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:
Is a marsbase the rabbit?
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.
we should have had luxury
lodgings on the moon already -- they seem to have
forgotten. They seem to have forgotten to colonize the moon, to mine the moon, and yes, to
build a real economy on the moon ...
At least that is our conclusion after reading the many articles and real plans dating from the sixties.
If they would have done half of what they had (see link) PLANNED, NOT DREAMED, in the sixties it's only logical
to conclude that everyting mentioned above would have been a reality by now.
That Mars is about 58 million kilometers
away (shortest road,
the longest is 400 million kilometers) is apparently of no importance (the moon
is at a stone's throw of 384.000 kilometers).
And, best scenario, even if Mars has a lot more to offer -all things considered, we doubt that- 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
For sure 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? Who will say?
We think that those who will run for presidency 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 ...
BUT: As we said: 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. (We are waiting for a second rabbit.)
