The Apollo program sent people to the moon but since 1972 nobody has been there. Now, 50 years later, people dream again about having a permant colony on the Moon.
The space agency has decided it has unfinished business on our lunar satellite and wants to set up a permanent base on the moon. The base would be used as a checkpoint between Earth and Mars while also allowing astronauts to study the moon in close detail.
“But to some, saying we’re returning to the moon means we’ll be doing the same as we did 50 years ago. This time, when we go to the moon, we will stay.”
