Back to the Moon

Donald Stewart

November 26, 2012

After spending $100,000,000 to build a space station, let's use it. Use it as a platform to launch vehicles to the Moon & beyond. Use it to construct a lunar shuttle. It will enable us to get to the Moon much more cheaply that lifting off the Earth's surface. We've made the investment to get us out of Earth's gravity well, so let's take advantage of it. We don't have all day: let's move it. If we do this, we could use space instead of war to rebuild the American economy. Give young people a vision of the future that can excite them. One better than the nihilistic vision of endless war and violence that kids are fed today.

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.
