Back to the Moon
December 5, 2012
I would like to see observatories and manned support centers established on the Moon (both light side and dark sides). The observatories could be used to monitor Earth, the sun, and deep space. The support centers could also be used as bases to explore the polar creaters for ice for mining water and converting to oxygen and hydrogen. In addition, I think a plan needs to be established to manage luner and space junk whch could be marketed on E-Bay for $$$.
An asteroid or comet headed for Earth is the only large-scale natural disaster we can prevent. Working together to fund our Shoemaker NEO Grants for astronomers, we can help save the world.
