How would it be eisier to build spacecraft on the moon? No atmosphere and 1/6 gravity, THATS IT! We would have to pre manufacture everything on earth and then use a rocket and launch it up there so they can build it and launch it into space, Ummmmmmm hows that eisier?
I'm glad were gonna go back to the moon, but were not gonna build warehouses and everything, you have no idea of how big of an infastructure you would need to do that.

yeah screw mars lets develop the moon first and then do mars. It would be good to see a UN space command or something like that be responsible for this mission where the organization takes 1% of every nations GDP for the program. This way the moon truly belongs to the people of earth and not to any nation or a few nations.

Moon can't be colonized. Everytime it gets struck by a meteor, the whole planet has trimors.

If the moon was said to have broken of the earth when earth was taking shape, wouldn't the earth have an atmosphere of some sort.
