Count down...38 years and still counting for something to come from the billions spent on Zero-G R&D and ISS since Gene Cernan stepped off the moon. The ROI from Zero-G is laughable. I stopped drinking the ISS zero-G kool-aid years ago. So go peddel it somewhere else! The biggest return from Nano-rocks already happened and that is the inspiration it generated from the students. Hopefully congress can pull NASA out of Griffin/Augustine/Obama death spiral it is currently in. Best way to that would be to do something truly inspirational, something that could actually provide those students with a career someday. "Shoot the Moon"! kick off the LEO iSS shackles and move outward!
