      Maybe not a whole civilisation, but I think (and hope) that in a few years time we will have the technologies to have a small group of astronauts living on the moon. A whole civilisation will require a huge amount of food, water and oxygen, and this will very hard to get on the moon.

      Hi YoUr_An_baD and 120trn28,

      I think so yes, as we learn more things and develop new technologies through research and from missions like Tim’s.

      Are you volunteering to live there?!?! 😉
