>>17167422 As I said recently on /x/, whenever aeuronautics experts talk about getting to the Moon "again" it's always like they're talking from starting from scratch whereas we've been to the Moon at least 7 times already - what's the problem?! Doing it a set number of times should make it easier to get there, not harder...
why would we go through the effort of spending billions of dollars on putting a bunch of people in one of the most hostile environments known to man? it takes a lot of resources and as far as i'm aware we can do a lot of it without putting people's lives at risk via the use of drones and remote craft and what not. that said the experience of a moonwalk sounds fucking awesome so maybe it is worth the money. we need a mars walk.
>>17167622 This right here, Soviet Union stated they couldn't find a way for people to survive the Van Allen belts before they reached the moon.
It's 2016 and Russia has yet to step foot on the moon, despite technology advancing as much as it has.
Couple months ago someone posted a NASA video here on /x/ where an engineer talked about a new space craft, and how it's composition will allow us to face the Van Allen belts for the first time.
Either the guy didn't know you have to go through the Van Allen belts to get to the moon, made a simple mistake, or exposed that the Van Allen belts are a cosmic force we have not been able to overcome yet.
Moon is not viable. Though Helium 3 and resources can be used. The next step for the moon is to build a station. That won't be for sometime (so that is why you haven't seen anyone up there for a while) Frankly though, they should recon the area more. I am sure people would be interested in this day and age. Mars is to far yet. Also the other "earth" is not reachable yet.
>>17169117 Heat would be the main problem because there would be no or little air to carry it away into the surrounding environment. Space guns would need some sort of way to convert the heat into photons or some other form of energy in order to get rid of it.
>>17167944 Apollo spacecraft had microwave oven-tier systems compared to the fancy stuff nasa has now. Every one of nasa's missions deals with calculated risks. We hadn't sent people to the moon before the moon landing, but we were aware of the radiation in the van allen belts. They took a calculated risk and got to the moon and back. In the same way, they took a risk on the o-rings on challenger and got fucked. That's just how spacecraft will be for the next 2 centuries.
>>17170114 >>17170290 Money spent on the military supports a lot of technology development... A lot of it may end up helping space travel But if only we could convince world leaders there was tactical value for a moon base...
>>17167422 i believe that the man hasn't returned to the moon, because the radiation that remains in it after the Saturn modules, equipped with nuclear army, to erradicate the moon's lifeforms that the Apollo misions found, and the buildings that belong to these lifeforms. well, that's i know about this matter.
>>17167422 Because it's expensive as fuck and they don't have anything to see up there, they already know everything about the moon there is to know, Americans are scumbags, they literally only went to the moon to do it before the Russians did it, and we now have telescopes that can basically see the moon up close so we have no need to explore it further
>>17176499 Not cost effective yet. If we ever mine on the moon, it'll be done by robots controlled from Earth. NASA doesn't have the budget, and with the advances in robotics and AI and cameras and sensors, it's just not worth shooting people up into space. The Apollo missions were done mostly for propaganda reasons, and we don't need to prove ourselves to any other countries anymore. Other countries may send people to the moon for similar, symbolic reasons, but there's just no need to risk people's lives for that anymore.
