Re: I would like to see the aims of the experiment.

Old school science.. try something, see if it works

if it works, hooray, try something harder. (actually, try it again, several times, because being right is IMPORTANT)

if it doesnt, figure out why the hell not.

The location and media attention on the other hand, would be political grandstanding.

Thats why the Yanks went to the moon, and if they have lost their mojo then its a good thing somebody else has taken up the job.
