I've got a DNS server that's running on a Pentium-83 overdrive CPU in a 486/VLB mobo, with 32MB of RAM on 30-pin SIMMs. It connects to the network with a WD8013 10Mb Ethernet card, and 10base-2 cable. Disk? WD Caviar 340MB, baby. It's been serving DNS 24/7/365 for I can't even remember how many years straight (total downtime on the order of a day or two in several years), and still is doing so right now.

NASA Associate Administrator Scott Horowitz said the goal is to conduct the first manned missions to the moon by 2020, starting with short stays by four-person crews that would establish the outpost.

He estimated that perhaps by 2024 there might be a continual presence on the surface, with crews rotating in and out, as is done with the international space station.
