Grumpy old fart.

Anyone have a spare $750M they could loan me?

I finally found a reason to accumulate a lot of wealth (only 1.5B for a party of two).

Boulder company to offer trips to the moon

http://www.dailycamera.com/news/ci_22139059/boulder-company-offer-trips-moon

A Boulder-based company led by a roster of former NASA executives on Thursday announced plans for a privately funded effort to send humans to the moon by 2020.

The Golden Spike Co. is attempting to create a turnkey model for a "reliable and affordable" lunar transport system. The company expects to serve nations or individuals with interests ranging from scientific research and resource mining to national or personal prestige.

...

The announcement coincides with the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 17 launch, the last human flight to the Moon or any human destination outside of low-Earth orbit.



Oh nuts, later on it says:

As for supporters and investors, Golden Spike has an advisory board packed with credentials in space, technology, journalism, film and politics, including former speaker of the House and candidate for U.S. President, Newt Gingrich.


And here I thought they had some serious credibility going for them. Oh well.
