If one day we are forced to expand our lives to the moon, we don’t want to make the same mistakes we’ve made here on Earth. Enter Luna Gaia, a green concept idea for making the moon living experience not only enjoyable, but friendly to the lunar environment.
Luna Gaia would be a self-sustaining habitat, which gathers solar energy and reuses all of its waste (mmm, urine water!) Luna Gaia is more than just your average Green-design lunar habitat (if there is an “average”). It has been presented to NASA, and might even be integrated into real life lunar outposts around the year 2020. That is, if we don’t nuke ourselves to hell before that. — Andrew Dobrow
