Errk: But the U.S planted a flag there!!!IT"S OURS, BABY!!!!
Taxbongo: No space agency would mess with our areasIt is part of human culture, not just part of our cultureThe first ones there are always celebrated. We in North American cannot shut up about Columbus even though it was the English who came to dominate north AmericaPlus the wrath we would wrought upon them for such a disrespect would be incentive enough for preservation until drunkards land on the moon

naughtyrev: So no nation can claim sovereignty over a celestial body. Well, I'm no nation, so can I claim something? I want the sun.

Glockenspiel Hero: The Apollo sites will last months at best once space tourism starts
Marcus Aurelius: Plus nothing says tacky like raiding a national treasure.
minnkat: On Apollo 12 in late 1969 Alan Bean visited the Surveyor 3 landing site and brought parts of the lander back to earth, so the "keep sites pristine" thing has already been messed with, by the U.S.Apollo 12 - Surveyor 3
johnny_vegas: why did you put keep sites pristine in quotes? That was never mentioned anywhere; so you made up a requirement so you could "but, but, but...the US!!!!!!"Oh and collecting the surveyor III equipment was part of Apollo 12's mission.
Smoking GNU: Also him being the instigator of several genocides in the Americas after he landed (killing the men, selling the women and children into slavery and so on)
The6502Man: Smoking GNU: Also him being the instigator of several genocides in the Americas after he landed (killing the men, selling the women and children into slavery and so on)You're so cute. You know he never made it to the Americas proper, right?
minnkat: Keeping the Apollo 11 and 17 sites pristine would be desirable due to the significance of those sites.
sendtodave: Man, imagine if they bring pieces of the Apollo back... Or a concrete mold of Armstrong's footprint!That could fund the whole mission! Some jerk on ebay would buy it.
mark12A: It's stupidly simple to sabotage a lunar mission by jamming their comms and tracking data from earth. A quiet word to the Chinese that any crew going anywhere near the landing sites will not be allowed to make it back to earth will be sufficient....
