Canadians On The Moon - It's A Great Adventure Story

Canada could be sending its first astronaut to the moon under an ambitious long-term plan being developed by a group of space agencies around the world.

A return to the moon within the next two decades is part of the recently updated Global Exploration Roadmap — a far-reaching plan developed by more than a dozen space agencies.
Canada is among the 14 space agencies participating in the International Space Exploration Coordination Group, which first started developing the strategy in 2007. The first roadmap was released in 2011 and the latest update was made public last week.

Could you imagine. Chris Hatfield stepping on the surface of the moon? Planting the maple leaf? It makes my heart skip a beat just to think about it. Now THERE is a project worthy of Canada's blood and treasure. Let's be an example and move this fucking species a little forward and keep hope from slipping into the abyss. Make this happen people. I don't want to have to tell you again.
