I was just thinking,what with the last 3 space shuttle missions left, how long are the ISS crew staying up there?Becuase there won`t be no more flights up there so how they gonna get down?And what are they actually doing?

cheers

Carl

The American shuttle missions are ending but there will still be flights by the Russians. I imagine NASA will pay the Russian space agency to take astronauts up before a new space exploration vehicle comes into service.

Hi,
Another possibility of getting to the ISS is by a rocket, Falcon 9, which will be having it's maiden flight (with a dummy load) from Canaveral Fri 4th at 16.00 BST.
All the best.
Dave

PS.
Edit. This should answer your question about the aims of the ISS.
