What's your best guess as to how old you will be when another human walks on the Moon? The new crew-vehicle, which NASA has been working on, has been described as "Apollo on steroids"; looks very much like Apollo, but I think it can take 6 crew(?). It will no doubt be packed with state-of-the-art electronics (state of the art in ~2010), but the propulsion system is barely changed since Apollo.
