Space is vast, and even the nearby moon has roughly the same surface area as the continent of Asia. There are already plans to use the moon to store copies of the world’s religious texts, but what else could we use it for?
Man began exploring space decades ago, and since then men have even walked on the moon. There are currently humans living on the space station high in orbit above the earth, so the idea of space missions are nothing new to mankind.
The next step is making travel to the moon a regular thing. There are many possibilities that could arise from this, including a lunar colony. It could be powered by solar energy collected from the light side of the moon, and this same solar power could provide power to a spaceship recharging station.
