His blog post arguing that the US should set up a permanent presence on the Moon, develop a "cis-lunar economy", and mine the Moon for water to use as fuel for further space exploration, and that the US needs to get there before the Chinese do ... is just ... well... words fail me.

Facepalm

Jeff Bezos also advocates returning to the moon and building a cislunar economy. And we all know you're ten million smarter than Bezos. Because you can use emoticons!

Facepalm

At work.

Before hopping across to the Moon..... or any where else just in the solar neighborhood. ... what needs to be done is the basic infrastructure funded and developed.

All the development in the world to produce comfy sports type cars is worthless if the road infrastucture doesn't get done.

Some how the Americans lost the technical and industrial capacity to built the worlds most powerful rocket engines.

Which all happened before the end of the last century. Meaning they now have to start from scratch in working out how to build similar scale things again.

Sad

So we should postpone exploring and developing new frontiers until we solve our problems? If we had always followed that policy, humans would still be confined to the Great Rift Valley in Africa. This Johnny Robinson cartoon comes to mind.

At any rate NASA's budget is .5% of the U.S. budget. And the U.S. has the best funded space program on the planet. It's not like cancelling space programs will eliminate the world's problems.
