Sounds like excuses for a failed school project (are we really supposed to believe this?), good luck building a manned base on the moon comrades.

They forgot to shield against cosmic radiation? What kind of nonsense is that?

I really thought they had it together better than this. I fear for the safety of our astronauts riding with them.
