International Lunar Decade Begins In 2007? Authentic NASA Toys and Replicas
The Planetary society is attempting to keep the vision of lunar exploration alive by calling for an international lunar decade set to begin next year in 2007.

(Moon Today) The Moon is "hot." China, India, Japan, Italy and the United States are all currently planning lunar missions, and the European Space Agency has the SMART-1 spacecraft in orbit there right now.

"The Moon is the first step beyond low Earth orbit for any space-faring nation," stated Louis Friedman, Executive Director of The Planetary Society, "and the next decade will see a number of nations taking that step."

With all that is going around in the world (ranging from bird flu to world war three via Iran) keeping the world community focused on lunar exploration is not only key, but a priority. Although the decade technically extends to 2019, (making it twelve years) it coincides with the presumed future landing on the moon.

You can either visit the stars or watch them from afar.

But if you choose the former, you'll definitely get a better view.
