Walking of the Moon -- on Earth? new
      #5737061 - 03/16/13 07:59 PM

Since we have amusement parks all over the place, I was wondering if someone has thought of making a full-size replica of a lunar feature to two, like Copernicus or something smaller like Rupes Recta so Moon lovers like us can see and experience part of the Moon first hand. It would put things in perspective - and be fun (without the gov't building it, though). I know we have Barringer Crater already and we have plenty of Desert to build. We could take up a fund. Since I won't fly and can't afford to drive, I will never see it, but others can.
