    It takes ALLOT of power to run large microwave Transmitters on the moon. So where does that power come from ?
    The solar panels of course.

    Its a foolish and ridiculous idea and I guarantee it will never be built.

    The green energy movement is responsible for allot of waste, bad ideas and dead Bald Eagles, so I wouldn't be surprised if they managed to attempt that on a small scale with a satelite.

    Around the moon ? Never.

    Nasa to build permanent moon base



    Nasa has announced plans to build a permanent base on the moon by 2024 - raising the prospect of a manned space flight to Mars.

    The ambitious proposals signal the next phase of space exploration after the agency's space shuttles are retired in 2010 and marks a radical departure from previous short trips to the moon.

    The international base will be permanently staffed by 2024, four years after astronauts land on the moon to begin assembly.

    Once complete, astronauts from the US and other nations will spend up to six months on the base at any one time.

    Nasa said the two key reasons for establishing a base were to prepare for a manned mission to Mars - and ultimately the expansion of human civilisation to other planets. The project is likely to cost hundreds of billions of dollars and involve Nasa partners in Europe, Russia and Japan, although China's participation is unlikely.

    "This is not a flag-and-footprints. This is the idea of starting an outward movement that includes long stays on the moon," said John Logsdon, the director of the Space Policy Institute at George Washington University.

    The first step in establishing the base will be a new generation of lunar spaceships, which will undergo tests from 2009.

    Manned flights will begin in 2014 and astronauts will land on the moon - for the first time since the Apollo mission of 1972 - in 2020.....snip~

    Lets not forget Russia has already proposed of putting a colony on the moon too.
    Good Morning MMC, there is nothing sadder than an important federal agency needing to look for private money because the President killed it.

    Space exploration is important for the country if for nothing else to keep other rival countries from advancing ahead of us. We need to know what everybody is doing up there so there is no surprises later.

    I hope when people talk about Obamas legacy killing the space program is on the top of the list.

    Kennedy started the program and Obama killed it.

    Kennedy would not be very happy with Obama for that.

    Such a plan would cost money, no doubt, but the scientific advances would overshadow any expenditure and make the project a winner.

    Maybe if China does advance to the point that they could be a credible competitor in the space race, the way the Soviet Union once was, moon bases and missions to Mars will be come a reality.

    We should have never signed the treaty. Especially back then.


    An Army Base on the Moon

    What Might Have Been: Project Horizon Was an Idea Whose Time Never Came



    a lunar outpost … is of critical importance to the U.S. Army of the future.” It was March 1959, and Army Lt. Gen. Arthur G. Trudeau, the author of those words, was tasking the Army’s chief of ordnance to develop a proposal for a “manned lunar outpost” that would “protect potential United States interests on the moon.” The story behind this secret study (called “Project Horizon”) and the plan to have an Army base on the moon by 1966, is the story of a great idea whose time has never come.

    The plan was to build a self-sustained moon base that would serve as an outpost for exploration of the moon, and further exploration of space. The base – which would house 10-20 personnel – would be the “first permanent manned installation on the moon” and, perhaps most importantly, would provide a platform for the Army, if required, to conduct “military operations on the moon.”

    The Army insisted that there were no known technical barriers to establishing a manned lunar base and believed that Project Horizon “should be a special project having authority and priority similar to the Manhattan Project in World War II.” After all, if America had built the atomic bomb, there was no reason that it could not put a handful of soldiers on the moon. Project Horizon contemplated using the multistage Saturn II rocket, then under actual development, and intermediate orbiting space stations (then only on drawing boards) to ferry construction materials to the moon. The Army concluded that seventy-five Saturn II rocket launches could be achieved by the end of 1964 – with forty of these launches needed to put sufficient Project Horizon equipment into orbit for the lunar base’s construction.



    Known formally as the “Treaty on Principles Governing the Activities of States in the Exploration and Use of Outer Space, including the Moon and Other Celestial Bodies,” this international agreement limited the use of the moon to peaceful purposes. In short, the militarization of the moon was no longer an option – and remains an impossibility since this international treaty is still in effect.....snip~

    Heya DH .....We had a video up with and some links on the mining and water with the moon. The Video was on colonizing.

    Yeah, the EPA is all wrong and China has the right idea with their pollution.
