Japan Plans Manned Base On Moon!

Report: Japan Eyes Manned Base on Moon

TOKYO -- Japan plans to start building a manned base on the moon and a space shuttle within the next 20 years, a newspaper report said Monday.

Japan's space agency, JAXA, hopes to develop a robot to conduct probes on the moon by 2015, then begin constructing a solar-powered manned research base on the moon and designing a reusable manned space vessel like the U.S. space shuttle by 2025, the Mainichi Shimbun said.

The space agency's budget could be boosted six-fold to $57 billion to finance those plans, the Mainichi said.

Full article here.


NASA needs to create plans to accomplish this before the Japanese do. If it requires a lot of money, I think it's something that the Federal government should actually deal with. We need to maintain America's position on top of the world in everything we can, especially as something as important as the field of space exploration. Russia beat us to get the first man into space, and we countered by landing the first man on the moon. We MUST be the first to create a manned based on the moon, something that would be extremely rewarding. This will become another "giant leap for man-kind" and we need to make sure that as Americans we're the ones to take that step. If it requires $60 some odd billion like it will the Japanese, I say it's worth it. This is something that is extremely significant and will go down in history as a very important moment for mankind. It's worth the money.
