Looks like America's taking trips to the moon again. Very popular in the 60's and 70's with the "space race" and thus the Cold War but we've had some of our own problems on Earth we needed to tend to-war, disease, etc.-before we could get back out there. Well, NASA has announced they've had enough with what's going on here (totally kidding) and need to research what they believe is water on the Moon. This would further prove the possibility of organisms living there, as water is essential to life, but the only way to develop that theory is to be up there on the big piece of cheese in the sky. Even better, they're sending a woman out there to get the job done. No crew members have been named yet but it'll officially be one small big step for women, one giant step for womankind.
