In my opinion, it’s about time!   But, President Trump has pointed out that Germany buying gas from Russia could allow Russia to use their dependence as a weapon against them.  

                              Well, us depending on the international space station is the same thing. We have said our quest is to go to Mars.  

                               China has stated it’s own quest to go to the moon.   With this in mind I have my own opinion.

                               Why not build a launching pad with supply’s that could be manned, on the moon.

                               This pad could be used as a jumping off pad to go to Mars. That’s just my opinion.  

                               We depend on Russia to go to the I.S.S. Anyway.
