ESA’s Moon colony – Setting up a Lunar base


I hear about the only person around it
doesn’t have TV coverage of the face and then they got the black up now you’re
gonna be the one getting a TV picture is still yet we are getting a TV picture 10 dialing living and working on the moon may sound
like science fiction but the head of the european space agency wants to make this
ambitious idea a reality a permanent lunar base or as he calls it a moon
village but unlike any village you might find on earth in the morn village we
would like to combine the capabilities of different spacefaring nations bead
robotic or being a human to look also for different activities be at pure
science is a bit auto business even tourism or mining or whatever to put
them together on the same place and this is the idea of the Moon village it’s been almost 50 years since man
first walked on the lunar surface and the end of the Apollo program but now
for many people a permanent basis the next logical step following the
cooperation of countries from all over the world for the International Space
Station one key thought is to use the moon’s own natural resources to build
and sustain a base its water ice metals and minerals using
its own materials to 3d print a structure or building element a rover
could land on the surface inflated dough and the roads could begin to construct a
building to protect the astronauts and while the moon village is a big project
you can start small the advantage of the idea of more
village is that we don’t need a big amount of funding at the beginning we
don’t have to be fine everything and just to say okay we build a big
structure the idea is that the different actors the different players worldwide
they look in their special capabilities in their special interest and they bring
just their part into the idea that means we can start with a small ending mission
which many countries are already planning up to of huge investment for
instance for some telescope radio telescope on the far side of the Moon so
it’s it’s a multiple users by multiple users but a single place but there are hazards to consider such
as solar and cosmic radiation micro meteorites and extreme temperatures and
so the Easter director-general believes that areas near the poles are in
constant daylight would be the most suitable on the far side of the Moon we
have places on moon which are at least especially at the South Pole which has
permanent darkness where we can find water and we know from some missions
that there is water what is a good sauce to produce hydrogen
and oxygen and also to go into the shadow of the moon we will have places
where we had we don’t have the radiation coming from theirs so building a
telescope over there by using the material find on the moon so not
bringing all the stuff on mirrors that could also open new possibilities to
look deep into our universe the idea is that the moon base would be
a global project a natural new step emulating how the international space
station works we have more than 60 spacefaring nations around our world and
the Americans on our saying journey to Mars and i totally agree that it’s right humans will go to Mars at one day but
this is a little bit far away in the future so also the Americans are
interested in the moon so it will be the Americans it will be the Russians it
really is a Chinese it will be the Indians the Japanese and even more
countries were with smaller contribution so my hope is that we will really have a
really clovelly exploration scheme on the moon ahead of pieces commitment to a
moon village sends a powerful message although it could be 20 years before the
technology is ready to make it happen but as more nations plan to return to
the moon the need for a permanent base will grow
and Europe could be at the heart of the next giant leap for humankind history about the only person around it
doesn’t have TV coverage of the page and find it man you got the black up now and
you’re gonna be getting a TV picture now they’ll yes we are getting a TV picture
village announced one
