A Space Station on the Moon?

We now have another report that they have found water on the moon. Not just a little water, but a lot. NASA spokesmen used the term, "significant," when describing the water content.

This discovery came about when the Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite, or LCROSS, intentionally crashed October 9 into the permanently shadowed region of Cabeus crater near the moon's south pole.

After the bombing, a rocket flew through the aftermath of the event, and measured the water content. Other data was also collected during the 79 million dollar mission.

"The discovery opens a new chapter in our understanding of the moon," the space agency said in a written statement shortly after a recent briefing.

The new chapter alluded to is a space station on the moon. Now, here is the question - Do we need a space station at the moon, and are these big ticket missions worth the huge price we tax payers render? Weigh in, and tell us what you think.
