The Planet Moon

Part of the Springer Praxis Books book series (PRAXIS)

Abstract

The history of human exploration forecasts that, following the commissioning of the first lunar “outpost”, the entire globe of the Moon will eventually be explored, and multiple permanent human settlements will be established. The future Moon will be as comfortable and secure a place for humans to live, work, study, and play as anywhere on Earth. Its technological capability will equal that of the Earth, and our Moon will have access to the virtually unlimited energy and material resources of space.
