also elon might add some laser guns might be developed and attached onto starship for the funzies( to destroy/ break meteors into smaller parts) Finally a use for weapons that is not killing your own species. There are other uses like nuking mars' poles but thats off topic.
Ambist Vor Tag
it might even be less reflective of light from the shear amount of solar panels or as they also said about new technologies being developed, there could be glass that can prevent large amounts of radiation from the sun in the future. This could mean the light from those cities could reach earth. also i dread the thought of mining on the moon for the not so rational reason that in the movie time machine they mine the moon and it collapses to cause choas on earth
At least it could be a little more brighter at night if the cities light reflects to earth.

The Moon makes a great testing ground for a future Mars colony since we will face similar issues either way, especially with the lack of an atmosphere, lack of gravity, potentially toxic dust, and large amounts of radiation. If something goes wrong on the Moon, we can respond much faster.

@Dodgy Dodgson “Not exactly true” as you list how what he wrote is exactly true. It’s SIMILAR he wrote. He didn’t say it was exactly the same. Who even thinks going to the moon would be exactly like going to Mars? No one. Who thinks going to the moon will be similar to going to Mars? Everyone.
Dodgy Dodgson
Dodgy Dodgson Vor 4 Monate
Not exactly true. There are significant differences in the challenges we face. For one. Mars has periods (sometimes lasting months) of essentially no sunlight due to storms. The dust buildup on Mars would be significantly more treacherous. Mars also has many more toxic elements. Getting colonists to mars (just getting there alone) is a monumentally difficult task. Even just disembarking the space craft could be nearly impossible. Then there's the fact that neither of those colonies are likely to ever be self-sufficient. Reliant on Earth for shipments of fuels, parts, nitrogen for growing plants etc. Mars would be considerably more difficult than the Moon. If we consider that creating a colony on the Moon is difficult. Then Mars by comparison is close to impossible. Improbable at best and impossible at worst. And don't be trusting what the likes of Elon Musk say about Mars. He's probably the most clueless one there is.

@Nova Typhoon it is. Every living being manipulates the environment, we’re not the only ones. It’s true that, as the species that can cause the most radical changes on Earth, we specially ought to be careful with what we do, but although what we do is on a larger scale, it’s not fundamentally different from autotrophs filling the atmosphere with oxygen.

It’s really sad that I’ll probably never live to see all of this happen. Although if we get started fast and find a way to make aging very very slow or non existent then I definitely could, as would most of us. Either way, I think my new goal is to go to space and/or another planet during my lifetime.

The first human colony will be established in 2025 and will probably be self-sufficient by 2050. Life extension technology is being discovered and tested as we speak and genetic engineering. it is said that by 2030 most people will have access to life extension technology. So people born between 1960 and now could for sure live to be at least 150 if not 300+

It'd be interesting to explore the political side of trying to colonize the moon. What would economic treaties be like? Could a moon colony survive if Earth governments decided to cut imports from them? Who would benefit from technology discovered on the moon? How would a war between Earth and moon colonies seeking independence pan out, how hard would it be to achieve independency or to decimate moon colonies?

I know this is 3 years ago and just going over the basics with super idealized visuals and whatnot, but actually one of the BIGGEST industries on the moon is low gravity manufacturing. Microgravity isnt ideal for this, mostly at least, as liquids would be very difficult to control there, but processes that involve growing near perfect or absolutely perfect crystals of materials would need microgravity, but would still be made more feasible and reasonable if the mood already had a colony. Point is though, a lot of manufacturing processes are plagued with issues from convection, sedimentation, and other gravity related things. To have far less gravity would help them out massively, and if any of it could be sourced on the moon and simply sent back, would mean so much
Michael Timpson
You know you should discuss the effects on the anatomy of a child born on the moon or mars. Would they even be able to handle the gravity of Earth? That would be a great video.

The astronauts in space even for the few months of space station work already exprience problems. They bones become porous in space and they have to get back into shape when they return. For someone living in such enviroment all life it would be very hard to adopt to earth gravity. Imagine if you suddenly had to live in 3 times larger gravity. You could still walk, but it would be exhausting just to stand up. However human body is extremely adaptive and it seems we genetically engineer outselves to our enviroment already.

The Introverted Arcanist
Just a thought: The moon will almost certainly host our first extraterrestrial colonies. This makes them a more likely candidate for the first colony to become its own country. When the United States declared independence, it was the first colony in history to do so, and its declaration became the groundwork for several others. And, because the American Revolution was the first war fought over a colony’s independence and the rights of the people, it inspired other people across the globe to fight for both of those things. Therefore, I predict that when the moon colonies (or at least some of them) inevitably become independent, their first actions will be seen as normal for a new space-nation. Other space colonies could decide to revolt for the reasons the moon colonies did (freedom, land being stolen by Earth nations, rights, etc.), meaning that several colonies would no longer provide free/cheap resources to Earth for protection. Perhaps it would turn out like Saudi Arabia today, a separate country the US still extorts oil from. It’ll be different, that’s for sure. Nothing will be the same in space.

Im not an Elon fanboy by any means but the general private interest in Space is what is going to get things moving. Optimistically I'd love to see a permanent lunar colony in my lifetime.

Group B Elon isn’t going to get us to mars. No offense but the moon maybe as far as we go. I mean the logistics and the fact the most people forget mars doesn’t have an ionosphere so a solar flare would ruin us. Plus mars is too small. Elon’s just a mascot for SpaceX and Tesla

Might have already been said before plenty of times or might be an unpopular opinion but couldn't they create 2 bases, 1 on each side of the moon, that way one base will be 6 months of light, the other 6 months of darkness, every 6 months they jump to orbit and go to the other base. There's plenty of oxygen on the moon to constantly make fuel for the thrusters each time. After plenty of time building and adding onto each base, perhaps they can make it so the one in the dark period can have fusion or nuclear energy so it doesn't have to rely on solar energy? Idk, easier said than done yes but I feel like this'd be the most sufficient way to do it.

Haha! Not so sure about that. :-D There are a lot of much brighter minds out there. It's just cool to be a part of the whole scientific community. You should see me on conferences. Like a little girl in a candy store. In a way I never had to grow up. So, lots of exploring left to be done. And the rush you get when you discover something (even if it's something small that won't change the world) and you know you are probably the first person in the world to have seen this...

The main benefit of seemingly “useless” space exploration is the insane amount of new technology required to complete the tasks, almost all of which gets transferred to every day technology on earth. The same thing happens with automotive racing and new super cars. Lots of people don’t see the point of big companies spending millions of dollars just to drive some fast cars, but without the competition of developing the best car, there will be no more innovation for all cars. It takes a lot of money to make new technology, and using race cars or $1m super cars to develop the tech is the best way and usually the only way to do it. If you like safe tires, seatbelts, roll cages, safe suspension, fuel economy, reliability, crumple zones, aerodynamics, airbags, heads up displays, touchscreens, bolstered seats, safe brakes, AI assists, self driving, EVs, backup cameras, radar, and basically every comfort/safety technology in relatively inexpensive cars, you need to thank racing and the super expensive cars of the past. Same exact thing applies to space exploration and basically every endeavour we do that pushes the limits of human technology. Without pushing these limits human innovation would stagnate.

My biggest concern is actually what living in 1/6th G for a long, long period would do to the human body. Would it perhaps be better to put a space tether on the Moon and have people live in orbit on spinning platforms that simulate 1 G? Most work would be remote, unless you REALLY need to go down to the surface via the elevator to do something.

Maybe take shifts. Two weeks on the surface of the moon during the day, then two weeks in the rotating habitat getting exercise. OSHA would have guidelines on maximum lunar gravity exposure.

Nah, because without competition, governments wouldn't spend the ridiculous amounts of money to invent the technology in the first place. Most of the innovations we use today came because of war or something that happen because of the war. Think of Antibiotics, the Internet, Jet engines, computers and much more.
