    Moon may harbor alien minerals
    May 28, 2013 – Minerals found in craters on the moon may be remnants of asteroids that slammed into it and not, as long believed, the satellite’s innards exposed by such impacts, a study said Sunday.

    So you want this country to become a third world shit hole? Sooner or later we must get back to what made us the super power.

    Pushing the boundaries and being great. Something you don't believe in.

    If we keep spending money we don't have that's exactly what we'll be.

    Having vision and the ability to push innovation made us the super power. You extreme conservatives are every bit as fucking bad for this country as the extreme left.

    Says the idiots that want to build other countries infrastructure.

    First off we need to start paying off the 17 trillion that we owe.
    Secondly,you realize that meteorites hit the moon and they do not burn up like they do here on Earth.
    That great , have a bunch of people on a moon base, so that they can get killed by meteorites.
    This just happened on March of this year.

    Having vision and pushing for innovation doesn't equal going to space. Extreme conservative ? :lol:

    Tell that to the people that crossed the Atlantic to build this country. Space is 99.9999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999% of everything and it's a good idea to take advantage of it. You people don't think about the resources that will help us pay for that 17 trillion in debt.
