Nowadays, if you’re an astronaut, you can fly to the Moon and hop around in a protective suit. If I went to the Moon, I’d have to be younger and stronger to withstand the rocket’s G-force. Where would I stay once I got there?
Housing would be a problem. I’d have to wait another century for them to build habitats. The scientists say they want to cover a crater with a shield and build housing inside a dome. How will they make oxygen to breathe? Where will the food come from or will Earth ship food to us until we can grow our own?
How much would the trip and boarding cost me? What kind of clothing would I wear? So much to think about.
Well, I’ll tell you this, I’m glad I’m at the age I am. I really don’t want to go to the Moon. I rather look up at it on a summer day and admire the rabbit features an American Indian once told me. She said the god wanted to protect the rabbit from the coyote, so he threw the rabbit up to the Moon. If you cock your head to the right side, you can see the outline of a rabbit. From Earth, I can see the Moon turn red and gold colors in the fall. If I went to the Moon, I’d never see all that.(c)A.Nation2019
