Why the Apollo program stopped? The marsbase
Something that also bothers us: Why they are now preparing a marsbase? Where is
the so long expected and necessary moonbase? Note that many
important men forty years ago stressed that there
would be a moonbase in a few years after the first moon landing.
A moonbase that would serve so many objectives ...
Now there seems to hide a rabbit in the hat:
Up to the marsbase.
Priceless studies will demonstrate that a marsbase makes a moonbase
Very good seen by our real rulers. So one will
stop complaining about a moonbase. That we should have had luxury
lodgings on the moon already -based on plans from 1969- they seem to be
And that Mars is about 58 million kilometers
away (shortest road,
the longest is 400 million kilometers) seems to be excluded from
the scope of the discussion (the moon
is at a stone's throw of 384.000 kilometers).
And, best scenario, even if Mars has a lot more to offer us -something
we don't see- then the moon must still be a priority. Not only to us but
to every scientist who respects science.
Screening of the Martian surface goes on for a while yet, because you
never know. But it seems to look good. Signals from the media
are positive. As we said: Maybe a lot of scientists will have difficulties
to understand why the moon is suddenly of so little importance. So one rabbit may
not be enough. But then again maybe our real rulers have had enough time
to take some precautions. Maybe they cleaned up the moon or they have
located ‘safe heavens’ on the moon. We don’t know for sure of course.
One thing is for sure: those who will candidate for president or leader
of a great organization better not speak about building a moonbase. At least
for some time to come.
Media will criticize them without mercy, and citizens, as usual, will follow.
