Jun. 22nd, 2005 @ 04:34 pm Since I was a Kid
I've wanted to build a House on the Moon.

Space Stations are Nice but So Much Upkeep.

You Can't Just Stop Pushing it Up into that Orbit. Not like you could put it there and come back in 1000 Years. Radiation! Solar Flares and Think of the Panic Now over Global Warming.

Stand in the Microwave with a TinFoil Hat?

The Moon Though.

It's Been there a While Now. Lower Gravity but Things Still Fall.

You Can't Split Three Space but If You Could... Mirror FlatLand into the Crooked House.

That Lost Dutchman Does the TimeWarp.

Mining is One Thing Man Can Do Pretty Well at this Point.

Modular Housing? Strip Mining?

Burrow a Deep Trench. Robotic D9's then Stack Those Modules and BackFill. No Moisture to Worry about.

Cheap Radiation Protection. A Mad Rush Could Build a Large Spacious Functional but Primitive Start.

The Rock to Build From.

Room to Run without a Suit. A way to Avoid that Cabin Fever When There is No Fast Way Home.

SandHogs. Tunnel Builders. You can Build a Tunnel From England to France?

Anyone Ever Taken a Mile Deep Core Sample?

Sent a Probe or Two and then Knocked on it to Hear the Echo?

A Cement Shortage? That One Seemed Odd but There are many Ways to Build a Vacuum Resistant Tunnel.

Welding in a Vacuum? No Flux Needed?

Steel Remotely Piloted could Really Take some G's.

A Nesting Doll of Pipe in the Shape of a Rocket, Onioned For the Trip, no need to Jettison Anything, Make it all Reusable Morphed into Shelters.

You could spend some time Just Tossing the Stuff up There, Low Tech in Bulk.

Shotgun Seat a Unique Idea With Grappling Hooks and Extendable Arms.

Have it spend some More time Straightening Up.

Get the Ducks in a Row before The Quick Arrive. Snap it Together Redundantly. Living and Working Areas Linked but Safely Distant.

Don't Panic Stations.

Lots of Baskets, not Just One, for Those Future Eggs.

Thirty Years. But Build for Hundreds.

Just a Thought.

Another Idea someone beat me to?

I don't recognize the title but it sounds like a good one for a book...
