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.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.
Turns out the carbide in the pencil could short out electrics and the ussr changed to its version of the pen shortly afterwards. https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/fact-or-fiction-nasa-spen/I still think the funniest thing was the Americans spent a fortune developing a pen that would work in space whilst the Russians took a pencil .
I'd have thought it would be a lot more interesting being on the moon than on a floating space station which they spend a fair bit of time on.No oil on the moon!
