Moon Station Zebra.

In “world of the future” news, NASA announces it plans to establish a permanently-staffed base camp on the moon by 2024, preferably at one of its poles. (Here’s the rationale.) A moonbase within 18 years? I’m all for it…just keep an eye out for monoliths and make sure Sean Connery runs a tight ship.


One Response to “Moon Station Zebra.”

  1. It still boggles my mind that NASA isn’t FIRST trying to inhabit a deep ocean station on earth! The science would be a lot more relevant in the near term and it would serve as a nice stepping stone.
