“If God wanted man to become a spacefaring species, He would have given man a moon.” – Krafft Ehricke

The Moon will also play a major role in humanity’s future expansion into space. A return to the Moon is the only logical next step if our planetary culture is to evolve into a spacefaring civilization. This is the subject of the next video selection – Base Camp Moon.
