    I would love the idea, so long as people don't make up some line in the Bible that says "thou shalt not build scientific bases on the moon."

    Or that doing so is unconstitutional, or un-American, or elitist, or part of the "liberal media," or part of neoconservatism, or socialist, or marxist, or maoist, or stalinist, or neil armstrongist, or feminist, or sexist, or what have you.

    The only reason we went to the moon in the first place is because we didn't want the Russians to beat us there.
