NASA is certainly changing tack with the new stuff they are trying out. The shuttle and the international space station are all but out and now NASA is focusing on Deep Space Water Landings. To read and see video go to

That was a Transporter, not a tractor beam... Guess we gotta start somewhere though.

re: NASA Aims To Build Tractor Beam
A tractor beam certainly sounds like a lofty goal, if only a bit more like science-fiction than science fact. One wonders if their energies couldn't be better focused on practical solutions, solving problems closer to home. Maybe NASA researchers could be using their laser-sharp minds to come up with answers to world hunger, perhaps solving challenging green energy problems, or tackling sustainability challenges that could be applied both here on earth and in space?
