A fine man.
It may be the next person to walk on the moon will be Chinese. They should be able to pay for the trip using the interest on the money we have borrowed from them. That’s about the only way the US is likely to be involved in manned space flight in the future.
Well, at least we will have helped in some small way.
There’s little reason to go back to the moon. We landed on the moon SIX times, nearly seven.
We planted flags, dropped probes, took rocks back, put a laser reflector down, took tons of photos, drove an automobile on the surface, mapped the thing multiple times.
We did a lot of science in a short time, a moon base would end up like Mt. Everest, cluttered with junk left behind by people visiting and leaving their garbage behind.
