Can We Build a Moon Base? I Asked Experts. (Part 4)
#TheMoon is our closest neighbor, cold, dead and silent. Could we actually survive there? I asked a couple of experts! 🌌LEAVING EARTH SERIES 🌌
Part 1: 🌍 We have to leave Earth
Part 2: 🚀 Rockets are boring.
Part 3: 👽 Mars is Deadly.
Part 4: 🌔 Lunar living?
Part 5: 🛰 To the stars.

Every new patron causes a litany of excited squeals. Thank you for all your support 💕 Landing on the moon was an achievement celebrated all over the world. The Apollo astronauts were the first to realize the power of a visit to our largest satellite, but could we all one day have a chance to visit the moon? The SpaceX Launch changed how we looked at space. JPL is sending robots to Mars. Eventually we are going to go back to the Moon, but whereas last time we visited for a day a time, now we're talking about forming a permanent #lunarbase! Could we ACTUALLY live there? Could we REALLY survive? I called Ariel Waldman and Pascal Lee to get their take. SERIES DESCRIPTION:
Can we #LiveOnMars? Can we build a #LunarColony? Should we leave this solar system entirely? What would we need to visit another star? Can humans survive out there in the emptiness of space? I answer all these questions and more in my new science and technology series all about #leavingearth! New episodes every other day all week! FIND @Ariel Waldman ::

National Research Council's report :: The Scientific Context for Exploration of the Moon
Looking beyond the several lunar robotic missions to be flown by 2008 (by the international community), science goals need to be articulated for early decisions about system design and operations planning for later robotic and human activities on the Moon. For a longer-range human presence on the Moon, the scope of science is potentially broader, including extensive field studies and sampling, plus the emplacement or assembly and the maintenance and operation of major equipment on the lunar surface

To support a potential, future lunar base, researchers at the European Space Agency (ESA) have 3D-printed and baked fake moon dust into screws, gears, and even a coin. Printing bricks from moondust using the Sun’s heat
Bricks have been 3D printed out of simulated moondust using concentrated sunlight – proving in principle that future lunar colonists could one day use the same approach to build settlements on the Moon. How to build a moon base
Half a century after humans first walked on the moon, a number of private companies and nations are planning to build permanent bases on the lunar surface. Despite the technological progress since the Apollo era, this will be extremely challenging. So how should you get started? Apollo 11

Searching For Ice In The Moon’s Shadowed Craters
When you’re out in space, water is the most precious resource you can get your hands on. It can be used for air, water, to grow food, radiation shielding, and most importantly, as the propellant for your spacecraft. Exploration of the Moon has revealed that there’s a tremendous amount of water ice locked into the regolith, but it’s probably very difficult to access. But there are also permanently shadowed craters at the Moon’s poles that could have more than enough water to support a permanently inhabitable station on the Moon. But it’s going to be tricky to get at, considering the fact that temperatures in the shadows plunge to -240 degrees Celsius, just 30 degrees above absolute zero. Our Book is out!

SuperMoon 2020: The biggest Full Moon of the year #SuperPinkMoon
Super Pink Moon, the biggest SuperMoon of 2020 occurred on
Tuesday, April 7. ► Expedition 63 Crew Launch to the International Space Station SET REMINDER: https://youtu.be/paVV06VkE9Q ► NASA Radio: Earth from Space LIVE NOW : https://youtu.be/PFKKXz_Jh10 A SuperMoon takes place when a full moon is at its closest to the Earth. On Tuesday (April 7), the moon will arrive at its closest point to Earth in 2020: a distance of 221,772 miles (356,907 kilometers) away. The name Pink Moon comes from the pink wildflowers, Wild Ground Phlox, that bloom in the spring and are native to North America. #SuperMoon #SuperLuna #LunaLlena ► Copyright FREE music provided by: Calm - Silent Partner Song: "Sappheiros - Embrace [Chill]" is under a Creative Commons license (CC BY 3.0)

What is a Supermoon?
A supermoon occurs when the moon’s orbit is closest (perigee) to Earth at the same time it is full. So what's so special about a supermoon? Watch #NASAatHome to learn more and visit nasa.gov/moon
What is a Pink Supermoon? | Super Pink Moon 2020
A "pink supermoon” (or “super pink moon”) occurs on Tuesday, April 7. This particular supermoon will be the biggest and brightest of the year, because it is full closest to the point of perigee. Perigee makes a full moon appear up to 7% larger and 15% brighter than a typical full moon. Traditionally, any full moon that occurred in April was called a Pink Moon. As for “supermoon,” the astronomical term is perigee-syzygy of the Earth-Moon-Sun system. Syzygy happens every time there is a full moon, and perigee is when the Moon comes closest to Earth in its slightly elliptical orbit around the Earth. On April 7, perigee (11:08am AZ/PT) occurs just over 8 hours before syzygy (7:35pm AZ/PT), and so we get a Pink Supermoon. The Moon rises due east at 6:42pm, here in Flagstaff, Arizona.

I'm going to steal the Moon... (with a giant electromagnet)
I've been feeling some evil genius tendencies creep out in my social isolation, so I'm embracing them in this video with the science of how I'm going to steal the Moon with a giant electromagnet, a Hohmann transfer orbit and a bolt of lightning...

Say Hello To Earths Mini Moon 2020 CD3
What do you do if you're a lonely planet looking for a new companion? Well you might use your gravity to catch yourself a tiny moon. That's what our Earth did with a small car-sized chunk of space rock called 2020 CD3 discovered by Kacper Wierzchos and Teddy Pruyne at the Catalina Sky Survey. Learn more:

NASA's Lunar Gateway Is Being Skipped In The Race To The Moon
About 2 weeks ago NASA human spaceflight managers announced that the Lunar Gateway was no longer part of the plans of lunar landing targetted for 2024. The Lunar Gateway is a small space station in a loosely bound orbit near the moon, that can act as a staging site for mission to both the Moon and Mars. Up till now the plan was to have Orion dock there and take a lander to the surface of the moon, but I speculate that the new plan will involve Boeing launching the whole mission on 2 Upgraded SLS rockets.
