I said we, and I'm not American, meaning the international community as a whole. Smile

Seriously, I want to know but you are not going to tell so I have to ask NASA who are not going to tell me the truth, right?

So all bases are covered regardless of what NASA says, right?

Nice... Smile

And I think you're kidding but I meant Sir Richard Branson...

OMg, that's funny! No, I wasn't kidding. Branson, in the state of Missouri, is a huge tourist and entertainment town. I've been there many times. Mainly caters to "family style" entertainment. There's a lot of country music and comedy, and many of the more famous country singers there are older. Didn't make the connection with the "other" Branson, at all!
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

Haha, I know of Branson from the movies. That you really thought I was referring to the town, makes that hilarious. Smile

The biggest problem is water. Can't colonize without it.

IIRC there's water.

AFAIK it's the cost to move (*even a pound) of matter from the surface of the Earth into space that limits our travel plans.

Ouch! Very near the bone.
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

O2 can be extracted from water, as well as hydrogen (H2O)

I have told you. I got shot down like a bad plane. I have NO cred here. NASA KNOWS the truth. I only hear things... Smile

The moon is a spy satellite?
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Did they get there, no! or we would have found the answer to clean and safe energy.


Just checking- are you kidding or do you seriously believe that we never landed on the moon?

One of the problems with "us" colonizing the moon is that here on our home planet we can't even agree on who "we" are. I love the idea of "we", the human race, doing things, but we may have to give up our obsession with nationalism, race and arbitrary lines in the sand first.

We did it with the International Space Station. Smile

It would cost too much to complete the environmental impact studies.

Excellent point. 15 of us did. Smile

It would be interesting if we determined which of "us" were more responsible for environmental problems, make them build the colony, and populate it with the "us" that were least responsible for those problems.
