    Hey, what about a GO USA?
    We do still have a space agency and what could be a more critical mission for any space agency than Muslim outreach?

    China returning humankind to the moon is exciting. I look forward to their success in this endeavor.

    We gave it up and didn't develop the resources as any intelligent nation would of. Now countries like China and Russia are going to take that next step. Who cares if we had a photo op 43 years ago. LOL.:eusa_hand:


    Knowing China they will be mining it within 15 years. Once that occurs we will be number two within a few years.

    I always believed that it was a mistake to give up on the moon. Now, we will just have to watch another nation see how far the gamble will go.

    Hmmm. I wonder. Telemarketers on the moon. I wonder what that would pay? *winks*
