One thought on “Lunar Resources”

  1. I seem to have to always bring these things up when trying to communicate the necessity of the Moon, as the University of Space Exploration. The United States dropped out in 1972, and merely flirted with the admissions office in 1994 and 1998.

    Thank God people like you kept the fires lit over decades.

    It’s particularly exciting now that we can see LRO and LCROSS stacked and packed, ready to return us to Freshman Orientation, with the other precursor missions waiting in the wings. Let’s hope. rather than drop out, the United States doesn’t simply flunk out this next time.
