Artemis has been floating around in the SciFi world as a name for the successor for a while.

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!

If at first you don't succeed... UK space launch: Historic Cornwall rocket launch ends in failure

And, in other UK space-related news: Welcome to the latest edition of the Joe Stalin Show!

Well, it's not rocket science. That's easy. It is rocket engineering that is hard.

The rocket equation is about 200 years old and was widely known over a century ago; it, orbital mechanics, and celestial navigation would have been easily understood by Newton.
