How Lawmakers Plan to Turn the Moon Into a National Park
Two Democratic lawmakers are proposing an act of lunar proportions. That is, they want to turn the lunar landing site into a national park.
The act would protect the landing sites of Apollos 11 through 17, as well as the artifacts left behind on those space missions, such as lunar landers, the iconic American flag, and even the golf balls hit on the moon's surface.
The reason for the sudden proposal? Anticipation of an increase in future commercial lunar landings. The act would also create a Visitor Services and Administrative Offices location, which would be in "reasonable proximity" to the moon.
We would appreciate it if someone would define "reasonable."
