Let's hear it for progress. We all know that the International Space Station has a 'best before' date. That date is pretty soon. So what's next? Well ESA really wants a Lunar Village. They're so keen that they've funded Airbus for the design of PILOT, the precise and intelligent landing using on-board technologies to put logistics on the Moon. And what might the logistics be? Well, Canadensys, based in Bolton Ontario is the prime contractor for the ILOAs flagship mission. Hmmm, would you like an observatory there?
