  1. it is very important to build all satellites with hands and as well all cars with hands on top, so they can automatically repair themselves and refuel, as well improve and do many more functions. I like that.

  2. You mean like when Russia back in the early space days sent Lunokod to the moon surface? We just mimic what we did with Mars. Combination of rovers and orbital observatories, which also act as data relay back to Earth. And that will make it easier for us when we humans start setting our boots back there again

  3. Hey John; I SO Much agree with you – and – Truly, it would be so Fascinating if only the Obama Administration & the NASA Leading Board would soon solidly decide to speed up the efforts a bit, to now convince the guys who currently sits on the Financial and Budgetal needed means, to shake lose a bit and provide the NASA with Real money enough to Really Start planning on sending Manned Missions back to the Lunar Surface AGAIN & then get on with the Permanent Surface Bases needed there! GO for it!
