I think it's kind of funny that Gingrich would like to put up a permanent, multi billion dollar facility on the moon, in less than 8 years..
NEWS FLASH for Newt. We can't build a base on the moon because we CANNOT GET THERE. The last vehicle we had with even a marginal ability to be modified to the task is now sitting in museums or mothballed for national archives.

Falcon Heavy, Atlas V HLV and Delta IV Heavy are only half the power of the Saturn V.
To build a base on the Moon your going to need something equivalent or bigger than Saturn V.
