Nasa to build on the Moon

Nasa has turned the Hubble Space Telescope to point at the moon to begin lookig for a suitable site to build a ‘Moon Base’.

What Nasa is looking for are sites with a good supply of ilmenite, a mineral from which to extract oxygen, hydrogen and helium. As well as producing air and water, the flammable gases could be burned to generate electricity. Nasa scientists know to look for ilmenite, as it was found in soil samples brought back by the Apollo missions.

Nasa is looking to build a colony on the Moon as soon as 2018. I wonder if they will decide to build on my Lunar Plot? I wonder what rent I could charge!
