The Moon is lonely!

Thomas Edmonds

May 9, 2016

What I would love to see next in space exploration is Man's return and eventual colonization of the Moon. This, I believe, would accomplish several goals. But the chief would be to take our manned space program out of low Earth orbit and move it outward again. Nothing is more insperational than watching our astronauts blasting off from a launch pad to land on another celestial body. The goal is to wake the public up, to illustrate the importance of space exploration. I believe this would accomplish that goal in spectacular fashion and prepare us for future manned missions further into space.
