Not long ago, President George W. Bush said that he wants to start up moon landings again. Do you think this is a good idea?

I don't. We went to the moon already, so why again? I think it'll waste lots of money, and nothing good will come out of it. I think we should look at a possibility of men landing on Mars instead.

yeah we should focas on Mars! or even Pluto!! j/k well if that doggy...i mean Rover landed on Mars theres a good chance a shuttle could land there! *blows up the moon* no go to Mars!

This is going to add another trillion to the glorious American debt. Right? ^_^

Well, it'll add billions to the American debt...

America can always pay off their debt if they want actually... but then to be the only debt-less country in the world is not a good thing due to political reasons.

This is completely politically related to me... and since that kind of topic is banned I'll shut up about this...

I say no to both. I'm too lazy to list my obvious reasons.

January 14th, 2004, 1:50 AM
They could, but for what reason? To see if there really is diamond and water deposites? Meh, I think its better if the government use the money to fix their more internal problems rather than using it on space exploration. It looks like we need more R&D on that anyway.

Oh my vote is "No", don't go there:P.

January 14th, 2004, 3:37 AM
I say yes. We should go there. Then when we ruin this planet we can live on another one =p;

January 14th, 2004, 7:44 AM
I say no to both, this is one of the things I dont go along with Bush on. I mean the only thing the Moon and Mars is a dead rock. And so what if thay find life on Mars (like thay will find any) or signs of water use to be there. What are we going to do pack out bags and live on a planet that no one can live on? All this is is blowing a lot of money for nothing. Ok its not for nothing, thay are going to test a few rocks.

I'll make sure to watch it... ^_^; In my opinion, I don't think we should, atleast not until more important things have been dealt with. I could make a huge list of ways that money could be used to help other people.

I want to make a reminder that Presedent Bush said not just landing on the moon, but also building a BACE on the moon. I however, disagree. I think any place we should build a base it should be on mars. The moon would be a large tecnological advancement, but it is too close to make a difference.

This is completely politically related to me... and since that kind of topic is banned I'll shut up about this... It does seem a little... we'll be sure to watch this, like Kay-chan says. n_n As for me... I say that we should go to Mars. Why go to the moon again? x_x;

January 14th, 2004, 3:52 PM
Seriously, who'd want to live on the moon or mars? I couldn't live without my forests and wildlife... it's selfish to go with the mindset "Oh, well if we phuck up earth, atleast we have another place to live on!" I mean, duh, there's a reason why the Earth is the only hospitable planet in our solar system. We need to fix the problems, both econimocal and environmental, here and quit blowing bucks on superficial space studies.

January 14th, 2004, 4:14 PM
think everyone talked about every possible bad aspects of space explorations already... but no one covered that there's actually ABSOLUTELY NO scientific values to it...

You can say that rocks found on the moon/mars can educate us about those 2 places... however a giant meteor shower in California years ago supplies USA with 10x the amount of moon rock they found on a moon exploration trip. So... why go in the space to study moonrocks when you can do the same on earth? Just wait for the next meteor shower... Plus it's 10x the amount you can get from physically visiting the moon and it's for free too! ^_^; If they really want to study moonstones so badly, go buy the Pokemon game and start theifing Lunatones...

January 14th, 2004, 5:37 PM
if the U.S government is gonna waste money, maybe they can send some to me...

I don't know what Bush's reasoning behind going to the moon was (it may just be voters' support XP), but going to Mars could be petty beneficial. We can get Martians to ally with America in Iraq XD

January 14th, 2004, 5:43 PM
I say no for now.First, just deal with the probelms we are facing now, and when things cool down, then maybe go

January 14th, 2004, 5:46 PM
Well i support this idea it's been almost 30 years since the first person was on the moon and never had the technology they have today now and they prob want to explore it more and Mars well they are saying that Mars is very closely like earth that's why ther studying it and prob want to go to it but this wont prob happen till 2015

January 15th, 2004, 6:07 PM
Well, the theory that no one ever actually went to the moon aside, I feel that this is another ploy to keep the voting public's attention off the US's massive economic and social issues. Shrub is likely also attempting to secure votes from the dreamer idiots who will look at this and say "OMG WEN I GROW ^ I WONT 2 B A ASTRONOT!!11!!1! OMG & JORJ W IZ SENDIN ROCKETZ 2 DA MOON OMG I WIL VOTE 4 HIM!!1!!one". Please note that some of these idiots are, like, twenty-five.

and since no mods are telling us to shut up yet... better blur out everything before we have to shut up then XD

First of all... maintaining a PERMANENT base on the moon will be so expensive... so how much does it cost monthly? Where is the gov't going to get the extra cash from? I hope he's not going to drain it from education fundings or something stupid like that... Just to save some cash, just scrap the idea... Just because China lately has proven itself to be the 3rd country in terms of ranks for space exploration, doesn't mean USA have to "secure their stance" for 1st place. Hopefully both China and USA will just drop this crazy space exploration idea that has nothing more than pride and a feeling of triumph. Hope that both gov't will realize that space exploration = unneeded for at least another century. Let's save the cash and solve some problems on earth... if we're attempting to look for a planet to live on because the earth is no longer a good place for us to live in due to say... pollutions, why not use the cash to reduce pollutions and put the cash in Kyoto Accord instead of risking so much to *try* to build a base on the moon...? This is all just stupid to me...

January 16th, 2004, 2:29 PM
Psst... I think it's stupid too. x_x; The would should be fair, and I think the three countries should join forces together to venture even further. =.=

awww people building on the moon bad....where will me and MoonLight live if they do :( not to mention the rest of the royalty that live in the moon palace.

I think that it would be a good idea. I am kinda space -obsessed and I am sure that we can always learn more about space so going to the moon would be good and people on mars would just be the best thing ever!So even though it is going to cost tons of money, I would really like that it would happen :)

January 25th, 2004, 4:08 PM
I don't really care if we go to the moon again but I would like if we went to Mars or any other planet but the problem is that it would cost much more to go to another planet than to go to the Moon. We would have to make space suits that resist the freezing cold weather another ship that could go that far and enough gas. And many other things we are not reay yet to go to another planet but there are possibilities somewhere in the 20's 30's that we might actually have enough technology to get there. ;)
