Moon StationAlpha__Moon Based Solar Power Station Better Choice

Updated on January 28, 2013

USA Lead Consortium For Moon StationAlpha Logical Choice

Solar Power Generation Station in moon is a logical choice for brining benefit to cooperating nations on earth. This option is logically more fesable provided the recently announced confirmation of existence of substaintial amount of water on moon by both NASA in USA and

Space Agency of India in late 2009.

If the water is sufficient to sustain moon workers colony with some provisions for moon colony vacationers, then a case can be made for the feasibility of a moon power station with solar material harvested by robot manunfacturing tools to enable a decent size solar power station on moon without any substantial new technology necessary.

There are constrains of course in setting up a solar power station in moon logically primarily operated by robots. To use the water from the moon for say a slowly otating moon workers living quarters tethered to the moon to give it earth like gravity would create a living environment that is similar to earth people whose physiology is geared to earth environment and not long sustainable existence in moon which has about 13% of the gravity of earth.

Moon Station Living Quarters Thethered & Slow Rotation Space Station

Technology Mostly Exists Already__This Option Better Than Space Based Solar Power Studied Since 60s

Our human bodies simply will function normally in a slowly rotating moon living quarters with earth like gravity than living on moon.

This does not preclude of course humans for such necessary functions as to check on robots at the moon solar power plant or for other functions that can be performed for short period of work visits to the moon surface by human workers.

This topic of slowly rotating moon living quarters thetered to the moon was discussed on a previous Squidoo lense published earlier and referenced in the link list below.

There are of course other hurdles here on earth that has to be overcome that are difficult as humanity still has much to learn about humanity to work for peaceful cooperation rather than compete for millitary dominance.

Challenge of Inter-Culture Coooperation Ahead - And Trust With Mutual Respect

It is humbling that here in the early part of 21st Century, nations cooperating together do not know how to prevent war in regions of the earth like in Middle East or Africa for example now. Or prevent terrorist small groups from executing mindless violence on innocent men, women and children.

So, much is to be learned yet about human nature here on earth before the fragile inter-dependent living necessary on such a alen environment as in a moon colony.

It’s really a culture and economic issue than anything else as well as a population issue.

For example, there are now more than 7 billion humans alive today in eartly part of 21st Century on earth. We know now thatnks to long and painstaking scientific work of human palentologists over the last 2 centuries that it was only a small band of human specie less than 50 individuals probably who left Africa some 50,000 years ago, and populated the whole earth. It’s a mind boggling thought that most of that time since then, the existence of humans before agriculture, before industrialization has been the existencin small bands of families and clans and not as villages or cities or nations.

Precedence Exist Now On Space Station Cooperation - And Beyond Draft Moon Treaty to Trust and Agreements for Humanity

But there has been precedence to international cooperation among nations in space.

There even There Exists a Moon Colony Draft Treaty for many years now that no nation yet has signed. But a nation like USA or leading European Nation or India, given they tend to put international cooperation far more emphasis than say ultra nationalist China today.

it may not be difficult to forge a international consortium to enable a Moon Colony Solar Power Station that permits limited use of Moon's resources to enable a Moon based. Presence such as Solar Power Station.

Such a Moon presence can benefits any or all nations who agree to the philosophy and principles of interanational cooperation according to resources invested as is typically done in investement banking industry for centuries now.

Space based solar power station (Space Solar Power SSP) has been studied extensively since the 60's in the United States. Much has been learned .But under current existing technologies and space transpooration costs, SSP simply is not feasible on a cost/benefit basis despite the fact that supply of solar power in space or in moon is substantially higher than on earth given the lack of atmospheric loses of sun's energy on earth's surface.

So, there is advantage of space based solar power.

There is even more advantage to a Moon based solar power statin that harvest solar energy, convert to microwave energy for transmission back to earth, same as the most feasible space solar power technology would do in the tale end to enable use of that solar energy here on earth by cooperating nations on earth.

But innovation comes from people meeting up in the hallways or calling each other at 10:30 at night with a new idea, or because they realized something that shoots holes in how we've been thinking about a problem.
