I agree that we should at least put a station on the moon and then from there its just a hop skip and a jump from Mars.
But seriuosly 100billion to the moon. Technology should have been far more agressive on getting us to the moon at least half that cost?
Well, considering that a private company can do a suborbit for just undeer 10million I would think that alternative fuel and technology would make it alittle cheaper than rockets that we used in the 60's.

In DOSE newspaper yesterday (Canadian daily paper) a former Canadian Defense Minister said in a speech at the University of Toronto said that he believe that the US project to the moon is really aimed at setting up shop to monitor possible alien activity. He also mentioned that he believes that the US has been hiding the alien info from the public since Roswell and that Regan's Star Wars was really aimed at fighting hostile aliens and not Russians.

Kennedy said he wanted to see men on the moon, truth is he didn't give a rats ass about it. All he wanted was for American's to win the space race against the Russians. So we followed up on a dead man's wishes
Fact is, the guys and ladies in the senate don't give a # about space exploration, science, math or anything other than their own goddamn careers.
Because how bad does that look in the history books if you are a US congressman and the Chinese land on the moon and you didn't attempt to place American men on the moon before the dern Chinese got there?
