nice one. it would turn some construction method's on it's head and require thinking outside the box for everyone. what were the ideas?

Oh they went into farming - economic development - community design... all very interesting when you're 13!
It's in my folkes house... probably sandwiched between "the last whole earth catalog" and "Tintin destination Moon"!

If you though archeire was losing the run of itself try our national broadcaster.

As opposed to discussing space architecture they simply want to know:

that's stupid!
and we pay for this!!! ah! well...
there is a programe on different aspects to space every week night on discovery science ( channel 555) and some of it goes into colonies. one last week on lunar colonies. with some people predicting a vegas style city on the moon in 50-100 years....and this serving as a launch pad for deeper expeditions into the vast beyonds!

They are obviously playing for a reaction.

I think you are probably correct on mini Las Vegas springing up on the moon in that timeframe.

In the mean time all that R&D should filter down into general aerospace technology.

The Airbus A850 will be some development, London-Sydney direct in 2008.

thats very true and with no doubt even more when we do actually start building on the moon and not just aerospace. there was a machine that collected the dust or soil from the surface of the moon and made a brick type element. kinda like a cladding panel really more than a brick. it did this in a hour or something like that.
