This makes me so angry! I just get livid that this man wants to create a moon base and down here on earth we have American children going to bed hungry. And we also have people living in cars, under bridges etc.... Is a moon base really a priority?
An Apollo astronaut argues that with its vast stores of nonpolluting nuclear fuel, our lunar neighbor holds the key to Earth's future.

The more I think about this the more absurd the reality of a moon base becomes, at least for the next few generations anyway. To think that America, much less a global initiative could construct a moon base with a functioning colony is all but science fiction.
