NASA plans to put a base on the moon by 2020

WASHINGTON — NASA plans to surpass the Apollo missions by establishing a base on the moon that could lead to a permanent human presence on the lunar surface, space agency officials said Monday.

For the first time since President Bush announced in 2004 that American astronauts would return to the moon, NASA has specified what it plans to do once there. No human has set foot on the moon since 1972. That final stay, the longest, lasted three days.

Under the plans outlined Monday, human habitation of the moon would begin in 2020 with four-person crews that would stay for a week. Visits would lengthen until astronauts could live on the base for up to six months at a stretch. This could occur as early as 2024.

This will be interesting to see once it happens in 13 years. It will be a strange thought to have that we have people living on the moon as well. I wonder what they plan to accomplish by doing that.

Thanks for posting it.

There are different ways for building Moon base. The cheaper one is to use 3D printing method but it has many disadvantages. In any cases, it is better to combine the force to have lots of useful dives to explore the possibility of Moon and Mars colonization since every country can make a contribution. For example, in the UK there is a rocket made for investigation of the earth's magnetic field called Sky Hy
