Love how we're worried about building s*** on the moon but refuse to fix problems where we live right now. Sorry to crap on everyone's dreams and turn this political, but it's what I do best.

Is that really Andromeda or an NSA eyeball?

We should have all ready established a presence on the moon. As we continue to suck the earth dry of its resources the need for raw materials an new resources  is all ready upon us, the moon would have been a good place to start looking for new an much needed resources, wasted time an wasted technology could prove disaterious for humanity .

@Lyle Marks I find the either or remarks to be short sighted and unhelpful. Things are being done here, and will continue. Should there be more effort? Of course.. is it ever enough? Not for people like you. The population of the Earth is over 7 billion currently, and scientists figure the Earth can only sustain 8-12 billion. Most of that increase is just in the last 100 years. If we did cure all disease, poverty and famine.. guess how long before we hit the magic number? 


You presume this is the only way. Many great advances in healthcare, science and even things like our phones, basic things in our lives, came from this kind of pioneering and research. Someday, we will move beyond this planet, colonize other planets, that seems like one logical solution to over population.


But you would rather toss rocks at the pioneers and call them selfish. I hope your kind have little influence on science and the future, or we'd all be scratching at the mud crying about the cruel fate of nature.
