What this book is all about

What is the history of plans to build a base on the Moon and what are all the issues involved?

Where should the base be built and what will be do once we have long term habitation on the Moon?

And what are the latest plans for lunar rovers, communications, and other moon base systems?

My hope is that the reader will learn about all of the issues important to building a Moon Base to better understand what will be required.

You might even want to become a Moon Base resident!
