Under a new space-based tracking system, no plane would ever have to be off the grid, thanks in part to a reconfigurable radio developed for NASA. NASA’s powerful radio communications network allows us to receive data such as pictures of cryovolcanoes on Pluto — or tweets from astronauts aboard the International Space Station. But to …

Last week, I wrote about the practicality of the International Space  Station (ISS) with regards to its financial cost. I concluded that not  enough useful science is being done to justify the immense costs involved,  and that the role of the ISS appears to be its function as a bench-warmer  leading up to NASA's forthcoming Orion deep space capsule.   But, in addition to the financial reasons, the presence of human beings on  the ISS exacerbates its shortfalls as an orbital laboratory.
