As long as it is repaired properly, a space shuttle can make trips to and from space forever. They were built for just that purpose. However, they will not do this because NASA is retiring the space shuttles this year (2010).
The space shuttle Columbia completed 27 successful space flights, not including its final flight whereupon it was destroyed in the Earth's atmosphere. It was the only shuttle apart from the Challenger never to dock with the Mir Space Station or the International Space Station.
They planned that each shuttle could make 100 flights.
It takes five years for a space shuttle to be built for a mission. It can cost an estimated amount of $2 billion.
None. We have not had a manned mission to Mercury yet. The space shuttle would be unable to make that type of trip.
