Return to the Moon poll
40 years ago we went to the moon. Should we return?
I won't belabor the point but a trip to the Moon [or anywhere else...like Mars] at this time is just not a good idea. The United States' fiscal crisis cannot warrant such a venture, NASA has some serious economic issues, the methodology of getting there is outdated and risky, and the whole idea of pushing man into space is questionable. It is still a better idea to send satellites and probes. Common sense rules over grandeur of space travel--let the science fiction writers satisfy that need.
