What we need
To survive on the moon, we need lots of water. To solve this, we need to find where to get water on the moon. For this, we need some help from our helpful friends, robots. Robots can search at the moon for years because they don’t need food or water, just batteries. That’s why we have lots of robots up there right now.
A final conclusion
As you can see, being on the moon is very efficient, it only benefits us. Except for one thing, it’s expensive, but now the price is lowering due to no use. Scientist McKay states "The cost is getting so low, maybe we don't even need to think of NASA doing it," So thanks to this, NASA doesn’t have to do it, a private company could build a moonbase up there. By putting moon bases on the moon, we can give ourselves shelter there for at least 2 years. Due to our rising technology, we will have the chance to go there in our lifetime, probably in 15 years give or take. Do you think that we will eventually colonize the moon? Or do you think we are just using it to colonize Mars? Think about it, you might help out in this mission.
