The Moon is an essential stepping-stone to the rest of the universe. It represents a unique opportunity to learn from our closest neighbor, and the ideal environment to provide the training and experience that furthers humanity’s exploration and presence in the solar system and beyond.

The idea is to colonize the craters on the south pole of the moon by drilling into the crater walls that provides a greater protection from meteoroids and radiation.

Building a base on the moon could theoretically be made much simpler by using a 3D printer to construct it from local materials.
