      I hope so! There are still people up on the International Space Station and they need to come down. Rockets are still being sent up to put things like satelites into orbit. It was the reusable shuttles that all got decomissioned. They were too old to keep being reused, and too expensive to build more of.

      When you say ‘we’ do you mean the human race? If so most certainly yes – many are launched each year.
