“Nuh-uh,” he answered.

The assertion continued: “Now we have a whole lot of kilos of Moon rocks saved there, and the Apollo mission management. Throughout his go to, he can see first-hand what we did 50 years in the past, in addition to what we’re doing now to return to the Moon within the coming years, however this time to remain.”
