I thank my opponent for instigating this debate. Before beginning, however, I would like to remind voters that my opponent has not produced any argument whatsoever for this debate; therefore, in order to win I must provide a single argument as to why the Moon is better (or equal to) the Sun.

1. It is possible to colonize the Moon.

Now, while people may disagree with this statement, do you not think that it is more likely we would colonize the Moon (or even Mars) compared to the Sun? After all, it would be nearly impossible for us to colonize the Sun, considering the extreme intense heat that would burn us to a crisp; however, it is possible that we may colonize the Moon. One reason is that astronauts have discovered water on the Moon, which in turn will increase our chances of living there. This water can also be used as rocket fuel:

"Having that store of water on the moon could be a boon to possible future lunar camps. In addition to a source of drinking water, lunar water ice could be broken into its constituent hydrogen and oxygen atoms, ultimately to be used in rocket fuel." [1]

Let's not forget that the Moon is way closer to the Earth than the Sun is, which would mean that we can transport items and supplies in a much more efficient way.

Conclusion-

I know this was short, but I believe that the one argument I provided is sufficient enough to win me this debate. Anyways, my point is that it is easier to colonize the Moon, but it is not possible to colonize the Sun.

Thank you.

It is actually impossible to colonize the moon because it has no atmosphere. PRO could actually have won this debate if she tried.
