Well if the Chinese keep on going the way they are with the development of they're space programme, who know's? I can see the chinese putting man back on the moon within the next 10 years though.

It's probably do-able now to mine on the moon, or will be in the next few years. They've got the technology available now to extract HE-3, but doing it up on the moon is a different story, it takes a bit more than just putting a few mining rigs up there.

I can't understand why the western world is not pumping billions into this, as it's not our generation we've got to think about, it's the next and the one's after that. Fossil fuels are running out and using them is basically destroying our earth.


Wow, there's a Hollywood movie for you... Smile

We could break earth up into 49 bits and then we would have 50 moons to colonise.
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?


And what makes you think you did Bob? Seems strange no-one ever did it again don't you think?

Nope. People got bored with moon travel after six times. Congress, always more concerned with getting re-elected than with scientific progress, cut funding for NASA and forced it to cancel the last two missions. (I read somewhere that the astronauts were actually glad the missions got cut. They'd had some problems with some of the successful missions (On 11, they snapped off a switch from the control panel, luckily, not a vital switch.) They said they felt the missions were going on borrowed time and eventually something big (bigger than 13) was going to happen and someone was going to die up there.) I've looked through the information that "proves" we didn't go to the Moon (I own a copy of "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Moon") it's hokum!

I find it hard to believe that any rational person would actually believe that the moon landings never happened.

Well, there were some pretty rational reasons for faking it no? In the same ball park as claiming that someone had a bunch of WMD's isn't it?

No. Not in the same ballpark at all. (Although it did make for a nice sci-fi movie plot. But, then again, so did Day of the Triffids.)

But to follow your analogy to its logical conclusion. The fact that there were no WMDs in Iraq came to light rather quickly as the war progressed. Too many people were involved in the search and everything was being spilled to news organizations. Hundreds of thousands would have had to have been in on a conspiracy to prevent the truth from eventually coming out.

Same with the moon landings.

On the other hand, you might want to open it on a space station. Think of all the new ways you could mix drinks in zero gravity. Layering shots would be a whole new art when you're not as concerned about density.

Nice. I'll be repeating that one.
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
