    Why do you think we never went back to the moon?

    To land on the moon was the greatest feat to be accomplished by a leader world nation. We possibly got there but all of a sudden we never went back. Why?

    I am uniquely qualified to answer. Dr. Shoemaker explained it to me as I sat nervously waiting to take his daughter to a dance. There is nothing there. I come from Flagstaff where the Astronauts trained - Dr. Shoemaker is pre-eminent in meteors and the environment on the moon. Life as we know it is not what we see. We know micro and macro now. We have a grasp of string theory and quantum physics and computers that can run 1 billion options in an hour. We do not need to be any place to get that place. It is now like our minds can imagine and our computations can prove it true or not.
    I think it will be fun to have a colony on the moon -- private enterprise of course. Google folks will be walking there within two years. Science will benefit greatly but we can already run that condition here. Neil sat at my dinner table as did others that did not go. There is no governmental reason to be there.

    Let me aside --- No way was that the greatest feat of man. Stopping Hitler and ridding the planet of the plagues are far greater feats of man. Space is not the "final" frontier. Man's heart and feeling are the final frontier.

    I think it was a "been there done that" scenario.  There just wasn't much else to do there.  We tested soil, checked out what could be checked out. Time to move further out.

    Kind of a waste of time and money in the first place. No need to to put lives at risk and waste money on such useless information.

    Future moon landings were going to build a solar energy station on the moon that would have provided 75% of the energy needs of planet earth and pay for itself in 25 years.  Read "From the Earth to the Moon" that Tom Hanks made an HBO series from and you'll have a better idea of what we might have done if we hadn't just stopped because the political winds changed direction in America in the 1970s and 1980s.

    Looking up at the sky, it seems so close and within easy reach. Man has landed there 6 times, and then never again. Why? read more
