Yes Dave, the launch and return of the boosters was very impressive. Don't forget, Starman is still cruising around up there in his Tesla, about 600,000,000 miles in just over a year.

I found it to be very cool, and it has a futuristic look to it...feels as though the tech being developed by SpaceX will become more and more important in the decades to come.... this almost makes me have a positive opinion of Elon Musk.

I recently watched an episode of StarTalk hosted by Neil deGrasse Tyson where they discussed why we never went back. It seems that it was because of Nixon not being a fan of spending money on space research. Many proposals were presented but his head of NASA rejected them all. After that the will to go back was just never there.

Haven’t seen the referenced show, the reasoning certainly sounds plausible. Lot going on at that point in our country.

I believe this is the episode. It may have been one of the others.
