Abstract

We investigated the social and technological aspects and requirements of colonizing the moon and its impacts on humanity. To this end we considered various visionary technologies for the establishment of a successful lunar base. In depth studies were performed regarding the commercial motivations, laws and consumer applications involved in a lunar base. Such a base will serve as a focal point for helium-3 mining, the detection and observation of near-Earth objects and will serve as a spaceport to the planets.
