I think all these NASA blokes and Gals have more time on the plate to know what to do with, and just make it up as they go along, and some of us still fall for it.
If they really thought that the Moon had heaps to offer, why are they not there doing research, to enhance the speculation, they are preaching today.
Now they want to venture further, and that is great, but it has been many years since 69.
They are just payed to much to woffel on about nothing.
At least The IIS members here, the visual people, the imaging people, would run rings around these high flyers.
Have a good day.
