Why China & Europe are Building a Moon Village

Description

Yes, it's been confirmed, China has partnered with Europe to build a village on the Moon. The European Space Agency (ESA) and and the China National Space Administration (CNSA) are talking about collaborating on a very ambitious project.

And, unlike the International Space Station, the ISS, they plan to open up the Moon Village to the whole world.

China was barred from going to the ISS from US concerns over China's possible military application of its space program thanks to an act of Congress in 2011. No one from NASA may " develop, design, plan, promulgate, implement, or execute a bilateral policy, program, order, or contract of any kind to participate, collaborate, or coordinate bilaterally in any way with China."

Obviously with this policy, the US will not be involved in building this Moon village.

The Moon village could create a launch pad for trips further out into space, to places like Mars, eventually perhaps Saturn's moon Titan. It could become a tourist destination and home base for lunar mining.
