I'm not sure the space shuttle will ever be replaced per se. Whether you call it a space shuttle, a space ship, or something else, the premise is still the same - getting humans into outer space. What may change is design and functionality, much like the cars of today. Apparently Lockhead Martin is working on the next iteration of the space shuttle, called a Crew Exploration Vehicle (CEV) that emphasises more than ever the idea of crew safety.
