    "VP Mike Pence sets 5-year deadline for landing Americans at moon's south pole".

    Now, there's a good laugh! This ain't the Kennedy Administration, folks. The nation is politically divided and effectively broke--and with ZERO real leadership at the top, it just won't happen. Private industry will be the ones pushing the frontiers of manned space flight.

    I'm surprised that Pence didn't propose a nighttime landing on the sun...

    Of course private industry is taking over, That is probably best, more competition. But, with all due respect to your personal opinion, bashing the current administration is just venting. Someone is liable to take the bait and remind you who it was that cut NASA's budget. Lol! Respectfully, Bill
