How Much It Costs To Live On The Moon

Is our future really on the moon? Let’s take a look at how much it would cost us to fly 238,900 miles to the moon, set up a home that would be able to withstand constant meteorite showers, extreme temperatures (we’re talking -157C at night!) and solar flares, and sustain ourselves with lunar greenhouses, if we do live on the barren rock. Fair warning: it’s not cheap. Any takers?

    Maybe we wont need to go there if we changed our ways of living on Earth.

      The purpose of setting up habitats on the Moon is not to relieve the population pressure on Earth but to take the next step on the road of Humanity becoming a spacefaring race.

      If we "changed our ways" and stopped killing each other for stupid reasons in useless wars, the population would grow that much faster.

      Faking the reduced gravity would be pretty difficult, Mango, and would probably cost more than $50K for the feasibility study ;-)...

      Faking the reduced gravity could be done the same way they did it back in the 60s.. just slow the video down, and use ballerinas in in spacesuits.. :)

    Just wondering about healthcare, especially on a hostile territory. Cost of doctors, and related healthcare? (Necessary in my opinion)
