      He'll have to get the fed to print up a humungous amount of counterfeit money for that little idea he has.

      Please click on the links below, more techniques under investigation to come soon...

      I understand that he's trying to be all SCIENCE and EDUCATION and LEARNING and whatnot, but what point would this really serve? What science-y stuff could we learn on it?

      Yeah isn't the moon a barren wasteland? It would definitely be cool and futuristic! But probably unnecessary.

      The moon contains tons of helium isotopes, which are excellent for fusion.

      We could mine asteroids, which is exactly what Google might be gearing up to do. One of the closest asteroids to Earth contains more iron than we have mined in our entire history of mining.

      I guess it's not a COMPLETE barren wasteland then...

      Science is great, but with all this talk about balancing the budget, I don't really understand how Mr. Gingrich can seriously think this is practical. There's plenty of research that can be done here on Earth a lot more cost efficiently.

      I could've sworn I've already seen this movie. It didn't end well.

      Yes, sending short lived human clones to the moon, fooled by imaginary life stories, is only a stone's throw from mining the moon for resources.

      I've been the to moon and it's already covered in bases.

      Then again, this was a dream

      Everything works out in the end, sometimes even badly.

      I want to fight my clone on the moon. I kinda want to fight several of you people's clones, too. Right in the face. Hard.
