I don't know if this idea has been discussed before, but it was just something that came to me earlier.
NASA went to the Moon (possibly, I'm not sure tbh) and then nothing. Zilch nada nowt sod all. A few orbiting missions and unmanned probes, but no
return to the moon. Or was there?
There is always the chance that life on our planet could be threatened by a large meteor or comet collision. An extinction level event could happen
with little warning. Now is it not within the realm of possibility that the very powerful, super rich people and organizations of Earth could have
been engaged in private sector lunar expeditions? Top secret missions to establish a safe haven on the moon for them and their progeny? I'm not
talking the guy who wins the big lotto jackpot, I'm talking Bill Gates, the British Royal family, the Sultan of Brunei, the Vatican, mostly what you
would call "Old Money" and a few of the more wealthy plebs. In the event of impending cataclysm, this select few would assemble their people and off
they would go, leaving the rest of us to die. They would see it as a great honour to continue the human race until the Earth is habitable again. And
it would eradicate the lower classes too.
Am I talking crap? Possibly. But as I say, you could wake up tomorrow, turn on the TV and the top story on the news could be the approach of comet
earthsmash. What good is all that money if you're not going to be around to spend it because you are pushing up daisies. If you had the money of
Gates and could afford to do it, wouldnt you at least look at the possibilty?
Thanks if you got this far, and apologies if this idea has been thought of before.
