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.
