    Do you think we have a space station on the Moon already?

    It's been over 40 years since we watched the first men walk on the Moon.  Do you think it's reasonable that we never went back after all that effort?  Or have we had bases established on the Moon ever since.

    Not yet, but sooner or later, the moon will be a new home.
    Our current population on Earth is exhausting the resources as is.

    I think once particle teleportation is fully developed (scientists have been able to teleport single atoms ex. boron), we will then move onto the moon. Teleportation can then be used to transfer water and perhaps even food.

    As of year 2011, there is no space station on the moon and there will not be one there for many years (especially when US space shuttles are no longer flying currently).   A space station on the moon take so much effort and money that one country alone will not be able to do it.  You need the corporations of many countries to do it.

    This was what happened when they built the "International Space Station" (ISS).   There does exist the International Space Station, but it is not on the moon.  It is located in low-earth orbit.

    There is no telling if there is not already a base on the Lunar surface. Why not forgo telling the public about it? After all most people are not as intelligent as we give them credit for. Imagine starting a break away civilization under wraps that only provides the public just enough to show some results but not the whole truth of the project. One could start an entirely new society among the stars and use money from the tax payers of the world to get it started. All we would really need is just enough to start  it up- after reaching other worlds such as Luna, our moon, we could use the resources that are abundantly available and make a base mostly underground. From there we would branch off and colonize the rest of Solar System, and move on to research other worlds not so distant from our own.

    The price to do all of this is far cheaper than what NASA portrays, but do not let a dupe know this- contrary opinions tend to fry the minds of those who are so fervently locked into their mold of the truth. Private enterprise has proven that space travel can be achieved at a fraction of the price listed on NASA. There are of course reasons for such a high price, one being a black budget of a possible break away civilization underway. There are so many intelligent minds out there, why would any of them want to stay down on Earth when the stars are within their grasp? Some of us want to leave home, and we have the technology to do so- we have had the technology to do so for at least half a century, and the technology is only improving.
