National Park On The Moon

I’m not sure who would visit, but a bill to be presented to the House is pushing for a national historic park to be established on the moon to protect “artifacts” left on its surface during the Apollo missions.

We certainly don’t want any aliens rummaging through our “stuff” left behind. And what, exactly, has been left behind worthy of creating a national park? More than you might think!
