Why have they or anyone else not gone "back" to the moon? At all, ever? Not even a little bit. Wouldn't you be interested in other parts of the moon?
It's extremely ignorant to even suggest for one moment that "all the moon is the same" or "seen it done it". Who ever would say such a thing has a an extremely closed mind wouldn't you say?
If we (humans) had done it, every country with a desire to explore would have done it or would be still doing it, the moon is a awesome place to visit (i hope).

Ok, if I am misunderstanding please explain how an Astronaut's shadow can get longer/shorter in length when only walking a few feet?
The final cost of project Apollo was reported to Congress as $25.4 billion in 1973.
In 2009, NASA held a symposium on project costs which presented an estimate of the Apollo program costs in 2005 dollars as roughly $170 billion.

You know, since money is an issue, and this idea would apply to national defense also, i have exchanged emails with George Jung a few times, as he is allowed internet use in prison, and has been for some time, and he still seems sharp enough to go out and make money. Why wouldn't the U.S govt. just take a few entrepreneurs like George Jung or Bernie Madoff, and pull them out of prison, give them a few C.I.A. operatives and a black ops team and set them up in Europe to fund some of these more expensive operations? Doesn't it seem backwards to take the greatest financial earners in this country and lock them up and not put their ability to use? Wouldn't that be a much more fitting way to let them "pay off their debt"?
