Looks like NASA have chosen the SpaceX design for their return to the Moon.

 

Pulp sci-fi style rocketships to Luna - sweet!

I dreamed I saw the silver spaceships flying, in the yellow haze of the sun
There were children crying and colors flying, all around the chosen ones
All in a dream, all in a dream, the loading had begun
Flying Mother Nature's silver seed to a new home...

Have they figured out how to avoid 'rapid unscheduled disassembly' yet..?

(takes large step back from the queue..)

So they going to land now, I though the 2024 was just a fly around the moon and what's happened to the station in the orbit of the moon, then the landing.

Have Nasa been panic into a landing by the Russian/Chinese joint moonbase announcement or are they just blowing hot air as usual with no intension of doing anything.

Quite possibly!

I'm just pleased to see a revived interest in space, better than sitting around and blowing things up on the planet with stupid wars. The future really is out there... if we have a future that is. Of course the motivation behind this does concern me, the last thing I want to see is another battlefield for us to bicker over.

In the end though, any step that advances our reach for the solar system (and beyond), gets a smile out of me. 

As for this...

I hope so, though we could start taking small wagers on it...

As far as I know Space X is going to make a lunar mission with the usage of the Starship. As for me it must be rather interesting project and Space X can test Starship before sending it to Mars, however, a lot of work needs to be done with Starship and will take some time to finish this spacecraft.

If what I have seen is right then this moon ship is going to launch from the ISS, fly to the moon then do a one stage decent and landing. then take off and return to the ISS.

That's how I think it'll happen too! It's gotta refuel somewhere. Can't wait to see a pic of it stood on the Moon!

The movie? Based on one of Heinlein's "juveniles" (and he co-wrote the screenplay).

 

It was one of his "juveniles" that first got me into reading sci-fi novels, age ten.
