Re: Moon Relay

If a mission is going there and there's room to get a ride on it, I'd 
say it would be a good idea to have something designed and possibly 
built to be able to jump on it.  If someone else is getting a mission 
package to the lunar surface and has power and heat available (i.e. 
somebody else's RTG to plug into!) to get through lunar nights, I'd say 
go for it.  Can't hurt.

Heard from a flight instructor:
"The only dumb question is the one you DID NOT ask, resulting in my 
going out and having to identify your bits and pieces in the midst of 
torn and twisted metal."
