I would agree, however the shuttle program is not officially over until Endeavour and Atlantis complete their museum conversions and they make their ways to their final destinations. (Endeavour to L.A. and Atlantis to the museum at the Kennedy Space Center.

As Paul the Apostle said - "that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die…" (1 Corinthians 15:36)
I am sure we'll see some new spaceships, Orion or Dream Chaser, or passenger version of european ATV, or PPTS "Rus", or something else.
