NASA is badass. Let's admit it. Who else would be so forward thinking as to team with m2mi to build small satellites to make internet bandwidth available in space? This way, the Venusian social networking site we've all wanted to hook up with will be ready to receive us before too long.
Also, if you end up going to space, and you need to buy that collector's Star Wars Darth Vader action figure replica helmet from eBay, you don't have to ask the astronauts to land the space shuttle special for you. You can just buy it from space. Now, the shipping, we're not sure how that will work, but NASA can't solve all your problems, you know.
