NASA planning a permanent Moon base by 2020

NASA Deputy Administrator Shana Dale announced plans for a permanent base on one of the poles of the Moon, with construction starting by 2020. I really hope that this actually happens, but I am not optimistic, with all of the money that we have wasted in Iraq, and on tax cuts for the ultra-rich that have really had a huge impact on the budget deficit.

It’s really pretty sad that we have not made any progress with manned space exploration since Apollo 17 in 1972.
