D'ya wanna be a spaceman?

In previous posts, I have alluded to the fact that I like sci-fi. I'll elaborate - since the age of around four, I've wanted to be a spaceman.

So I'm delighted by the news that NASA is going to build a permanently-manned moonbase.

Yeah, so the base is going to 'serve as a science outpost as well as a testbed for technologies needed for future travel to planets'.

But what I want to know is - when can we start taking lunar holidays?

No-one's been to the moon since well before I was born, but hey, bring it on - I'm ready to volunteer.

At least it doesn't rain on the moon.

I would stay on the moon for week or two. Hopefull it will become a hot vacation spot once the space station becomes functional. ;-)

Here's hoping Blue - I'm still discgruntled that we aren't living in space - I always imagined that that's how things would be from about the year 2000 onwards!
