Links:
- 1. I think that we should build a lunar base
before we attempt to make a martian
base, because it's close proximity to Earth
would allow us to more quickly ship our
technology and run tests on how it would
perform in space.
- 2. It should be an international effort because
it would save all of the countries interested in
doing so a lot of money because it'd be split
among many nations. Also because it would
instill a sense of pride in humanity as a whole
to be able to colonize other planets.
- 3.They'd be living in inhospitable
environments with no atmosphere or arable
land. They would also have to live in small,
enclosed habitats, that are physically isolated
from the rest of humanity.
- 4. They would have to deal the the
confinement of lunar bases, the inability to
grow lots of crops on the moon, and the fact
that they'd probably get lonely on the moon,
separated from pretty much all humans.
- 5. I would most likely miss all of the junkfood
that i can't get on the moon, and the wide
open areas that I can roam around in on earth.
- 6. I'd probably go to school, but learn more
practical things. Like repairing the equipment
that'd keep us alive. I'd probably start working
sooner than i would on earth as we'd need all
help to keep thing afloat. And for recreation I
probably wouldn't be able to play as many
sports because most bases on other planets
would be very small.

BioBlast High School Program
http://www.cotf.edu/BioBLAST/ BioBLAST® is
a multimedia curriculum supplement for high
school biology classes. It encourages students
to conduct real scientific research, based on
actual research now being conducted by
NASA’s Advanced Life Support Research
program. Hands-on laboratory investigations,
computer simulations, and Internet-based
telecommunications resources may be
accessed via the BioBLAST virtual reality
interface, which depicts a futuristic,
moon-based research outpost. NASA Home
