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
mentioned above:

"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.
