Establishing a Permanent Moon Base (Luna Base) would be a challenging task. The first step in building a Luna Base would be to set up Habitats and Laboratories. They probably would be modified Space Station Modules.


Possible uses for a Moon Base are: Outpost for astronomical studies, Stepping Stone to the Planets, an Abundant source of Raw Materials and Space Tourism.

NASA Moonbase

In 2006 NASA announced plans to construct a solar-powered outpost at one the moon's poles. The lunar base is expected to be permanently staffed by 2024. The outpost concept was chosen over a competing strategy similar to the 1960s and '70s Apollo program—a series of brief trips to the moon.

The moon base will allow for sustained human presence on the moon's surface and help the agency prepare for future missions to Mars and beyond. The announcement was part of NASA's congressionally mandated strategy to meet U.S. President George W. Bush's "Vision for U.S. Space Exploration," a plan outlined in 2004.

The Bush plan includes returning humans to the moon no later than 2020. The goal is to take advantage of the moon's resources and to establish a launching point for further explorations.

When will we build a Moonbase?

The logical step after the International Space Station (ISS) will be to develop a Luna Base (Moonbase). Will this happen? Who know?

Time is running out-we are all getting OLDER! So if you read this, email NASA and spread the word. We need Action! Governments seem to lack the will.

An Idea?

We need to start designing Moon Base modules on the cheap! Countries such as the USA can design modules and pay Russian companies to build them.
