To the Moon

Nasa is out at the sand dunes in Moses Lake. They are preparing to send astronauts to the moon by 2020 to build a lunar outpost. They have been out testing vehicles. Scott and Chris went for a Sunday drive to check it out. They took some pictures. They were hoping to see the astronauts in their space suits as they had them on for a previous training day but they weren't suited up on Sunday. Moses Lake was selected because the sandy surface in Grant County is very similar to the lunar surface.

There's sagebrush and apple trees on the moon? Sweet! I want lunar apples. Doesn't that sound like such a treat?
