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.
You forgot about Atlas and Delta. These are much better suited for the task than Shuttle ever was, and can be upgraded quite cheaply and quickly to even surpass Shuttle capacity. Not to mention that it would allow NASA to parasite on endless DoD budgets.edit on 26/1/12 by Maslo because: (no reason given)
Newt Promises 'Permanent US Base on Moon' if he's Elected: (now we're talking!)

How someone who joined ATS in 2009 can fall for the obvious lies and eternal babble of this pig faced moron is beyond my comprehension. He is the manifestation of corporate greed, dishonesty and disgrace of nowadays US of A.
