FunnyMoon Suite

This may be one of the wittiest and most entertaining slideshows I've ever come across about why NASA is hoping to return to the moon, as a stepping stone to Mars. Thanks to Wayne at The Rocketry Blog for the great post...

Why NASA Is Returning To The Moon

"Science and exploration are intertwined.
EXPLORATION is going into the unknown.
EXPLORATION is looking over the next hill.
EXPLORATION is sacrifice for risky rewards.
SCIENCE is understanding nature.
SCIENCE is observation, hypothesis, experiment.
SCIENCE is asking questions.To do science we must first explore.
Exploration does not equal science.
Exploration enables science."

Exploration is about doing the impossible.
