Why I Want to Build a MoonBase

The Moon is the future anchor of the space economy. Resources like Titanium, Silicon, and Tungsten, to say nothing of Helium-3, would make a base on the Moon the perfect place to build a new generation of spacecraft for exploring the solar system.

I'm Passionate About

Space Colonization, Terraforming, Lunar Settlement, Building a Cislunar Economy, Space Defense, Geopolitics in Space.
