Polar Exploration… On The Moon!

National Geographic, amongst others, are reporting that NASA has announced plans to build a base at one of the moon’s poles. The base will be solar powered, and is scheduled to be permanently staffed by 2024. By 2025 someone will announce the first solo, unsupported trek to either the North or South Lunar Pole I’m sure. Odds are, right now, that that person will be British.

With tourists going into space soon, and a permanent base on the moon announced, how long before I’m blogging on adventures from space? Or IS space the next big adventure? I can just see reports of summit bids on Mount Olympus on Mars, which for the record stands 15 Miles high. I’m guessing it won’t be done without bottled oxygen.
