Now that the US elections are over attentions may soon be turning to a new manned mission to the moon.

Fox News said:

NASA is serious about sending astronauts back to the moon's neighborhood and will likely unveil its ambitious plans soon now that President Barack Obama has been re-elected, experts say.

Has anyone claimed the moon yet?  It would be a good missile base, surely.  With your enemies not wanting to destroy the Moon.

Seems the issue of outer space claims is "up in the air"...

At the heart of science is an essential balance between two seemingly contradictory attitudes--an openness to new ideas, no matter how bizarre or counterintuitive they may be, and the most ruthless skeptical scrutiny of all ideas, old and new.
This is how deep truths are winnowed from deep nonsense. -- Carl Sagan

Well if you wanted to go to Mars it might be easier to launch from the moon.  The ship could be bigger and use less fuel doing it.

Well, it's about time. I was born during the Apollo era, I would have bet that we would already have a moon base by now.

Obviously I would have lost the bet.

Right with you buddy.  Some of my earliest memories are of watching moon landings live.  That was a great time to be a kid.  I thought for sure I'd have a job on an orbital facility or something.  I hope it's soon!

Same here.
I thought by the time I was an old geezer we'd be getting space-taxis to Moonbase Alpha (Soho district).  *sigh*

The rocks in my head fill the holes in yours.

It is easy to spout the wisdom of others when you have none of your own.

Insult me all you like but remember that i have a sword.

I'm glad i voted for Obama though thats for sure. I almost didn't vote for Obama because he cancelled Bush's Space Program.

Iron Sky was great. Though it was historically inaccurate as the Nazis didn't wear black by 45. They wore field grey,apart from that spot on. Loved "That isn't a computer, THIS is a computer" scene.
