Why aren’t we living on the Moon yet?
Jatan Mehta, TIFR
It’s been 50 years since humans landed on the Moon, so why haven’t we established a human settlement there already? The answer lies in water. Chandrayaan 1 made headlines by discovering water on the Moon. But is there enough water to power human settlements? Do we have the technology to extract this water? Chandrayaan 2 and NASA are finding out!
Let’s discuss the challenges and technological roadblocks that keep us from living on the Moon and beyond!
