In early July 2011, I was licking my wounds after seeing the final space shuttle launch in Titusville, FL, and quite frankly I was getting rather depressed over the decline of manned space travel in the U.S. As a longtime space nerd, I was being told by people I worked with at my day job that NASA “was dead,” among other rather positive-sounding platitudes.
