Yep, only NASA has the cash to still live in the 1970s!

Autonomeous robots do not exist of course. Who needs a CPU with sophisticated hardware. We just ship a few astronauts, preferably not overly smart ones, for a small time to the moon for 100 billion dollar!

And if taxpayers paid for that starships development anyway - grabbing some cash from a billionaire if he wants to go to the moon is probably possible too!

What was it - 800 million dollar for an autonomeous mission to the moon?

Who wants it that cheap - then there is nothing to earn!
