If humanity does it won't be the Americans doing it, not unless Musk or Bezos have a commercial reason to. My money's on China.

I hope they do and they should kick down the US flag on the moon. That way Trump's ego will have the Americans go back to put another one up.

Naval aviator (attack squadron pilot, test pilot), Apollo 12 LM pilot, Skylab 3 commander, and professional artist. The man certainly got things done!

From Chaikin's A Man On The Moon: "In their fifty-nine days in orbit Bean and his crewmates zapped the productivity meter so far off the scale that it was only halfway through the next Skylab mission that mission control stopped thinking there was something wrong with the third crew, whose performance was closer to normal. For Bean, like Pete Conrad, Skylab stands out above his moon flight - but not for the same reason. Circling the earth for weeks on end, Bean says, was less risky than going to the moon - but more demanding: "I had a better personal feeling at the end of Skylab than I did at Apollo 12, because it took more self-discipline to work doing similar things day after day after day. On the moon mission it was different every day, and, I mean, anybody could do well on that, anybody that had been trained." In the end Bean is most proud of himself not for bravery, but productivity."

Due to extreme exposure to the solar rays, the American flag will have been turned completely white.

But did we really go? ,,, Obviously, as the earth is as flat as a pancake, there would be no gravitational assist to send them to the moon ! I swear as I was flying my mighty 1-filthy the other day, I could see the curvature of the earth ( at 9000 asl) but alas, it was the distortion caused by the windshield !!! Anyone hear what the latest was on the Aliens in Antarctica and whether the reincarnated Hitler is still conversing with them ?

Sad day. True heros pass and we are left with nothing to replace them.
