Hey, is anyone else excited by the prospect of humans walking on the Moon again ? :-)

This is correctly labelled as "incredibly ambitious" ( if by 2025 ) but that's what the first series was. Ambition in spades. I remember Neil's quick thinking to avoid the rock field that nearly thwarted that first landing. I remember, with tears running down my face, the tension of the moment when he stepped down onto the surface. I remember that it fired my heart and soul, at the tender age of nine, to thinking all manner of wondrous things. If I'm lucky it could happen again in my lifetime.

Epic !

Cheers, Mike.

I totally agree and also hope

I totally agree and also hope we humans can be on the Moon again asap as I think there is still much to discover before we send people to Mars etc.

We are overdue since we

We are overdue since we should already have boots on the ground in Mars. It's one of those things where too many hindrances happened and whenever a new president comes in they redirect what NASA is to focus on. When NASA is a Monopsony there is no demand for anything else. That's why I'm really happy with this Billionaire Space Race but again they are too reliant on NASA. 

Realistically we should be closer to Titan today but unfortunately we barely know much beyond the moon
