Great. First, The Decider announces the US will return to the moon, and build a base there, now the Russians say the same thing. The moon? Dusty, empty, dirty, useless? WTF? The moon is not on the way to Mars. We have been to the moon, we got the t-shirt.
Either both the Americans and the Russians are going moon-nuts at the same time, or they are racing to get to the monolith.
