The Moon’s close proximity to Earth allows for faster re-supply missions and emergency response compared to its farther celestial counterpart.
Lower gravity on the Moon makes it significantly cheaper to launch objects into space. It could be the perfect station between Earth and Mars.
Much of the technology we enjoy today are by-products of the research and development from the Space Race. This could be an opportunity to give rise to another wave of technological advancements.
Resources on the Moon and other celestial bodies are opportunities for commercial and economic opportunity.
