Thanks for the link. Talk about an enormous and consequential topic: do you build a lunar orbiter like the ISS is for earth or do you use Falcon 9 to launch big payloads to establish a moonbase?
With all due respect to Robert Zubrin, who does have a science background and was a staff engineer at Lockheed Martin, I couldn't help but ask myself what has he actually done. He wrote a book, he established a society, he develops very interesting proposals and he debates very well.
What NASA has done is absolutely mind-blowing, and we saw it again last week. They actually put men on the moon and returned them to earth in 1969, before HP invented the calculator. The International Space Station is a treasure. We're orbiting Jupiter and taking incredible photos. We've landed multiple times on Mars with crazy technology.
So I dunno. What do others think? I'd love to know what Elon thinks.
