Making the Moon Habitable: Looking for Food, Water, and Resources

The idea of harvesting resources from the moon has been floated around recently and if researchers could find evidence of possible means of inhabiting the moon, we might soon find ourselves turning our attention to space projects associated with getting people to the moon like the lunar gateway and space tourism.

But whether there are resources that could be mined from the moon is still a bit of a stretch, especially if we are looking toward possible migration and habitation to the moon. Nonetheless, several probes and exploration missions on the moon might give us more understanding of the conditions there. We will just have to wait and see.

Have a look at 'The Moon is a Harsh Mistress', by Robert A. Heinlein. Practically a manual on how to make a living world out of Luna. And a hell of a good story, as well!
