Colonization of the Moon: Are there good scientific reasons for colonizing the Moon?

  • Space Colonization and Exploration

    The exploration and colonization from earth is unreasonable. The moon is the most reasonable place to do it with the technology we have now. With technology of getting off Earth, we use resources that we use that are running out at a faster rate. With the gravitation on the moon being less it would be more cost effective to launch off the moon instead of Earth.
    Also the moon has resources we can use to build there and possibly transport back to Earth or use for other space towns or countries. Also with the vacuum of space, exposed metals would be purified and exposing the metals would purify them. Making them worth more and better to use.
    Also a colony on the moon would support and give information for future space colonies. The information gathered could go to Mars or Exoplanet colonies.
    This is why I believe Moon colonies would be successful, help research, and develop technology useful for scientific goals we have set.

  • I believe the moon should be colonized

    The moon should be colonized for the fact that we are running out of space on earth for all humans to live. I am sure years ago when this idea came up they would not believe that there would be so many living humans on the planet. The scientific reasons behind it could mean that we advance our species as well and help to bring in a new era of man kind that does not require all the resources we use on earth.

  • Many reasons including science to colonize the moon

    While I do admit the cost of doing it makes this impossible for some time, however it will have huge scientific impacts when we do start colonizing the moon. The biggest scientific impact will be the study of how our society and we ourselves evolve on another planet, especially one with less gravity and no atmosphere. This work would then make it possible to colonize other planets in the long term future.

  • Unreasonable and expensive

    The moon is constantly being bombared by debris being pulled in by its gravity (1/6 of ours which causes physical trauma). Also the dust on the moon is very abrasive and hard to clean which would ruin crops and machinery, also may be toxic. Lack of atmoshphere and a medium for sound to travel makes the moon completely silent. No atmosphere=more radition. The lunar day is about 29 Earth days long, which means most places on the lunar surface receive about two weeks of daylight followed by two weeks of night. This would mess up human time lines and sleep patterns along with crops and solar energy.
