For those who don't know, Pres. Bush gave NASA a goal of Colonizing the Moon (Luna), in order to prepare for a manned mission to Mars. Should the United States, or Humanity in general, hold ourselves to the void of space? --User:Capercorn Talk contribs 23:18, 23 April 2008 (EDT)

Yes

I think we should. Earth (Terra) can only hold so many Humans, and we may soon reach that limit. --User:Capercorn Talk contribs 23:18, 23 April 2008 (EDT)

Yes, but a new division should be created within a international community and not within the military or even private sectors of the United States or any other country. That would lead to the eventual militarization of space, which is unneeded unless we face some massive alien threat. Hopefully it would not waste too much money that could be spent on other parts of the budget. --Mmmunchh 01:16, 11 May 2008 (EDT)

Insufficient Technology and Biological constraints

Its a nice thought but the technology hasnt been demonstrated and biological constraints make long term exposure to low gravity unlikely. A moon base would almost certainly be dependant on Earth for resupply Markr 15:42, 27 November 2008 (EST)
