Maybe the Transformers were right when they tried to warn us about the Dark Side of the Moon. Perhaps even Pink Floyd is already there waiting for us. These days it seems more and more people are making plans for the moon than ever before. The United States is planning to have a moon base by the year 2020. Now there is talk of a European moon village by the year 2030. The moon must have some pretty precious resources on it or perhaps it’s just one hell of a view.
Human beings after all have been a sucker for the perfect view for generations. I can’t wait for the first dum dum to fall off the moon trying to take a selfie. 5 – 15 years for a moon colony though? It seems a short time to have the moon colonized and people living on it. That is unless people are already living on it. Many individuals say this is exactly the case. Lunar colonies have already been established and have been playing vital roles as a stopping point 4 trips to and from the planet Mars.
Without the lunar station on the moon refueling and resupplying would be much more difficult. Ralph Kramden from the honeymooners sure knew what he was talking about when he said one of these days to the moon!
