Imagine a delivery service that promised to drop your package within five miles of your house, but couldn’t tell you exactly where until after the delivery had happened. That’s how landing on the moon has historically worked, and it’s a problem Astrobotics knows how to fix. The company’s unique GPS system allows it to land spacecraft within meters—rather than kilometers—of the intended target. That might not matter much now, but it will when moon colonizers need fresh supplies from their home planet. Production company Freethink documents the work of Astrobotics in this episode from the series The New Space Race.

why spend money to send whatever it is in the moon (Our only satelite)? spend money on cleAning our eaRth is more interesting than destroying our very own moon. I don't understand this thing that you're trying to create... I don't care on how intelligent this scientists and engineers are but sometimes I find them more stupid than a normal person when their using their intelligence in a useless way.
just an opinion you know...

Corporation are parasites, they have no place in space, or on Earth for that matter.

Need drives innovation, not profit. Remove corporations and business and society will run just fine, they are just motivational tools and not the only ones available.

The biggest problem of colonizing the Moon is the low gravity, it's not a problem to people who just wanna go there for a tour, but if you live there for years, it will mess you up.

In theory, you can build a giant space station that have artificial gravity from spinning the whole station to generates the centrifugal force, but if you gonna live on the surface of the moon, it's gonna be tricky.

Earth has become extremely overcrowded, polluted & overheated planet in past 3 decades. Its high time that humans along with certain plant & animal species start colonizing the moon.
