Lunar Homesteading is a new concept for most people. We’ve been conditioned to think of Luna (the Moon to most people) as a lethal place that only major governments can visit. Sure, in science fiction humans are like weeds. We can survive anywhere in the solar system. But we’re told that in the “real world” it will take billions (or trillions) of dollars and years (or decades) to create long-duration bases (or outposts) on the Lunar surface. And so it seems because it has been a LONG time since humans have even visited Luna.
I don’t think that has to be the case. In this section I’ll try to lay out my ideas as simply and logically as I can. Let me know what you think.
