"Today most of us don't give much thought to the space shuttle - viewing it as just one of many multibillion-dollar government expenditures offering unknown benefits to the taxpayers. Yet not too long ago the space shuttle was widely considered one of NASA's most remarkable advances, rivaling in popularity other Space Age innovations like the zero gravity toilet and Tang."

Editor's note: If NASA could deal with the perceptions in this article alone, it could shift - and perhaps disipate - a lot of public malaise about space exploration. This guy is (I'll bet, deep inside) itching to be wowed again.
