It's possible that we may secretly have astronauts on the moon now, or we may be going to the moon on occasion, but I cannot see astronauts being stationed there for a long period of time.
It's hard for the human body to remain in the weightlessness of space without suffering serious side-effects, including bone and muscle loss.

Ok first post
Perhaps some of you people are a little TOO paranoid. It's not as though the person in charge of " man working on the moon operations " would have typed the document.
Some desk jockey would have typed it + it's just a bad choice of words..
This one is a little over the top.. Put some common sense back in guys, honestly.

A method and apparatus are provided for delivering lunar generated fluid to Earth orbit from lunar orbit. Transport takes place in an external tank of a shuttle which has been suitably outfitted in Earth orbit for reusable travel between Earth orbit and a lunar orbit. The outfitting of the external tank includes the adding of an engine, an electrical system, a communication system, a guidance system, an aerobraking device, and a plurality of interconnected fluid storage tanks to the hydrogen and oxygen tanks of the external tank. The external tank is then propelled to lunar orbit the first time using Earth based propellant. In lunar orbit, the storage tanks are filled with the lunar generated fluid with the remainder tank volumes filled with lunar generated liquid oxygen and hydrogen which serve as propellants for returning the tank to Earth orbit where the fluid is off-loaded. The remaining lunar generated oxygen and hydrogen is then sufficient to return the external tank to lunar orbit so that a subsequent cycle of fluid delivery is repeated. A space station in a higher Earth orbit is preferably used to outfit the external tank, and a lunar node in lunar orbit is used to store and transfer the fluid and liquid oxygen and hydrogen to the external tank. The lunar generated fluid is preferably 3He.

I really doubt there is a man working on the moon. He would have to be making 200K a year and NASA can't afford that.
