Good ideas but the neighborhood lacks ambience: new images reveal what a home might look like for the first astronauts to live on the moon

  • NASA has committed to sending a man and woman back to the moon by 2024
  • The European Space Agency believes the structures will begin to be built within a decade
  • Bricks for homes can be built using regolith, thin lunar clay on the moon

The new images reveal what a home might look like for the first astronauts to live on the moon – as the world prepares to build a permanent base there.

NASA has committed to sending a man and woman back to the moon by 2024, reports the Times, and has released the names of 18 astronauts.

Part of the new mission will include building a permanent colony on the moon, where engineers can learn how to use lunar resources, such as water from ice in its pits.

They will also study unexplored areas and provide a base from which astronauts can travel to Mars, where NASA intends to send a man and woman by 2030.

Eden Cowley, an adviser to the European Space Agency (ESA), said it was not a question of ‘it won’t happen now’.

He said: ‘It has to be because if we are really serious about exploring the Moon, or Mars or any further than that, then this is the technology we need to master very soon.’

They believe that cylindrical structures will begin to be built within a decade for astronauts to live, but they need to be protected from radiation exposure.

Mr. Cowley plans to use the regolith, lunar clay on the moon as thin as icing sugar, to make protective bricks.

Scientists believe that using the walls and roof of a meter deep regolith will protect buildings against radiation and freezing temperatures on the moon.

Bricks manufactured using an upper layer of clay will be collected by robots and converted into bricks by a 3D printer before being left to bake in the sun.

Astronauts are likely to live in pressurized, mobile habitats for the first few years of missions, but the more permanent base will be near the Shekton crater.

It is at the south pole of the moon where continuous sunlight is near, and solar panels can provide power.

The pit contains ice that can be mined to provide hydrogen and oxygen for the breath air and fuel.

The director general of the European Space Agency, Jane Warner, said: ‘I intend to build a permanent base station on the moon.

‘This means that it is an open station, for different member states, for different states around the world.’

Mr. Warner likes to call the new township a ‘Moon Village’, and it would represent a giant leap in space exploration.
