Abstract:

Greg Klerlx argues that ever since the last human left the moon in 1972, the Space Age has been stuck in the wrong orbit, and NASA, the organization that once fueled the world's space-faring hopes, has been largely responsible for keeping it there. With the loss of the space shuttle Columbia, there has never been a more critical time for anyone interested in the future of space exploration to ask two questions: whatever happened to the Space Age? And how do we get it back?
