Private Flights to the Moon in 2020s

Pete Wooden, director of the NASA Ames Research station in California, while speaking in London yesterday said NASA should get people back to the Moon by 2020. But he also said "I think (private interests ) are going to beat us to the lunar surface." Adding to that he said, "It's NASA's unstated policy that the moon is available for economic activity,"

From his mouth to our hands.

That is great to hear, although unless someone can bring down those launch costs, we ain't going anywhere (unless Google decides to back the project that is).
