I dont know how accurate the article is but c'mon - too tricky? Apparently we landed on the moon over 50 years ago - so in 50 years of advanced technology theyre saying it may be too tricky to land on the moon south pole? I'm sorry NASA but I really find that hard to believe. Re-landing at an Apollo mission area will just give more fuel to conspiracy theorists probably saying you couldnt bother building another "moon" scene set. I was hoping to be alive to see man set foot on Mars but I doubt that will happen. Maybe you should watch JFK rice university lecture again - why do we go to the moon? Maybe apply some boldness to your missions than always playing safe. Look at what SpaceX has done in their short time. OK - rant off.
