NASA delays moon lander awards as Biden team mulls moonshot program.   Story is from "The Verge".
I think we can safely predict where this is going.

Yup. Need the money for free stuff and diversity training. If the money stays at NASA, it'll be diverted to "climate change". I notice the article continually alluded to 2024 just being one of those made up Trump deadlines impossible to meet - sorta like a certain vaccine.

If we don't go back, rest assured other countries will.

Leftists are hoping for some Expanse UN style one world government to come about and push this.  It's like they think only white men can be nationalistic.

Eventually someone will go somewhere in space and actually achieve a profitable mission.  At that point, everyone will be trying to get out there.  Maybe corporations like SpaceX will do it first without a lot of govt oversight.

Something about "he that holds the high ground " comes to mind.
Being at the top of a pretty deep gravity well can be advantageous.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

We all got to watch him make the "Drive of Shame" off the range.
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

How many Democrats does it take to fix a problem?  No one knows because it's never happened.

The LabPadre video stream is the clearest that I have found so far.  Looks really good, lots of detail in the closeup video of the Starship.

Nice view of the crash. It never even fully righted. SN8 performed better. Wonder what went wrong.
