Accessories for a Retiring Shuttle Fleet

NASA Set Approves New Unpressurized Logistics Carrier for Space Shuttle Fleet, SpaceRef

Editor's note: The enclosed CR pitch was presented for Full/Final implementation on 12 October 2005 at JSC. In so doing, NASA approved development of 5 new unpressurized payload carriers for the Space Shuttle fleet to be develoepd at GSFC at a total cost of $120 million. What I still don't understand is why this new system is needed - one which won't enter service until 2007 - only to become useless when the shuttle fleet stops flying in 2010. Given the ever shrinking number of remaining shuttle flights, will all of these payload carriers ever even fly?
