Hell Yes!

NASA to unveil plans for 2018 moon mission
The expedition would begin, these charts show, by launching the lunar lander and Earth departure stage (essentially a giant propulsion module) on a heavy-lift launch vehicle that would be lifted into orbit by five space shuttle main engines and a pair of five-segment shuttle solid rocket boosters.

Once the Earth departure stage and lunar lander are safely in orbit, NASA would launch the Crew Exploration Vehicle capsule atop a new launcher built from a four-segment shuttle solid rocket booster and an upper stage powered by a single space shuttle main engine.
Get excited! The space program is one of the things that keeps this country ahead of the curve. The new ship and launch system sounds seriously cool!

Now all that remains is to see whether NASA makes it back to the moon before some enterprising group of adventurers.
