Lunar Homesteads just won’t be possible if we can’t find a way for them to be profitable. Homesteaders will need money to buy the stuff they can’t make themselves. They’ll have to pay for their transportation to Luna and for their initial equipment. They’ll need to be part of the cis-Lunar economy if they want to survive. We can have all the technology we need but money will make or break Lunar Homesteading.
