im just not buying the lack of funds as reason for there being no futher explorations of the moon
The cost for the Apollo series of missions ran into the billions of dollars even 40 years ago. In today's money it would be hundreds of billions.
What is the point of further exploring the moon? There aren't any natural resources like oil and gas and even if there were we would have no way of bringing them back to Earth. It's not like you could just build a pipeline to the moon.
