Permanent Moon Base!

Now we’re talking! Nasa wants to build a moon base!

US space agency Nasa has said it plans to start work on a permanently-occupied base on the Moon after astronauts begin flying back there in 2020.

The base is likely to be built on one of the Moon’s poles and will serve as a science centre and possible stepping stone for manned missions to Mars.

The US has already said it plans to build a new lunar spacecraft to succeed the last Apollo mission in 1972.

What? 2020? Are you serious? 14 years? We’ll have certainly gone past the singularity by then.

    And in 14 years, NASA will have to lease space from the every increasing Google Copernicus Hosting Facility (http://www.google.com/jobs/lunar_job.html)
