To the Moon!

Seems silly that we haven't made any attempts to return to the moon since our first landings in 1969-72. We'd probably have colonies on the moon by now if the space program had kept up the momentum it had back then. It should be cake to get us back up there with all the advances in technology in the last 40 years.

NASA is finally seriously looking to put us back on the moon, starting with the Lunar Precursor Robotic Program. Two LPRP missions, the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter and the Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite, are scheduled to launch sometime this year. Russia plans to send cosmonauts to the Moon by 2025 and establish a permanent manned base there in 2027-2032, so we better kick it into gear and get this space race started again!

The moon landing was a lie. A lie! I saw the filming stage at Kennedy and took pictures.

Another strong angular composition from JB. Nice job. It wouldn't work without the moon in there...
