Continued Lunar Space Exploration

The Apollo Missions barely scratched the surface of scientific lunar exploration. There is still much to be learned. Also, positioning telescope arrays in lunar nighttime darkness would greatly expand mankind’s learning in astronomy.

Earth-like planets in other solar systems most likely will be discovered. The view of outer space would be much better than that of the Hubble Space Telescope.

Wonders of God's Creations

When we view NASA space scenes on the Moon and planets, we are not looking at NASA's work. We are viewing the wonder of God's creations, provided For The Benefit Of All Mankind. Watching astronauts exploring is almost as good as being there. With advancing space transportation breakthroughs, public space tourism, at an affordable cost to the general public, might be possible in the future.

Former University of Utah President, and LDS Church leader, John A. Widtsoe, stated the following in the year 1926:

"Whoever teaches that any part of the Universe is not for the benefit of man is in error”.
From: A Rational Theology; As Taught by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints; by Elder John A. Widtsoe, Of the Council of the Twelve Apostles; Published by the General Boards of the Mutual Improvement Associations; 1926; Published by Deseret Book Company, Salt Lake City, 1926. Pages 156 to 157.
