Far Side of the Moon Exploration

Far Side of the Moon Exploration

I would like to see exploration on the far side of the moon and also at the lunar poles where there is water. It has been a long time since we have sent humans to the moon. It is close and does not cost as much as other missions. Plus we can set up telescopes that have the noise blocked from earth. They could pick up new planets around the stars. We could also send a rover first which would cost less than the Mars rovers.

Planetary Defense

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.
