...that a moon colony is a bad decision.

I don't agree, making your statement false and wrong.

It's a great idea. Helium 3 farming galore.

The most important step we can take at this moment is mining ice outside earth's gravity well. Once we can manage that, everything else will become much easier.

Assuming we eventually colonize other planets, a moon base is probably inevitable.

Don't think so.

It all depends on how well-planned it is. Yeah, not preparing at all and attempting to set up a moon colony is obviously a bad idea.

But if there is enough planning, I don't see why it shouldn't be done.

This. I mean, why not.

You know, except for the fact that there's absolutely no money out there in the public sector to pay for it. Solution? Privatized moon colonies. Maybe...

Why? Because we might end up turning it into an amusement park attraction?

Without proper terraforming research, anything else related to space colonies becomes irrelevant.

Of course there will be lunar colonies. The Moon is the perfect testing ground for all of the technologies needed to eventually have bases on Mars. And it's right in our backyard: still in deep space, but only a few days away. Unlike Mars, where the timeline for rescue or resupply is months or even years.
