Now if we can spend about eighty million bucks to literally -- or rocketed to the moon.
What does that really say about the state of NASA and -- Buzz Aldrin the second man at Guantanamo since today's mission was absolutely worth.
I know that we're interested in either.
Criticizing something for -- over expenditure or were not financing something enough where somebody is doing something wrong.
This happens to be.
Over hyped by some people who said we were bombing the moon other people said we're firing a missile.
Because that's militaristic and -- stirs up people into -- and -- -- thinking and if we say we've wasted money on something that -- even more people up into being anti space.
But last week's -- still rocket into the moon.
-- -- you know OK so they'll let you know I know I asked him I'm just wondering.
We spend money to crash a rocket into the -- excellence absolutely and you had -- today.
Because it was the upper stage rocket which is going to be jettisoned somewhere anyway.
When it hits the moon at a at a very sensitive place.
In a dark.
Shadowed crater that is.
If for comment has impacted the moon the ice from the comment will have spread.
Who frost or snowflakes.
Or to others around that's.
H two -- so as we're looking for right we're looking for evidence of water having once been.
On the moon or in this case still -- just under the surface.
Well we we have been.
For 35 years or forty years but we've been looking to justified that supposition.
In the form frost or ice should exist.
From impacts of comments.
-- and the always shadowed portion.
The craters at the poll.
That where the sun is very low on the horizon.
And certain parts of craters are always -- it.
Now to verify.
This mission was planned.
A Hurley mission from looking at certain other properties of the moon right hand as it approached determination.
Of the mission.
It would take.
Two portions of the spacecraft.
And very carefully.
Navigate them so that.
That's as I am trying to work out but but I love you dearly UR zero I grew up worshipping you forty years ago you you you'll -- walk on the moon.
Now you can't tell me buzz you would envision the day forty years later.
When NASA the same folks who put you on the moon and made human history would be going back.
Just -- a racquet into the surface looking for water.
This is a scientific.
Other satellites with sensors on them have detected not only the presence of hydrogen.
In the in -- -- expected areas.
Total darkness and a shadow over creator.
But David suspect they've detected the presence of a different variety.
Molecules that are probably from this solar wind and that I had high velocity and -- -- time.
Tackling everything you're saying you're seeing it for us what would you do this -- -- -- all the things he wanted to see NASA do.
Right we're on the list of things to do for NASA.
Would this be any news talked about going out to the heavens and manager -- Mars and on the way out we're doing us any.
Don't get me wrong I -- I do not believe American astronaut should go back to the moon.
I believe that the experience.
That we -- United States have.
Forty years ago and the experience have the last four or five years planning on Constellation Program.
Two to go to the moon by Friday -- -- -- with US astronauts.
And two prepare.
By going to the moon.
Four periods of time.
To -- prepared to go to bars I think that that is an erroneous.
