Home on the Moon
By now you've seen NASA's press release and related reports covering the annoucement of NASA's plans for putting people back on the Moon for good.
I note that our favorite lawyer who is second in command at NASA, Ms. Shana Dale, "is guiding the long-term strategy development effort among 14 of the world's space agencies." And this is a slide presentation about the lunar outpost delivered by NASA Deputy Administrator Shana Dale yesterday.
The Washington Post article also includes a one minute clip of the deputy administrator discussing NASA's proposal.
Today and going forward, lots of talk of course about the costs etc., of a permanent moon base at the rim of Shackleton crater.
Meanwhile, just in time, NSS opens its Space Settlement Nexus, a showcase of materials concerning space settlement stuff.
(One sure thing about all this: Sir Ernest Henry Shackleton would have approved.)
