A colony of humans on the Moon

In a previous blog post I wrote that I hoped we would never have a colony on Mars or the Moon. I’m a pessimist, you see.

Well, it turns out that China has plans to start building a colony on the far side of the moon in 2018 to be completed by 2022. This is possible for them to achieve because they have superior launch capabilities.

There is an advantage to face away from Earth on the moon. What could be learned about the universe and ourselves cannot be underestimated.
