The Moon is the next big step in exploration. I had hoped that we’d have a permanent moon base by now. I believed as a child watching the moon landing in 1969 that we might even get to Mars by the year 2000. Hurry up guys I’m running out of time! The ‘powers that be’ need a kick in the pants to get moving. Maybe if idiots would stop trying to kill each other we could get some real worthwhile work done! The first company or country to get boots on the ground will be the first to profit from doing so.
