 “What can we Learn from Going Back to the Moon?”

                   By: Phil Youngblood

—This is part of an ongoing celebration of The Science Circle’s 15th Anniversary.

There were more missions to the Moon last year than there were in the last decade and a half. Plus, there are at least 12 countries with funded Moon missions under development and more that are proposed. Of these, 4 countries are planning crewed missions and 2 have plans to build a Moon base within a decade. In addition, there are non-governmental entities involved in more than just providing parts.
