Do You Think Man Will Ever Go Back To The Moon?

I had very high hopes, until the Obama administration slashed NASA's budget, canceling the projected Moon revisit and the Constellation Program. I still believe that Man will revisit the Moon though. It is too great of an opportunity to pass up, especially from a militaristic standpoint. I could foresee a revisit in my lifetime, but I think it will become more realistic after new propulsion technologies become available. As it stands with current rocket propulsion, it costs millions of dollars just to send one gram of weight into orbit.

Honestly, it was kind of a miracle that we ever got to the Moon in the first place. The computing power of the Apollo rockets is exceeded by modern calculators. There were much more tangible and horrifying threats to the country that the NASA budget could have been spent on. I think we would need another Cold War to get back to the Moon, or even to Mars. But like I said, I am optimistic.

I agree,the propulsion system is a huge stumbling blockand,it will have to improve greatly before they even think of moon landings.
I read some time back, that the pc i'm using has enough power for ALL the Apollo flights

Sadly, no. I think the next space hurdle might be Mars. Even a Mars landing is a long shot with everything that must be overcome for a long space journey.

Not the way things look now. As far as the United States going back there is no money because our politicians have found too many other ways to waste it.

I do NOT believe so because the politicians are too busy spending OUR money on other unnecessary things.

Assuming we went there in the first place we will go back again.

Not any time soon and not in the hurry we should be going.
I really think humanity is doomed to die on this planet when we need to be out trying to find other inhabitable places as soon as possible.
Not because I think doom is looming, but why wait until the last minute ya know :)

You're right Joe.Unless we, sorry they, get the finger out, we're all going to fry exactly where we are.They should be using all thier experts to find a new propulsion system,which does't cost millions of dollars a throw.
Catch you later

I believe so, if only to provide a handy staging post for a Mars expedition. Sadly not in my lifetime, however!

Thank you Madmac.You may well be right.I've read,and heard on tv,that Mars is the target to reach in the next 40 years????

Why bother it's a reflection..where you get a trophy for having another look at one of the bell ends of the earth.  We should spend our time producing and producing so that more people can enjoy a different side of the bell shape of the earth.

I saw something on tv about the Chinese, saying they are going to try and put someone on the moon,and they can afford it! I don't think it will happen,not soon anyway.I was just wondering what other people thought,that's all.

Yes. Anything is possible. I believe someone or something will make it to Mars. I believe.

Yes i do willlielad, i think that they will want more tests on it to see if anything that has made a crater has come from a planet that can sustain life.
