NASA Moon Colony

Nov 21, 2018

For 60 years, NASA has been at the forefront of technological advancement with a huge emphasis on the exploration of space on all fronts — manned and unmanned. They even put a human on the moon back in 1969. But once the shuttle missions were officially halted in 2004 and their replacement canceled in 2010, it seemed like it might be the beginning of the end. Now, however, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration is ready to do something they haven’t done in almost half a century: return to the moon.

In a stunning move, NASA posted a short, yet abundantly informative video announcing new plans for the future. Not only do they hope to go back to the moon but they want to make the trip permanent — establishing a base of operations. Of course, their plans following that are even grander, including using the lunar colony as a jumping off point to get humanity to Mars. If you want to see what else they’re planning, you can check out the announcement video — with a voice-over from none other than Mike Rowe (of Dirty Jobs fame) — below.
