I realize that public support for NASA hinges in part on publicity, but this is just embarrassing. NASA is sending Luke Skywalker's original light saber prop into space. Check out the circus surrounding the announcement.
Do we need a clearer sign that sending humans into space is a waste of time and money?
I say ditch the manned space flight and stick with robotic missions that are cheaper, safer, and focus on real science, not hack publicity stunts.
