It doesn't matter whom build a base on the moon it just has to been build by somebody. Just to show that we can it with tech we got now. So people say whow if they can it why don't we go...

I'm astonished about the future installations on the moon. By 2015, huh? Can somebody reply to my question please. For what reason are they putting installations in the moon? Are they installing for studying the moon more decisively? To study the soil? Are there going to be people living there? Thank you.

I think the date is now about 2018.

Well they won't start putting installations on the Moon right away, but they want to eventually. The reason for wanting to do this is partly for studying the Moon and other Moon related things. It would also give us a chance to learn how to live off world and eventually start setting up places on Mars. The other reason I'd say for doing this would be, because we can.

There will be no American moon base. This was just an attempt by the President to stop his slipping poll numbers and deflect attention from the WOT.

If there is going to be any moon base It will be Chinese.

I see on the news today that president Bush has said that man will return to the moon and make a permant base there, for those that belive that there are already structures on the moon and the government knows about it, do you believe they will incorporate those structures in their designs and say they built themselfs, What do you all think


For the interest of interest, here is a thread that has got some serious time dumped into it . A lot of discriptive pic's of anomalies and possible justifications for there being a base in place already, "Check it out!!"

I actualy feel quite sad at the prospect of this project. We've totaly screwed up our own planet, lets not let people like Bush do the same to another one.

It's a rareity nowadays to look at something so untouched and as beautifull as the planets, lets leave them that way eh?

Haven't really done any research into this, but it does sound interesting....I'm going to look into it and see what else there is to dig up...

Nasa doesnt need anymore money. Hell they cant justify their gross expenditures as it is. If Nasa wants more money for the moon then simply cancel the Flying brick Shuttle program and its over charged supports and the billions saved from cutting that albatros would easily fund the Moon and more. No more money for Nasa IMO. Make due with the billions they allready get. Plus isnt the Rocketry technology pretty much a proven technology that has been around for 40 + years. Also Nasa and the Usaf have up to date rocket lauch facilities allready so WTF do they need so much more invested for if most of the kinks have allready been worked out in the Apollo days. Im very skeptical of giving more money for things that allready have been paid for.
On a positive note Im glad they are done doing the expensive orbiting shuffle and finally going for the resources available on the moon. To bad this has taken 30+ years to come to play again.

Like with the mars thing, Bush just says this # so that, if at some point in the future we spend the trillions on space exploration to make this happen, his political allies can claim it as part of his 'legacy.'

Think JFK, only without actually doing anything.

Compaired to the War budget, NASA's is pocket change.

That's the plan, since they can't get to the Moon in the Shuttle.

Easier said then done. $16 billion when spread over all the various programs at NASA gets used up fairly easily. They are trying to 'make due'.


Plus isnt the Rocketry technology pretty much a proven technology that has been around for 40 + years. Also Nasa and the Usaf have up to date rocket lauch facilities allready so WTF do they need so much more invested for if most of the kinks have allready been worked out in the Apollo days.


I fail to understand your point. That's like saying aircraft are a proven techonology and that we've been flying them for the last 100 years. Yet the F-22A costs what, almost $200 million? (note that one shuttle launch costs aproximately $55 million)

Also, compairing Apollo era rockets to the ones today is like compairing the B-52 to the B-2. Two very different aircraft that both needed testing to get there 'kinks worked out'. You just can not compair them.


Im very skeptical of giving more money for things that allready have been paid for.


But nothing has been already paid for. It costs money to develop new systems. Just like new aircraft that need to go through years (or decades) of testing.


On a positive note Im glad they are done doing the expensive orbiting shuffle and finally going for the resources available on the moon. To bad this has taken 30+ years to come to play again.


And you can blame the US Government for that. NASA had plans to go back to the Moon and set up a base back in the 70's, but NASA's budget was severely cut.

wasnt there theories of "project horizon" supposedly a moonbase already there? Or one set up by the Nazis?

Do you think that by 2015 you will be any closer to realizing that the Moon landings could never have happened 40 years ago. The evidence is that you have no capacity for understanding that and will have to be told it because left to you own devices or even with help could never figure it out. Thats all you need to know, other talk is just nonsense, you'll see, but sadly even then you wont see because you haven't noticed for the past 30 years so what difference will 10 more years make.
