NASA proposes $10bn moon base within 6 years

The US space agency has suggested that it would be possible to build a ‘cheap’ moon base by 2022.
Hot on the heels of ESA director general Johann-Dietrich Worner’s vision of a ‘moon village’ by 2030, scientists at NASA have been calculating how much it would actually cost to build a moon base within the next six years and the result is a lot less than you might expect.

Back in the 1960s the US spent the equivalent of $170 billion in today’s money on the historic Apollo program – a price that would seem to be but a pittance compared to that of building a moon base – yet researchers investigating the feasibility of such a project believe that setting up a lunar outpost could cost as little as $10 billion – a fraction of the cost of putting the first humans on the moon.
