In that time, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration has made amazing advances in technology and accomplished impressive feats in the exploration of the heavens, greatly enhancing our understanding of our world, of the solar system and of the greater universe beyond. But in the area of human spaceflight their early success has fallen far short of where we could, and should, be now four decades on from "One great leap".
