Back to the Moon
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.

Funding is critical. The more we have, the more effective we can be, translating into more missions, more science, and more exploration.
