Can we colonize the moon? If yes, when and how many years will it take to fully colonize it?

Yes, and apparently China has plans to do it before the rest of us. China is planning to build a colony of humans on the Moon and use it for a launching pad to Mars.

This is quite possible to actually happen.

I don’t favor manned missions to other planets over unmanned probes, but I can’t help it if Communist China decides they are going to do it.

China has been sending manned missions to space for sometime now.

    1. Well, I went over to your blog and enjoyed the article. Thank you.

      When it comes to space exploration I draw from an unpopular view that there are two NASAs, Hollywood NASA and science NASA. Going to the moon, the ISS, and dreams of Mars fall within the former category. Sending probes to Saturn and Jupiter fall within the latter category.

      It’s just my opinion, mind you.

      Nevertheless, with or without NASA, if China wants to construct a Moon base who can stop them? They do whatever they want, and they have money to spend. The United States is no longer the leader of space exploration. That may be seen as good or bad, depending on opinion.
