+ - Send The ISS To The Moon ->

Submitted by jmichaelg
jmichaelg writes: Michael Benson is suggesting that NASA send the International Space Station to the moon instead of leaving it low earth orbit. He points out that it's already designed to be periodically moved to higher orbits so instead of just boosting it a few miles, strap on some ion engines and put it in orbit around the moon instead of the earth. That would provide an initial base for the astronauts going to the moon and give the ISS a purpose other than studying the effect of micro gravity on humans.
