so far NASA are the only ones to have put someone on the moonWhat have they done for the world lately? :-)
As in, say, the last 30++ years? :-(
Going to the moon isn't that big a problem, anymore. Just expensive -- and not a big status thing, since it's already been done.
(Well, OK, for NASA of today it would be a big problem. :-( Unless they get vitalized when they don't have a shuttle to protect.)
