Why do we go to space? In the beginning of our space program, the answer had a lot to do with war and paranoia. But with the dawn of the space shuttle, that all changed. Where do we go from here?
Special thanks to the National Air and Space Museum’s Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center for letting us hang out with the shuttle Discovery.

Galileo would have made a great astronaut.
