ESA Reveals Its Plans To Build A "Moon Village" In 20 Years Time


Almost 50 years since we first stepped foot on the Moon, humanity looks like it could be on the verge of its grandest space adventure yet, by setting up a "Moon village."

Along with the help of the world’s other spacefaring nations, the European Space Agency (ESA) has ambitious plans to start establishing a Moon village in the next 20 years. Part of this idea is to establish a base for scientific research, a bit like how the International Space Station currently functions. However, there’s also talk of using the village for purposes such as mining and even as a tourist holiday destination.

In this ESA video, Johann-Dietrich Wörner, director general of ESA, shows you through some of the plans that ESA have up their sleeve in regards to setting up camp on the Moon.
