      China, India, Japan, and possibly Russia plan to go to the moon so would the USA not go?

      If the cost of rocketry drops enough Australia might also send somebody to the moon, though at current costs it is not very likely.

      He is the patron of impossible causes because the scriptural Letter of St. Jude, which he authored, urges Christians to persevere in difficult times.

      But so far, the WHY seems pretty vague, individual and subjective. So far, it seems mostly egotistical, "It is man's DESTINY ...." Really? Maybe we should focus on doing a MUCH, MUCH better job of caring for this planet and being good residents HERE?
      Preach it brother, I think Trump and China need to hear that message since they are ones allowing so much pollution. China and the US are the two biggest contributors of greenhouse gas

      Maybe we can build a pipeline to dump it all on Mars. Apparently the Martian polar ice caps started to melt as well. Maybe we'll find little green men driving around in Hummers or something.
      "Do what thou will shall be the whole of the law" - Aleister Crowley

      "If you love me, obey my commandments" - Jesus Christ

      The Bible comes as a complete package. If we want to pluck verses out of context so make them mean what we want them to mean, if we want to ignore the passages that are inconvenient to our outlook, we should be intellectually honest enough to throw our Bibles in the trash and admit we are following Crowley and not Christ.

      The space program has been of immense benefit to mankind in a great many completely unexpected ways. I say "Go for it" but as an international effort like the ISS. Sooner or later mankind will have to leave the womb.
