My hero! Think of the dangers this guy has survived!
It's a shame that Armstrong didn't live long enough to see someone land on the moon...
I think the point about there being no further moon landings is that there is no real need to conduct any more, either scientific or political. As for Mars, the technology exists but there are all manner of challenges involved, physical and psychological, in sending human beings that far. The moon landings were a matter of days, trips to the International Space Station now last a few months, but Mars would require years.
Getting them there isnt really the problem... its getting them back.
This is it... The apocalypse.
I don't see any practical point to further human adventures into space.
With so many challenges right here on the planet, the resources are better spent trying to resolve those.
The moon landing was probably more politically inspired rather than scientifically so.
Now with one established superpower, the rationale for further moon landing is dubious., imo.
I do think at some point the Chinese may wish to plant their flag on the moon.
That again would be politically inspired.

Oh I love the USA.
We are taught that the USA is like our big brother, or that Americans are like our cousins. And it's often the case with the number of families with members on both sides of the border, intermarriage etc.
Just because I personally dislike the American government and think they're a bunch of lying cheating scamming bullshitters does not mean I have any ill-will towards your average American. And neither do most Canadians.
And a good day to you, kind sir....
PS. NASA is great. What other organization could "sell" the American people $10,000 toilets seats or $5,000 bolts, for example! *oohh the mooooon*
I think everyone is forgetting the British space programme:
Oh just imagine Armstrong stepping onto the Moon, staring at the camera and saying: "Cheese".
