By 2007? Does anyone here really think this is going to be listened to?

Sad thing is, in 10 years time people will complain about "whacky"
Scientists "predicting" a moon base back in good old '01.

In the meantime, what would be the pros and cons of a Lunar as opposed to a
Martian base? Luna would be nearer, but wouldn't Martian gravity be
better? Would we be in a situation of having to "justify" a Lunar base
like needs to be done for ISS?

"If you can't take a little bloody nose, maybe you ought to go back home and
crawl under your bed. It's not safe out here. It's wondrous, with treasures
to satiate desires both subtle and gross. But it's not for the timid."
-Q, Star Trek:TNG episode 'Q Who'
