Report: NASA Eyes Moon for Future Space Base
NASA is reportedly mulling the construction of a floating Moon base that would serve as a launching site for manned missions to Mars and other destinations more distant than any humans have traveled to so far.
The Orlando Sentinel reported over the weekend that the proposed outpost, called a "gateway spacecraft," would support "a small astronaut crew and function as a staging area for future missions to the moon and Mars."
The newspaper cited documents it obtained pertaining to a White House briefing on the idea given by NASA administrator Charles Bolden earlier in September. The Sentinel noted that it was "unclear" whether the Obama administration supported the project.
