It is good to see folks in this town think of things out of this world. Over at the Space Politics Blog, they’ve reminded us that there are Members of Congress who are focused on the future of the U.S. space program. And returning to the moon, colonizing it, should be part of that effort. Now about using it exclusively for military purposes? The jury is still out. We need to get there first and be able to sustain humans up there for an appreciable amount of time. I say we allow folks like Richard Branson, Donald Trump, and Sheldon Adelson take a shot. Give them a space exploration tax credit. A hotel on the moon? You have my attention.
