So he changed his mind mid-sentence? We shouldn't be going to the Moon, but to Mars, although going to the Moon is part of going to Mars? Incoherent stream-of-consciousness typing.

Anyway, he's not wrong in one particular - revisiting the Moon is kinda silly. (If that is what he's saying, Lord only knows.) Of course, using NASA as a jobs program for the Shuttle supply chain and not as the cutting-edge agency it used to be will keep us firmly in LEO, anyway.

Iím thinking he is misremembering the theory that the moon was formed when a chunk of the Earth broke off after colliding with a Mars size object.

"Listen now to the interpreted wisdom of the God-Emperor!" Anyway, it was his own administration that just recently declared it their goal to have NASA carry out a Moon landing by 2024. Admittedly, there's a snowball's chance in hell that'll happen, but the signals are a tad mixed.

Nothing new here. Sheila Jackass Lee knew that the moon and Mars were the same thing years ago.

Quote:

Five years earlier, during a visit to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California, Jackson Lee asked a guide whether the Mars Pathfinder had managed to photograph the flag planted by Neil Armstrong in 1969. Needless to say, the rover missed it ó by several million miles. At the time Jackson Lee was one of the handful of House members tasked with setting Americaís space policy.

So many questions...

Millions of Americans think this guy is smart.

NASA says you are wrong...

Moon2Mars

Exploration of the Moon and Mars is intertwined. Our sustainable Moon to Mars exploration approach is reusable and repeatable. Over the next decade, we will build an open exploration architecture with as many capabilities that can be replicated as possible for missions to Mars. The Moon is a testbed for Mars. It provides an opportunity to demonstrate new technologies that could help build self-sustaining outposts off Earth.

We will use the resources of the Moon to enable farther exploration.

Actually, he is talking out of both sides of his mouth again...

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/201...ica-back-moon/

"President Donald Trump formally announced last night that he is sending Americans back to the moon.

Nearly half a century after the last human being set foot on the lunar surface in 1972, Mr Trump said the moon would be used as a stepping stone to a Mars landing.

He signed "Space Policy Directive 1" which ordered NASA to "lead an innovative space exploration programme to send American astronauts back to the Moon, and eventually Mars".

As he signed the directive at the White House, with Buzz Aldrin present, Mr Trump said: "We will not only plant our flag and leave our footprints, we will establish a foundation for an eventual mission to Mars, and perhaps some day to many worlds beyond."


Does anyone really expect trump to keep steady on anything?

He's talking about the NASA mission to Mars, 2020 I think. Does he have to spell everything out.
