Anyone who thinks that an American astronaut will walk in the moon by 2024, please call me.

I have some lovely beachfront property on the Sea of Tranquility that may interest you!

Total waste of time and money. We already have spent millions on unmanned probes that have gone far beyond our moon and unlocked mysteries light years away from our rather insignificant earth orbiter. Just this week for instance an image of an actual black hole.

Who knows what some of these SAPs have in technology, antigravity, etc, ?!!
Rockets are anti-gravity technology. But stealth doesn't appear to be too useful in space, except perhaps for military purposes.

Probes are useful for exploring the furthest reaches of the Solar System, but we need to send humans in order to expand humanity’s reach into the cosmos. Another manned moon landing will hopefully lead to bigger things down the line like a Mars settlement.

Landing on the moon just long enough to plan a flag and collect some rocks is just a baby step. It puzzles me that some folks can't see what can be done beyond that baby step. The technical challenge of building structures on the moon is both enormous and rewarding. If we ever hope to colonize another planet, we must start at the moon first.

Imagine if Columbus or whoever first reached America turned around and said, " We have done it. Now let's go home and forget about this land."
