I first watched “The right stuff” about 25 years ago and it gave me goosebumps.

I never cease to be amazed at the ingenuity and the sheer vastness of the program.

I know the venture gained a hell of a lot of know how from operation paperclip but I doubt we will ever see anything of its scale ever again.

The Mercury and Apollo programs and the Russian equivalents were indeed incredible in every respect.

Perhaps a mission to Mars will happen in our lifetime. It’s possible.
I would like to think so. NASA’s proposal to the return to the moon, using it as a gateway for further exploration has merit.

Just a pity the idiot in chief doesn’t understand it.

The book Moondust by Andrew Smith is an excellent telling of the apollo program by the astronauts themselves, how it effected them afterwards and what else they did with their lives.

We can escape earths gravity and get back down without getting fried, so once up there when a good shove in the moons direction would get you there why have we not been back regularly. To say there is nothing of interest up there so why go back is a load of bullocks, we're going to the deepest depths of the oceans for a look... Because we are curious.

We know nothing about the bottom of the sea compared to what we know about the moon!

The moon is just a lump of rock. Even if it contained valuable minerals bringing them back would cost a bomb. There is nothing left to go and see there.
