Let me know when we're able to start bringing back large quantities of H3.

Never before this last century have people tried to preserve the most insignificant things. Why did nobody think to preserve the first landing sites on the Americas? Because it wasn't the first steps that made any difference whatsoever, it was all that came after, the problem is that nothing came after the moon landings. And why would there be, we can't set up bases or colonies there till we deal with the largest issue of space travel--->cosmic radiation exposure.

Why do we need to preserve a vacant, distant, remote chunk of the New Mexico desert?

That's He3. Making it illegal to video the sites on the moon is a good way to pretend they are there.

That's right, Helium 3.  I only know about it from the movie Moon with Sam Rockwell, which is a pretty good watch if you're in to stoic sci-fi.  Anyway, is it actually illegal to video the moon landing sites?  I mean you can look at them through a powerful enough telescope.

Why do we need to preserve some giant stone Bhudda statues that no true Muslim would ever look at, let alone consider part of their heritage?

But that's what the secret Nazi moon colonists want you to see.  And the aliens that they are in cahoots with.  In all reality, the moon is a habitable place with a breathable atmosphere, but the Nazis and the aliens want you to think it's a terrible place.  That's why NASA, who got a lot of rocket scientists from Nazi Germany(part of Operation Paperclip), faked the moon landing.  Not the actual moon landing itself, per se, but what they really saw on the moon.  Armstrong did see UFOs and aliens on the moon, but he also saw that the moon was full of oxygen and had a blue sky.  Alternative 3 was right in a way, but not the entire truth.
I know this is true because I have a telepathic connection with the Pleadians like Billy Meier.

These are the best images of the moon landing sites that were taken from the LRO in low orbit around Moon overlayed on top of a shot that Hubble took of the Moon landing site with scaling marks to show location and size comparison:

For now the Moon is a big wilderness area, like Antarctica.

Anyone can have all the space their expedition needs, but nobody can legally "own" it.

Common courtesy and mutual respect will decide the right distance between camps.

As more expeditions arrive and permanent residences grow, it's only natural that they will congregate together, and in future centuries these will become the Lunar nations of New America, New China, etc.

Who am I kidding, this country will never be able to send men into space again. It's time to start learning Chinese.

On a lighter note, if we don't preserve it we'll get "Whalers on the Moon" by Monsanto.

I'm confused. Does China plan on using our sound-stages? Why don't they just build their own?

Noticeably F.A.T.: George Babbitt: Never before this last century have people tried to preserve the most insignificant things

One of the major reasons that civilization has developed at the rate that it has and in the same locations is the practice of building on top of the old with the new.

Do you think we would be better off if we had left, for example,img.fark.net New York as it was in 1750 as shown here?
