Astronaughts currently in space were repairing equipment last week as if was an oil change. Being in space more and more ordinary the way ships once were a radical spectacle and then became more or less typical.
The business of ships became the business of acquiring wealth and colonization and removing the unwanted. The future for space craft is capturing minerals from other planets, colonizing other worlds and putting our own garbage out of sight.
Bet that is what is in store for the 22cnd century while the environment on earth bubbles hotter and hotter before ultimately getting colder and colder, for eternity. But then again Superman might realize he is seriously needed and swoop down solving things once and for all.
