Why the Apollo program stopped? Elon Musk
Moon tourism? Companies like Space Adventures (there are more) are talking about it for years. The costs would
be sky high for us normal citizens. But not for the many billionaires. No doubt in our mind that
private companies can reach the moon for a fraction of the costs NASA made us believe. But will our real leaders
allow private companies to launch a rocket to the moon?
And than there is SpaceX with Elon Musk as founder, CEO and lead designer ... a company we are not going to dwell on
but which could surprise the world ... with the permission and under control of our real leaders. Without these conditions misfortune
could be around the corner.
There are many people that achieved exceptional goals.
Most of them have worked all their life to perform
one great achievement.
But there are some we
admire -without putting them on a pedestal- for the many different
gifts they seem to have. And for their audacity.
Elon Musk is gifted in many ways, multifunctional, brave,
hard for himself and
for his workforce, emotional ... sometimes.
A billionaire, but he seems to have a
genuine humble personality.
And for sure, he's a man. Although we are stubborn in our concept that
women -generally spoken- are superior to men ... in some way.
Elon Musk is a superman. He knows the future lies in space.
He knows we have to
colonize space. But about our moon he doesn't talk much. Why not?
We don't know, but we know his greatest partner in space programs
is NASA. And we know the real rulers (NASA, with such a peanuts budget,
has become a child of the real rulers)
the moon to be colonized. Elon Musk (and NASA) are going to build
a moonbase (again). 'By doing so we can explore Mars and
space in general' (again that booring old story),
a self-evident thruth expressed more than 50 years ago ...
According to Musk (and to NASA with a little reservation)
we must soon colonize Mars.
In fact, that's what we conclude when we read the interviews.
You became a mystery to us mister Musk if we read that you
apparently don't see the need to colonize the moon, not even
just a little bit.
Believe us or not, but all problems about lunar habitats could be
according to many scholars and then we even don't mention moon
tunnels or glass domes. (Take note about the fact
that those scolars aren't crying out loud to build a moonbase.
Why not? Because they are afraid to lose their reputation.)
And when you said mr Musk that Mars is only 150 times further
then our moon -every two years Earth and Mars reach their closest point-
we even thought for a second that with your Tesla racing car you
must have lost contact with the idea of distance.
ONLY 150 times? Is that your way of saying that reaching the moon
must be -what all insiders probably know- just a piece of cake?
Strange man you are mr Musk, but we like you. Though maybe we may give you some advice?
Some of our real leaders could see you as a thread, so stop with your space program ... or become a full-time employee of NASA ...
