To Infinity And Beyond

NASA has announced plans for a permanent base on the moon by 2020. The facility would mine hydrogen from the lunar service to fuel rockets heading elsewhere in the solar system. The environment around the base would, of course, be extremely dangerous, potentially deadly, outrageously inhospitable, and completely unsuitable for wandering around in without protective gear.

Kind of like our bases in Iraq now.
