With Gene's death today [not unexpected in the space community], there
remain only six men who have walked on the moon -- Aldrin, Bean, Scott, Young, Duke, and Schmitt.
The youngest is 81. Are we going to slip back to a species where nobody living has ever walked on the moon?

Sorry to hear this and yes it does look like it Jim.

Have you read Andrew Smith's book about the subject - thought it was a very good one.

It's starting to look that way , we live in a risk averse society these days.

Aren't the Chinese planning to put one of their own on the moon in the near future? If not then yes, it will be a sad day when there isn't a person alive who had walked on the moon.

We are too focused on political 2 party ideological BS.

And not fulfilling our true destinies as adventurers.

It's time we refocus and get moving again.

"The universe is probably littered with the one-planet graves of cultures which made the sensible economic decision that there's no good reason to go into space--each discovered, studied, and remembered by the ones who made the irrational decision." -- Randall Munroe
