    Because a lot of getting to the moon in the late 60's / early 70's was politically motivated.

    Plus now its too costly and not that high on the list of priorities.

    The last lunar landing was in December 1972. But anyway, it's really expensive. NASA was planning to go with its "Constellation" program but it was cancelled not long ago They need to set up a lunar base to be honest, it would be a much more cost effective way of discovering more about long term travel in space, in the long run at least.
