Have we forgotten about the Moon?

By | Live Shows, Season 7, Video | No Comments

We explore the idea that maybe jumping from the Earth to Mars isn’t the right idea. Our Moon is a great source of inspiration and can provide awe and wonder to people on and off planet. Should someone be focusing more heavily on a Lunar colony than a Martian one?
