the moon What I find interesting is that with the rather recent discovery of water under the moons surface why hasn't the possibility of getting some important samples isn't considered a must. After all, think of all that could come from what it would do if we found a way to utilize the resource it could create, if we established artificial living environments, and more. And how far could we launch a vessel without having to contend with Earths atmosphere and gravity.The potential I can see is staggering. And yet they scrap the shuttle program. This is a seemingly backward move if you ask me. I thought when the discovery first happened just a couple of years ago we would be on our way back to the moon by now. What's going on with our interest for science at least?
