Adventure is space! I love it! These astronauts are some cool customers. They should have rock-star status. Yeah they should. But how many Americans knows the name of 1 of the astronauts on the space shuttle. And how many people from the countries involved in the space station know the name of 1 person thats been on it. I'd wager it's very few. Hopefully one day pioneers like these will get the credit they deserve.
