It would seem that Michael (amoungst others) may have been one of those who
inspired NASA to do this, as NASA does indeed acknowledge. From the article
"The genesis of this, quite honestly, was when the expendables community
placed a few of these cameras on some of their vehicles. There was a pretty
positive public reaction to the gee-wiz value of the photography. It was
neat stuff to look at."
--Phil Engelauf, lead shuttle flight director for Atlantis' mission.
