Destination Moon

NASA is vowing to land astronauts on the Moon by 2020. From the nasa.gov page entitled How We'll Get Back to the Moon:



"Before the end of the next decade, NASA astronauts will again explore
the surface of the moon. And this time, we're going to stay, building
outposts and paving the way for eventual journeys to Mars and beyond.
There are echoes of the iconic images of the past, but it won't be your
grandfather's moon shot."



This is not "what if" dream by NASA, this is a statement of intent. I hope they follow through.





 


Robert and Virginia Heinlein on the
set of Destination Moon, in 1949;
the film was based on his novel
Rocketship Galileo.
