26. Back to the Moon Sep 19, 2005, 16:08 Hump
 
What possible benefit would going back to the Moon bring? The much talked about theory of water-ice being locked up in craters near the darkside never materialized so any use as a way station/refuel point on the way to Mars is now a non-issue. Like the Shuttle and the Internatl. Space Station this is just another useless PR white elephant that takes resources away from something that could be far more useful ie; the Space Elevator or another Cassini level probe (or several).

Also, using the private sector to manage the project while still using NASA resources/manpower would almost certainly give a better bang for the buck. NASA has proved themselves inept at financial mangement time and time again.
