This is a few months old, im sure a few(maybe most?) of you already know. Nasa is going to send astronauts back to the moon" within the next decade" to study and build an outpost! The new moon lander is capable of carrying 4 passengers, and can make the trip in 3 days. They will stay on mars for 7 days, doing god knows what :D.
but what im excited about is that were getting a moon base! finally, it is my dream come true! Humans will finally be living (for 6 months at a time) on another body other than earth. our future as a species will open, well be living in the era described in so many science fiction books.There is still a long way to go till we have mars bases and frequent interstellar travel, but its a begining.

my heart is still racing, im so happy about this! anybody else feel this way, or am i just a space freak ?
