    • Man on the Moon By: Marissa Langevin
    • Colonizing the Moon
      Cons greatly outweigh the pros
      Humans won’t inhabit the Moon, it will be a whole new species
      $10-20 billion each year to sustain
      Being strapped to bed could hurt
      Hard to hold food, brush teeth, and other everyday tasks
    • Moon vs. Mars
      Has been discussed among astronauts for over 50 years
      Decided that we will colonize the Moon before Mars
      The Moon is 238,857 miles away, Mars is between 36 million to 250 million miles away
      Could get to Moon in 3 weeks going at 500 MPH on a jetliner; 6 months to go to Mars
    • Apollo Missions
      Nine Apollo missions have been sent into space
      Seven missions had men land on the Moon
      The first two missions had to go back to Earth before landing
      First mission made 10 orbits around the Moon
      Second mission came within 50,000 feet of landing
    • LCROSS “Shooting the Moon”
      Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite (LCROSS) “shot the Moon” on October 9th, 2009
      Sent a satellite into the Cabeus A crater in search of ice by the southern lunar pole
      Found the ice, which can be chemically reduced to oxygen
    • Marius Crater
      Only known area on the Moon with oxygen
      Enough oxygen to sustain a colony
      213 wide by 269 feet deep
      Could lead to breakthrough and help us find other craters with oxygen
    • Spacesuits
      Help to regulate temperature and oxygen
      Will help to slow muscle atrophy and bone decalcification
      Takes 500 man-hours (2 ½ years) for one person to make one spacesuit
      All spacesuits are 3/16” thick, and made of 11 materials
    • Spacesuits (cont.)
      Apollo spacesuits weighed 180 pounds (30 lbs on Moon)
      Current spacesuits weigh 310 pounds (103.3 lbs on Moon)
      Spacesuits are white because they reflect the sun’s light and heat
    • When We Might Colonize
      Within the next 40-70 years
      No definite plans where on the Moon to colonize
      Would cost $10-20 billion per year to sustain the colony
    • Pros of Colonizing
      Great space observation location
      Rest stop for astronauts, place to refill rocket fuel
      Telephone‘s could be used on the Moon, with only a 3 second delay
    • Cons of Colonizing
      Many health risks
      Lunar soil is extremely abrasive and toxic, and causes serious lung conditions
      Hospitals would have difficulty functioning on the Moon
      There is a risk of getting hit by a meteorite
      Risk of jumping too high, or falling off the Moon into the never-ending depthsof space
    • Health Risks
      Still developing children and young adults’ spines and digestive systems would grow to abnormal lengths
      Children would die before having offspring
      Very poor blood circulation
      Muscle atrophy
      Bone decalcification
    • Evolution to New Species
      Evolution is constantly occurring
      In space, humans would evolve into a completely new species
    • Thank You for Watching
      To me, colonizing the Moon is an expensive and risky task that may cause more harm than good to the human race in the long-run.
      I hope you enjoyed my presentation
