OK, is NASA going to the moon in 5-7 years and establishing a base 15-19 out:

So patently absurd given the current fiscal and monetary insanity and economic kabuki it stuns one speechless.

Weigh in on NASA's return to the moon idea

Nice, about time, where ya been, yadda yadda, yadda...

Doubt I will ever see it.  Too many chickens coming home to roost...this effort even if initiated will be aborted immediately in a crisis.

Sad, what could have been started a couple decades ago could be a reality by now...

Oh well.

I voted -- Patently absurd.  TPTB can't even get a damn bridge to stay up these days.

I'd say NASA won't go back to the moon unless the rocket is designed to look like a camel.....or a goat.
I'm not always engulfed in scandals, but when I am, I make sure I blame others.

NASA can't even launch a rocket, anymore.  What's the point of them fantasizing?
