The time has come to go back to the moon. Not just a visit but a permanent presense with miniture biosphere and necessary scientific equipment to further study our universe.

I cannot believe I watched man step on the moon
34 years ago and that after a few brief missions, we never returned. This is pathetic.

Of course, future missions should be multi-nation efforts.

Imagine, our nearest neighbor is only 250,000 miles away and we were last there a third of a century ago.

We have to return and get this show back on the road. Then maybe Mars will seem more realistic.
And who knows maybe Pluto.......and then of course
Alpha Centauri. Then we shall be truly be on the road to exploring our universe.

Let's roll!
