When will the next Moon Landing take place, and how will it be undertaken? Up until last February, the answer would have been sometime in 2019, and aboard space craft being developed by Project Constellation, started by President George W. Bush.

But President Obama lobbed a hand grenade into Constellation, proposing its cancellation.

15-20 years from the time we start cleaning up the Nazi Socialist mess we’ve fallen into. Less than that if we just start packing democrats into impact space vehicles aimed at the moon. Then again, do we really want to pollute the moon?

Proposed nothing, Constellation is dead.

Can we send Barry and Michelle? We can tell them it’s a celebrity roast and he’ll be able to hobnob with all sorts of famous people whio wouldn’t have spit on him if he was on fire 3 years ago.

Yeah, but at least NASA is reaching out to Muslim countries!

Obamah says it is unfair that the moon is White and space-travel will not resume till a Black Hole is found.

An equally intriguing question would be, “What country will be the next to land a person on the moon”?

Ron White joked that Chinese astronauts give a whole new meaning of the word “Tang”.

One can’t say when the next landing will be but
one can say it won’t be by the US, not after Obama.

Anyone who believes that we would have been landing on the moon anytime close to 2019 and anywhere near to the planned budget is kidding themself.

I’m hoping by 2012 when we do a test shot sending BO and company to the moon.. one way of course just to see how many folks we can actually send up at one time for colonization efforts down the road!

Ron White is hysterical. I'd love to have him over for some Scotch.

In an Affirmative Action, non-judgmental, culturally-relative, lawyer-dominated, pathologically risk-averse United States?

Never.

Rumor has it a “Crescent Moon” is in our future. That’s the moon NASA is reaching for now ...

The good news is that the next moon landing will be in 2025-2030 so I will probably still be around to see it. The bad news is that unless i learn Mandarin I won't be able to understand a word of it.

The good news just keeps on rolling in.

They have also said that they want to put a man on the Moon within a decade.

This question should be directed towards other countries, China, Russia, maybe even Mexico, but not the post-Obamao America.

Ask China—The next on the moon will not be Americans that’s for sure. It will take a decade to re-build the USA to a place it was in 2000.
