At least, according to Bustle, because the publication claims that there was a proposal by NASA to colonize the moon.

The publication claims that NASA managed to get their proposal costs down to $10 billion and reported that their project could become a reality as early as 2022.

The base would start small, with just ten people, but is estimated to grow up to 100 within 10 years.

The Earth and the moon have a fascinating relationship, but perhaps one of the more interesting facts is that during lunar eclipses the moon appears to be a reddish or brown color, and this is because of the Earth’s atmosphere, World Science Festival reports.

According to the publication, during this time, the sunlight that is reaching the moon is being passed through the Earth, which filters and refracts the sunlight creating the reddish hue.

What the publication teaches us is that were it not for Earth’s atmosphere, then a lunar eclipse would be blackened out and dark.

As previously mentioned, there is no “dark side” of the moon but there is a far side, and this myth was caused because on Earth we are only able to see one side of the moon.

The reason for this is because, as mentioned, the moon rotates on its axis, but according to Metro, the percentage of the lunar surface that humans are able to see is 59 percent.

Space expanded on this point, noting that the 59 percent is seen because of the phenomenon referred to as libration, which allows humans to see slightly over the edge of the moon and into the far side.

The shadows on the moon are darker than on the earth, according to Reader’s Digest.

This is something astronauts found out when walking the moon, and the publication claims the reason for this is because on earth we have an atmosphere which scatters light, thus making the shadows harder to see. But on the moon, this is absent.

According to Listverse, on the moon, everything that the sun didn’t shine directly on was completely black, and when astronauts stepped into shadows they couldn’t see anything.

The moon has become the subject of many stories, fables, and songs, and according to Futurism, the first-ever recorded song actually had mention of the moon.

This is 1860, by French bookseller and inventor, Édouard-Léon Scott de Martinville, who recorded a ten-second phonautograph clip of the French folk song, “Au Claire de la Lune” (the English translation, according to Thought.Co is “In the light of the moon.”

This fact is obviously less about the moon itself, but more about the feelings and creative inspiration it appears to give humans.

The moon's dust clings to everything because of the low gravity and texture, Listverse reports, and it has caused a number of problems for NASA.

The publication notes that moon dust has eroded astronauts boots and affected their visors, but it is also hazardous to human health.

In what is by far the most disturbing fact involving the moon, there was once a time when the United States considered destroying it with a nuclear explosion.

We know that the United States dropped two nuclear bombs on Japan in 1945, on the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, History reports. But we haven’t heard much about this secret project referred to as Project A119.

According to Space, it was during the 1950s Cold War period, and the United States proposed the idea as an attempt to prove strength while lagging behind in the space race.

Forbes has also reported on this project and notes it was nothing more than a “detailed thought experiment.”

The moon has mountains, and the tallest one (measured from base to top), according to Science Kids, is Mons Huygens, which measures 4700 meters tall.

The publication notes that this is around half the height of the tallest mountain on Earth, Mt. Everest, located in the Himalayan mountain range.

According to Space, unlike the mountains on earth which have been formed by magma or tectonic action, almost all of the mountains on the moon are the result of asteroids impacts in the past.

The Earth experiences quakes, and so does the moon, and according to Space, these quakes are caused by the Earth’s gravitational pull.
