A discussion about the moon landing (now more than 50 years ago!), life in space, the realities of living on Luna — and the fiction that considers these things, such as Red Moon by Kim Stanley Robinson. What will it take to create a livable Lunar settlement? In terms of territory, how can we choose who gets what slice of moon pie? How do we avoid inter-solar political crises stemming from “land” rights and commercial rights to objects in space?
