlantis and Discovery are grounded forever. Quite sad really.

Such a shame.

Also such a shame that the space programme didn't kick on after getting man on the moon. We should have been to Mars by now and would have been if the funding hadn't been cut back.

We really should be looking at ways of getting off the planet and living somewhere else, for when we inevitably destroy earth in one way or another.
