Now, everyone knows I love me some good ol’fashioned space exploration, be it manned or robotic. However, there’s just something strange about the whole “moonbase” plan being touted by Presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich lately. Just seems a little too much like the plotting of a James Bond villain/Dr. Evil-type. He probably would want to hire all of those poor inner-city kids to help construct it – you know, save the taxpayers some money – once he ends those pesky child labor laws.
