From paper's conclusion: "In many respects, space exploration represents what the 1960s popular culture television phenomenon of 'Star Trek' dubbed it, the 'final frontier.' The goal of a permanent presence in space could be and is routinely considered by advocates of exploration as major steps in opening that 'final frontier' but is a more apt characterization at this point 'space: the failed frontier?' Has the time for the space station both come and gone within a few short years or is it still critical to the human future in space?"
