Poll: Should the Moon Be Humanity's Next Step Into Space?

Should the moon be humanity's next stop for space exploration and settlement?

  • Yes! There's so much we don't know about the moon and it's so close!
  • Maybe - But only time will tell if the moon's resources can be used on Earth.
  • No! We've been there and done that. It's time for something new.
