Gingrich wants Moon Colony by 2020

| No Comments

Newt Gingrich promised a moon colony by the end of his second term if he is elected president according to the Star Tribune.

Gingrich, speaking to a crowd of over 500 along Florida's Space Coast on Wednesday, stressed his desire for more missions to the moon, mars and beyond.

Gingrich told the crowd "We want Americans to think bolder about space and rebuild the country we love" reports the Washington Post.

As for paying for the explorations, Gingrich wants to set aside 10 percent of NASA's budget in order to give prizes for innovations that bring about these explorations. These space missions will also bring many commercial interests, said Gingrich. Other than that, not much was said about how the missions would be paid for.
