Of course, people may have been smarter back then. Any case, NASA isn't letting technologies here on Earth pass it by, at least for it's terrestrial mission of getting information to the public.

Which brings us to the NASA App, first launched back in December, available at usa.gov and the NASA site.

It would be worth at least double the price of admission if only for the photos--more than 1,000 of spacecraft, space and more. For kids and others with a fascination with space, that means hours and years of wonder.

Then there's plenty of information about NASA's missions (it's a lot more than the National Aeronautics and SHUTTLE Administration), a schedule of launches, and lift-offs, too.

So space cadets, rejoice at the NASA App, the Government Video Website of the Week!
