    Honestly, why hasn't anyone tried it before? I'm shocked, really.

    Fifty bucks says this is going to turn into another debate about AIs and all.

    Colonizing the moon? I wouldn't be surprise if people are studying how to do it. I did a friggin research paper on how to create an outer space settlement. =_;;;;

    And on to another, smaller, more dead rock? Yahoo!

    If the Japanese want to, I say go for it. It'll be interesting to see what happens.

    EDIT

    Because they obviously need my approval to get going on the project. :P

    Why do they even bother. The moon doesn't even have an electromagnetic field, let alone water or an atmosphere.

    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    While all progress is good progress I find that I ask myself why we'd want to do this. Seriously, the moon is a lifeless, barren ball of rock and dust. Is there any benefit whatsoever in building a lunar base besides proving a point?
