    Space Exploration now?

    NASA sees earliest manned moon landing in 2015
    LE BOURGET, France (Reuters) - The next mission to land a man on the moon will take place in 2015 at the earliest, the new chief of the United States' space program said on Monday, adding the mission could be followed by the construction of a multinational space station there.

    NASA Selects New Spaceship Firms
    June 14, 2005— NASA chose two established aerospace contractors to begin designs for the next U.S. manned spacecraft, an effort that is gathering increasing scrutiny as the shuttle retirement deadline looms.
    ....
    Initially, the ship, which is called the Crew Exploration Vehicle, will transport astronauts to and from the space station. Ultimately, however, it is to become the base model of a vehicle that can go to the moon and other destinations.

    So it finally starts. Life just might get really interesting over the next 20 or so years.

    That would probably be more viable than leaving from the earth. Why not?

    If we can somehow extent the life of the astronaunt and the problem of losing bone mass it could mean that we can finally travel farther

    The more important element for space travel is the production of food/oxygen and more efficient way of recycling/removal of wast without bring supplies from earth. If NASA or some other organization can't find a way to do this, space exploration will not happen. Especially if NASA wants to build a base on the moon and then travel to mars.

    They will be able to land on the moon, but they will not be able to stay there for long. It is more likely they will have the first landing on the moon sometime near the end of 2020.

    I've read in my Science magazine that (after many NASA scientists criticized Bush's promises of going to Mars so early) some scientists say it would cost more ressources and be more difficult to make a break at the moon before continuing to Mars than going directly to Mars. I need to find that magazine somewhere.

    What we truly need to do is to improve our space shuttle first, if it can't even keep itself from falling apart forget going through space

    we need to invent better technology so it would cost us less
