Time Event
One-way trip
The propulsion system just needs to be able to get to the moon and set its payload down safely. It doesn't need a separate orbiter and lander, it doesn't need to be able to lift off again, and it doesn't need to be able to make atmospheric re-entry. Of course, I don't mean to imply that getting to the moon and landing safely is easy; it's just easier than getting there and coming back would be.

The payload is a small habitat, comparable in size to a the shuttles that NASA has sent up in the past.Collapse )

I am sure this plan has flaws. Aside from the political difficulty of planning a suicide exploratory mission, what are they? You tell me.
