Congress Extends Shuttle Service to 2011

Congress has approved $2.5 billion to support Shuttle missions into 2011 if NASA needs the extra time to complete necessary missions. One possible such mission is the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer attachment to the ISS.

I don't know if more space shuttle missions are required, but I would like to see some of this money got towards the COTS program if the shuttle is not needed. I won't be holding my breath, though.
