NASA sets sights on the Moon
Well, it's about time:
NASA is fleshing out details of launch vehicles, robotic and human exploration systems that can enable a sustained back to the Moon effort, including possible establishment of an Antarctic-like lunar outpost (Space.com).
If there is any hope for the survival of the human race, we have to make to begin seeding other planets so we are not so tightly bound to the fate of one world. I am very excited about the possibility of a moon base and I hope to see one in my lifetime.
