Hello, ATS. I got some pretty cool news for ya'. I did a thread some months ago about the planned Deep Space Gateway, a new planned base to be built in orbit near the Moon. Now, here's an updated article which states the name now as the 'Lunar Orbital Platform-Gateway;" a base where Astronauts will be able to live and travel to and from the Moon's surface via a lander.

www.abovetopsecret.com...



The renewed push toward our lunar neighbor coincides with President Donald Trump's December 2017 directive pushing NASA to send astronauts back to the moon, which hasn't seen a manned American mission since 1972's Apollo 17. This was a shift from the Obama administration's focus on sending people to Mars. The space agency's Gateway "will support exploration on and near the Moon, and beyond, including Mars," it says. NASA is working with companies like Moon Express on plans to fly robotic landers carrying scientific instruments to the moon, as early as 2019. The planned NASA space station wouldn't be able to send astronauts to the moon's surface without a lander supplied by commercial or international partners, USA Today notes, but companies like Elon Musk's SpaceX and Jeff Bezos' Blue Origin could help them out.


Pretty cool, ATS and in only ten years! This leaves me excited for the future but I won't divulge to deeply into my personal opinion. So, what says ATS?

What's humorous is believing that we land on the moon a number of times.. Then lost all the original footage AND forgot how to do it

Its a big joke for anyone dumb enough to believe it

Fail.

That's pretty cool but my only concern is that NASA aimed to have the James Webb Space Telescope in orbit by 2007 and still we wait , personally I wouldn't put any faith in the 10 year time frame.

NASA needs root and branch change if the Lunar Orbital Platform-Gateway is to stand a chance of becoming reality.

They didn't really lose that footage. Understanding how often and lame the excuses that military controlled projects tell the public their prolific denials of events, says everything the public needs to know, and then some.

Those missing tapes are more valuable than moon rocks and they know where every spec of moon rock is located, and when they get stolen or go missing they stop at nothing to find them and prosecute the villains with gusto. (The moon rocks given to other countries; A few of those have had them go missing because those countries lost interest in maintaining chains of custody). But they never stop looking.

With the missing tapes NASA officials say they are lost and shrug and nothing more is done? Not a CHANCE. That lie is exposed just like many lies they have told the public.

They are part of the international space station along with all the other superpower countries with manned space capability so sure why not?

That's cause social engineering became more important than rocket engineering.

True story.

We've should have had the space revolution that would eclipsed the industrial revolution, and ushered in what should have been the 21st century.

Unfortunately we are living in the new 'dark ages'.

it is the new dark ages brought on by the internet, not sure if it's going to end up being a good thing or not

you have to really have lost your critical thinking skills TDS style to believe NASA "forgot" how to get to the moon, no record of the development of the technology or anything. complete BS

They haven't forgotten.

Forgetting WHO controls NASA ?

I'm not sure that there is a need for a Lunar Orbiter at all Gorty, why not just build a Moon station in the first instance.
I would think also that supplies can be brought safely to the Lunar surface in the same manner as personnel were during Apollo.
