Lunar Loonies

U.S. Plans Moon Base On Path To Mars

For the first time since 1972, the United States is planning to fly to the moon, but instead of a quick, Apollo-like visit, astronauts intend to build a permanent base and live there while they prepare what may be the most ambitious undertaking in history — putting human beings on Mars.

I don't see how in the world this is gonna work. You gotta figure building this base is gonna take forever since they have to swing those hammers in zero gravity. Not to mention all the time spent chasing tools if they happen to drop any (would you still call it dropped?). Have you noticed also that the more problems the space program seems to have, the bigger the projects and goals are that get announced? At the rate we're going can a plan to colonize Pluto be far off?

LOL. Good stuff. Now you got me picturing those idiots floundering on the moon, with tools floating around everywhere, as they race (in slo-mo) to collect them! Haha!

They'll stop for cheese breaks, of course, when they get hungry. Cuz the moon is made of cheese. So they'll be able to eat the moon.

The moon does have gravity, just less than on earth. So, tools would fall, just slower than they would on earth.
