Selenian Boondocks has an interesting take on a one-way trip to the Moon -- that is, send people to the Moon, but in such a way that they have to use lunar material in order to make the trip back. He argues this is really the only way we'd get people back on the Moon before the end of the decade. Via Rand Simburg. I've heard these suggestion for possible Mars missions before, but not for the Moon. That's kind of odd, since it seems it would be much easier for the Moon; but I'm just a layman.
