Default lets go back to the moon!


Quote:
Ares I rocket
In 2008, NASA passed a major hurdle on its journey back to the moon. NASA completed preliminary design review for its new Ares I rocket, which is planned to carry astronauts to the International Space Station, the moon, and out into the solar system beginning in 2015. It is the first time in more than 35 years that NASA has reached such a milestone for a rocket that will carry astronauts into space.
Ares I is a two-stage rocket configuration topped by the Orion crew vehicle and its launch abort system. It is designed to carry crews of four to six astronauts and has a 25-ton payload capacity.
This is an artist's rendition of Ares I in the vehicle assembly building at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Well, we have before. Haven't been to the moon in a long time though.

How long does it take for the space shuttle to get to the moon?

Well, soon they'll make different space shuttles, so the time to travel will vary.
