    Space policy directive 1

    In what may be the only good thing he ever does in his presidency Donald Trump has once again set American sights on the moon.
    Trump has commanded NASA to embark on a period of technological and scientific innovation.... the likes of which will once again put human boots on the moon...
    but this time.. the dream is not just to plant the American flag on the moon.. not just to bring back a couple of rock samples... this will be a stepping stone to Mars..... and possibly beyond.

    ALSO part of this astronomical master plan the DSG...... the Deep Space Gateway this is a station that would be in lunar orbit. The Gateway would be the transfer point to Mars and other distant destinations in the solar system.

    sadly no timescale has been put on this but hopefully it's within the next ten years or so. and hopefully a martian landing can be achieved by 2040 at the latest. i'll be 55 then. WE'RE GOING BACK TO THE MOON FOLKS.


    THE HUMAN ADVENTURE IS JUST BEGINNING!!

    Never argue space corps directives with an android!

    Rimmer:
    May I remind you of Space Corps Directive 34124?

    That would be nice... The technology existed to get to the moon like 50 years ago, we should be building moon bases by now, just to have an easier launch pad to Mars.

    Elon Musk will be leaving the solar system by the time NASA gets around to getting to Mars.

    I have to say I love people like elon musk and Richard branson. yeah many call them crackpots but hey if you don't aim for the stars you'll never get anywhere.

    in the 1800s when the likes of jules verne were writing whimsical stories abut landing on the moon many people thought it was outlandish and far fetched ... but it happened. human ingenuity often finds a way. hopefully it will again.

    Elon Musk, unlike most liberals, finds practical ways to use green energy and makes it work.
