    Wink Latest moon mission



    Hello all!

    I am very interested in the new mission being planned to the moon! Does anyone have any info about the pending project? Also, why haven’t we been back in the last 50 years?

    I have no idea, but lets hope its something exciting and not just a military or commercial venture. You would think over the last 50 yrs that everyone would have been all over it but nope , pretty boring

    This is the long-term plan NASA laid out back in September: https://www.nasa.gov/feature/nasa-un...oon-on-to-mars.

    And most recently they announced some of the companies that will be involved in getting us there: https://www.businessinsider.com/nasa...cement-2018-11.

    On the down side, I also noticed that the Smithsonian is removing the Lunar Exhibition
