They should can those shuttle flights until they figure out how to get people past that radiation shield that surrounds the earth between us and the moon.  Then we can make a real moon landing and start thinking of colinization of other planets - the only real worthwhile thing left to do in space.  (BTW, the only thing Bush has said that I agee with is that he wants a manned Mars mission in our lifetimes.)

Speaking of VR smell, I think - no, I know - that you would enjoy a four book series by Tad Williams called "Otherland".
