Gary, 

"One of the many great things about NASA and its mission are the technologies that enhance life here, back on Earth."

Exactly. It makes sense that companies on Earth could use these technologies that have been or are being used in the ISS, and space missions already.

Re: NASA Innovation on Earth
One of the many great things about NASA and its mission are the technologies that enhance life here, back on Earth. This latest innovation will make those technologies available to terrestrial enterprise in a faster, cheaper, and more efficient manner. It will help all to see the value of space research, and, of course, many of the advances made here with the help of NASA's input will eventually be exploited by NASA itself. This is positive feedback at its very best.

Re: NASA Innovation on Earth
I can't wait until NASA starts reimbursing the taxpayers who funded its advances with the fees it's getting from this program. Oh, it's not giving anything back? Nevermind.

NASA Innovation on Earth
You really have to give the folks at NASA credit for their creative, and open-minded approach in working with the scientific community, space enthusiasts, and the commerical world to share what NASA keeps learning.
