What has Greece to do with anything that another country that used to be on it's current geographical location to do with that?
It's naming mishaps like this which lead to interstellar wars
I love how as soon as anything gets mentioned about effort, perserverance, difficult, the push-button generation gets all cranky and wants to call it "evil", "mean", "exploitive" (Waaah! I want my free lunch - and I want it 5 minutes ago!)

It's called the "free market" - if you don't like how you're being treated somewhere, then go someplace else. Don't expect the rest of the world to dumb itself down to your level.
And then if I point to those under them who are sweating, then you'll say that they're undeservingly lazy too... and on and on... until you've singlehandedly determined that nobody is sweating (working hard) but yourself.
That's the problem with Lefties - for them, it's "turtles all the way down" - everyone is labeled an exploiter by the Lefties except the Lefties themselves (which is the diametric opposite of reality.)
Anyway, more landers on the Moon creates more experience for future human operations on the Moon. We need a Moonbase, a lunar research station, a lunar university... a lunar Disneyland?
Will my Joulian magnets hold my Julian calendar on the wall?
So far, there's no intent to make it manned. It will be used for automated unmanned flights.
This has nothing to do with nuclear delivery systems - India has separate military-run programs for that. This is a civilian program under a civilian agency, and the technologies involved aren't the best-suited for ICBMs.
The first US Space Shuttle, the Enterprise, didn't shuttle a whole lot of stuff back and forth either. But it was meant for developmental purposes, and wasn't the final product.
I'm more interested in the TSTO, which is supposed to be built from technologies to be validated by RLV-TD. The TSTO will help to bring down cost-per-kg to orbit. Basically, it's a 2-stage launch vehicle based on a winged flyback booster. It won't be as efficient as the F9R, which doesn't carry the weight of wings, but it will be more capable of returning to launch site because of its glide path. No barge required.
This vehicle is a low-cost testbed, which will be use to validate the technologies required to build a larger vehicle: the TSTO (Two-Stage To Orbit)
The eventual holy grail is to design, build and fly an SSTO (Single-Stage to Orbit) vehicle called AVATAR which would use scramjet technology. The scramjet-to-orbit concept is considerably more difficult, and may take much longer to accomplish.
Meanwhile the TSTO would just use regular rockets (semi-cryogenic booster & fully cryogenic for upper stage). Multiple copies of the cheap RLV-TD have been built, and will test different technologies across multiple flights, including the scramjet (on a later flight).
We are canceling the space weather apocalypse!
Switch on the GlaDOS!
At least Robonaut is practical - but what's this cartoony shit for? How's that going to help conquer space?
