Moon Travel is Getting Cheaper

It only costs $10 million to go to the moon? I'll take two round trip tickets please. You know, since it's so cheap. Speaking of mining on the moon, I like the guy's quote about there being "$16 quadrillion worth of minerals" on the moon. That number seems like something he mined straight out of his ass. big grin

"The total cost from the company’s inception to the first landing on the moon is going to be under $50 million. And that means including developing everything. Going forward, the cost is going to be $10 million [per mission]. And that’s what makes it a great business," he said. Moon Express just became the first private company given permission by the U.S. government to leave the Earth’s orbit and go to the moon, representing an immense victory for mankind.
