      Yeah I think so, the international space station is already like a floating house in space. The European Space Agency has a plan for a permanently manned Lunar base by 2025, so do the US, Russia, China, India and Japan. Every wants to build a house on the moon!

      Yeah, the moon real estate is going like hot cakes!! Get your piece while it lasts. I think George Bush (previous USA president) bought a load of space real estate… but he is not a great guy to model your investment plans on… My expectation is that most of the moon base ideas will fall through unless we find a much cheaper way of getting there.
