NASA announced it has plans to return humans to the Moon by 2020. This is a rather strange goal given that FORTY YEARS AGO humans were on the Moon. Huh! NASA will be sending an unmanned spacecraft to the Moon within the coming weeks in preparation for the final goal of getting someone to the Moon by 2020. In other words, grandfather got to the Moon in the 1960s, and grandson hopes to emulate what his ancestor did before he was born. The bottom line is forty years of NASA ineptitude and wasting money of tasks that could have been accomplished by unmanned space ships.
Humanity’s destiny is to reach beyond the stars in hope of finding intelligent life that can assist the savage human race and make it civilized. That is the reason for space voyages.
