The venture has been considered by Britain's astronomy funding agency, PParc, and has been presented to European partners.

The concept is the work of a consortium of space interests, including Surrey Satellite Technology Limited (SSTL).

SSTL's founder and chief executive, Professor Sir Martin Sweeting, says the costs of space exploration have fallen sufficiently for the UK to think about leading such a mission, which could be at the Moon by 2010.

Looks good, I hope we do it. Id rather we wasted money on pretty pointless space exploration missions then killing Iraqi's and the like.

I enjoy the fact people are going to the moon for the simple reason that they can study more about visiting another planet from it i.e setting up a base station and other methods that would yield great opportunitys that could benifit mankinds attempts at populating Mars.
