I'm curious on why we haven't since 1972 "publically" I mean to say.
Mostly because politicians don't care about spaceflight and therefore any such project lacks government support on the scale that is needed. As political dinosaurs are slow to die off it'll be quite a number more years until we get back to that. I am not seeing a return to the moon anytime soon for that reason.

Forget the moon. I still want to know exactly what the purpose of the Liberty station is other than a money dump.

If we go to the Moon or Mars or anywhere, let's have a plan and a purpose. WHY would we go there? Best scenario would be to establish an extensive research facility to perform long term exploration of the world plus have a center to understand living in extraterrestrial environments we can't imagine on Earth.

I'm not sure tourist traps are a financially sound ideas but I have no problem if the rich want to go. Only they could afford it and they would make great test subjects for any possible mishaps.

Apollo 18. Just saying...
I was not fond of that movie. Of course I find the "found film" genre of horror to be a bit overplayed. But! I suppose it is a chance for lesser known actors to get starring roles. I mean the actor who portrayed Captain Benjamin had several starring roles afterwards, so thats a positive.

But still, I do not like the genre. Not even the mother of all found films - The Blair Witch Project. You know people were actually angry when they found out the people weren't really dead? And on an ending note Paranormal Activity was way to predictable.

Anyways! Going to the moon again? That's exciting.
