Our project examined the feasibility of establishing a lunar outpost. This included analysis of Earth to moon transportation, sustainability, uses for the moon, and the potential effects on humanity. We determined that the moon is a viable option for private companies to explore due to the opportunities in establishing life-supporting systems, harvesting fuel for alternative energy, and experimental studies. The lunar outpost would have its greatest effect on humanity by providing alternative energy sources and detection of near earth objects.
