NASA Mission Canceled, Frustrating Scientists
http://fortune.com/2018/04/27/mission-to...cientists/
Quote:Scientists helping NASA put a rover on the moon are scratching their heads about why the mission was canceled and why they were told to end their operations within the next month.

The mission would have involved sending a robot to the moon’s polar region in 2022 to probe for things like underground water and hydrogen.

But, according to the Lunar Exploration Analysis Group (LEAG), a group of scientists that perform analyses for NASA lunar expeditions, the mission had been halted on April 23, and told to wrap up by the end of May.

In a letter sent to NASA Administrator James Bridenstine on Thursday, LEAG asked NASA to re-instate the mission, known as Resource Prospector, or RP, which was still in its early stages of preparation. The mission’s end comes after President Donald Trump signed a directive in December that called on NASA, along with private companies, to work towards returning humans to the moon.

“This action is viewed with both incredulity and dismay by our community, especially as the President’s Space Policy Directive 1 directs NASA to go to the lunar surface,” the LEAG said in its letter (emphasis theirs). “RP was the only polar lander-rover mission under development by NASA (in fact, by any nation, as all of the international missions to the lunar poles are static landers) and would have been ready for preliminary design review at the beginning of 2019.”

Phil Metzger, a planetary physicist at University of Central Florida and a member of the Resource Prospector science team, told The Verge, which broke this story, “There are no other [NASA] missions being planned to go to the surface of the Moon.”

the current generation have forgotten how to land stuff on the moon

they have forgotten how to go back

nothing in 2018 is not cheaper, better, faster, cheaper than in 1969

they actually brought up a foldable golf cart up to the moon with room for 2.

this was in like 1970

now we can't even send a robotic lander to the moon in 2018

things do not add up with the moon landing

one possibility is they went back in the day but there are dead astronauts up there

Asian people are brainwashed on a completely different level. They can brainwash 1.5 billion people into thinking pretty much uniformly. You can brain wash work ethic into asian people. That is the hardest thing to brain wash into a man. It’s easy to brainwAsh sexual degeneracy and frivolous spending. It’s all basic human instinct. It’s much harder to brain wash people to go against their instincts and suppress happiness

Once an asian man is brainwashed. He goes to the grave with his brainwAsh.


Can you brain wash a black man to be hardworking without the whip and chains?

Why is it so hard to send a probe to the moon - when we have one that just floated near Saturn? What's the issue here?

Unbelievable that China wouldn't put a man on the Moon by 2020.

RE: NASA Mission Canceled, Frustrating Scientists
you know what the apologists say? that the US has already done it and there is NOTHING else to see

that' snot the western mindset. the western mindset is to keep refining, exploring and digging deeper.

yet they stopped everything in 1972

instead of going 250K miles to another planet, they are content to hang out around LOW EARTH ORBIT

it's completely ridiculous

they have sent probes. japan recently sent one called KAGUYA

the problem is none of these probes can take pictures of the landing sites with decent resolution

Those who know, know! Big Grin
