    It was a political thing when we went to the moon ... John Kennedy vs. Kruschev and the soviet union; both stating that they'd be on the moon first. Space is not a political playing card anymore and we're seeing monies from the private sector more and more. Space exploration is a cool thing ... space exploration by the military may not be though which makes it something of a catch 22.

    there's already been a thread on this.

    and overall, i believe it was either 6 or 12 trips we've made to the moon.

    Well, going to the moon, with a manned shuttle, costs billions of dollars/pounds etc.

    Why go back anyway? Been there; done that; got the t-shirt. Mars is next on the list ;-)

    Lol.

    LOL! You should have done some reading before posting. You would have found out that we have been there many times, since, although the last time was in the 70's I think.

    Now my curiosity is in overdrive. Obviously I knew we'd been a number of times having been glued to the TV like everyone else in those years but I didn't think it went into the seventies.

    aye, that it did. there's no scientific knowledge left to gain from going to the moon, so the government will not sponsor a scientific expedition there.

    the only reason left to go to the moon would be for tourism in the private sector. the technology for that is still years off, though.
