We Need Housing on the Moon

NASA intends to land a man and a woman on the moon by 2024. This time not just to plant flags and footprints, but to stay. However, there’s a fly in NASA’s ointment. There is no place to stay on the moon. No nice, comfy housing. There’s no construction equipment to build that housing and to bury it so it’s safe from radiation. There’s no means to produce water and oxygen. There’s no greenhouse garden to produce food.
The Space Development Steering Committee, a group of space experts founded in 2005 at the urging of Buzz Aldrin, proposes a solution. NASA currently spends three billion dollars a year on a rocket called the Space Launch System and a crew capsule called the Orion. Both of these will be obsolete before they are ever launched. The Space Development Steering Committee proposes terminating these programs and putting the money into developing space infrastructure. Specifically,
• Power generation equipment—solar and small-scale nuclear;
Why? No one but NASA is prepared to invest the money for these necessities.
And capable of housing its passengers in space and on the surface of the moon in cruise-liner comfort.
NASA’s Space Launch System cannot land on the moon. Nor can NASA’s Orion. A moon program that depends on these two vehicles cannot reach the surface of the moon.
In other words, NASA will soon be able to buy tickets to the moon on the SpaceX Starship. Which is why NASA needs to let private industry get us to the moon and has to put its money into something private industry cannot deliver—power generation, construction equipment, housing, ice-harvesting, and lunar farming.
The Space Development Steering Committee was founded by Howard Bloom in 2005 at the urging of Buzz Aldrin. The SDSC is an expert group with members from NASA, the National Science Foundation, Northrop Grumman, and the National Space Society. Bloom is a scientific thinker and the author of seven books, including the new Einstein, Michael Jackson & Me: a Search for Soul in the Power Pits of Rock and Roll.
