Would you go and live on the moon?

If you were given the opportunity to become a test group of people to start living life on the moon, would you go ahead and board the rocket?


I have always wondered why they havent built a massive glass tank and then started taking plants up there and creating a new eco system.


So, would you be willing to go?



Can you see yourself living on another planet some day?

Re: Would you go and live on the moon?

I would go, though It would probably just be my ashes at this stage. At least I could feel that I had been useful even if it was only to bulk up the growing medium that would be needed to a grow something useful.

As a young, fit and single man, I would have gone in a flash. These days I have responsibilities. Iíd go as a tourist, once itís reasonably safe, but my pioneering days are long past!

Because itís very expensive and also difficult, as this recent experiment shows:

No, because we wonít be living on other planets in my lifetime. Thatís not to say there wonít be outposts on the moon and Mars within the next 20 years; I think there will be. But they will be living there only in the same sense anyone lives in Antarctica. Strictly for research and by appointment only. Properly living on other planets entails people being free to emigrate and set up a home and a livelihood there. Once pioneer emigration is the decision of private citizens rather than at the invitation of governments or mega-corporations, then people will begin to really Ďliveí on Mars. I think weíre many decades away from that.

Re: Would you go and live on the moon?

My answer is a definite no. I might be prepared to visit (I definitely would have when younger) but to live? No, I'd be bored stiff after a few days.

Did you know they don't even have broadband up there?

We need to find a habitable planet to live on, but as time goes on, this appears to be less, rather than more likely. We haven't even found one yet and when we do, it'll probably take multiple lifetimes to get there.

I was put off when they said it lacked atmosphere.

I would love to go on and live on the moon. If you would like a flavour of what it is like then you should watch For All Mankind.

No, my allotment wouldn't work out very well on the Moon and Sainsburys don't deliver.
