(5) Why do you want to go living in the Moon?
Living on Earth is eventually fatal (unless you know different).There are, and for the foreseeable future, will remain mandatory exercise regimes on the other hand, with the regimes as they are, I don't know that we presently have an upper limit indicated on exactly how long we can live in orbit in microgravity. The problems arise when you come back from microgravity to Earth's gravity.Issues like this will have to solved !It may be more of a concern as to what the effects of microgravity might be on a juvenile.The degree to which spinning units to generate some acceleration force, or to what extent the lesser gravity of the Moon, or Mars, will mitigate against the problems of microgravity is uncertain(at least it should be easier to sit down for a meal, or go to the toilette.
As well as coming back to earth posing a problem....... I always thought that living in a non gravitational environment is bad for you. There is no stress put upon your skeletal frame and you begin to wither away ......so an arduous exercise regime is prerequisite for survival !! .....well...perhaps one could survive but maintenance is required for mobility .It is a problem that will have to be solved.
Space is bad for you if you live in an orbiting space craft......eventually it's fatal yes ?..degradation of bone etc etc ..notwithstanding leaving the protection of earths atmosphere.... ( http://www.thenakedscientists.com/forum/index.php?topic=9175.new#new )So, when we eventually start building colonies on the moon,(1) will the gravity there make it all better ?... (2)or will people still have to visit earth periodically to enjoy earth gravity ?... (3) Will there be gravity making revolving things to counteract the gravity differential ?(4) Will there be compulsory exercise regimes ?
