    oh and one important thing to keep in mind when talking to anything I don't mind 9aka groen) is that he believes objects traveling in space need constant thrust ie the rockets have to fire all the way.

    hence why is misunderstanding of the power required for travel is so significant.


    im not sure what giant ****ing engines are moving the earth through space though.

    about 10+ meters of heaped moon dust and rock over the base?


    you don't have to build the base on the surface, under the ground (open excavation not tunnel boring) is much more sensible and removes most of the technical issues.


    Resin.

    lots of work has gone in to it and if you mix moon dust with strong epoxy resins you get a stuff that's basically like very strong concrete you can dig trenches use dust to make thick concrete slaps (meters thick) to line the trench and cap it with more slaps and cover.

    you need it very think for protection from impacts, radiation and the cold.

    but yeah it's doable, can even get water out of the dust.

    moon dust has some quite unique properties because of it's structure.

    It's gods will that moves the Earth though space. That's all you need to know. Praise Jebus !

    Lol groen :)

    Here's a few questions for you to consider. Researching the answers would be a fun way to find out what is wrong with your statements.

    1. How long is a lunar day?

    2. How long were the Apollo missions on the moon?

    With these answered, then you can work out...

    3. Therefore, how many lunar days and nights, with their associated extreme temperature variations, were the astronauts and their equipment on the moon for?

    Now this last one might not even make much sense to you till you have the answers to the others, but hang in there...

    4. What time of the lunar day did the Apollo missions take place?

    Good luck.

    Trick question, answer is zero, they went up in the rocket and down in a powerchute and straight back to the hollywood studio where the suits and batteries (lol) could withstand the earths temps without any problems.

    4. What time of the lunar day did the Apollo missions take place?

    Irrelevant because they never left the atmosphere. :rolleyes:

    I can barely run a desk fan with a 16 volt battery.

    There are quite a lot of reasons why a permanent facility on the moon would have to be subterranean none the least due to meteorite impacts.

    If there was an Oscar for best Troll in a motion picture, you would win hands down. Even Robert De Niro could not better you. I saw The Hobbit the other day and there were some pretty convincing Trolls in that, but they pale into insignificance when I read your posts. I salute you Sir. You have taken Method Acting to a new level and I shall make it my life's ambition to ensure I follow all of your subsequent posts. You are the apex predator of credulity.

    It would be impossible because we wouldn't be able to get past Eddie Van Halen's belt.

    ANYWAY, I recently watched a funny documentary called Aliens On The Moon.

    You sure this "Documentary" wasn't called Iron Sky starring Udo Kier?

    What we should do is not that difficult. We need to setup a plan for remote management of construction vehicles and we need robots advanced enough to repair and implement communications and other machines that can assist in moon base implementation. Then a ship large enough to send them to the moon. The ship will have to have a transport module that could break off and land on the moon surface with no plan of exit, that contains machines and robots. Now we need to setup comms first and we need two comms satellite at least for backup and robots that can repair the satellites and spare parts and 3d printer. Then we send out the remote controlled construction vehicle and machine to create the moon base for the man. Then when man goes on a one way trip they can land at the moon base. Of course this does not solve the problem of propulsion or the many other problems. This is just how i think it would be done if we ever have the technology to get us there.

    You would be funny if the posts weren't so dull to read whilst somehow also being mind-bendingly stupid.

    No one likes a boring troll.

    The thread is about creating a moon base, so I have shared how i think a moon base will happen and was not trying to be funny. I don't see why you moan about trolling the whole time?

    Sure you don't.

    You might try and come across like it but I don't believe for a minute you're actually that stupid.

    The constant nonsense about it being impossible to get the moon and 16v batteries etc.

    I don't buy for a minute that he actually believes any of it.

    It's all for a reaction - trolling.

    a moon base is kind of like a space station in many ways, just further away and harder to get to.

    technically possible yes, economically feasable no.

    its for the same reason we havent tried a manned mars mission by building a large rocket in space [or a space station with engines] and leaving a cookie crumb trail of automated pods containing food etc along the way. nobodys going to pay for that many large rocket launches, not yet anyway

    Apologies, I thought you were on about the OP.

    Like I've said before, if America never landed on the Moon why did Russia accept that they did?
    For all the 100s of CTs concerning the Moon Landings nobody has ever got past that one.
