I'm still baffled as to why we didn't take Asimov's advice to make sure we don't leave all our eggs in one basket and set up a polar station capable of round the clock solar energy input. Even groups like Space Studies Institute have twiddled their thumbs for way too long. Given all the rich billionaires around, no wonder conspiracy nuts have been having a field day. :mad:
