"A real chance we can not miss"

Posted 05-25-2013 at 01:45 AM by paddy2

Scientists are starting to consider a return to the Moon big time. A meteoroid nicknamed “Slowcoach Mary” may bring over 4000 litres of water to the moon.

Scientists tracking the object have predicted the object will hit or pass within 100km of the moon in 20 months time. “This is a once only opportunity. This thing is bigger than all the other man made objects we have sent to the moon put together”.

With recycling this water would easy support a team of 100 on the moon. A number of private companies are putting together plans to return to the moon. “This is something we just have to do”. “There have been talks of capturing a meteor before but the speeds and trajectory have made it just that, talk. Here we have a real chance, a real chance we can not miss”

    Won't a lot of this be blasted back into space, *if* it hits in the first place?

    Having such a slow and low trajectory means much of it will survive plus its a cost effective means to get 1000kg of supplies onto the moon!!!
    I have much of the base "drawn" and ready to release, this was a way to force me into some kind of timetable to finish and maybe drum up a bit of interest.
