I would love to travel the world over and over. The newer the place the better. I love the land and learning about those out of the way places everyone skips because there is no time or they have human distractions that the true beauty this world has to offer is to quiet or not shiny enough. I can not get enough of the pure Glory Earth has to offer. That being said I can’t imagine ever wanting to leave. The monotone the moon is offering is probably not a large enough lure to get me to break with gravity. The only thing wrong with earth is there are to many people.

Sounds like fun to me and is it closer to Heaven? Anything that gets me closer to my eternal home is a DO for me.

No thanks. While current technology is capable of building a moon base they haven’t perfected radiation shielding yet. I get enough radiation already from X-ray’s and scans and don’t need any more thank you very much.

No, I like the trees, fresh air, and wild animals.

Definitely – I’d stay as long as they would have me.

Okay, but you can NOT be the commander of Moon Base Alpha!

I would absolutely fly to the moon, provided there was no out of pocket expense to me!

Yes I would go. Life is short and if you can travel to new places. I say take it. I have nothing to lose at the age of 74.

Yep, I’m with you Bud! I too am 74 and would definitely spend a week on the moon (in a proper environment). Somebody else would have to pay for my trip though ’cause Social Security doesn’t quite come up with the cost of just getting to the moon!

I said yes, but only if it was full hook up.

There are too many things at home that need doing on a regular basis that already are frequently delayed in order to go RVing. I don’t have any need to be in outer space when I already have a nice house and RV that I thoroughly enjoy.

I was fortunate to work on Project Apollo during my working career at Cornell Aeronautical and Calspan in the mid to late 1960’s. Would jump at the opportunity to “Go to the Moon’.

Ever since watching Star Trek as a teen and the moon landings I’ve wanted to go to space. Lack of math ability kept me out of science so my dreams of space travel via NASA couldn’t come to fruition. If only they could beam me up.

When I was younger and loved flying I would have gone. I was born in the UK, lived in France then moved here. I am considering one more move but it would be by ship not plane! A dilemma because I love visiting other countries and cultures.

Nope staying right here. What happens when that EV rocket runs out of battery power any hook ups on the way. We need to spend the money on this planet we’re destroying. So send all the billionaires up one way we’ll watch their money.

I wouldn’t mind being anywhere but on earth right now. The way things are going here it may be the only alternative soon.

Of course I most likely would be long only memory on this planet. I don’t think I would pay thousands of dollars for the Moon experience. America has too much to explore, and so little time.

I don’t go to foreign countries, I sure wouldn’t leave this beautiful earth to go to a hostile environment like the moon.

How sad that you won’t consider coming to Canada. Traveling to other countries gives an appreciation for other cultures.

It also gives one an appreciation of just how good our own country is. We Americans tend to take for granted our freedoms and our governmental institutions until we see how bad it can be in another country (not Canada, thankfully). If every American lived in a foreign country for awhile, they would appreciate coming home a little more and perhaps make more of an effort to preserve what makes America great, warts and all. I wouldn’t trade her for any country in the world but wouldn’t mind visiting the moon, just to see the pale blue dot!

Well said. Whenever I visit another country, it always make me feel incredibly lucky to have been born in Canada. No country is perfect, but compared to most that I have visited, I will take Canada every time. Being born in the U.S. or Canada is definitely winning the birth lottery.

It’s been too long since I’ve visited Canada and look forward to seeing your beautiful country again before hanging up the keys. Thanks for being such a great neighbor!

13 months and one day in South Korea for Uncle Sam, left me very happy to have been born in the USA where I want to stay.
