THE RECENT announcement by the Indian government (Chandrayan Mission) to land a man on the moon by 2020 triggered a lot of questions in my mind. Why do we need 12 more years to do something that has already been accomplished and why do we want to redo it? Is this another effort to drain our tax money into avenues we have no clue about or is this really about joining an elite club of the few nations that have managed to launch space missions? The European moon mission , the Chinese moon mission and the Japanese Kaguya moon mission recently completed mapping the moon’s surface and released a lot of information on the moon than NASA ever did. You can download many photos from their sites here.
Ever wondered why NASA suddenly stopped sending people to the moon? Considering that the vision of JFK and the Russians was to colonize the moon ASAP, why would nations stop sending missions to the moon after the apparent success of moon landings in the late 60’s? There was a flurry of moon-landings and then everything stopped suddenly. Not many know what happened to all the research material collected! What explains the renewed interest on the part of US, China, Japan and India in sending man back into space by 2020? If we have already sent man to moon, why should it take us so long to get there again and that too at a time when we are far ahead technologically, compared to the 1960’s? Why apply scarce money to build space stations or send probes to Mars? Why not build a base first in moon and then conduct the other operations?

These articles and videos only increased my curiosity in the matter and I ended up doing some more research (or should I say googled?) into this area. I do realize that I am constrained by the content made available on the internet but it is nevertheless quite engrossing. Also before you dismiss this as fallacy, let me remind you that in a true scientific society, truth cannot be dismissed without adequate research. So I invite you to this quest to find out if we really are alone in this universe. Happy reading and viewing. More links are furnished below from credible sources:
