The European Space Agency presented a moon base concept design on their website, which was created by a group of Greek architecture students spearheaded by Angelis Alfatzis. It’s worth noting that the project is more than just a pretty picture: it represents a comprehensive plan of the base, including measures ensuring resistance to environmental effects and complete safety for its inhabitants.
Extreme temperatures, solar radiation, gravity and meteor showers represent the main challenges standing in the way of long-term habitation on the moon. Specific solutions were proposed for all of them.
The base will be built from inflatable modules prepared exclusively from materials available on the satellite. It will be located in a small crater on the south pole of the space object. Each module will have its own life-support system and will be equipped with protection from radiation and meteors.
