For many space engineers, the Space Exploration Initiative - the first President Bush's July 1989 call for a return to the moon and a voyage to Mars - was a process of rediscovery. Few knew about Apollo-era plans, so at first they opted for a costly lunar base design that helped to kill Bush's initiative. Had they known their history, however, they might have skipped right away to economical moon base plans based on designs a generation old. One such plan - put forward, alas, when it was already too late - was Boeing's 1991 Lunar Campsite.
"Never continue in a job you don't enjoy. If you're happy in what you're doing, you'll like yourself, you'll have inner peace. And if you have that, along with physical health, you will have had more success than you could possibly have imagined." -- Johnny Carson
