Dreams of Lunar Outposts

Lunar Colony 1969

The illustration above was taken from a 1969 National Geographic story (“The Moon, Man’s First Goal in Space”) and used in a NASA report on space resources developed in 1984 and published in 1992. Below is a 1985 depiction of the advanced lunar base we’re supposed to have by 2015. Dennis Davidson is the artist.

    I’m both thrilled and terrified at the thought of being the first settlers on the moon. On one hand it’d be freakin’ awesome to just be there. On the other hand, you’re totally screwed if anything were to go wrong.
