We Like the Moon

So the President is set to announce a plan for a permanent human presence on the moon, as a prelude to a manned mission to Mars in a decade.

I'm not sure how I feel about this. On the one hand, we're four years into the 21st century-- it's about time we had a moon colony, no? On the other hand, I'd like to see this kind of thing funded less by taxpayers and more by investors who believe it could be profitable.

Regardless, a link to the Spongemonkeys is warranted.
