It would be worth more science if you came back with the samples instead of transmitting them.

Still dusty up here.

I wonder when we'll be sending a landing probe to visit the old landing sites. I know it'll happen eventually - we're just too nostalgic as a species not to visit it - though I know it won't be happening for some time of course.

Can't go and visit something that isn't there.

$280 million to spend four months looking for lunar dust? OK, now I'm outraged.

Yeah because when they are done they throw away all the new technology and advances and start from scratch.

It's too hard to fake the gravity of the moon so it was faked on Mars instead.

DAMMIT!  Now I've got that "Whalers on the Moon" song stuck in my head!  Curse you!

Anyway, this is kinda cool.  Looking forward to more pics coming.

When you save your fuel calcs to have something to do during your lunar retro burn, these decisions make themselves...

Realistically though, what real science could be done from another manned moon expedition?  Even on Mars, we now have a robotic science lab.  The only thing a manned mission could do would be bring back samples (which would insanely awesome and cool though).  The benefits don't really outweigh the costs.

That said, I would still love to see a manned mission to Mars in my lifetime.

See?

Nasa is just a bunch of Geologists. It's why they can't find life on Mars.
