Bush said yes, or maybe he said maybe. We assess the message, and the tech that will be required if the nation really gets behind an ambitious moon program.

A 10-foot-long moon buggy is parked in the Taurus-Littrow Valley, roughly 239,000 miles from Earth. Nobody has driven this lunar rover in the past 31 years, but because the Moon has no liquid water and only the thinnest of atmospheres, the vehicle is probably as good as new—a set of fresh batteries would get it running again.
