    Do you think astronauts should return to the Moon or focus on other, like Mars or something?

    Hi Chris,

    People disagree on this, but it seems to me that the Moon is a relatively close (only a few days away), which makes it a better place to experiment with space colonization that Mars - a round trip there could take a year and a half. If something went wrong we could more likely to be able to help the astronauts out. Once we got the hang of it we could try Mars.
