The start of the Moon base begins with the Lunar Space Station going online. This is where Elon Musk’s SpaceX Lunar Starship, the HLS (Human Landing System) docks – picking up astronauts to take to the Lunar surface.
It only takes 3 days to reach the Moon. So technological development happens rapidly. From Lunar dust shields, a crater telescope, and a Boring Company tunnel digger digging out lava tubes for Lunar habitats, to a Lunar railroad using levitating cargo robots.
