Capitalism: The Final Frontier

My inner child is doing cartwheels over this APOD report. A dutch architect has constructed the most complete set of plans for hotels on the moon thus far. A BBC report I heard this weekend guestimated such an endeavor could be possible in around fifty years. I will be seventy-seven at the time if this speculation is correct, so the idea of me hitting golf balls into moon craters some day is not an impossibility. Very exciting.

Also interesting is talk about sub-contracting the business of converting moon ice into oxygen to private industry.

A possible transition for oil executives worried about losing their jobs to green technology?

I drink your space!

I second the motion to send our oil executives into space.

I agree with you, but seeing that your name link directs me to the drudge retort, I suspect we have different meanings.
