Taking into account its size, the sun will live to be roughly 12.3 billion years old. We will test and calibrate all of the instrument capabilities by observing representative science targets. Your weight stays exactly the same but it is just handled differently with lower gravity. By 1972, with the United States mired in an unpopular war in Vietnam, the public's willingness to fund any more forays, whether to the Moon or southeast Asia, had been exhausted.
